Silvery moments

Silvery moments

I delivered the “Happy couple at the beach” painting at the weekend to the couple who had commissioned it. They had paid me for it and seen the image via an email but it’s not the same as seeing it properly, face to face.

Their reaction, when they did see it, was one of delight and happiness. Which always makes me feel happy when I get that reaction! happy-couple-at-the-beach

They stood admiring it, and he joked that the painting would be framed that afternoon and on the wall, since she was so enamoured with it! She told me where they would hang it in their house and the colour scheme of the room in question and I nodded admiring her choice of colours. They were debating what colour frame to choose, and she mentioned a silver one, and I totally agreed with her that it would set it off really well.

But whatever it would be, she promised that she would send me a photo of it hanging on the wall, and I thanked her. I do love to see my paintings hanging on other people’s walls and seeing the frame and mount they’ve chosen for it, it finishes the painting off so much.

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.
