London here I come

Right, my blogging's been quiet recently because I've not had chance to do it along with everything else on my plate at the moment! Not that things are going to lessen in the near future either.........

After a lot of consideration regarding the Fantasy Fanny "Queynte" paintings, and the best place to hang them, I've decided to by-pass a "proper" gallery, for the moment anyway, as most of them won't be interested because of the content of the subject matter, plus they will want at least half my takings in gallery commission, so if I can do it without them, I'll try! Its always a difficult decision whether to use a gallery, or try without one. So, to this end, I needed to find a venue that had people who like art and people who like erotica, and people who are likely to want to buy it. MMm........ Ah, yes, I can think of a place that fits that description exactly! So I rang up last week to speak to the organisers to find that there wasn't any "art gallery space" left. "Ok, then, I'll forget that idea, hey but hang on a minute, is there anywhere else within the venue that I can exhibit my art?" And lo and behold - there is!!!!!! YAY!!!! So - the venue is EROTICA 2008 at Olympia in London on Friday 21st, Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd November, and the rest of the information you should need regarding what else is happening at EROTICA, will be on the EROTICA website. My stand is a small one, upstairs, away from the main art gallery, but still exhibiting at Erotica. And as far as I'm concerned, its the ideal place for me to take my fannies. I think they will be different to the other erotic artwork there, and hopefully I'll sell some commissions to anyone who wants one, but also, the bloggers who already have had theirs done, will have the opportunity to come a view theirs too, if they so wish. And to meet me too, if they want to.

This is all big stuff for me, but from the reaction I've had from people so far, I think the Fantasy Fanny collection has touched a chord somewhere for women, so this venue is the place where I find out if my thoughts are correct........

Oh, and the latest fanny is complete and here it is......Queynte 8.
Right, now I'm busy on to the next ones......
