a buxom country woman…. the title my friend gave this painting…… yeah… so it seems at first sight… but then is it really ? could she be something else…?? let’s hear a little more about Marguerite

answer to my friend’s email 🙂 :


Hello my Friend 🙂

I’m glad you like her 😊 a buxom country woman … yes that’s what she seems to be..mmmmmh… but did you notice the scale pattern on her dress? Is it even a dress,  is it a fabric pattern … or could they be proper fish scales … making her a mermaid in disguise?? An elderly,  buxom one, but also mermaids grow older … 😉

and that is how this painting got it’s title……. MARGUERITE A BUXOM MERMAID. because yes… also mermaids grow older and expand a bit, well some do, others don’t. it is the same everywhere 🙂 so here she is…. Marguerite. i think she enjoys visiting our world, enjoys being in contact with humans… her family is big, but her children have moved out of their home, got married and had children of their own… same story everywhere. but Marguerite had one big wish … and that was getting in touch with us humans. her disguise is…. very down to earth 🙂 not what you expect a mermaid to look like. but then, how should mermaids look ? does it always have to be ‘glimmerglimmerglitzy? no certainly not. Marguerite likes her disguise, she sells fish on the market… and she is happy to be know as Marguerite, the fishmonger, and that is that….

Marguerite, a Buxom Mermaid in Disguise

so… Marguerite a Buxom Mermaid in Disguise would be the full title, but that’s a bit too long for some sites…. so let’s just stick to the original version.

Merci mes chers amis et amies … take care, have a lovely afternoon, enjoy it………. have fun 🙂

love and light to all ……….. Pat ❤ ❤ ❤ 🙂

p.s. yes of course she is for sale… if you are interested, just contact me through my DailyPaintworks.com homepage.

….. oh.. shocking ……………

ABSTRACT 89

shocking isn’t it………… suddenly this totally abstract, digital art.. i LOVE creating digital art… problem is, that my computer is just not really ideal for it. doesn’t matter.. that wont stop me. i need to create digital art.. i need to do photography… i need it to be balanced… one enhances the other.. one inspires the other.. if i would paint only, i would feel unbalanced..

so.. if you like ABSTRACT 89 it can be purchased on FineartAmerica, on ArtPal and on Society6…. please follow this link and you will find a list of all my online stores … >>>>> FOLLOW THIS LINK PLEASE

Under the Sun … and some inspiration

this morning i looked through some of my last year’s art.. and found Under the Sun .. and i remembered my inktense pencils.. true… this artpiece is also mixed media.. but based on inktense pencils.. the background was mostly created using them.. and of course the birds, sun, clouds…

i have a large box of them.. and i love them.. their colours are so vibrant .. and so nice to work with.. so why haven’t i been using them?? honestly i don’t know.. i was a bit out of it.. for whatever reason… not too motivated.. kind of a funny mood..

well anyway… seeing Under the Sun gave me the push….. and i started on a new inktense pencils mixed media piece.. first i just scribbled various colours on my watercolour paper.. and then with water.. i created a first layer for a background.. as usual.. i have of course NO IDEA whatsoever where this is going.. that’s the fun of it……. let my inner child take over again 🙂 have a fabulous week all !

Tête à Tête
mixed media on watercolour paper
17 x 24 cm
yes……….. we – my muse et moi – went very much outsider art / art brut yesterday….. she took me to my office … and i picked out a background which i had started creating weeks ago.. i LOVE creating backgrounds……… and just having them around me.. adding layers and textures… putting them aside….. and suddenly……… the creative spark hits me and i know… now the background is finished and we can take it from there….. and spontaneously the painting happens..
here i used mostly waxcrayons – neocolor – some inktense pencil and acrylics.. plus of course various papers, collage elements for the background, giving texture…
yes… it is for sale…….. for more info contact me please … have a great day !

