That’s what I call absolute trust

That’s what I call absolute trust

I know I’ve talked a little about the painting I’m working on at the moment.

It’s a painting that is a surprise Christmas present for some one, but its been ordered and discussed and planned and paid for by someone else. Nothing unusual in that, of course, and a wonderful gift I think from the person who is paying for it, to the person who will be receiving it.

The client is someone I have met, as is the person who is receiving the gift. black-white-red-hint1

The client and I have only discussed this week the way that the painting will be transported from artist to buyer. The client asked me to wrap it up for them, and then said something that intrigued me…. since they have only seen the snippets of the images I have shown on social media, as they requested.

“The painting is going to look so good I can’t wait to see it. “ black-white-and-red-hint-4

I smiled at that comment and replied that I couldn’t wait for them to see it too, and did they want me to send the finished image by email for them to see it?

The reply came back straight away and stated that …..

The buyer doesn’t want to see the painting before it is handed over and opened by their significant other on Christmas Day, and that will be the first time the buyer has seen it in its entirety too.

Wow, total and absolute trust in me as an artist and knowing that I will create this beautiful and evocative painting as we have discussed and planned it.


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.
