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 🙂

… 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 ..

.. a new experience .. and a lovely compliment !

so… this is Neighbours … a commission artwork for a dear friend and customer in the USA. this is my first commission and i admit.. i did not know if i could pull it off ….. why? cause i am an intuitive artist.. i never have an image of what i will create… i just go with the flow, the art develops as i work and this however, was different .. totally different. but i have to say, my friend knows me of course and gave me a lot of freedom to create this artpiece.. only the two doggies.. they HAD to be poodles 🙂 .. so they were my biggest worry 🙂

but… i did manage to create it.. and it was a good experience.. a very disciplined way of working, there were certain “givens” which i had to observe – apart from the doggies … but there was also a lot of freedom .. all in all i must say.. i had lots of fun and i want to thank my customer for giving me this great oportunity, to experience a new approach… i think that is a wonderful compliment !!! 🙂

wishing you all a great new week !

Under the Sun … and some inspiration

this morning i looked through some of my last year’s art.. and found Under the Sun .. and i remembered my inktense pencils.. true… this artpiece is also mixed media.. but based on inktense pencils.. the background was mostly created using them.. and of course the birds, sun, clouds…

i have a large box of them.. and i love them.. their colours are so vibrant .. and so nice to work with.. so why haven’t i been using them?? honestly i don’t know.. i was a bit out of it.. for whatever reason… not too motivated.. kind of a funny mood..

well anyway… seeing Under the Sun gave me the push….. and i started on a new inktense pencils mixed media piece.. first i just scribbled various colours on my watercolour paper.. and then with water.. i created a first layer for a background.. as usual.. i have of course NO IDEA whatsoever where this is going.. that’s the fun of it……. let my inner child take over again 🙂 have a fabulous week all !

Night in the Cloud Village ……… nacht im wolkendorf …

Nacht im Wolkendorf - DOWNSIZZED

Nacht im Wolkendorf – Night in the Cloud Village

way up, high in the clouds.. that’s where this little village is situated… on the road from wakefulness to sleep.. .. as we drift off……. as our bodies start to feel lighter .. our eyes are closed .. and gradually we glide into sleep ……… that is when we reach the village ……..

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 🙂 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. 🙂 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 ♥

ufff… lucky me ! i really thought she’s gone ………

who ?? my muse………….. phew…………. thought she deserted me again. she does have that bad habit of simply taking off……. just like that…….. without a word of warning…. one minute she is here……….. and poufffffffff next minute …… ……………… she’s gone……… that is very irritating and annoying.. if she told me i could prepare myself.. get enough book stash to keep me busy…… enough tea to make myself comfy in my reading corner… but NO… not this one. but………. i am glad to say i think.. she’s still around. at least i started painting again this morning… had some ideas .. working on backgrounds.. i feel relieved. so today i will show you an older mixed media painting of mine.. why this one? well.. you’ll see.. it is a doggie one.. and i think my muse whispered something about a doggie into my ear……… let’s see……. so here goes………..

yes……….. we – my muse et moi – went very much outsider art / art brut yesterday….. she took me to my office … and i picked out a background which i had started creating weeks ago.. i LOVE creating backgrounds……… and just having them around me.. adding layers and textures… putting them aside….. and suddenly……… the creative spark hits me and i know… now the background is finished and we can take it from there….. and spontaneously the painting happens..
here i used mostly waxcrayons – neocolor – some inktense pencil and acrylics.. plus of course various papers, collage elements for the background, giving texture…
yes… it is for sale…….. for more info contact me please … have a great day !
