… 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
A TALE OF LIFE

… 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™‚

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 !!

………. Winston ………….

Hyppolite liebt Blumen von handy f. uploads SMALL

see…. i told ya. doggie art was waiting to happen….. and here we are……….. with WINSTON ………. i love him….. he reminds me a bit of myself.. loving flowers… a bit of a dreamer.. a bit.. uhm… chubby πŸ˜€ … happy, optimistic… loving life.
oh yes i know.. there are some very serious people out there.. wrinkling their noses at my almost childish art… thinking that this is not art.. these are just.. scribblings.. naive, childish.. no depth in them.. ?? well boo to you too…….. ! do you realize how much courage it took to just let my inner child take over and create these paintings?? to just.. completely let go of all expectations and high flying ideas … and just GO WITH THAT FLOW …… ?? fully aware that there is probably a high amount of.. shaking heads and sniggers and raised eyebrows and oh so wise trashing and tearing apart of my art by all those highly learned critics .. well as i said before….. BOO TO YOU TOO!

my inner child.. had to act adult for a very long time.. or was just silenced cause i was not able to listen to it.. to give it time and space.. to encourage and embrace it.Β  but now…. I DO !! and THIS is my kind of art.. YES !!! love it or not…….. up to you ….

ok.. had my say πŸ™‚ as to Winston… it is a mixed media painting on cardboard..Β  19 centimeters wide.. and 9/13.5 cm high.. it is recycled cardboard.. from a catfood box haha πŸ™‚ ……. the painting is for sale.. for info contact me please πŸ™‚

have a wonderful day and weekend.. take care……. and stay healthy please !
