You don’t think anything’s happening until Indianapolis finds you

You don’t think anything’s happening until Indianapolis finds you

As an artist I know its important to get my name out so people find me. Where ever *out* is!

This last week I’ve been photographing, and sorting through, and making decisions on, some artwork that I’ve done in the past as well as new stuff.

As well as having discussions with someone who wants a commission doing too, but although most of the ideas for the painting have been decided there are a few smaller decisions which haven’t been finalised fully, so I can’t start that one yet.

So, in the mean time I go back to the artwork that I am trying to sell on line.

I know which pieces are the most popular, I know which ones are likely to sell first (although I am sometimes surprised on THAT one!! lol ).

And I know I want to start another painting this week and have a good idea what that will be.

So, I feel that I am getting there.

That things are where they ought to be, at this moment in time.

Its a waiting game, and whilst I’m waiting I am busy with work in progress.

And that’s it really.

Until yesterday, when I had an email asking me how much it would cost to send a painting of mine that I am trying to sell, to Indianapolis.

Wow!

Things are happening, in the background. Someone’s noticed more than I thought, and that person apparently lives in Indianapolis…!

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.
