Exhibiting threesome

Exhibiting threesome

Birds of a feather (2)Since finishing the gorgeously purple hued “Queynte” of last week I was hoping to get on with the erotic drawing that is hopefully my next commission, but I’ve had to put that on hold for a couple of days as I wait for the client to send the deposit for it. No matter, there is always something else to do whilst I wait………….

So today has been sorting out which three paintings I will enter in another arts festival exhibition that is coming up soon. Its not an exhibition I’ve entered before so I can put in anything I think is suitable. Well, except for the erotic art, its one of those family fun day festivals where I wouldn’t consider putting in anything the remotely erotic since it wouldn’t be appreciated.  So in a way this is a good one for me, as I have two other art exhibitions a month before this one I’m talking about now, both on at the same time, and both I would like to exhibit at so its a case of juggling artwork and the best place for it. And this is where its always “best guess” for exhibition work. Shall I put in the tigers? or flowers? or landscapes? Or something abstract? Or a seascape? (I was talking to someone at the weekend who asked me what sort of art I did, and I gave her the usual long list of all that I do and added at the end “And that’s why galleries don’t like me, I don’t fit into one type of thing, I do so many!” and she said “I would have thought that was a GOOD thing!” and I nodded and replied “Yes, I think Cool regardso!”). But you never know that if you’d put another painting in another exhibition if it would have sold, or not. Did I just miss a sale because the picture was in a gold frame rather than an oak one? So…. for this particular exhibition there was one picture I definitely wanted in it, and since I am limited to only three pictures it was just a case of what I thought would be a good choice to go with it. An eclectic mix, but then most of my art is eclectic.Kiss 2

 

But one thing I do think has changed recently is that there seems to be a bit more money around than there has been for the last three years. Its just a feeling that I get from conversations with people in general. There seems to be more money in peoples pockets after the scary last couple of years of the recession. Money for people to spend on art, and decorating their homes. That is if the picture is the right one, in the right frame, for the right price.

 

Here’s my suggestions though……………… 🙂

 

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.
