… and the series continues ….

my outsider art is happily continuing… i am finding it more and more easy to let my inner child take over. mind you.. the controlling inner grown-up or critic always tries to get a foot in the door.. but as we go on it no longer feels threatening.. or even overpowering… it is possible to get that foot away and close the door to that critic.. that spoil-fun .. nagging, grumbling other side… not in a “brutal” way.. but in a gentle but firm manner. Telling it to stop right there, setting my boundaries and clearly.. drawing a line.. 🙂
so here is the latest in my series… as all of my art, this is also for sale… and if you are interested please drop me a line.

Hänsel und Gretel kommen aus dem Wald / Hänsel and Gretel emerging from the Forest
acrylic ink on paper
14.5 x 21 centimeters

i hope you enjoy my latest art … thanks for viewing it 🙂

will she talk to me ? … wird sie mit mir reden ? … mixed media on cardboard

will she talk to me from cloud downsized

will she talk to me ? … wird sie mit mir reden ?

poor fella .. he does seem to be a bit intimidated by her… he would love to approach her.. talk to her.. but would she respond.. would she even be aware of him? fears and insecurity are happening big time .. but i hope he will gather up his courage and just.. say something to her. i am sure she will respond.. she is not as intimidating as she looks… good luck to him ! 🙂

mixed media on cardboard.. size 19 x 9 centimeters

expressive outsider art – WISE ONE ..

downsized

i honestly don’t know if the term is “correct” .. but i feel it is……… my style is very expressive.. and i am definitely an outsider…….. and intuitive arist.. and i use a lot of symbols in my art.. but that would be too much.. expressive-intuitive-symbolic-outsider … def too much. so i stick to.. what i said in the title.

anyway… the wise one… the ancient tree… symbol for life, for the self… for growth, family.. deeply rooted in mother earth… reaching for the heavens… spreading, growing .. branching off, whilst the roots grow and spread within the ground, stabilizing and nourishing the tree .. i will not go into detail.. i think we all have our own views, our own meanings, stories and histories connected to trees…

i love trees. the beautiful almost perfect ones.. but even more so the gnarly ones.. the oddly shaped ones.. with faces and knobs and scars.. they have their stories to tell .. how wonderful it is to be with such a tree… in silence, listening and feeling the story it has to tell us.

The Wise One … can be purchased … the original painting is available on ArtFinder , prints in my usual shops on RedBubble, FineArtAmerica/Pixels.com and Artflakes. for info please go to my Buy my Art page .. thank you 🙂

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 !

a series within a series – Brain Surgeon

finished preview for wp an insta

Brain Surgeon

This is probably a start into a new series within my cardboardart, which in itself is a new series.  … a set of weird characters … this is the first one, titled Brain Surgeon … two more backgrounds are in the works. These weird characters … where do they come from ? I encountered them on my latest journey and will talk more about them later. i had so many positive and wonderful encounters and experiences on this journey.. but of course, there is always a not so nice side to everything, and slowly this side is also showing itself, emerging from deep within my soul. which is good.. a relief.. part of the process of acceptance and integration. so it is important to me to be able to put these characters down on paper.. or rather, on cardboard. Why Cardboard? the sizes of the paintings will vary.. as i use used cardboard.. the edges might be slightly off.. frayed.. the sides might be a bit crooked because they are cut-outs.. they can be tiny and they can be large. the main thing is.. they are used.. there is energy in them.. they are not pristine like watercolour paper that hasn’t been used before.. is clean and proper, almost virginal .. but this material has been in different hands, used, with a purpose, like a skin it is protecting the “insides” .. the goods.. the wares.. that is why i feel i can paint on this material.. it feels liberating, encouraging me to just “let go”.
