No wonder I’m weary it’s all that screwing

No wonder I’m weary it’s all that screwing

My hands ache. But it’s hardly surprising, I’ve been screwing  all day long. I’ve screwed and screwed and screwed, and that’s one of the reasons I hate mirror plates on paintings, cos each picture has two mirror plates and each mirror plate has two screws, and each screw must be no more than the depth of the frame, and some of them are so small I’ve had to use the tiniest brass screws I’ve got – an eighth of an inch long (that’s about three millimetres for those of you who understand those new fangled things 🙂 ). And as well as those I’ve had to screw in the hooks to hang the cord on, tie the cord and seal it off with masking tape, and label the paintign on the back with the details of the painting – you know, title of the painting, the medium its painted in(watercolours, acrylics, pencil, etc), the artists name (that’s me!!!) and the price (very reasonable, of course!). So I bet you’re wondering why I’m tired – well that would be because I’ve done sixteen of the blessed things (including the one featured here – Tickled pink”).  Sixteen paintings to finish off, ready to go and hang on some new walls next week. It’s been a mammoth task getting them all ready, and has taken far longer than I expected, and I’ve not wasted any time on it. So, I’m weary. And ready to eat something simple but hot for dinner (fancy fishcakes with some green vegetables, and wine, oh yes, there will be wine!) So….. this blog post won’t be as long as usual,  its not going to be full of the latest painting I’ve finished this week (three to be exact! I’ve had a very prolific week) or what they are about (suffice to say, sexy ladies doing sexy things – but I’ll tell you about them another day, and I’m sure you’ll be more than happy to hear about them!).

 

……..but I’ll tell you more about it next week.

I’m off to lavish my poor hands in some thick opulent hand cream, and to find the wine bottle, with probably another one in reserve. Just in case.

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.
