…. hurray … i finished them … and other goodies

no. i wont write much today. let the pics do the talking. first … my knitting… am i boring you? i hope not. my knitting is important to me… as i said… it gives me inner balance, harmony, i feel grounded and connected with God … and no that is not funny. it is a reality and true… i knit to be more in contact, aligned, open to God … spiritual knitting ?? ach yes… works for me.. might not for you … i dunno.

so knitting is one part – an important one cause.. i have people ORDERING SOCKS from me. you can do that too ya knows ? contact me through my contact page here and i will let you know how to go about it πŸ™‚ but this is about knitting. now we talk art.. painting… mixmedia. it is not quite finished… some things are missing so i will not yet post it here. perhaps later. it does have two main figures in it… and for once.. no fish. the fish will still turn up, i am sure. ok. those figures are a chimera and a lion… wow. no idea what that is all about but it intrigues me… so i will roll my wheelchair to my working place, where i am crowded and barely have enough room.. but that is where i paint. oh goodness i am looking forward to moving the flat around. different story πŸ™‚

so here are some of my knitting pics… enjoy. and remember… yeah.. right πŸ™‚

….. i never thought … the zen of knitting

………..that i would actually knit… and SELL what i was knitting … this sure comes as a nice, wonderful, lovely surprise… because i LOVE TO KNIT. knitting is relaxing, meditative, grounding, it centers me … connects me to God, calms me, in other words, it makes me feel great.

why did i start ? i cannot even remember why.. just because … ah.. i remember.. my younger daughter was on the phone to me and we talked about .. no idea what… suddenly she said to me… mother .. you know how to knit. how about a pair of legwarmers … i was taken aback.. haven’t knitted anything in at least 30 years… and before i could say.. well no not really.. she said.. i would be so happy, thanks ma … well here i was stuck. not really sure i could do that… then…i bought wool. that is a must. no synthetics here.. BIG NO !!! … so i ordered wool… too much of it – of course but better too much than too little. so i ordered it, plus knitting needles.. plus one or the other accessory i need. so 2 days later my wool arrived… i felt so insecure… can i really do that? well i could … not the first round because my daughter didn’t want to have a checkered texture on one side and not on the other… so back to knitting and adding another checkered texture so that it looks just about the same. … my socks never do… look the same. i prefer wild intuitive socks…well to make a longish story short… my daughter loves her legwarmers and i hope my customers and friends will all like the bobbisox i will knit for them .. mimusox are on their way to rule the world … ha haaaaaa ! lol πŸ™‚

btw i am listening to Grand Funk the LP WE’RE AN AMERICAN BAND .. if you wanna join me in listening just click on the link. thanks πŸ™‚
yes and of course i also paint… working on something. so my days are filled….. with painting and knitting.. both things i love doing. ain’t i the lucky one… staying at home and doing what i want… that really is luxury…… so let me enjoy it. oh and here is the link to my portfolio page .. only my original mixed media paintings are sold there. no prints … >>>>>>> https://www.artbymimulux.com/ <<<<<<< that’s da place to visiter …… yup.

wishing you all a wonderful evening, then a good night.. and remember.. you need socks, contact me from my contact page…it is wonderful to own a pair of mimusox … πŸ™‚

oh wow………

it is AAAAAAAAAAGES……. since i have been here last. i just couldn’t write. i was in hospital twice… once i even landed on ICU and my family was called by the docs… were told to wish me goodbye & farewell … well as you can see, i am still here.. thank you God for that πŸ™‚ i am still with my lovely husband, family, friends… carers, … careres…. yes….. because they care …. for me…… and about me. and that is wonderful… my cancer is the same as before… i think at the moment the metastases have been stopped from growing more. they haven’t spread either … but of course i am in a wheelchair. i can not walk longer distancances… well short ones neither. thus the wheelchair. i do have a ROLLI tho… short stretches like in my apartment are ok with that. and the beauty is.. i can turn it around and sit down in it. that is good because my legs just give out at times….. how to walk properly if there is no feeling in your legs, your feet, your thighs ? awkward i can tell you. but i am good. no more than that. i am fine πŸ™‚ God is with me.. i love Him i can tell ya. HE does so much for me too….. HE is the real carer … as i said, i LOVE him and i care for him too and i am full of gratitude for the lovely things i get daily. i am forever grateful for this gift i got from Him. … i am a positive person… i am an optimist… and i love life. this is what lets me live with cancer, cancer that – according to meds – is not cureable. … cancer in the last stage.. i have palliative care…… palliative meaning —> perhaps prolonging life, making living circumstances more comfy…
my death has been taken care of. i have made plans, which i still need to write down, but it is all here in my head… having looked at death and having made those plans… i can put all of this death-stuff aside and continue enjoying life πŸ™‚
of course, when i was hospitalised i did not create art….. just one piece of a grumpy fish, very art brut, outsider art in style, this little fish in his grumpyness went off to the USA. but my creativity is back. i have made a few new paintings, and just today i started on a new piece of art… the background is happening. at the same time, ok about 2 weeks ago, i re-discovered an old love. knitting. at the moment it is either knitting or painting… my hands are always busy in a way. knitting has become my way to get grounded again… it is so zen, meditative, relaxing, fun… in short… i LOVE knitting πŸ™‚ i will show you……. i am making a pair of sox for my bestie friend in the USA … and i will also show you my new background. and apart from that you have plenty to read …… so i will come to an end now. look at the pics… read what i wrote… or don’t … and i wish you all a lovely weekend.

with much Love and Light ………. pat aka mimulux πŸ™‚


p.s. ok.. you are right… i changed my mind.. i only uploaded art i created since leaving hospital. some of them are for sale… please check out my homepage on DailyPaintworks … tada.. see ya πŸ™‚

… goodness … it’s been aaaages !!!

