Happy Christmas to you

Happy Christmas to you

It’s that time of year when I’ve finished the commissions I’ve done for clients for Christmas and I can sit back and relax.

It’s also the time of year when its a joy to hear from family and friends wishing me a happy Christmas with cards and messages and catching up on news over this past year.

It’s also the time when I catch up with neighbours, and I really loved the comment one of my neighbours said about the summer when we all had a drink and catch up chat together, for the Queens Platinum Jubilee celebrations, that we ought to do it more often, and I totally agree. We all enjoy catching up at Christmas for the same reasons..

It was also very heartwarming when a good friend I’d not seen since August turned up unexpectedly yesterday to wish my husband and me a happy Christmas and catch up. We drank tea around the kitchen table in that compionable way of good friends.. although I offered food she hadn’t got time to stay. Next time I see her we’ll have a proper drink though!!

The Christmas tree is up, and decorated, as is the house with seasonal lights and festive decorations. The Christmas cake and mince pies are made, and everything else is ready. Its going to be a quiet Christmas but that doesn’t matter.

So…I’d like to wish you a very Happy Christmas and hope you have a wonderful happy time with family and friends.

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.
