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

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


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


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™‚


not complaining…. just a little info.. some fish and a princess

oh my.. it has been ages since i last was here. just a little update… they discoverd a tumor in my spine… along the 1st and 2nd lumbar vertebrae and that bugger is pressing on the nerve canal. now THAT is the reason why i haven’t been here in a while… this little bugger is the cause of my pain and makes it almost impossible for me to sit… at least for any length of time. i did discover that sitting on my bed is possible (it has a memory foam mattrass, it is a hospital bed)…so for the moment i am creating small art with acrylic markers πŸ™‚ that is fun. as to the little bugger in my vertebrae… i will go for radiation treatment, so i hope the nerve pain will get a little less πŸ™‚

so here……. my 3 latest acrylic paintings…… fishes everywhere … well almost. hope you have fun.. enjoy them.. and yes, they are for sale. for info contact me. the are all round about 6×9 centimeters… more or less.

so here we are…….. top left……. GOSSPPING FISH … left bottom STRIPED GOLDFISH and right…….. PRINCIPESSA

have a lovely weekend πŸ™‚


.. the couple … my parents?? nope.. def not… must be another couple…

ey friends……. it is a bummer when you cannot sit properly…. those darn metastases are in my hips… my thigh .. my pelvic bones… so.. it hurts to sit… to walk……. but i am getting a wheelchair soon so.. that will take care of going outdoor-matters… looking forward to that… when i can move around outside again.. you bet i will have my camera ready by then :)) i also just purchased a memory-foam-gel-cushion.. thanks to that i hope that sitting will be more comfortable again πŸ™‚

so.. what’s that all got to do with my painting ?`? nothing…….. i guess… or do you see a connection ?? ok.. so.. this is my latest painting….. The Couple – Das Paar…… who is who?? no idea… do you ??

The Couple – Das Paar

this painting is 29.5 x 21 centimeters – 11.4 x 8.2 inches
acrylics and acrylic markers
painted on cardboard


… out from the deep… into the storm….

i know.. the title sounds a bit ominous. but it actually is a good thing………… cause this morning i did a very quick, “warm-up” exercise in my studio. … just out of the blue, totally spontaneous without.. thinking… and then this painting happened….. and a warm up exercise, turned into something very deep and meaningful… i called it…….. DANCING IN THE EYE OF THE STORM …… the idea behind it………. often in our lives with are confronted with stormy situations… situations that are scarey, seemingly overwhelming….not solvable… but they are. we should not try and fight the storm.. but listen to it… hear its rhythm.. its message….. and dance along with it. happy dancing πŸ™‚


acrylics on cardboard
30 x 21 centimeters / 11.8 x 8.2 inches


OOOPS !!!!! subtitled… SH** happens …

well now….. this is my latest mixed media collage… mostly collage with some acrylic markers, lots of gesso and of course… acrylic medium…. sized…. 24 x 17 cm which is… 9.4 x 6.6 inches……

a little bit of a newish kind of style for me.. or at least let’s say a different approach. due to my bone cancer i cannot sit for too long… which is a bit of a challenge when you want to work – and no, i cannot stand for long either……. so…….. ?? a challenge, i have to find a new way to create, meaning …………… i have to work QUICK…… almost like a sketching… i start off with the gesso background….. then go on to the various layers of papers – where i included some of the new papers i got from my friends btw ……. – and then when the background is prepared… i took the markers and worked quickly. i had finished the slower process of background… slower because of course the various layers have to dry properly……. then i suddenly SAW the finished collage……. sat down and finished this new piece of art πŸ™‚ i hope you like it. the title is OOPS !!! cause you can see what is about to happen… and if you look to the left upper corner.. there is this little pink fishie… obviously grinning and just waiting for it to happen… ….. YES.. we will get rid of this big bully… sh** happens …. karma is about to hit home… good riddance… that is all i can see in this little fishie… you too ??
have a great day all…. namaste, blessing…….. take care β™₯ β™₯ β™₯
