Penelope Fish and Scarecrow .. uploaded and sold !

PENELOPE FISH …. and SCARECROW

isn’t it wonderful… these two paintings i uploaded to my facebook page.. and they sold within two hours. i am so grateful and happy 🙂 what more can an artist want than this kind of reaction to her/his art? 🙂

penelope is painted on cardboard… scarecrow on heavy watercolour paper. both are mixed media… penelope has collage elements, plus acrylics, acrylic ink and india ink. scarecrow has some acrylics, watercolour pastels and inktense pencil and a touch of acrylic ink. both of them got a finish..  a kind of varnish that prevents smudging, fading of colours and damage by humidity … if any of you would like to connect on Facebook .. just click on this LINK please ..

have a great day !

second in my cardboardart series.. NIGHTNURSE

downsized

NIGHTNURSE

so here is the second contribution to my cardboardart, titled NIGHTNURSE … two more backgrounds are in the works. These weird characters … where do they come from ? I encountered them on my latest journey and will talk more about them later. i had so many positive and wonderful encounters and experiences on this journey.. but of course, there is always a not so nice side to everything, and slowly this side is also showing itself, emerging from deep within my soul. which is good.. a relief.. part of the process of acceptance and integration. so it is important to me to be able to put these characters down on paper.. or rather, on cardboard. however, so far i noticed something: yes, the characters are weird.. perhaps a bit scary at first.. but actually.. they are not. nightnurse is watchful, alert, vigilant, hearing everything and seeing everything. she protects and comforts… so is she really nightmarish? no.. she isn’t… she is just different…

Why Cardboard? the sizes of the paintings will vary.. as i use used cardboard.. the edges might be slightly off.. frayed.. the sides might be a bit crooked because they are cut-outs.. they can be tiny and they can be large. the main thing is.. they are used.. there is energy in them.. they are not pristine like watercolour paper that hasn’t been used before.. is clean and proper, almost virginal ..  this material has been in different hands, used, with a purpose, like a skin it is protecting the “insides” .. the goods.. the wares.. that is why i feel i can paint on this material.. it feels liberating, encouraging me to just “let go”.

Pensive Moment … thoughts from an optimist

downsized

PENSIVE MOMENT .. 

mixed media on cardboard .. 21×30 cm – 8.26×11.81 in .. new in my cardboard series – original for sale… for info pls. contact me.

i am glad to say.. i am an optimist. it is a gift i have and i am deeply grateful for.. i have encountered many things in life which knocked me over – at first – .. but i always got up again.. and with all of my heart i can say.. life is great.. !! however.. as an optimist i have encountered prejudices.. such as.. you don’t take things/life seriously.. you are shallow… etc, etc. well let me tell you something………. NO. optimists are NOT shallow and do take things seriously.. also as an optimist i have my down moments.. my moments when i flip out.. get angry, upset, feel insecure, hurt, scared… pensive etc. etc.. … but as an optimist i know that life goes on, nothing is ever as bad as it seems, and there is always a gold-nugget in the sh**t-heap.. it might be tiny, but it is there…… waiting for me. and once i found it… i take it.. treasure it, and believe it or not, gold nuggets can grow or multiply. as to the sh**t-heap.. THAT i use as manure for my gardenplants 🙂
have a lovely, positive day .. love and light to all
