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 comΒ  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 πŸ™‚ love and light to you πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ … 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 πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

… Somewhere in the Forest …. is where my muse took me

finished downsized

Somewhere in the Forest

.. that would make a good start for a fairy tale…… or a romantic story perhaps?? ok agreed.. it could also be the start of a crime story… but this… looks more like a fairy tale to me. so that is where my muse, my inner child took me the other day… i love the forest.. love being with the trees, love the smell of moss, raisin and rotting leaves, the small sounds of little critters… the deep silence… and that’s where they are.. the tree sprits ..

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 !

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 β™₯

………. 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 !

… 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 πŸ™‚
images 3, 4 and 5 .. yes you guessed correctly….. some of my cardboard stash πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ wishing you all a great day… a good week… and please be careful and stay healthy πŸ™‚

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 β™₯
