… following the path …

last night the muse took over.. only went to bed around 2 a.m. finished 3 paintings which were kind of half finished… and started on a new one. .. well actually 2 new ones…… i want to show them to you here.. input is always welcome:) i notice that i seem to become more and more.. tribal.. or archaic? what is the right word for it? archetypal ?? anyway… have a look.. and let me know please 

i will give you some thoughts i have.. which doesn’t happen too often.. i know    … the finished ones are in the middle photo.. as i said.. very tribal.. i guess my living in africa for several years – and asia too of course – definitely influences me there.. these paintings are very.. raw in a way.. deep, go way way back.. generations back….. are emotional and highly symbolic.. they show guardians, spirits, protectors, they are in a dreamworld, an in-between-world, there is mythology in them.. greek, roman… and more.. further back.. shamanism and superstition…… i know they cannot be seen too cleary.. yet… the one on the left is a nature spirit.. the middle one.. the woman is the weaver.. and to the right are guardians…

the new one i started on last night.. is that face.. in the shadow.. not quite clear.. there.. and yet not. it symbolises fear.. we all know fear.. we all have it.. sometimes more.. sometimes less.. it comes out of the shadows before my three-monthly checkups.. will all be ok ?? .. sometimes it becomes big and almost overwhelms us.. then it grows small again and almost disappears…. almost… but never quite. but that is ok.. fear.. is also a guardian.. a friend even.. it should not be pushed into the shadows but be welcomed and accepted.. fear protects us from doing silly things.. rash things.. dangerous things.. fear make us think, reflect … fear should be embraced…because

the more fear is pushed away from us.. the bigger and larger it will grow.. becomes a presence.. ruling our life.. there is no need to be afraid of it .. smile at fear and make it your friend … ……. …. my technique here is again very mixed media.. and.. i put the brushes aside and used my fingers to paint.. so this is really very very personal… not quite finished… but not far from being completed………

this and that – an update

wordspace

my creative space, in all its “cluttered” glory.  but i feel at home there and comfy… so.. i leave it as it is.. mostly. here… two works in progress….. a mixed media painting and a new page in my art journal.. whilst one dries.. i work on the other.

big plans.. definitely attempting to make a homepage now.. seriously. have been thinking about it for a long time and so far it made more sense to upload my art into galleries .. but now some things have changed.. for one paypal makes it easier to sell directly from a homepage or a social media page.. for the other i feel more “secure” about writing about my work.. keeping up a blog.. so i have decided to make a page on wordpress. i like wordpress, have been having my blog there for years, so i am a bit familiar with it. building a homepage however, is quite a different cup of tea. so if any of you have suggestions, input.. i am all ears. i have found a theme which i like and which i think suits my ideas, it is from the portfolio section..

so.. this is just a quick update 🙂
wishing you all a very happy weekend … and happy st. patrick’s day to all my irish friends 

love, light and many smiles
