let the colors speak … and i will stay quiet… sort of at least

i am doing two things at the moment……. art-wise that is. on the one hand i follow my usual chaotic style… but as of lately a new “style” has slowly crept in. a style that works purely with colours. no figures…. no trees, no people or houses…….. just colors…….. colors that say it all. i will show you some of those today… and let THEM do the talking … or … the whispering.. or whatever appeals to you… makes you hear them… sometimes… also the eyes can hear….. did you know that ? so…… listen carefully and i hope you will enjoy :).

as you can see… this is a novum for me. a novum in the sense that i can stick to one style alone… well two that is.. but this is the first time that something consistent is happening. i know therer is more… there will be more…… so come with me on my journey ……….. and let’s go for it, in colors….

all my art is available as usual in my online gallery at DailyPaintworks.. just follow the >>> LINK
all 3 of these paintings measure 32 x 24 / 12.5 x 9.4 inches and are acrylics on heavy watercolour paper. larger sizes will follow.

… 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 !!

… and the series continues ….

my outsider art is happily continuing… i am finding it more and more easy to let my inner child take over. mind you.. the controlling inner grown-up or critic always tries to get a foot in the door.. but as we go on it no longer feels threatening.. or even overpowering… it is possible to get that foot away and close the door to that critic.. that spoil-fun .. nagging, grumbling other side… not in a “brutal” way.. but in a gentle but firm manner. Telling it to stop right there, setting my boundaries and clearly.. drawing a line.. πŸ™‚
so here is the latest in my series… as all of my art, this is also for sale… and if you are interested please drop me a line.

HΓ€nsel und Gretel kommen aus dem Wald / HΓ€nsel and Gretel emerging from the Forest
acrylic ink on paper
14.5 x 21 centimeters

i hope you enjoy my latest art … thanks for viewing it πŸ™‚

… so then i realized something …

i noticed that as of late.. my art started feeling.. “stiff” .. not as spontaneous as it used to be… i thought too much about what i was doing. it felt like …. mh .. imagine a hand.. instead of being open and relaxed it was curled into a tight fist.. it happened several times that when i had finished .. or almost finished a painting.. i just overpainted the whole thing again .. using either gesso, black or white paint because i did not like it… it felt wrong, not me, so i wanted a fresh start. however, i don’t like that !!! ok.. my one excuse might be that i am going through chemotherapy.. that makes me feel incredibly tired amongst other things.. on the other hand, art is what keeps me awake, so to say… so i decided i needed to learn to let go again. instead of a tight fist.. i should open that hand and shake it lose… so… i brought my sketch book to the living room. placed it on the table and as i was watching tv the other night, i took that sketch book and a ballpoint pen … and just started drawing.. not really paying attention to what i was doing.. i just let go.. let lose.. i just went with the flow.. and it felt right.. and in the end.. THIS had happened… as i was watching TV
