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 …… 🙂 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 🙂 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….  ….. 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 🙂 .. so they were my biggest worry 🙂

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 !!! 🙂

wishing you all a great new week !

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

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

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

my inner child is having a ball … “The red Cat on the Roof” … mixed media on cardboard

die rote katze auf dem dach downsizeddie rote katze auf dem dach – the red cat on the roof

mixed media with collage elements on cardboard. size 9 x 19 centimeters; signed on the front… i added a protective varnish to the painting. the original is for sale.. for info please contact me.

you might have noticed… my inner child is having a ball……. having fun and being totally happy. for a long time it had to stay put and quiet… act “grown-up” during my cancer treaments.. and all the stuff that happend during this particular journey. the inner child went very quiet .. tried to support me as much as possible, but i was not in the mood, not capable for fun and games.. preoccupied with other matters, my inner child got a bit neglected. but now things have changed and .. my inner child is back.. i give it all the attention it wants and i get “rewarded” by lovely, artsy input, images full of colour and life. i hope you all are having as much fun with this as i/we are having.

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 !!! ♥♥♥

Penelope Fish and Scarecrow .. uploaded and sold !

PENELOPE FISH …. and SCARECROW

isn’t it wonderful… these two paintings i uploaded to my facebook page.. and they sold within two hours. i am so grateful and happy 🙂 what more can an artist want than this kind of reaction to her/his art? 🙂

penelope is painted on cardboard… scarecrow on heavy watercolour paper. both are mixed media… penelope has collage elements, plus acrylics, acrylic ink and india ink. scarecrow has some acrylics, watercolour pastels and inktense pencil and a touch of acrylic ink. both of them got a finish..  a kind of varnish that prevents smudging, fading of colours and damage by humidity … if any of you would like to connect on Facebook .. just click on this LINK please ..

have a great day !
