a buxom country woman…. the title my friend gave this painting…… yeah… so it seems at first sight… but then is it really ? could she be something else…?? let’s hear a little more about Marguerite

answer to my friend’s email ๐Ÿ™‚ :


Hello my Friend ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m glad you like her ๐Ÿ˜Š a buxom country woman … yes that’s what she seems to be..mmmmmh… but did you notice the scale pattern on her dress? Is it even a dress,  is it a fabric pattern … or could they be proper fish scales … making her a mermaid in disguise?? An elderly,  buxom one, but also mermaids grow older … ๐Ÿ˜‰

and that is how this painting got it’s title……. MARGUERITE A BUXOM MERMAID. because yes… also mermaids grow older and expand a bit, well some do, others don’t. it is the same everywhere ๐Ÿ™‚ so here she is…. Marguerite. i think she enjoys visiting our world, enjoys being in contact with humans… her family is big, but her children have moved out of their home, got married and had children of their own… same story everywhere. but Marguerite had one big wish … and that was getting in touch with us humans. her disguise is…. very down to earth ๐Ÿ™‚ not what you expect a mermaid to look like. but then, how should mermaids look ? does it always have to be ‘glimmerglimmerglitzy? no certainly not. Marguerite likes her disguise, she sells fish on the market… and she is happy to be know as Marguerite, the fishmonger, and that is that….

Marguerite, a Buxom Mermaid in Disguise

so… Marguerite a Buxom Mermaid in Disguise would be the full title, but that’s a bit too long for some sites…. so let’s just stick to the original version.

Merci mes chers amis et amies … take care, have a lovely afternoon, enjoy it………. have fun ๐Ÿ™‚

love and light to all ……….. Pat โค โค โค ๐Ÿ™‚

p.s. yes of course she is for sale… if you are interested, just contact me through my DailyPaintworks.com homepage.

…. flying clown and half a mermaid …..

does the title make you curious? yes?? good ! that was my intention. well now… if you scroll down to my previous post you will see the WIP .. of the clown. the title of the painting however is “A Matter of Life”. i posted a text to go with it… to explain a little… give you some background where the muse took me this time. i also got a new WIP to add…….. but first things first

A Matter of Life

A Matter of Life

mixed media on watercolour paper – acrylics, acrylic ink, acrylic marker, graphite pencil

24 x 32cm – 9,4 x 12,6 in

Every morning is a new matter of life. Sometimes i wear a mask, masking my true feelings, hiding behind a laughing face, but not quite achieving to keep up the smile. A hand touches my head, giving me Blessings, the wind blows away the mask, bringing a fresh wind into the Matter of Life, the fish sing a happy tune and the sun smiles to herself, watching this everyday happening. Returning joy and happiness to this Matter of Life

…….. and now…. the WIP… no title yet. the bird and flower want my attention. well they will get it tomorrow.. too late now ๐Ÿ™‚

MARGUERITE – WIP

well that is her……. the WIP. her name is MARGUERITE…….. that is all i know about her so far. i will see where the muse will take me tomorrow.

and now…….. good night my friends ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

now to the wowowow part ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

love and light………. pat โ™ฅ

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 !!

… the sleeper on the church tower …

downloaded

Kirchturmschlรคfer – The Sleeper on the Church Tower

going through my galleries on pixels.com i found this.. Kirschturmschlรคfer… or in english.. the Sleeper on the Church Tower. it is rather old.. and i painted it with gouache.. the original isn’t available any longer but of course it can be purchased as print and on various products (also face masks) in my store >>> Kirchturmschlรคfer

i have started going through my galleries on pixels.com .. cause they added many new products.. and my older art is not yet available on all of them.. so i am taking it easy.. going from gallery to gallery.. picking out some art to be updated… but also deleting art i am no longer happy with. be it because i am no longer happy with the art as such.. or with the quality of the upload. it is fun going through the older stuff… fun.. but also inspiring.. energizing… giving new input ….

have a lovely weekend all ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy as a Snail in the Grass

mixed media with collage elements on canvas board… 18 x 24 cm .. original for sale.. just contact me for info please …

so.. this looks like one happy snail to me.. small wonder.. isn’t it in a lovely field, surrounded by magical flowers? ok.. perhaps the snail would be a tad bit happier in a light summery rain ? well i am not a snail so i wouldn’t know. but… i personally LOVE rain.. yes of course, i also like the sun.. but give me a rainy day and i am happy ๐Ÿ™‚ love the sound of the rain.. going for a walk in the rain.. and hearing the raindrops fall on the maples leaves right in front of my studio.. AND my bedroom (yes they both face the same side of the house) .. ๐Ÿ™‚ the smell of rain as it hits the asphalt… walking in the woods in the rain.. that heavy earth-moss-mushroomy smell……… heavenly ๐Ÿ™‚

wishing you all a lovely day.. !
