Waiting, putting the poised pencil to one side

Its been a strange week, not helped that I am slightly out of sorts through tooth problems and being on antibiotics. Oh joy, no alcohol. A visit to the dentist today should clear up the dental problem, and by next week I should feel back to my normal self. Whatever passes for normal in my life, anyway.

And in the meantime I am waiting, for various people to get back to me regarding artwork they want me to do for them.

One guy is sorting out some photos for me, as well as more information to enable me to design a very interesting picture full of meaning, for him.

Another guy is waiting to get over an operation so that he can come and pose for me, along with his wife.

And a third guy, after a gentle email reminder from me this week rang me almost immediately after I’d sent it, explaining how much he wants it done, but due to various business, legal, family problems (all of which he told me about in some detail but I shan’t mention here) I could see exactly why he had to put the artwork he wants so much, on hold for a while.

So, I know that some weeks are busy ones, and some quiet. This one has been a quiet one, art wise. But, don’t think for one minute that I’ve not been busy, I have, with other things 🙂

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.
