Lumping it all together

Lumping it all together

When you get news that doesn’t go in the direction you were expecting it’s natural to think that it was a from a bad decision. My philosophy is always to go to the positive, to learn from the negative and move on in a positive way. But it doesn’t mean that you don’t lump all the bad decisions together and think that the whole lot of them make one big negative and perhaps its time for a change. Any change. A massive change altogether in another direction.

But if you can do that with the bad, then you can also do it with the good, I’m telling myself! Take the good and lump it all together and find the positive stuff then out of it. And there is an awful lot of positive. And maybe the positive will go in the direction I want it to go in, but maybe I have to find a slightly different way around the maze to get there. A dead end should be learnt from. Start again and go in another direction.

So………………………… I know what I can do, its just letting others find out about it too.

The route isn’t an easy one though.

And possibly not the one I had hoped it would be.

Breath of fresh air

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.