… a small drawing on cardboard .. and a story to go with it ……. in english and german …

canine story fertig downsized

as every morning, FIX the small terrier-mix – to the right in the drawing – joggs happily to the dog meeting place, as there is always stuff to explore, new smells and odours, tracks that need to be checked out .. and of course friends to meet.. friends with whom stories can be exchanged.. such as….. the other day…. the story about that cheeky little cat who dared to enter the dog meeting place.. ! what an upheaval that created.. the cat probably didn’t even realize what would happen… pure chaos erupted and the cat only managed to escape by taking a courageous leap over the high wall right next to the fountain. yes.. such were the stories that were exchanged and then……….
UPS …….. FIX stopped in his tracks… who is THIS ??? there she sits… right in front of him.. gives him a shy look .. and he just stands there.. thunderstruck, his little heart beating madly, not capable of moving even a fraction of an inch….. the girl doggie of his dreams    …….
up on the hill… the shaggy sheepdog has watched this magic encounter ….

mixed media with collage elements on cardboard

wie jeden morgen trabt FIX, der terrier-mix – rechts im bild – voller tatendrang zum hundeplatz. da gibt es für ihn immer viel zu entdecken.. neue gerüche, die man sorgfältig erkunden muss.. kumpels die man wieder trifft.. und mit denen man geschichten austauschen kann.. so wie z.b. neulich, als sich einfach eine freche katze auf den hundeplatz gewagt hatte.. das war vielleicht eine aufregung ! die katze hatte wohl gar nicht realisiert, auf was sie sich da einliess. es herrschte das pure chaos und die katze konnte sich nur mit einem gewagten sprung über die hohe mauer neben dem grossen brunnen aus der gefahrenzone retten.. ja also.. solche geschichten tauschte man aus… und dann………
……………… ups… FIX bleibt stehen….. wer ist denn DAS ?? da sitzt sie… vor ihm….. blickt scheu zu ihm rüber……. und er steht da, erstarrt, wie vom blitz getroffen……. sein herz rast wie wild.. aber er kann sich nicht bewegen.. seine traumfrau…….. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ………….
oben auf dem hügel sitzt der zottlige hütehund.. und beobachtet das ganze….. diesen magischen moment …….

… one corner in my studio …

.. this is just one corner in my studio… but the one i spend most time in… it’s night next to the window where i can see a maple tree, it’s branches actually touching the window.. and of course the neighbouring house…. anyway… i work at this table.. have lots of my stuff on it but of course not all of it.
image 1 shows you one of my shelves where a small part of my stash can be found.. papers i collected and keep in boxes.. paints, pastels, waxcrayons, stencils .. and more.
image 2 shows you a wip i started the day before yesterday… on cardboard.. and with one coating of black gesso to start with….. been adding some papers and wax crayon.. acrylics.. and will wait and see where it takes me 🙂
images 3, 4 and 5 .. yes you guessed correctly….. some of my cardboard stash 🙂 images 3 and 4 are the same box.. i will cut it up and can make several paintings from one box.. the small tiny bits i can use as collage elements in other paintings. ..

well………. that’s it for today 🙂 wishing you all a great day… a good week… and please be careful and stay healthy 🙂

a new WIP and a photo

yesterday i decided to go for a walk.. a walk in the park… bally park to be exact.. a beautiful place.. close to where i live. it will be my last walk there for a while though.. since i am an “at risk person” … i will no longer venture outside but rather stay indoors.. and just go with the flow.

anyway… the walk happened… the WIP happened.. the other way round though.. FIRST the WIP.. late at night, the day before yesterday… then the walk. i don’t feel “stuck” indoors.. it is as it is, or as i said above… i just go with the flow. my muse is very busy i am glad to say… lots of ideas tumbling around in my head.. and i actually have ANOTHER WIP… but that is still very very early stages so no photos yet. but that will be a first for me.. it is BIG… 60×80 cm.. i never made anything that big before…… it is a bit.. awe-some.. but having a very pushy muse i know.. i will get there eventually.
take care everybody… and i wish you good health ! much love and light to all ♥
