Happy New Year to 2023

Happy New Year to 2023

Its always with interest and intrigue and hope that we look forward to new years and wonder what they will bring us. But its also a time of year that we are reminded of what the previous year has been…and I was reminded of that big time at the New Years Eve party I went to….

The party was great fun, my husband and I arrived there at 8 pm, all dressed up for the party, and didn’t leave until after 2 am… in that time we chatted a lot to various people, including some good friends, it was a great atmosphere we listened to the dance music, and danced, and drank lots of vodka, always my happy drink! There were about 150 people there at the party, the atmosphere was fun, and easy going, and we had a great time. But it also dawned on me whilst we chatted to various friends that three couples there had artwork that I had created for them…….

And the most specific reminder was from the couple who I painted the wedding present for – of the two of them on a beach, him as Poseidon, and she as a mermaid. I hadn’t seen them since they had collected the painting from me, just over a year ago so it was lovely to be reminded of the painting I had created for them, as its one of the ‘erotic landscape’ types of paintings I do – with boob rocks in the sea, and a cock rock in the distance, and a fanny cave in the cliff..tasteful erotic.

But what I was most interested to hear from the guy was when he and his wife came to collect the painting from me (which she had designed through me as her wedding present to him) was that he was fascinated with the painting I had hanging on my studio wall, which I had done some years ago for someone else, and I knew at the time was so clever that I wanted to paint a version of it for myself.. because that is a true erotic landscape and he hadn’t picked up the couple hidden within the picture until I pointed it out to him.. so I was again delighted that it had made such an important impression on him!

So as I look forward to this year i wonder what pictures I will be painting for clients. Because thats the challenge for me knowing that clients ask for artwork I hadn’t considered and I know that I can paint what they ask for.

And I also know that I have a painting half finished on my easel in my studio that I want to get on and finish too…and although its not an erotic landscape, it is a painting that is inspiring me massively!

So, I wish for you, what I wish for myself this year, a year of wonder, and happiness, and creative joy……

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.
