On board

On board

Poppy appealI’ve just had an email from the woman who organising the artboards this year  saying how fantastic all the boards are and she thinks its the best year ever and what talented people they have supporting the festival. She thanked us for all the time and effort we put into producing the boards and thinks the general public are in for a treat. She hoped we enjoyed the experience, especially the new painters and that we will all want to take part again next year.  I thanked her for giving me the opportuniaty to do it and said how much I’d enjoyed it. She’s told me where my artboard will be hung in the town and I can’t wait to see it in-situ. Photos and details to follow in my next blog post!

 This last couple of days I’ve been busy sorting out which pictures are going in which exhibition at the end of May. Its a bit of a logistical problem as I have to be in two places at the same time over that weekend, but with a plea for a little lee way I think I can do it……………..  I’ve just framed my favourite painting of recent times and it looks brilliant now its being shown off to its best advantage. Its called “Poppy appeal” and is full of vibrant warm colours. The frame and mount are pale in comparrison to it to make the painting zing out. I love it! And hope its soon going to a new home that loves it as much as I do…..

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.
