.. three blind mice .. lalala.. only these 3 aren’t blind at all …..

a bit of fun again… my inner child having a ball. the grown up me had this idea for a new painting… and my inner child immediately picked up on it….. and tadaa here are those three mice.. a family of mice going for a stroll during a fullmoon night. the first positive comment on facebeook said … that my art makes her smile. what a wonderful compliment. there is enough bad stuff around us… and smiles are so important. so this is my way of giving smiles to people. i hope it works..

wishing you all a wonderful thursday…. love and light… and many smiles…… pat

… still with them bumbly bees… and a little more ..

i admit.. my creativity took a rest lately. i have been doodling a lot though….. i find that very relaxing and inspiring also.. and as you will be able to see further down.. my mind is still with the bees. so actually, my creativity did not take a rest.. just moved on to a different level … however.. i also did a painting today… called it The Sound of Silence… very outsider art, art brut, art singulier. simple… yet not.

other than that… i don’t have much to say… am a bit quiet too at the moment. need to arrange my new studio… empty those moving boxes… arrange everything……

take care all.. blessings to all.. and much love and light πŸ™‚ … pat β™₯

p.s. .. and listen to the sound of silence.. and i don’t necessarily mean the song by simon and garfunkel πŸ˜‰ even though the song of course is very beautiful πŸ™‚

ah yes.. the sound of silence measures app. 15 x 21 centimeters and is for sale πŸ™‚

.. i LOVE bumblebees .. what about you ??

my latestet painting…… is a little bumblebee .. kinda lost in all those flowers that are there. but .. it is a happy bumblebee because there ARE so many flowers there πŸ™‚ bumblebee heaven you could say πŸ™‚

this little painting was painted on paper i recycled… originally it was an advertisement sent to my house. i had no use for the stuff advertised… but i had use for the paper, which is strong quality. so i gessoed it several times.. with clear gesso and black gesso.. several layers of it.. to preserve my little painting et voilΓ  … Bumblebee Heaven πŸ™‚

WHERE IS THE BUMBLEBEE? – WO IST DIE HUMMEL ?

… so i was told to quit keeping it to myself…

… and so i wont … only a few days of not being on wordpress and everything seems to have changed again… but maybe this is just my impression of things. anyway.. yes i have not been here for a while.. been too busy creating stuff πŸ™‚ and had a close encounter with an orthodontist on tuesday.. now i’ve got a lump in my face.. but no more pain and i hope the stitches will come out soon.. the only yuck think about it is.. that i have to take antibiotics because i am in a chemotherapy.. oh well… won’t keep me from being artsy πŸ™‚

i won’t say much more… just uploading some of the things i created and also managed to sell πŸ™‚ yay to that !! wishing you all a wonderful rest of the week and a happy weekend to come πŸ™‚ love and light….. pat πŸ™‚

that yellow background with clear gesso and acrylic ink …

that particular backround i mentioned in my last blog post… remember? the muse was nudging me along .. in that direction… of course… i could not resist my muse and started to work on that background… just went with the flow.. and this little drawing evolved.. it is really VERY mixed media.. mucholy so… starting with the background for which i used clear gesso… and then yellow and a bit of red acrylic ink…… and THEN some titan white to top it off… oh i love to create backgrounds… is it noticeable ?? anyway… that particluar background was ready for more… and it started with the house at the bottom… i used an ordinary pencil for that…. then i added ballpoin pen… and THEN i added black pastel pencil….. and thus my little drawing happened… and its title is.. Haus der TrΓ€ume / House of Dreams… hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚ love and light to all !

.. prepping backgrounds… trying out new stuff.. this and that

today i seem to be really busy… after cleaning my flat – got visitors tomorrow .. ! – and getting my first bit of a tan on my NEW BIG SUNNY BALCONY .. and then preparing lunch… i decided to try out some new things i got. i usually use white gesso as a primer… – on anything.. paper, canvas, wood – but the other day i ordered transparent and black gesso. ok .. black gesso i knew already but transparent one, was new to me. so been giving it a try on various papers and i am looking forward to see what happens. … below a little bit of “visual info” … πŸ™‚

so… here a few pics of the various gessos i used… the yellow one is … transparent gesso then yellow acrylic ink over it.. i am working on that one.. something is in there that my muse finds fascinating so.. going with the flow on that one. the others still have to wait a bit. top left… you see a bit of my workspace… actually THAT is my dining room and as i have guests for LUNCH tomorrow……. yup… i will have to put it all in a box and then… just re-arrange my “improvised studio” in the evening. my real studio is still full of moving boxes AND.. most importantly… i need two more tables.. 3 are not enough. plus.. i would need another bookshelf.. or something like that… but… one by one….. i cannot do it all in one day πŸ™‚ as for the tables… i will see what the salvation army has in its secondhand shop … they usually have fabulous things !!

