Heartbreaking…but heart consoling…

Heartbreaking…but heart consoling…

This week I was informed of the very sad news that that Peter in this painting I did for Miranda and Peter as their wedding present, had died. It came as a great shock. I hadn’t seen them since I did the painting for them a few years ago. Certainly far too short a time for me to hear this sad news.

But what I was so touched by, and I want to mention this part of it here…

Miranda, as she messaged me to give me the sad message, said that she treasured the wedding portrait more than ever.

I was so touched to hear that.

A painting is more than just a photograph, it is the whole of a lot of parts put together. This oil painting in particular had a lot of parts put in it to tell the story of “Peter and Miranda, past, present, and future”. It was my pleasure to put so much into it.. and such happy memories for the two of them, and for me the artist to create for them.

And I am touched to hear that my painting consoles, too. A painting from the heart, for two hearts, even when one is so sad….

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.
