Happy Birthday Blog…Ten years old today!

Wow…. My Blog is Ten Years old today…!!

It was on 6th March 2007 that I first started writing this blog about my life as an artist and the art I’ve created over the years. I started writing about two or three blog posts then but its slightly lessened in recent years in that I try to do one or two blog posts a week now, hopefully about subjects that are vaguely interesting to others,  and have written over 920 blog posts in the last ten years….

Its where I feature my new artwork or talk about paintings I’m working on.

Its where I explain my working processes to show how my paintings are created.

Its where I share some of the strange conversations I have with various people regarding art. Since when you do erotic art it seems to invite odd conversations, mostly to my amusement, and sometimes to my total confusion!

And its where I report back the positive and upbeat feedback I have from clients regarding the special paintings I’ve done for them.

And its where I’ve made friends with other bloggers around the world.

I always love it when people I know in real life tell me they’ve read a blog post, or someone emails me, or tells me via Facebook or my website that something interested them or their insights into my interpretation of one of my paintings.

So, thanks for reading!

 

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.
