Valentine’s day with lovers

Valentine’s day with lovers

Its St Valentines Day and I’ve spent it with a couple of lovers 🙂  I’ve been busy putting a smile on the face of the man and creating the twinkle in his eye as well as turning my attentions to his wife and her softer skin. I haven’t got to her cherry red lips yet though, that will have to wait til next time.  

The fact that they were on canvas and I was creating them in acrylic paint means that I have actually spent the day on my own. But later on I will spend it with my own Valentine and a nice bottle of rose wine over a home cooked meal, and maybe a bar of turkish delight since we both love it.

We were explRoses are red (2)aining to a friend of ours last weekend that Valentines Day has changed over the last few years. When I was a teenager you’d get a card from a secret admirer, who you hoped was the best looking lad you fancied but was more likely to be the spotty guy you never noticed behind you when you walked for the school bus. I remember the exhilarating thrill of receiving a card, and the cryptic note that would be written in it, reading and re-reading the message to soak up every delicious word and its hidden meaning. And later receiving red roses and words of seductive love again, and being taken out for meals and wine and looking into the eyes of a lover feeling the warm delight of being wanted and loved.  That for me is Valentines Day…….

So on this special day for lovers, I wish you happiness and true undying love. And my own red roses here in watercolour entitled “Roses are red” …. xx

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.
