…. 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

hi there, it’s me again… with some ECHOES FROM THE PAST

… this is actually the title of my new piece of art….. ECHOES FROM THE PAST… which would also mean.. memories. what memories do i have from my past…… what memories do you have from your past?? is it all good, better and best ? or bad, worse… worst ? to me it is a bit of both. there are good memories… wonderful ones in fact…… others are not so nice….. but then what to do… shrug your shoulders and move on. the past is the past and cannot be undone.. it is part of US… our personal history…. or life… it has formed us…. made us into what we are today…… that’s just life isn’t it………..

ECHOES FROM THE PAST

here we go again… the sales pitch…… visit my gallery on ArtPal … it’s worth dropping by and having a look.. there are still a few days before christmas ……… :)) salespitch is over now .. relax all πŸ™‚

wishing you all a marvelous afternoon… be good, be happy, be healthy πŸ™‚ much love and light… pat

… so it looks… like this is not a one-time thing ….

… my love to create stories within stories seems to be the style i like best… no comments from my side… let the viewer of my art find her or his story.. her/his component of my art that resonates within that person… and create their own story from it. so here is another one… BIRD AND APPLETREE it is called… another story… with more story elements integrated into it. it is a mixed media drawing on paper … 32 x 24 cm big… or make that 12.5 x 9.4 inches — and yes of course it is also for sale. for more info please contact me. this piece of art is also available in my various online stores.. such as mimulux.pixels.com … or RedBubble .. for more info just check out my “Buy my Art” page — just click on the link …
i am already working on a new story within a story… ….. β™₯ β™₯ β™₯ — have a great week all !

… so then i realized something …

i noticed that as of late.. my art started feeling.. “stiff” .. not as spontaneous as it used to be… i thought too much about what i was doing. it felt like …. mh .. imagine a hand.. instead of being open and relaxed it was curled into a tight fist.. it happened several times that when i had finished .. or almost finished a painting.. i just overpainted the whole thing again .. using either gesso, black or white paint because i did not like it… it felt wrong, not me, so i wanted a fresh start. however, i don’t like that !!! ok.. my one excuse might be that i am going through chemotherapy.. that makes me feel incredibly tired amongst other things.. on the other hand, art is what keeps me awake, so to say… so i decided i needed to learn to let go again. instead of a tight fist.. i should open that hand and shake it lose… so… i brought my sketch book to the living room. placed it on the table and as i was watching tv the other night, i took that sketch book and a ballpoint pen … and just started drawing.. not really paying attention to what i was doing.. i just let go.. let lose.. i just went with the flow.. and it felt right.. and in the end.. THIS had happened… as i was watching TV

starting on a new one …

downsized

starting on a new piece of art is always an adventure for me… cause my inner child and my muse take control.. i let them handle it… give them free reign. i suppose.. it will be another piece of happy art – that’s what my inner child and i decided to call my style …… πŸ™‚ when people tell me that my art puts a smile on their face and makes them happy… well i guess, i may call it that πŸ™‚ HAPPY ART ……… from a happy artist.

waves… curves… that is what i see … but of course this is no indication at all, of what the finished piece will look like, what it will be all about.. the adventure can take me in all directions.. i am a drifter…… following the input i get, putting it down on this canvas board, embarking yet on another journey, guided by my inner child, my muse.. the collective unconscious, trusting the process that has started, feeling safe….Β  ….. happy weekend to all !

.. 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 πŸ™‚ .. so they were my biggest worry πŸ™‚

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 !!! πŸ™‚

wishing you all a great new week !
