Jam and naked women

Why is it that I've been painting for years, have had a website for over five years but its only since I've told people I'm an erotic artist that their interest in me has manifested itself? Mmmm.... I wonder why! So last Saturday night whilst I'm standing chatting to friends in the pub, someone introduced me to a new face and was told that I'm an erotic artist. "Really?" she said, here we go, I thought, what's coming next and was totally unprepared for the question "Will you come and talk to the W.I?" - "What? Are you serious?" I asked and she agreed she was indeed!! "But I thought the W.I were all jam and Jerusalem, knitting and pretty flower arrangements, won't my subject matter curl the hair of the blue rinse brigade?" Apparently not! This particular group are easy going, very broad-minded and good fun and I've been booked to appear, to chat and tell them what I get up to.............. I can't wait!!!!!

W.I.=Women of Israel?

Older people are interested in, and having, sex too. Look at us! And I was reading an article today about New York City starting an AIDS awareness program for people in their 70s. Seems we old goats aren't ready to quit having fun yet!

Vi - I'm laughing at your glee, and sharing it!!!

Cherrie - WI is "Womens Institute" - traditionally considered strait-laced, upright pillars of the rural community, for whom cake baking and church bazzars is their main interest. Hence my surprise at them wanting to hear what an erotic artist gets up to!!

It's a great opportunity to show your traditional work as well as your erotic art!

Jackie Adshead said...

Hornymaleuk - yes it is, if they're going to be interested in landscapes and tigers as opposed to nakedness and erotica!

Good for you, Jackie!...And I do understand the comment about being an "erotic" artist. An artist is an artist, no matter what their medium or message...that's the whole point.

I just started a second blog that I want to show more of me than simply my sexual interests.... Haven't had more than three people...TOTAL...look at it. You have my support and empathy.

Jackie Adshead said...

Ronjazzz - Thankyou for your supportive comments, and yes, you're right - an artist is an artist, whatever they paint.

Given the phenomenal success of the WI nude photographic calendar, you may get commissioned for an erotically drawn version of the next one....

Jackie have you not seen Calendar Girls ?

Lady in red said...

I know my 'friend' emailed you about your comment on my blog but he wont tell me what he said to you. I am guessing that hes plotting something but I shall be a good girl and resist asking you what ;-)

Jackie Adshead said...

Luka - Wow, I'd LOVE to do that!

Jackie Adshead said...

Lady in Red - yes I've seen Calendar Girls - wonderful film! Wouldn't it be brilliant if this was the start of the next one??

Jackie Adshead said...

Lady in Red - yes your "friend" has been in touch with me. You don't expect I'm going to tell you what he said do you? The question is whether you'll like it.....or not.....
