Cedric Octopus Sitting in a Cloud of Deep Violet Ink ..a title says it all …

downsized

… just the other day i was thinking out loud.. title or no title… reveal my thoughts about my painting .. or not ? do i want to “guide” the viewers into my painting.. into my world.. or should i let them explore on their own.. find their own story.. meaning.. adventure ?? i decided to…… go with the flow. if the painting calls for an elaborate, story-like title, fine. if not.. fine by me too. this one… definitely wanted a longish title. cedric the octopus is sitting in his deep violet inky cloud and thinking.. meditating perhaps?? whilst life goes on around him.. two fish will surely bump into each other unless… one of them quickly makes a turn.. the yellow fish to the right seems to be watching.. a little “voyeur” fish.. a slightly mischievous smile on its face… the big fish on top ?? yes.. what about him.. or her.. it just seems to glide above it all… having its own thoughts about the happenings further down.. and in sympathy to cedric the fish adapted to cedric’s deep violet purple colours….. phew.. what a story. is there more in it?? yes.. of course there is.. but that would be too much to post here 🙂

the original mixed-media painting is 20.5×29.5 centimeters big and can be purchased on ARTFINDER  .. prints are available in my various online stores, please check out my Buy my Art page … if you have questions.. please do not hesitate to contact me !

downsized

Tulip’s Queendom .. surrounded by her admirers and underlings, queen tulip stands in a field.. how did she get there? who knows.. perhaps an animal dropped a bulb in the middle of this flower field.. and now she grows there, different, admired, envied, in a sea of field flowers.

the original mixed-media painting is 14×19.5 centimeters big and can be purchased on ARTFINDER  .. prints are available in my various online stores, please check out my Buy my Art page … if you have questions.. please do not hesitate to contact me !

20201 … no titles just numbers…… ??

…… so.. no more titles? maybe.. some of my art.. doesn’t want a title i noticed. in that case i’ll just number it…… and let the viewer hear the story the painting is telling her or him. like this one…
very new techniques i tried in this one… watercolour crayons, gesso.. that’s about it. very much going with the flow…… and i love this comment i got from a viewer from one of my galleries “Patricia, I admire your ability to look at the world through the eyes of an inner child!” … YES .. that is my goal.. and i am so happy and thrilled that this person has seen it in this painting.. let my inner child do that talking 🙂

A New Life – mixed media collage – …. which started over 2 years ago ……

GONE is now A New Life DOWNSIZED

A New Life – Ein Neues Leben … – some of you know about this … and some not. i was going to spend a holiday with my children in my homecountry – i lived abroad at the time – and went for a routine control and suddenly was confronted with the diagnosis.. breastcancer.. triple-negative, stage 3 ……. acting fast was top priority .. and my world turned upside down – that was in mid 2016.
the treatment is over… successfully so, i went for 3 monthly checkups until january this year.. from now on it is 6 months.
during this time.. art was (and still is of course) my constant companion.. i thank God that i can do art, express myself in this way .. it is a great help.. because my life has changed completely and radically .. no details now tho.
i realize that my art has changed over the years. it is becoming more and more direct, straight to the point.. no fuss.. no roundabouts .. i enjoy painting on cardboard.. recycling in my own way.. i love cardboard.. it has gone through many hands.. has collected energy, it has “power” .. it was used to protect things.. to transport things .. and that makes it special.

in this case… it is a mixed media collage… the woman is painted/drawn on cardboard, using wax crayons, acrylics and acrylic ink .. this is glued on to a newspaper which i have been using for the past 1.5 years to protect my working table, well worn and used in itself.. this, in turn, is glued onto watercolour paper; the “frame” is in acrylics.. the writing in acrylic ink. the size is 14.8 x 21 centimeters.

i would like to thank my wonderful children, & some great friends for their wonderful, continued support.. and a special thank you goes to the Swiss Cancer League (Krebsliga Schweiz) for all their support, care and help !
much love and light to all fellow warrior sisters and brothers out there !!! ♥♥♥

expressive outsider art – WISE ONE ..

downsized

i honestly don’t know if the term is “correct” .. but i feel it is……… my style is very expressive.. and i am definitely an outsider…….. and intuitive arist.. and i use a lot of symbols in my art.. but that would be too much.. expressive-intuitive-symbolic-outsider … def too much. so i stick to.. what i said in the title.

anyway… the wise one… the ancient tree… symbol for life, for the self… for growth, family.. deeply rooted in mother earth… reaching for the heavens… spreading, growing .. branching off, whilst the roots grow and spread within the ground, stabilizing and nourishing the tree .. i will not go into detail.. i think we all have our own views, our own meanings, stories and histories connected to trees…

i love trees. the beautiful almost perfect ones.. but even more so the gnarly ones.. the oddly shaped ones.. with faces and knobs and scars.. they have their stories to tell .. how wonderful it is to be with such a tree… in silence, listening and feeling the story it has to tell us.

The Wise One … can be purchased … the original painting is available on ArtFinder , prints in my usual shops on RedBubble, FineArtAmerica/Pixels.com and Artflakes. for info please go to my Buy my Art page .. thank you 🙂

patterns-textures-layers … sketches !

downsized

my muse and i decided it was time for some fun.. mind you.. being creative is always fun.. but if you create something in the hopes that PERHAPS somebody MIGHT be interested in buying your art.. there is a bit of an edge to the fun. at least for me … this however.. sketches.. are just that. sketches.. no ambitions and hopes that PERHAPS somebody MIGHT want to buy them.. if yes, great.. if not.. great ! so there is totally no pressure on the creative process.. no mights, and hopes attached, no fears of making mistakes.. just completely letting go and accepting what’s coming my way.. fun with testing and exploring different techniques.. different media.. mixing them.. scribbling, writing, drawing, using pencils, crayons, left-over sticks from burnt-down incense sticks, etc etc.. adding paper, gauze, acrylic gel medium.. anyway.. you get the drift. and now i finished this first set.. and already new ideas for another set are bubbling in my mind.

this feels GOOD, this is REFRESHING, this is how it should be !!! LIFE is GOOD 🙂 have a fabulous day and thanks for dropping by and reading this !

Cedric Octopus Sitting in a Cloud of Deep Violet Ink .... looks like he is brooding about something. the fish don't seem to bother about his mood though and happily swim around, displaying their happy and varied colours. size: 20.5 x 29.5 cm mixed media on cardboard, with many layers and textures. cedric oktopus sitzt in seiner wolke aus tiefvioletter tinte. es scheint als sei er tief in gedanken versunken und am grübeln. die fische scheint dies aber nicht weiter zu stören und munter schwimmen sie herum, und zeigen ihre prächtigen farben. grösse 20.5 x 29.5 cm #mixedmedia #intuitiveart #artforsale #artfinder🔴 #fish #octopus #sea #sealife #naiveart
A new #wip i started last night. Started off with glueing various papers to the previously gessoed canvas. Working on a canvas is unusual for me, i prefer cardboard or heavy watercolor paper. Well not prefer, i am just more used to them. So this is a double adventure: the wip and the stretched canvas. #mixedmedia #stretchedcanvas #gesso #acrylics #collage #paper #intuitiveart #intuition #gowiththeflow #art #painting #strongcolors #subconscious #creativeprocess #swissartist #swissart
