… been a long long time …

good evening…… dear friends, followers, readers πŸ™‚

it’s been quite a while since my last posting…… as you might guess… lots of things happened .. life sometimes just takes over.. priorities change and we need to concentrate on different matters.. art of course is still tops for me.. but for a while now other things have taken over. my eldest son, with whom i lived for the past two years, has moved abroad and i decided to move to a different place.. closer to my eldest daughter and her family. well easier said than done.. yes? well….. sort of. i believe that if we are in touch with our self.. tuned-in so to say and things are RIGHT .. and meant to be.. they happen. just like that.. they happen. and true enough… i found a lovely apartment.. big, with big windows and lots of light, two balconies, enough room for a wonderful studio.. great neighbours, great neighbourhood, bordering on a forest.. close to a big river .. yes i really really like it. πŸ™‚ all went very fast and sudden .. i saw the flat.. fell in love with it.. and basically could move in straight away. wow… took my breath away.. sort of.

now i am here.. and slowly getting the feel for it… i have much too little furniture.. there are lots of walls though and i can hang some of my art there … yay πŸ™‚ it feels good to be here and i am slowly getting back to art.. not that i have done much though.. we have a heatwave here and i watch a lot of netflix at the moment πŸ˜€ just sit .. and enjoy my crime stories.. preferably scandianvian ones.. but of course i also like the english and us series πŸ™‚

so back to here… i will definitely make a homepage now.. on WP .. and i would greatly appreciate if any of you having a hp here could give me some feedback and input. are you happy with it.. is it easy to maintain etc ?spiral notebooks

i have decided to mainly stick to RedBubble for prints and products.. and to Artfinder for selling my original art.. RedBubble is – in my view – one of the best places to be as an artist. they have great products, the quality is first rate, the shipping cost are absolutely ok, the support is great. same goes for Artfinder for selling original art. these three spiral notebooks i bought for myself on RB btw .. the one on the right looks a bit pale but that’s because the window is right next to it.. my fault. but i love them… all three of them πŸ™‚

sorry for this long posting….. i hope i did not bore you.. just wanted to bring you up to date πŸ™‚ have a wonderful evening πŸ™‚

love, light and many smiles…… pat πŸ™‚

this and that – an update

wordspace

my creative space, in all its “cluttered” glory.Β Β but i feel at home there and comfy… so.. i leave it as it is.. mostly. here… two works in progress….. a mixed media painting and a new page in my art journal.. whilst one dries.. i work on the other.

big plans.. definitely attempting to make a homepage now.. seriously. have been thinking about it for a long time and so far it made more sense to upload my art into galleries .. but now some things have changed.. for one paypal makes it easier to sell directly from a homepage or a social media page.. for the other i feel more “secure” about writing about my work.. keeping up a blog.. so i have decided to make a page on wordpress. i like wordpress, have been having my blog there for years, so i am a bit familiar with it. building a homepage however, is quite a different cup of tea. so if any of you have suggestions, input.. i am all ears. i have found a theme which i like and which i think suits my ideas, it is from the portfolio section..

so.. this is just a quick update πŸ™‚
wishing you all a very happy weekend … and happy st. patrick’s day to all my irish friendsΒ 

love, light and many smiles

… on a more personal note

dear followers, dear friends πŸ™‚

i realize that it’s been quite a while that i have posted anything here on my blog. and what i posted, was kind of sporadic. i would like to apologize for this. for very specific reasons, i was a lot less creative over the last months.

i don’t like to talk about private matters on the net, however in this instance i will make an exception… a small one. but i feel, you all have the right to know what’s been going on, what IS going on… and how things are.

i came to switzerland in june of this year to visit my children, and to have a medical checkup. it was then that i was diagnosed with breast cancer. in july i started on a very heavy course of chemo, 4 hourly, weekly cycles. after 6 weeks i had to have a break cause due to my immune system being practically non-existant, i was close to a blood poisoning in my left arm. i had to take antibiotics and chemo was stopped for two weeks. then, it continued and two weeks ago i had the last cycle. i was lucky.. all in all. the side effects were bearable, the worst being the extreme tiredness and exhaustion – i still have that ! – the complete loss of taste – yuck to all foods and drinks – the sensory disturbances in my hands and footsoles.

in the beginning i was still capable to create art, but as the chemo sessions continued, i had less and less energy to be creative. so i really changed into a complete couch potato. i read a lot – make this past and present tense! – mostly thrillers.. but many books on art too, watch/ed TV and slept/sleep.

OK.. so far so good. i am better now… slowly getting some energy back and slowly being more creative again. today.. i have to go to hospital for more bloodtests, a CT and meeting with my oncologist. in two weeks, on October 11th, i will have surgery.

anyway. i am good. i am.. lucky to be here in switzerland. i have fabulous doctors… am being treated in a top rate oncology center… and i wasn’t even aware there being one here, in the city where my eldest son lives. i live with my son.. he is wonderful.. looking after me, cooking for me, going shopping….. my other children live close by and visit me often. my wonderful husband is at home, taking care of the house and our dogs… if he weren’t so supportive and kind, i could never manage this all !

i count myself lucky. i am here, in a fantastic place, surrounded by the alps. there is so much good and healing energy here.. can you believe it? yes i count myself lucky.. yes, i have cancer, and yes, i have accepted it. my hair is gone.. i am bald.. but … i wont wear a wig nor a scarf nor whatever… i am boldly bald.. nothing to hide ! it is another lesson i am learning, another stepping stone in my life.

i wish you all a great new week… and sending you all lots of love and light.

a little info

dear friends and followers

i rarely post words here.. i try to just show my art.. without any explanations or comments. but now i feel it is time to explain something to you. those who have been following me for a while know.. that i post all sorts of styles.. photos, fine art, mixed media, collages, digital art.. all wildly mixed.. i post as i create …

now lately you probably noticed that it is all digital art. have i given up on the others ?? nooooooo .. never. in fact i am longing to hold a paintbrush, pencils, waxcrayon or whatever in my hand and create something with those. BUT .. big bummer…. end of december i hurt by wrist.. my tendons are badly inflamed.. and my right hand was useless. only a source of pain and .. nothing nice really. so.. lucky me, i can do digital art.. one outlet.. and so i stuck to that.. had to. now after 8 long weeks.. my wrist is slowly getting better… i never thought it could take so long but.. anyway.. just wanted to solve this – perhaps – mystery for you πŸ™‚

and now.. back to art and my next posting is just about ready to be uploaded.

namaste!
