Proudly perusing my paintings in pride of place

Proudly perusing my paintings in pride of place

One of the things that always makes me very happy is to see where my paintings end up after I’ve painted them and put all my love and dedication into them, and know that they are going off to live elsewhere to make other people happy.

I was told by the new owners of “Angel with red hair and pagan symbols” at Christmas time that they wanted their kitchen/dining room walls redecorated as soon as they could arrange it and wouldn’t hang the large canvas painting until they knew they could show it off in their favoured position.

So, how delightfully lovely at the end of January when its cold and grey outside to hear from the clients via a Twitter message……

“Thank you @jackieadshead …. kitchen/dining room now decorated & painting taken pride of place……

it really does look great. I can highly recommend your work Jackie to anyone who is looking to get a special done”

And I couldn’t have thought of a better setting for it, the white walls set off the colours and tone. The decorative moulding on the walls is simple but geometric so they don’t affect the viewing of the painting and the spacing between them couldn’t have been more perfect!!!!

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.
