Put me on hold til then

With a flourish, the artist signed her name, content in the fact that the painting, infact this most difficult of  difficult paintings, was completed. She stood back, and viewed her artwork, yes, it was all there, the castle, the dragon, the landscape, the muted colours, the flowing river, the setting sun, all there. And regardless of what it stood for, it looked good as an image, as a painting, all the important things were there and worked in conjunction with each other. She smiled, and happily stood there, drinking it all in. And looked for errors, for anything that could be changed or improved on. No, it was all there, there is nothing else to add to it. Finished.

So, with a smile she contacted the client to say “It’s done!” the painting is finished, and ready for your perusal, do you want me to email it across, or want to see it for yourself face to face? And he replied that he wanted to see it face to face, but not this week because it was Easter and he’s busy, so it will have to be next week. “Ok” I sighed, and have resigned myself that I’ll have to wait a week or more to be able to say that it is fully complete, and done.

So I’m in a bit of a lull til then.


So, I am decorating the house!

In the mean time, and since I’m in a lull, and since its Easter and traditionally the time that people do decorate after the cold winter, except its still bloody cold and wintery and white with snow where I am.  But I don’t want to start anything else art wise til I know I’ve properly finished this painting, and whilst the momentum is still there, although I’m having to wait a bit to find out.

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.
