You made everything special

This is a tiny ink painting from 2004 which has been hanging on a bedroom wall in Canada since my exhibition in Nicosia. It is somewhat bluer than this and made in an ink that is so soluble and responsive, breaking up into so many subtle colours, that I fear it may not be massively light fast. If it fades it will be a pity, for this drawing captured such an intense erotic mood with more concern for emotional content and happy accidents of line than concern for anatomical accuracy. I recently saw an equally tiny, if not even tinier, erotic ink drawing made in a similar way in a sketch book of Turner in an exhibition in London. It has inspired me to make more....
