Mind and Matter ❤ #64millionartists This week’s challenge is set by The Hub at Wellcome Collection @wellcomecollection. Wellcome Collection is ‘the free museum and library for the incurably curious,’ that explores the connections between science, medicine, life and art. Wellcome Collection uses objects to tell stories. And now, it’s over to you… Can you think of an object that you might use to start a conversation about mental health? You could take a photo of the object, draw a picture, or write a description. Find a way to represent what that object means to you – express yourself through words, music, drawing – or whatever feels good to you. In September, The Hub at Wellcome Collection will be running ‘Ideas Hub’ – a week-long programme to explore the links between mental health, power and ownership.

During my afternoon walk, I recorded on my phone two minutes of my walk. When I returned home, I listened to the sounds and wrote this. #64millionartists #theweeklychallenge #thesoundofthisplace #afternoonwalk #singing #chirpingbirds #befree #poetry #justpractising #64millionartists #thejanuarychallenge Trying out some more of the Photoshop stuff I learnt as part of the January Challenge "You can't do sketches enough. Sketch everything and keep your curiosity fresh." – John Singer Sargent After curiously viewing the delightful Eric Carle (Hungry Hungry Caterpillar) exhibit at Nashville’s Frist Art Center, I found myself drawn into their Martin ArtQuest Gallery (an art activity center). There was a giant bouquet of unreal-full-of-color flowers, easels, paper and a few pale-color-pencils (pens are not allowed). Since I start all my sketches with a pigma pen, after a what-do-I-do-now moment, I arrived at this sketch and fresh mixed media piece. #seasonalfloralchallenge #springyourflorals #floralart #ihavethisthingwithflowers #flowerart #flowersketch #drawingflowers #100daysofflowers #flowersyourway #ourplanetweek #linesketch #lineartist #illustrationdaily #nashvilleartist #nashvilleblogger #fristartmuseum #martinartquest #surelysimpleart #illustratie #asketchaday #1340art #adrawingaday #markerdrawing #markerartist #illustrationhowl #artistocratia #womenwhodraw #64millionartists #happyart #28februaryflowers Goody goody Gumdrop Day! Who doesn’t smile at the memory of a gumdrop or landing on Candyland’s Gumdrop Pass and Gumdrop Mountain? Goody goody tidbits: Gumdrops are an American invention. Gumdrops are most eaten in the winter. The first Gumdrops became popular and were named in the mid 1800’s. Modern Gumdrops, which are softer, are credited to chemist and candy manufacturer Percy Trusdale, aka the Gumdrop King.

Most of us struggle with thinking we are not good enough. But believe me when I tell you, you are so much more than you think. Your soul, your spirit, you art is unique... There is no one else that can think or feel or be the way you are and that is reflected in your art. Do your thing, put your art out there, and love what and who you are . . . . . . . . #originalartwork  #annasfunkyart  #artfromtheheart  #64millionartists  #artforsalebyartist  #artonline  #artworld_daily  #intuitiveartist  #artmakesmehappy  #artcommunity  #artcollections  #dontquit  #nevergiveup  #dreambig  #bepatient  #neverquit  #strongmind  #dontgiveup  #selfbelief  #bethebestyou  #positivethinking  #intuition  #dailyaffirmations  #spiritualjourney  #mindful  #spiritualguidance  #believeinyourself  #innerwork  #spiritualquotes  #lifepath #TheWeeklyChallenge #64MillionArtists Sound Prompt ❤ Happy Valentines to you and yours ❤ Feeling the Love today and saying Thank You to all the great and good people who support Kids Kreate ❤ We are lucky and happy to have such wonderful folk in our lives ❤ . . . ❤ We especially love #brixtonlibrary #brixtontatelibrary @lambeth_council @yellowqube1 and @stationhall_hernehill for supporting children and families through the provision of space for weekly free creativity at our Art Club We could not do this without you ❤ . . . ❤You make a lot of children and families very happy . . . ❤ Big Thanks also to our Sponsors this year @sevenc3 who brought a bounty of art materials to @yellowqube1 on Wednesday ❤ They helped the kids to decorate and embellish their Tote Bags, aren't they FAB! ❤ . . .

It has to be the sound of the waves, heard from the pier, the place I’d drag Sam to, in her wheelchair, bundled up with scarves and blankets, tucked into her waterproof poncho, hoping she liked it, not knowing what else to do but take her back to the sound she grew up with, waves dragging shingle up and down the beach. #fuckms Last minute work flew in today for some social media graphics with valentine food puns ... Sat here sketching out a few ideas has left us nothing but HUNGRY ! What’s your favourite foody valentine pun?

Keep going even when things don't go the way you think they should. We learn through failure and nothing happens quickly or first time; we need to practice and learn and fail, over and over. Eventually it will all come together and you will reap the benefits of your success. Until then, be patient and enjoy the ride! #theweeklychallenge #64millionartists 10th Feb - My Day in 60 seconds.

Word image piece ' words, words, words' #64millionartists #mondayChallenge #poetry #language The Sound of This Place ! ',words,words words' #64millionartists #The Monday Challenge #poetry #wordimage #soundscapes This week's challenge is to capture the sounds of your place. If you are deaf or hearing impaired, could you choose a different sense to capture the personality of your chosen place? What does it smell like? What are the tastes, sights or textures around you? #64MillionArtists This week’s challenge is set by Gordon Baxter. Gordon has taken inspiration from Chiarra Luzzana’s “The Sound of City” project (google it! It's super cool! ), and challenges you to capture the sounds of the place where you live. What story do they tell? Close your eyes and just listen for a few moments… Can you capture the sounds around you without using images? You might choose to write a short poem or story that describes the sounds, or spend a couple of minutes recording the sounds using a voice recorder, or by taking a video on your phone (and blocking out the camera.) Could you use the sounds of this place to create some music? You might choose to use your recordings in a musical composition – or use the place as your percussion!

Never how I picture them in my head but enjoyed having a go. Not sure if this one is finished yet. I'll sit with it for a few days and see what it says to me. Yes I'm one of those intuitive artists that listens to their paintings - part of my process is to just sit and look!
