A brush with time

A brush with time

I love painting, infact I am never happier than when I’m painting.

But you can have too much of a good thing, even when its something that you love doing. In the last 10 days I have had a paint brush in my hand for many long painting sessions, right into the night. Weilding colour, as it transforms the surface, seeing the changes it brings, and loving the effect. The fact that my much looked forward to plans for Easter had to be cancelled at the very last minute due to totally unforeseen circumstances relating to someone else all together, meant that I had more free time to paint, which should have been a good thing. But, funnily enough, it wasn’t.

Cos the painting I’ve been doing has transformed the kitchen, the utility room, the downstairs loo,  the spare bedroom, the bathroom, the hall, the stairs, and landing. And lovely as it all looks, its not “proper” painting!

But, now, with a pristine house, I can get back to what I really love to do, painting  in the proper style 🙂

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.
