wow.. long break… but.. i am … Crazy About You Baby !!!

yes.. i was gone for quite a while… sorry about that ………. but i had a bit of a roughish time.. slowly getting better though… back to painting…… back to fun……….. joy……… experimenting and… just being creative.

in the meantime i also got quite a few new papers for my collages. i asked for paper contributions from my Facebook friends… and quite a number of them were so kind to send me new papers……… πŸ™‚

before my “roughish time” i had started three paintings.. one i finished today… when i was “interrupted” .. i only had the black background…… and today………. wow……… creativity hit me and i finished it… here we go

… 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 !

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 !!

…. and so the times are a changing ….

... or in other words... can you smell it ?? do you notice it ?? spring is in the air.. most definitely... yes it is still cold - around zero degrees centigrade - it's been freezing last week but now the temps are going up slightly... but.. the sky is blue and the sun is shining and there is just that SPRING feeling ... and that inspired me to a new series.. a new collection of digital art. yes i know.. i have been complaining about my computer being not equipped for really creating digital art... but i have the time to wait for it to "work" and do the necessary renderings ... taking it's own sweet time.. so i am going wild on flowers an blossoms.. and her are my first creations of that series πŸ™‚ here is a list of where all these floral designs can be purchased.. FineArt America, RedBubble, Society6, Artflakes, ArtPal .. the links to these sites can be found here >>>> Buy My Art  
and so.. here are my first 5 creations in that series. hope you enjoy πŸ™‚ there will be more.. simply because i have to pack.. my studio and my flat.. cause i am moving to a new, lovely flat .. so i can still use my notebook but my artsy stuff and the rest of my flat is slowly going into boxes for the time being πŸ™‚ take care.. stay safe and healthy !!

… and here is a very sketchy Giselle… one that doesn’t laugh …

Giselle the cow that doesn’t laugh is the full title (see below)… there’s a advert going around here in Europe – only ?? i wouldn’t know – about a laughing cow.. that cow advertises cheese.. and very well so cause it works.. the advert.. at least it did on me.. i love that cheese .. even today. i don’t know if THAT cow has a name… but mine does. Giselle.. as i was sketching her she looked at me and informed me that this was her name.. ok. nobody’s gonna argue with a cow. so here we go……….

… while my painting gently dries …

….. i went digital. i could not resist… even though my computer is hopeless… too slow.. not enough RAM … the graphic card is not up to it… to get my digital art done it takes me hours… but.. ok. i could not resist and created two designs πŸ™‚

to the left is ARCTIC SUN … and to the right … A NEW BEGINNING.

both designs are available in my various online stores/galleries …
