I’ve just completed the 9th painting for my new erotica art collection. I am bursting at the seams keeping it under cover because I still have the tenth piece to complete plus I have to paint the sides of all the paintings I’ve done, document them, photograph them, and on and on. Little details take forever it seems and I don’t want to miss any before I show the full collection, something I believe is important to do, to show it as a cohesive body of work rather than individual pieces I’m working on as I’ve done in the past.
There’s so much good stuff to say on this new collection aside from the fact that it’s super sexy. In the simplest form, I finally let go of some issues I had as an artist (years and years of trying to do this) and what manifested on the canvas has turned out more wonderful than imagined. I don’t care if nobody likes it one bit. I am in love with what I’m painting right now, with its entire process of creation. Focusing on this painting project (since mid-Sept) has deeply challenged me and I’ve grown as an artist in style, quality, commitment and skill to just name a few ways.
I’m very happy with the direction my art is going, which is much more sexually expressive than my past work. Right now I’m following this path. I’m not sure why it took so long to get to this point artistically but painting this current collection has become more natural to me than writing erotica fiction or even photographing Playboy models or private clients. Something clicked this time and everything flowed almost effortlessly and joyfully despite a few painting challenges.
My art is finally grounded, consistent and cohesive. I think its sprouting really happened when I discovered the Natural Earth Paints. By summer-time I felt confident with them, as though an extension of my artist self: a perfect tool. Though in a cold winter, the artistic visions and quality have bloomed. You’ll see. Soon. Ok, in January but considering the holidays are very near, it’s not that far off. :)
