Christmas is the time

Christmas is the time

Christmas is the time of year when I look back on December and know its been busy, with getting the household jobs done, the presents bought and wrapped and ready, the Christmas cards written out and sent to friends and extended family, and I always love to make my favourite White Christmas cake full of dried fruit, lemon and orange peel, luscious vanilla and almond flavours. After that I make my mince pies, and then I feel I can relax and most everything else is done and ready.

And I know that what I love best about Christmas is the happy feeling of being remembered, and remembering other loved ones, those who are still in my life, and those who have died. I remember the happy Christmas’s of my childhood and all the others since then.

And its the first Christmas this year that I am celebrating with my new husband, so we have those happy memories to make this year with our own traditions.

So, to everyone I know, I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Christmas, and hope you have a fabulous time with those you love, and have more happy memories of your own to make..

 

 

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.
