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 πŸ™‚ :


Hello my Friend πŸ™‚

I’m glad you like her πŸ˜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 … πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

love and light to all ……….. Pat ❀ ❀ ❀ πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

… goodness … it’s been aaaages !!!

…. hi everybody… yes ages…… so much happened in the meantime… healthwise and artwise too of course πŸ™‚ i could add a few paintings and drawings here.. gosh…… and i will… slowly.. one by one. starting with the newest… the one that is not even finished yet ! but why not… i will show you my art in reversed order…. more or less. i am not a very organized person… more the spontaneous, temperamental, emotional type. ask my husband… he will confirm this for sure πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ poor man… i love him dearly πŸ™‚

yes well, so let me start with my WIP… the one i have started today.. it is about… 1/3rd finished… it has a working title, but i wont tell it… cause then you will start guessing what the finished artwork will look like and i do not want that. it is heavily mixed-media of course… πŸ™‚

healthwise… well my last MRI was not so good. it shows that the tumor in my spine has grown. that is why i need a wheelchair now when i have to master longer walks, i.e. as of about 10 steps i need it. at home i use a stick or my rolly .. either one. that tumor is a real bastard… not only is it of the “triple-negative” type.. oh no.. now it winds itself around my nerves.. the ones in my spine… approx. in the area of the coxxygial bone/lumbar vertebrae … now my doc is sending me for another spinal, thorax etc CT and a head MRI – yeah.. also got one tumor in my head. don’t think that it has grown though…. the side effects in my face haven’t worsened… so i do not really worry.. but we shall see.

i feel good mind you. .. at least in my head.. meaning… my psyche is just doing fine… only my body is getting unreliable. oh well, such is life. i am religious.. yes i believe in God and i know He is with me.. so why worry. i cannot change anything, anyway. worrying is just a waste of time. apart from creating art, i have now joined a hotline… a hotline that is open for senior citizens who feel lonely, who just want to chat, talk about their everyday life, complain about the “loud” neighbour, ask questions about various things… it is a very nice and rewarding “job” – a voluntary job of course. we are a team of about 40 people, we take our turns, our shifts are 3 hours, and we work about 2-3 shifts per week. we have clients that call daily… and others that just call once or twice. as i said… i enjoy doing it.

ok enought talk. here it is………. my latest WIP… enjoy and guess πŸ™‚ have fun πŸ™‚

Peace, Love and Light to all !!!

OK… one more… the last one i finished … the title is
A TALE OF LIFE

it’s been a long long time…….. since i’ve been here

…. and i do feel bad about it. sorry.. my apologies…….. but life just took over in a big way… so big that i was just not motivated enough to write on my blog. but now…… tadaaaaaaaa… here i am again . of course i created new art…… LOTS of it…….. and i am definitely getting more and more into the outsider art/art brut/ art singulier – corner…… and i LOVE it πŸ™‚ i will show it to you… one by one… and i will start with my newest creation. it has been suggested to me to make a series from that… but i am not sure if that will work. i DID start on a similar one though this morning……. so we shall see. so let us start with this one

TREE VIBES

and here they are……. those trees and their vibes… vibes touching and surrounding us… vibes that we can feel if we are in a very silent mood, as we are when we meditate or pray. … vibes touching us gently, with love.

the original of this mixed-media art is available in shop on Daily Paintworks .com …. just click on the link to go there… i am sure you will enjoy my art there πŸ™‚ to see Tree Vibes… hit this link >>> LINK

so, let me wish you all a wonderful day, and it feels good to be back πŸ™‚

… it is spontaneous …. and it is fun… and the title says it all … at least i think so

DANCING FULL OF JOY

I think the title really says it all : “DANCING FULL OF JOY” .. YES… it is happy, full of fun, movement, joy … what more can i say. that i created it very quickly, without thinking, just following my muse? ok.. then that is what i will say. it was strange working … because i was 3/4ers asleep. i was diagnosed with shingles on friday and girls and boys.. i thought i knew everything about being tired….. but NOW i am flat out. shattered, exhausted. just imagine what my body all needs to deal with… cancer, chemotherapy, shingles, a virus medicine, a blood thinner, chronic fatigue….. and now THIS on top of it all. but still, i want to create art and i am quite happy that i actually managed to create another piece, completely different, a digital abstract, created in PaintShopPro… here a small photo of it.. hope you like that too

PATTERN 004

this one can only be found in my Society6 store … just follow the link if you are interested. there is a ton of products available with it.. really fun and interesting πŸ™‚ >>>> artbymimulux on society6 … pay my shop a visit there… no need to buy anything… but perhaps you will find something you like.. and that would make me happy of course πŸ™‚ so enjoy πŸ™‚

love and light to all…….. and thanks for the visits πŸ™‚ … pat

taking a half turn and………. back to outsider art… my artistic life …….

it just seems to be difficult for me to stick to one style for more than one painting. mind you… it is always abstracts OR outsider art…….. painting, drawing…. whatever. but i need to be able to move… the freedom to follow the guidance of both, my inner child and my muse – which probably are one and the same anyway. so i follow them, it… and i am being led from one to the other… well it seems, this is just my artistic life…

4 SCARECROWS IN THE SNOW

4 SCARECROWS IN THE SNOW ……. I do admit… i am quite in love with this mixed media painting of mine. it developped so quickly… so lightly…. the instructions from the muse were so clear.. i just knew where we were going…… so here i am with my scarecrows… they started their journey in beautiful weather.. it was a lovely and sunny morning when they took off. by lunchtime they were in the midst of a blizzard… just imagine !! them still wearing their summerclothes and nearly losing their hats in the howling wind… well to be safe, they decided to find a sheltered place. which was behind an old red barn. there they stood, the four scarecrows, quite snowed in, glued to their spot on the ground… waiting for warmer weather to thaw them again …….

happy wednesday all πŸ™‚

…. nutty me… the patterns of a life ……. :)

Pattern of a Life

what more can i say.. this is me. with energy circles….. jumping up and down… playing snakes and ladders, letting my inner child take over… be creative, paint….. draw…… LIVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAAAAAAAAAAA !!! mais oui, c’est moi… it is me.. there are tears, there is sunshine… there are bubbly moments, stern moments…. ladders to climb up.. ladders to climb down.. there are caves and shady places.. there is sunlight and brightness… this is the way to live. let your inner child live, don’t forget that child inside of you…. give it space to grow, to be creative, have fun… and life will be so much easier to live :))

my two weeks of radio therapy are over…. i feel a bit less tired… though those strong pain meds still make me a bit drowsy.. but slowly i am getting used to them and soon i will be able to drive again. met my new physiotherapist today and i just know we will get along just fine..

meanwhile…. my inner child is having a ball……. because we are about to start on a new painting…. yayyyyyyyy to that πŸ™‚

all my art is for sale btw…… for info…… just contact me through me contact page… thanks πŸ™‚ be good, stay healthy….. and take care. much love and light to all !!!
