Imprinted on my heart

Invitation

It wasn’t a date as such, but it had been planned that we would meet, and I walked up the street wondering what his reaction would be. Would be be happy, or disappointed in me. There was only one way to find out. I took a deep breath, and walked expectantly through his door, with a gentle smile on my face, and waited avidly in agonised silence for him to notice me. After a few drawn out minutes, he  eventuallydid. He caught my eye and knew exactly why I was there.

Icarefully reached into my bag, and passed him the small precious item I had brought especially, for him. He took it from me without a word, and turned away. I knew what he would do with it, although I knew he didn’t value it as much as I treasured it.

Another long silence…….

He looked intently at the images that rose up  infront of him, conjuring them with his hand and fingers, noting the nuances of detail, and colour but not interested in the subject matter.

And then he spoke.

“They’re fine, there’s plenty of detail there, enough to use easily!”

Phew, I smiled at him, and he smiled back.

He knew what difficulties I had had to get to that point, and for the printer guy to give me the go-ahead was a long awaited dream come true.

I can now do prints of my artwork.

It doesn’t sound like a big thing, but actually, it’s a huge thing.

I've been an artist all of my life, and my paintings now hang on walls in Europe, USA and Canada. I'm working on getting them on the other continents! My wide range of artwork has been exhibited nearer to home in the East Midlands, with the Guild of Erotic Artists at Beaumont Hall Studios in Hertfordshire, and at "Erotica", Olympia, London. I have also been featured alongside my work in the Guild of Erotic Artists book (volume 2). I love to create dramatic interest in my pictures, whether it’s to paint an unusual landscape, or just to utilise dramatic lighting in my figure drawings or strong colour in my animal portraits. Delighting in the spontaneous tendencies of watercolour adds an interesting and distinctive look to my paintings, some of which are purposefully ambiguous, enabling the viewer to use their own interpretation of my artwork. I also love to hide images, and humour within my paintings, whether it’s a secret message, or an erotic couple hidden within a landscape, or even an erotic landscape where the couple are camouflaged as the features of the land itself. I am equally happy painting in oils, acrylics or watercolours and love to draw with pencil or ink. I have also developed the very effective method of drawing using white pencil on black card which creates dramatic pictures by just picking out where the light catches the body and leaving the rest of the image to the imagination, in darkness. I can also utilise many different styles, whether it is realistic, abstract, surrealistic, erotic, fantasy or camouflage art where something is hidden within the painting. I'm just passionate about my art, whatever I paint! But, it doesn't matter how many landscapes or pet portraits I paint, its always the erotic stuff that people are interested in! I started blogging to share some of the strange conversations I have with the people I meet. But its evolved into far more than that now.
