… and here is a very sketchy Giselle… one that doesn’t laugh …

Giselle the cow that doesn’t laugh is the full title (see below)… there’s a advert going around here in Europe – only ?? i wouldn’t know – about a laughing cow.. that cow advertises cheese.. and very well so cause it works.. the advert.. at least it did on me.. i love that cheese .. even today. i don’t know if THAT cow has a name… but mine does. Giselle.. as i was sketching her she looked at me and informed me that this was her name.. ok. nobody’s gonna argue with a cow. so here we go……….

… 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

… a small drawing on cardboard .. and a story to go with it ……. in english and german …

canine story fertig downsized

as every morning, FIX the small terrier-mix – to the right in the drawing – joggs happily to the dog meeting place, as there is always stuff to explore, new smells and odours, tracks that need to be checked out .. and of course friends to meet.. friends with whom stories can be exchanged.. such as….. the other day…. the story about that cheeky little cat who dared to enter the dog meeting place.. ! what an upheaval that created.. the cat probably didn’t even realize what would happen… pure chaos erupted and the cat only managed to escape by taking a courageous leap over the high wall right next to the fountain. yes.. such were the stories that were exchanged and then……….
UPS …….. FIX stopped in his tracks… who is THIS ??? there she sits… right in front of him.. gives him a shy look .. and he just stands there.. thunderstruck, his little heart beating madly, not capable of moving even a fraction of an inch….. the girl doggie of his dreams    …….
up on the hill… the shaggy sheepdog has watched this magic encounter ….

mixed media with collage elements on cardboard

wie jeden morgen trabt FIX, der terrier-mix – rechts im bild – voller tatendrang zum hundeplatz. da gibt es für ihn immer viel zu entdecken.. neue gerüche, die man sorgfältig erkunden muss.. kumpels die man wieder trifft.. und mit denen man geschichten austauschen kann.. so wie z.b. neulich, als sich einfach eine freche katze auf den hundeplatz gewagt hatte.. das war vielleicht eine aufregung ! die katze hatte wohl gar nicht realisiert, auf was sie sich da einliess. es herrschte das pure chaos und die katze konnte sich nur mit einem gewagten sprung über die hohe mauer neben dem grossen brunnen aus der gefahrenzone retten.. ja also.. solche geschichten tauschte man aus… und dann………
……………… ups… FIX bleibt stehen….. wer ist denn DAS ?? da sitzt sie… vor ihm….. blickt scheu zu ihm rüber……. und er steht da, erstarrt, wie vom blitz getroffen……. sein herz rast wie wild.. aber er kann sich nicht bewegen.. seine traumfrau…….. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ………….
oben auf dem hügel sitzt der zottlige hütehund.. und beobachtet das ganze….. diesen magischen moment …….

patterns-textures-layers … sketches !

downsized

my muse and i decided it was time for some fun.. mind you.. being creative is always fun.. but if you create something in the hopes that PERHAPS somebody MIGHT be interested in buying your art.. there is a bit of an edge to the fun. at least for me … this however.. sketches.. are just that. sketches.. no ambitions and hopes that PERHAPS somebody MIGHT want to buy them.. if yes, great.. if not.. great ! so there is totally no pressure on the creative process.. no mights, and hopes attached, no fears of making mistakes.. just completely letting go and accepting what’s coming my way.. fun with testing and exploring different techniques.. different media.. mixing them.. scribbling, writing, drawing, using pencils, crayons, left-over sticks from burnt-down incense sticks, etc etc.. adding paper, gauze, acrylic gel medium.. anyway.. you get the drift. and now i finished this first set.. and already new ideas for another set are bubbling in my mind.

this feels GOOD, this is REFRESHING, this is how it should be !!! LIFE is GOOD 🙂 have a fabulous day and thanks for dropping by and reading this !

a work in progress

downsized wm

this has no title yet.. it is not even the original idea..

well it is.. but i is the photo of the sketch i made this afternoon.. my plan is to ink it with inktense pencils. i usually take photos as i work and when i uploaded this i thought i’d play around a bit with it .. in my graphics program.. and this is what happened … but i will still ink the original.. i think 🙂
