A while back I received a commission for an unusually shaped portrait of the legendary Mistress Venus .
She and the client were both happy with this and two more have followed since. The second one shows a fiendish piece of furniture into which the commissioner is firmly secured (dressed before as a maid). Around his head is strapped a leather nosebag stuffed full of the mistress’s fragrant stockings. On the wall hang others – equally as fragrant – belonging to Mistress Venus’s colleagues.
And what does Mistress Venus have in her hand? A remote control device that communicates to his lower organs, maybe, as we see by his petrified eyes above the nosebag and the amount of excitement collecting in the flask below.
