Beyond infinity

Not only have I got Fitzys two commissions to do at the moment, I also have a local art exhibition coming up next week - its with the Ashby Guild of Artists at the village hall in Ticknall, South Derbyshire, if anyone is interested, is in the area, and wants to come along. It runs over the Saturday, Sunday and Monday 23rd, 24th and 25th of May from 10 til 5pm and I shall be there on the Saturday afternoon, stewarding. I enjoy the local art exhibitions, although I don't put anything erotic in it, as it might upset some of the old ladies who come along for a bun, cup of tea, and to look at nice pretty watercolours of flowers, kittens, and rural landscapes. Some of MY art is likely to give em heart attacks!!!! :)


So, I've been busy painting for that as well as doing Fitzys working paintings for the two canvas's he wants me to paint for him. And this has given me an opportunity to explore painting a universe painting. I've been wanting to do one for a few years, and thought that now is the time. I thought it would be easy, but I was wrong. It isn't. There's a lot of effects to get into space, and the stars are a little tricky to paint too - to get them looking like they're stars, far away, rather than polka dots, or daisies! But I've enjoyed doing it, once I found what I wanted to create and worked out how to do it. It's got colour and depth to it, and depth certainly helps when you want to paint space!!!!!!!! LOL


So, here it is, and I've called it "To infinity and beyond" - because it is beyond, there's a whole load of depth in it creating the infinity (is that the collective term for depth - load? Either way, there's a LOT of it!). Its done in oils, as I think oils depicts depth like this far better than any other medium. And it's not erotic, I haven't even put a naked woman or couple in it, so it won't upset the old ladies................................


Over this coming weekend I've got an art workshop to attend - its going to be still life in watercolour. It'll probably be a little quiet and staid to what I'm used to. The still life might be a hat, vase, flowers, an ornament, some fruit, a book, and a scarf artistically draped. That's what still life set ups are usually.


But its dawned on me........................... that that doesn't have to be the case. I could do an erotic still life :)


I could take some handcuffs, a blindfold, nipple clamps and a bull whip, for MY still life!!!!!!! LMAO


THEN it'd be EROTIC, wouldn't it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Mmmmm sounds like an exciting day you're going to have. I ... shall be relaxing the whole weekend, for a change! I don't intend lifting a finger! I like the 'To infinity and beyond' painting, very star trek!! Like your pussie n willie paintings... is there meant to be a hidden space ship Jackie?

Jackie Adshead said...

Indigo - Yes I will have. Glad you like the painting, I like the idea of an erotic spaceship just emerging!! :)

OMG!! Surely not. What would the other artists say if you turned up with the contents of Anne Summer's shop n draped them over the object to be drawn, I think you'd get thrown out! Shocking... totally.

Anonymous - I don't think I'd get thrown out, but I doubt the others would have been happy if I had. I didn't by the way....