so let me see what happens with that yellow mixed media painting.. you might be seeing it again ! have a lovely weekend !!

oh my gosh.. .. a new life .. and so much happening

dear friends.. dear readers

my chemotherapy makes me very tired… a fact which really made me angry at the beginning.. i fought against it, could not accept it… wanted it to go away. but fatigue doesn’t just “go away”. fatigue is – or can be – totally overwhelming.. i walked around like a zombie.. and i would avoid sitting on the sofa cause i knew.. the moment i sat on it.. i would fall asleep. so .. i sat on uncomfortable chairs, just to keep me awake. i would purposely stay active… do something.. anything.. just to get away from fatigue. of course.. – yes you guessed correctly – all of that did not work.. on the contary.. it made it worse. fatigue turned into a huge black wave.. that would just catch me.. engulf me.. and drag me along.. into the land of sleep. my sleep is so deep that i cannot hear the phone ring.. nor the alarm clock.. nor the doorbell. i am out of it.. completely.. almost “unconscious”… a goner…… zilch……. out….. just blackness surrounding me.

but things have changed… and that is the “new life” part… i realize that my sleep is there for a reason. it has a purpose.. it even has a healing quality… this “revelation” was initiated by a dear friend of mine.. who prayed for me … and during her prayer i had this.. aha moment.. and there was a flow of energy entering me.. it was a totally amazing feeling and it changed my point of view. i still have cancer related fatigue though.. every day… every hour.. every minute… but during my friend’s prayer i suddenly was able to change perspectives.. i.e. sleep was not my enemy, but my friend. so now.. i have made adjustments to my life.. in the mornings.. i am awake.. i do my stuff, the householdy stuff… and once the flat is cleaned… well sort of.. … it is art time. art.. is amazing.. art heals… art gives me energy.. art makes me happy.. when i am creating something.. i do not feel the fatigue.. it is there.. but i do not feel it. i am on a different level.. i enjoy what i am doing and it gives me so much.. i feel so blessed and happy… that i have this gift., that i was given this gift !… it is such a great help now πŸ™‚ ok. that was a long story…. at 4.30 p.m. though… i am off. i go and lay down on my bed.. and within 10 minutes max.. i sleep.. sometimes 2 hours… sometimes 3.. once i even slept til almost 10 p.m. !!! .. wow.. but i have come to terms with things… and i have re-arranged my life.. so that my body gets what it needs.. sleep.. a LOT of it… but also energizing stuff like.. art.. or a workout at the gym … a walk.. or just sitting on the balcony and enjoying the sun πŸ™‚

now to the wowowow part πŸ™‚ i sold two paintings this week. isn’t that absolutely amazing?? both of them are off to the USA on monday. ! so here they are… take a look.. and i have many more paintings waiting for a new home… :)) i wish you all a marvellous day.. be happy, take care.. stay healthy…. wear that mask darn it !!!! .. and be good πŸ™‚

love and light………. pat β™₯

a big THANK YOU to the collectors who bought my art. i am very grateful… and i wish you lots of joy and happiness with my art !!

.. a little bit of day.. and a little bit of night ….

i published my new art in various facebook groups, of which i am a member… and i got a wonderful compliment from one admin… when he saw my art his comment was.. a little bit of Klee .. and a little bit of Chagall … wow.. i feel really honoured to have my art described in such a way. it made my day !!

so what’s this all about ?? my latest two mixed media drawings… one a night time one.. the other .. a day time one.

both are mixed media drawings… for the warm spring day i used ballpoint pen, felt tipped pens and wax pastles… for the night painting i used acrylic ink, wax pastels. both are for sale.. and both of them are available as prints and on products in both my Redbubble and my FineartAmerica / Pixels.com stores.
