Around and around until it goes flying off

Around and around until it goes flying off

Fire AlarmAs an artist I know that when I paint a picture for an exhibition I expect it to sell. Of course I do, I wouldn’t have painted it otherwise. I pay for it to be framed, I pay for it to be entered into an exhibition, and if it sells, I pay the percentage commission to the venue. If it doesn’t sell, I store it, and pay for it to be entered into another exhibition, and if it sells I pay the percentage commission to the venue. If it doesn’t sell again, the process goes on and on til it does sell. Sometimes I pay for it to go into a new frame, thinking that it may freshen the picture up and try it at the next exhibition. Sometimes I look at a picture and know its a good one but I just haven’t put it infront of the right person yet who will become its buyer. In the meantime, as a talented artist, I want to paint something else, some other subject matter that excites me, and want to sell the older work so that I can focus on the new work. I know that the older work is good, that it has a good value, but want to sell it to make room both mentally and physically for the new artwork I want to create.

And that’s why I’m haviCute kidsng a gallery sale this week on ebay 🙂

To make room, to get on with the new art that is inspiring and exciting me!Kiss (2)

I know that the gallery sale means that I am taking the chance that the pictures will sell at a far lower price than I would like. But at least they are going to someone who wants them, who will value them, and they will be put on someones wall for others to see. Thats what art should be, seen and admired, and valued!

Have a look at the pictures, there may be something you want, and the starting prices are so very low, here’s your chance to get some great artwork at very reasonable prices!

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.
