What super powers would you choose?

What super powers would you choose?

The thing I love about being an artist is that whenever I meet new people they usually pause a bit when I say I’m an artist, then ask “Can you paint……. ?” and tell me what the thing is that they want me to do for them. And my answer is always “Yep, I can do that for you, what do you want me to paint it in, and what size will you want it?” The picture in question this time sounded just the sort of thing I love doing – of a customized trike, with the guy riding it, and his naked wife infront of him bent over the trike but  morphing into it as well and becoming part of the machine. Yeh, I’ll lurve doing that one! But I’ve got to wait a bit before I can get going on it, as the couple live in Southampton but will be visiting relatives in the Midlands at some point and we’ll meet up to discuss it properly then and take photos as I need them. Its only a *proposed Kneel forwardidea* at the moment but I think the guy was totally serious about it and I made it clear to him that it’s just MY sort of painting!


I had a great time with good friends over the weekend, drinking copious amounts of wine, and laughing, as you do with people you feel at ease with. And the subject got around to super powers, as we all considered what ONE super power we each would have, given the choice. And interestingly enough, we all chose different ones – the clever educated one chose to live for eternity, so that he could pass on his growing knowledge and keep learning all the time.  His beautiful and extrovert girlfriend wanted the ability to be invisible. My fella wanted the ability to see seven days ahead, which would be an incredibly useful one for all sorts of reasons. And I wanted the ability to suggest , which sounds a mild one but it would be an extremely powerful one… so that I could say things like ” I think you should buy my art because you think its the most wonderful art you have ever seen”  and people would happily buy it, or “I think you as a rich person should invest in us starving artists”  and they would because they felt they wanted to, to improve their lives, and I know I could do good with it too by suggesting to someone who had committed a crime that they should repay their victim with a massive kindness, or an abject apology, or whatever would be needed to make reparation. That would be MY super power.

But what would you choose, if you were given the chance….?   and why?

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.
