… and now the circus has come to town :) .. and it SOLD YAY :)

CIRCUS

…. i like to doodle – as most of you know…. my doodling has “developed”… to the extent that i now have papers all over the flat and pens… or fine liners – as in this case – and when watching TV or netflix.. i just doodle on the side… scribble, scrabble, let the pen take over… not thinking what i am doing.. concentrating on the tv.. so these drawings come from realy realy deep inside of me… this one here…… i uploaded it yesterday and today already it is gone… sold to a collector in switzerland….. YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY to that πŸ™‚ my CIRCUS already has found a new home πŸ™‚
namaste my friends !!!

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 !

.. prepping backgrounds… trying out new stuff.. this and that

today i seem to be really busy… after cleaning my flat – got visitors tomorrow .. ! – and getting my first bit of a tan on my NEW BIG SUNNY BALCONY .. and then preparing lunch… i decided to try out some new things i got. i usually use white gesso as a primer… – on anything.. paper, canvas, wood – but the other day i ordered transparent and black gesso. ok .. black gesso i knew already but transparent one, was new to me. so been giving it a try on various papers and i am looking forward to see what happens. … below a little bit of “visual info” … πŸ™‚

so… here a few pics of the various gessos i used… the yellow one is … transparent gesso then yellow acrylic ink over it.. i am working on that one.. something is in there that my muse finds fascinating so.. going with the flow on that one. the others still have to wait a bit. top left… you see a bit of my workspace… actually THAT is my dining room and as i have guests for LUNCH tomorrow……. yup… i will have to put it all in a box and then… just re-arrange my “improvised studio” in the evening. my real studio is still full of moving boxes AND.. most importantly… i need two more tables.. 3 are not enough. plus.. i would need another bookshelf.. or something like that… but… one by one….. i cannot do it all in one day πŸ™‚ as for the tables… i will see what the salvation army has in its secondhand shop … they usually have fabulous things !!

so let me see what happens with that yellow mixed media painting.. you might be seeing it again ! have a lovely weekend !!

… so then i realized something …

i noticed that as of late.. my art started feeling.. “stiff” .. not as spontaneous as it used to be… i thought too much about what i was doing. it felt like …. mh .. imagine a hand.. instead of being open and relaxed it was curled into a tight fist.. it happened several times that when i had finished .. or almost finished a painting.. i just overpainted the whole thing again .. using either gesso, black or white paint because i did not like it… it felt wrong, not me, so i wanted a fresh start. however, i don’t like that !!! ok.. my one excuse might be that i am going through chemotherapy.. that makes me feel incredibly tired amongst other things.. on the other hand, art is what keeps me awake, so to say… so i decided i needed to learn to let go again. instead of a tight fist.. i should open that hand and shake it lose… so… i brought my sketch book to the living room. placed it on the table and as i was watching tv the other night, i took that sketch book and a ballpoint pen … and just started drawing.. not really paying attention to what i was doing.. i just let go.. let lose.. i just went with the flow.. and it felt right.. and in the end.. THIS had happened… as i was watching TV

starting on a new one …

downsized

starting on a new piece of art is always an adventure for me… cause my inner child and my muse take control.. i let them handle it… give them free reign. i suppose.. it will be another piece of happy art – that’s what my inner child and i decided to call my style …… πŸ™‚ when people tell me that my art puts a smile on their face and makes them happy… well i guess, i may call it that πŸ™‚ HAPPY ART ……… from a happy artist.

waves… curves… that is what i see … but of course this is no indication at all, of what the finished piece will look like, what it will be all about.. the adventure can take me in all directions.. i am a drifter…… following the input i get, putting it down on this canvas board, embarking yet on another journey, guided by my inner child, my muse.. the collective unconscious, trusting the process that has started, feeling safe….Β  ….. happy weekend to all !

solitary sunshower……. simple and to the point

downsized

Solitary Sunshower
mixed media on canvasboard
24 x 30 cm
my solitary sunshower is open to interpretation…… yours. mine.. i have πŸ™‚ but i rarely talk about my art… as i mentioned before.
to me the act of creation is actually more important than the finished artpiece. the creative process.. that is what gives me energy, good vibes, power, joy, peace ……. balance. .. makes me feel ZEN … when i started out.. i only managed to work on one artpiece at a time…. but now .. i usually work on several. once the creative process is flowing, it pushes me on.. to create more.. but then i am stopped because the paint has to dry… or i kind of lose the thread of one painting…… but there IS more so .. i start on a new canvas, paper or cardboard..
i am surrounded by various backgrounds.. work on one.. and suddenly an idea hits me and i realize.. it is for a different background.. so i continue there. sounds a bit chaotic doesn’t it.. well…… that is me. πŸ™‚ my inner child is, as usual, having a great time and that is important to me.. that is how it works.. and perhaps that is why my art is so different in the sense that there is not ONE straight line in my style.. i jump.. here and there.. experiment and try out.. bounce back and forth.. grabbing hold of new ideas and giving them a try…….. happy happy inner child !

20201 … no titles just numbers…… ??

20201 downsized
20201Β 
…… so.. no more titles? maybe.. some of my art.. doesn’t want a title i noticed. in that case i’ll just number it…… and let the viewer hear the story the painting is telling her or him. like this one…
very new techniques i tried in this one… watercolour crayons, gesso.. that’s about it. very much going with the flow…… and i love this comment i got from a viewer from one of my galleries “Patricia, I admire your ability to look at the world through the eyes of an inner child!” … YES .. that is my goal.. and i am so happy and thrilled that this person has seen it in this painting.. let my inner child do that talking πŸ™‚

… 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™‚
