oh wow………

it is AAAAAAAAAAGES……. since i have been here last. i just couldn’t write. i was in hospital twice… once i even landed on ICU and my family was called by the docs… were told to wish me goodbye & farewell … well as you can see, i am still here.. thank you God for that šŸ™‚ i am still with my lovely husband, family, friends… carers, … careres…. yes….. because they care …. for me…… and about me. and that is wonderful… my cancer is the same as before… i think at the moment the metastases have been stopped from growing more. they haven’t spread either … but of course i am in a wheelchair. i can not walk longer distancances… well short ones neither. thus the wheelchair. i do have a ROLLI tho… short stretches like in my apartment are ok with that. and the beauty is.. i can turn it around and sit down in it. that is good because my legs just give out at times….. how to walk properly if there is no feeling in your legs, your feet, your thighs ? awkward i can tell you. but i am good. no more than that. i am fine šŸ™‚ God is with me.. i love Him i can tell ya. HE does so much for me too….. HE is the real carer … as i said, i LOVE him and i care for him too and i am full of gratitude for the lovely things i get daily. i am forever grateful for this gift i got from Him. … i am a positive person… i am an optimist… and i love life. this is what lets me live with cancer, cancer that – according to meds – is not cureable. … cancer in the last stage.. i have palliative care…… palliative meaning —> perhaps prolonging life, making living circumstances more comfy…
my death has been taken care of. i have made plans, which i still need to write down, but it is all here in my head… having looked at death and having made those plans… i can put all of this death-stuff aside and continue enjoying life šŸ™‚
of course, when i was hospitalised i did not create art….. just one piece of a grumpy fish, very art brut, outsider art in style, this little fish in his grumpyness went off to the USA. but my creativity is back. i have made a few new paintings, and just today i started on a new piece of art… the background is happening. at the same time, ok about 2 weeks ago, i re-discovered an old love. knitting. at the moment it is either knitting or painting… my hands are always busy in a way. knitting has become my way to get grounded again… it is so zen, meditative, relaxing, fun… in short… i LOVE knitting šŸ™‚ i will show you……. i am making a pair of sox for my bestie friend in the USA … and i will also show you my new background. and apart from that you have plenty to read …… so i will come to an end now. look at the pics… read what i wrote… or don’t … and i wish you all a lovely weekend.

with much Love and Light ………. pat aka mimulux šŸ™‚


p.s. ok.. you are right… i changed my mind.. i only uploaded art i created since leaving hospital. some of them are for sale… please check out my homepage on DailyPaintworks … tada.. see ya šŸ™‚

………. 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 šŸ˜€ … 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.Ā  but now…. I DO !! and THIS is my kind of art.. YES !!! love it or not…….. up to you ….

ok.. had my say šŸ™‚ as to Winston… it is a mixed media painting on cardboard..Ā  19 centimeters wide.. and 9/13.5 cm high.. it is recycled cardboard.. from a catfood box haha šŸ™‚ ……. the painting is for sale.. for info contact me please šŸ™‚

have a wonderful day and weekend.. take care……. and stay healthy please !

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………..

THINKING HAPPY THOUGHTS .. mixed media on heavy watercolour paper. original is SOLD šŸ™‚ but prints etc. are available on RedBubble and FineArtAmerica/Pixels.com

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 !!! ā™„ā™„ā™„

Pensive Moment … thoughts from an optimist

downsized

PENSIVE MOMENT ..Ā 

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 šŸ™‚
have a lovely, positive day .. love and light to all
