As the year-end approaches, it seems an appropriate time, for a number of reasons, to draw the final curtain on this personal homage to the FemDom Arts.
i do so with a painting called At Last My Lovely from the genre of romantic realism made popular by the contemporary Scottish artist and publisher, Jack Vettriano. In an intriguing study of couple power play, the kneeling male appears to be surrendering himself to the seated Woman whose background shadow dominates the picture.
While often regarded in a negative light by the art establishment, and in particular by a subset unhappy at his portrayal of Women’s sexuality, Vettriano’s hugely popular artwork is an unashamed celebratory narrative of Female Power. It has been said of the archetype noir Woman featured in his paintings that “she looks like a Woman to whom a pledge of eternal love might provoke her to stab you with a stiletto.”
i wish to express my heartfelt thanks to the many people who generously gave me support with this blog offering over the last three years and more, and in particular to Goddess Eva Luna for whom the blog was dedicated and to Nanshakh, FemDom artist supreme, for his endless encouragement.
