Actually its not three Continents, its four!

Actually its not three Continents, its four!

This week I sent a painting off to Australia, and was delighted to do so, not just because the person loved the picture and wanted it on her wall, but because Australia is a new continent for me to have my artwork in. Making it the third continent for me, I thought and truly an International Artist (of repute?!).

But it was only thinking  today more specifically about the different countries and artwork I have sold to various clients over the years that I realised  with a jolt that its not three, its actually four…

 

The first one of course is Europe, you’d expect me to say that, since I have pictures the length and breadth of England, and also in Wales, Ireland, and Scotland. And to my knowledge in Cyprus and France… although when an artist sells artwork they may know who and where the picture was sold to, but not necessarily where it ends up! So I can only tell you what I know, not what I don’t know…!

 

The second continent is America since I have artwork hanging on walls in at least three states of America, including these two brightly coloured and pretty “Living flame” painting  and the sexy couple in “Hot stuff”, plus one painting in Canada.. again, that I know of. Although now I think about it, I seem to recall doing this delicate watercolour painting of Repton Cross and Church quite a few years ago to be given to a woman returning to America… so maybe there’s a fourth state..

 

The third one that I was counting is Australia, as I mentioned earlier. And I’ll tell you more about that painting another time.

 

 

And then I remembered that although I sold a painting to someone in England a couple of years ago, this one called “Man of mystery” – depicting an enigmatic man in a beautiful red and gold venetian mask on a red leather sofa, the guy who I sold it to emailed me the following year to say that I might be interested to know that a Chinese visitor to his house fell in love with the painting and took it back with her to Guangzhou in China.

So, Asia it is then, making it four! 🙂

 

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.
