…. nutty me… the patterns of a life ……. :)

Pattern of a Life

what more can i say.. this is me. with energy circles….. jumping up and down… playing snakes and ladders, letting my inner child take over… be creative, paint….. draw…… LIVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAAAAAAAAAAA !!! mais oui, c’est moi… it is me.. there are tears, there is sunshine… there are bubbly moments, stern moments…. ladders to climb up.. ladders to climb down.. there are caves and shady places.. there is sunlight and brightness… this is the way to live. let your inner child live, don’t forget that child inside of you…. give it space to grow, to be creative, have fun… and life will be so much easier to live :))

my two weeks of radio therapy are over…. i feel a bit less tired… though those strong pain meds still make me a bit drowsy.. but slowly i am getting used to them and soon i will be able to drive again. met my new physiotherapist today and i just know we will get along just fine..

meanwhile…. my inner child is having a ball……. because we are about to start on a new painting…. yayyyyyyyy to that 🙂

all my art is for sale btw…… for info…… just contact me through me contact page… thanks 🙂 be good, stay healthy….. and take care. much love and light to all !!!

Mandalas … i love them

downsized

GO WITH THE FLOW 2

mixed media Mandala on gesso board, 30 x 30 cm – original for sale ..
also available as prints and on many different products on pixels.com

i love creating mandalas… and if you should decide to follow the link to pixels com  you will see 3 different types in one gallery…. two are created as mixed media art… one is created digitally. 2 are more traditional in the sense… more geometric… whereas this one here is free flowing.. whirling around.. energy emanating.. spreading positive vibes and good energy. the circles are only hinted at… the forms and shapes are mostly abstract.. but not all of them. creating mandalas is very meditative.. healing and soothing..

have a wonderful start into a fabulous week tomorrow 🙂 love and light to you 🙂

i caught a ray of sunshine in my bedroom !

downsized unedited

… strange title you might think… but it is the truth… this is a snapshot of a sunray shining through the shutters of my bedroom.. now, about 30 minutes later, the sky is covered with dark clouds and it looks as if we will be having a thunderstorm. fine by me 🙂

but this ray of sunshine was very special to me this morning … it was symbolic, a strong, positive sign …… i got wonderful news from a close friend, that finally a chemo is working for him 🙂 🙂 🙂 … i also got up this morning and almost had no pain in my leg :)))))))))))) (yes that is why i did not paint lately, sitting on a chair was impossible .. ) , i felt energized, empowered, strengthened, … this sunray brought hope, joy, peace, harmony… THANK YOU for giving me this sign 🙂 🙂 🙂

lisa’s garden – lisa’s garten

DOWNSIZED

Lisa’s Garden – Lisa’s Garten

mixed media on stretched canvas.. 30 x 30 cm

 

.. this painting i created in memory of a dear friend of mine.. who sadly left this realm in april of this year. she and i have been friends for several years.. lisa was also an outsider artist.. and we never met personally.. we only exchanged emails.. messages on fb .. well the usual. friendships can grow.. even if you never meet in person. i am lucky to have a few such friends all over the world. yay to the internet for that.

the downside is.. that usually – apart from email address and fb account – there is no more info that we have. even if you exchange photos, art, ideas, thoughts… we rarely have a phone number.. or an address. in lisa’s case i did have an address because, as i mentioned, we swapped our art. so anyway.. one day.. you have a friend.. and next day.. this friend vanishes. ok.. lisa has been very sick.. and our contact became a bit less frequent over the past few months. she was in hospital on and off.. had treatments and procedures.. but we would stay in touch. not worrying if several weeks would pass without a word. now though.. i did have a bit of a funny feeling… and eventually i started looking for a phonenumber….. thanks google for that. imagine my shock when what i found was….. her obituary… ! 😦 … only 3 weeks after our last correspondance… she moved on.. to another realm……… yes, i was shocked.. yes i was sad. i did not feel like painting or creating any type of art for the past few days…… you migh have noticed. and then suddenly my muse took me to my studio… and this painting happened.. in memory of my dear friend lisa.. who was so fond of flowers.. nature… i feel blessed to have known such a wonderful person ♥

At the Waterlilypond

mixed media on canvas board – 24 x 32 cm

been working on this for a couple of days.. useed wax crayons.. on top of the – mostly – acrylic background .. also added some ink for washes but also to paint.. i felt very quiet and relaxed whilst working on this. it has a soothing effect i think.. meditative… zen..

… 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 ♥

A New Life – mixed media collage – …. which started over 2 years ago ……

GONE is now A New Life DOWNSIZED

A New Life – Ein Neues Leben … – some of you know about this … and some not. i was going to spend a holiday with my children in my homecountry – i lived abroad at the time – and went for a routine control and suddenly was confronted with the diagnosis.. breastcancer.. triple-negative, stage 3 ……. acting fast was top priority .. and my world turned upside down – that was in mid 2016.
the treatment is over… successfully so, i went for 3 monthly checkups until january this year.. from now on it is 6 months.
during this time.. art was (and still is of course) my constant companion.. i thank God that i can do art, express myself in this way .. it is a great help.. because my life has changed completely and radically .. no details now tho.
i realize that my art has changed over the years. it is becoming more and more direct, straight to the point.. no fuss.. no roundabouts .. i enjoy painting on cardboard.. recycling in my own way.. i love cardboard.. it has gone through many hands.. has collected energy, it has “power” .. it was used to protect things.. to transport things .. and that makes it special.

in this case… it is a mixed media collage… the woman is painted/drawn on cardboard, using wax crayons, acrylics and acrylic ink .. this is glued on to a newspaper which i have been using for the past 1.5 years to protect my working table, well worn and used in itself.. this, in turn, is glued onto watercolour paper; the “frame” is in acrylics.. the writing in acrylic ink. the size is 14.8 x 21 centimeters.

i would like to thank my wonderful children, & some great friends for their wonderful, continued support.. and a special thank you goes to the Swiss Cancer League (Krebsliga Schweiz) for all their support, care and help !
much love and light to all fellow warrior sisters and brothers out there !!! ♥♥♥