…. hi everybody… yes ages…… so much happened in the meantime… healthwise and artwise too of course πŸ™‚ i could add a few paintings and drawings here.. gosh…… and i will… slowly.. one by one. starting with the newest… the one that is not even finished yet ! but why not… i will show you my art in reversed order…. more or less. i am not a very organized person… more the spontaneous, temperamental, emotional type. ask my husband… he will confirm this for sure πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ poor man… i love him dearly πŸ™‚

yes well, so let me start with my WIP… the one i have started today.. it is about… 1/3rd finished… it has a working title, but i wont tell it… cause then you will start guessing what the finished artwork will look like and i do not want that. it is heavily mixed-media of course… πŸ™‚

healthwise… well my last MRI was not so good. it shows that the tumor in my spine has grown. that is why i need a wheelchair now when i have to master longer walks, i.e. as of about 10 steps i need it. at home i use a stick or my rolly .. either one. that tumor is a real bastard… not only is it of the “triple-negative” type.. oh no.. now it winds itself around my nerves.. the ones in my spine… approx. in the area of the coxxygial bone/lumbar vertebrae … now my doc is sending me for another spinal, thorax etc CT and a head MRI – yeah.. also got one tumor in my head. don’t think that it has grown though…. the side effects in my face haven’t worsened… so i do not really worry.. but we shall see.

i feel good mind you. .. at least in my head.. meaning… my psyche is just doing fine… only my body is getting unreliable. oh well, such is life. i am religious.. yes i believe in God and i know He is with me.. so why worry. i cannot change anything, anyway. worrying is just a waste of time. apart from creating art, i have now joined a hotline… a hotline that is open for senior citizens who feel lonely, who just want to chat, talk about their everyday life, complain about the “loud” neighbour, ask questions about various things… it is a very nice and rewarding “job” – a voluntary job of course. we are a team of about 40 people, we take our turns, our shifts are 3 hours, and we work about 2-3 shifts per week. we have clients that call daily… and others that just call once or twice. as i said… i enjoy doing it.

ok enought talk. here it is………. my latest WIP… enjoy and guess πŸ™‚ have fun πŸ™‚

Peace, Love and Light to all !!!

OK… one more… the last one i finished … the title is
A TALE OF LIFE

… variations of a theme … abstract … thoughts

yesterday i created an abstract, which i called Sweet Dreams… today i used the same colors (well more or less, plus/minus one or the other)… and created a totally different abstract. did i ever mention that i love to play with colors? well i do.. my inner child does.. my muse approves……. so… we are all happy πŸ™‚ i called this new one.. “Variations of a Theme” by which i mean the colors. they are the theme here… thus the title. so without further ado… let me show you my latest two artworks

see what i mean ? same colors, totally different art ……….. so much fun to create πŸ™‚ my next plan is to go big… big with this style… needs some testing and trying out……… but i will get there. in the meantime i hope you enjoy my new style πŸ™‚ my energy art as i call it.

much love and light to all ……… pat

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.

… it is spontaneous …. and it is fun… and the title says it all … at least i think so

DANCING FULL OF JOY

I think the title really says it all : “DANCING FULL OF JOY” .. YES… it is happy, full of fun, movement, joy … what more can i say. that i created it very quickly, without thinking, just following my muse? ok.. then that is what i will say. it was strange working … because i was 3/4ers asleep. i was diagnosed with shingles on friday and girls and boys.. i thought i knew everything about being tired….. but NOW i am flat out. shattered, exhausted. just imagine what my body all needs to deal with… cancer, chemotherapy, shingles, a virus medicine, a blood thinner, chronic fatigue….. and now THIS on top of it all. but still, i want to create art and i am quite happy that i actually managed to create another piece, completely different, a digital abstract, created in PaintShopPro… here a small photo of it.. hope you like that too

PATTERN 004

this one can only be found in my Society6 store … just follow the link if you are interested. there is a ton of products available with it.. really fun and interesting πŸ™‚ >>>> artbymimulux on society6 … pay my shop a visit there… no need to buy anything… but perhaps you will find something you like.. and that would make me happy of course πŸ™‚ so enjoy πŸ™‚

love and light to all…….. and thanks for the visits πŸ™‚ … pat

oh my.. it is high time… highest of times !!!…

….. that i write something on my blog again. so sorry for neglecting you all… but this radio therapy really made me so tired… still does. however, now i am on a roll. almost a painting per day.. and mostly either abstract… or neo expressionism…….. i will show you the last three works i created over the weekend. all my artwork is for sale… you can view it on my saatchi page πŸ™‚

healthwise… yes as i mentioned… i am still in my radiation therapy but on thursday will be the last session. i am glad about it but i am happy that the treatment already has brought some improvements. the pain levels have gone down and it is a bit easier for me to walk. i still have nerve pain but not as much as before … but i also have a good pain management now. a good palliative doc… plus my carers see to me πŸ™‚

i just decided i want a new tattoo. wrote to my oncologist when i can make it.. i.e. like how long after radiotherpay can i be inked… not a big one… just a celtic symbol.. which is also relevant in christianity as it represents the father, son and holy spirit. three ovals and a ring in the middle… combining all three together. ach hard to explain.. once i have it.. i will show it. what i will show you now are my latest paintings. i hope you will enjoy πŸ™‚ bonne soirΓ©e Γ  tous…….. have a lovely evening…… see you soon again πŸ™‚



ok.. still a bit confusing here on WP … but on the left “ON THE RUN”, top right “DISTANT MOUNTAINS” and bottom right “MENDING THE BROKEN HEART”

that’s all. take care πŸ™‚
