.... my own little project to restore something - fitting in with @64millionartists first weekly challenge of 2020 ... i’m making progress slowly but surely & i’m in love with decorating my little home ... #64millionartists #creative #artsandcrafts #candles #incense #home #bythewater #boatyard #caravan #cute #cosy #floral #giraffeseverywhere #decorating #headspace #selfcare #love #positiveenergy #aworkinprogress #64MillionArtists Had another go at painting with watercolours. 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! Anyone else do this? . . . . . . . #artoninstagram  #annasfunkyart #art2020  #artinspiration  #coolart  #artworld  #artoninsta  #arttoday  #arty  #originalart  #artwork  #acrylicpainting  #acrylicpaint  #acrylicart  #acryliccolors  #acryliconcanvas  #acrilicpainting  #hertsarts  #acryl  #acrylicartwork  #acryliccolor  #64millionartists  #abstractlandscape  #contemporarypainting  #studiowall  #underpainting  #ontheeasel  #contemporarypaintings  #abstractlandscapes  #abstractlandscapepainting Making progress I've started reworking this old painting (posted the old painting a few days ago) I've just got some new #winsorandnewton colours which I hope will really make this pop . . . . . . . #acrylicart  #annasfunkyart #acrylic  #acrylicpaint  #acrylicpaintings  #acryliconcanvas  #acrylicpaintingoncanvas  #acrylics  #64millionartists  #paintingoncanvas  #canvasart  #abstractart  #abstraction  #abstractexpressionism  #abstractpainting  #abstractartist  #modernart  #abstractmag  #abstractionism  #abstracts  #artists  #hertsarts  #artistsoninstagram  #artistic  #hyoc2020  #artoftheday  #artistoninstagram  #instaartist  #artcommunity “Your heart is full of fertile seeds, waiting to sprout.” – Morihei Ueshiba (founder of the martial art of Aikido) #lovegrowshere #heartart #ilovehearts #lovehearts #ihavethisthingwithhearts #heartseverywhere #heartgarden #ourplanetweek #portfolioclub #linesketch #lineartist #linedrawings #illustrationdaily #nashvilleartist #patterndesigner #surelysimpleart #illustratie #asketchaday #1340art #adrawingaday #markerdrawing #markerartist #illustrationhowl #artistocratia #womenwhodraw #just_penart #64millionartists #happyart #TheWeeklyChallenge is "The Repair Cafe" from @64millionartists...

Using the same method on hard canvas boards - this is what happened! What great results Art in Action The kids loved making their 'Forever Art' to take home . . . The crisp borders can only be achieved on high quality paper but we are lucky to have these artist quality hard boards donated by our Sponsors @sevenc3 Thank you . . . 'Forever Art' because it will last through their school years and beyond, they will always have art they loved making to display at home . . . Created on Weds @yellowqube1 at our After School Art school it was lots of fun ❤ . . . #kidskreate #brixton #lambeth #tulsehill #hernehill #southlondon #lambethcouncil #lambethschoolspartnership southlondonparents #freecommunityevents #64millionartists #artmatters #kidscreateatbrixtonlibrary #kidsarethebestartists #kidsmakethebestart #64millionartists #weekly challenge The repair shop Not strictly a repair but a day off and a few hours morning sun has inspired a little spring cleaning oasis? @denise.dodge.54 has responded to this week’s challenge by restoring her local area with a #litterpick! What could you restore, or repair using the things around you? #64millionartists #theweeklychallenge #thejanuarychallenge #litter #litterpicking Posted @withregram • @denise.dodge.54 #64millionartists #the weekly challenge So while I was thinking about the weekly challenge, whilst walking the dog on our community woodland, I decided repair could also be restore. So here is the rubbish collected in 3 visits so far.... Ironically one of the discarded plastic bottles is called Oasis! ☕️ The Repair Cafe! ☕️ The first weekly challenge of the year is to repair, or restore something around you. Love this from @kaztheraz! What could you repair? (Restoring cups of tea greatly encouraged...) #64millionartists #TheWeeklyChallenge #thejanuarychallenge #creative #repair Posted @withregram • @kaztheraz The daily challenges have become weekly ones! The challenge this week it's to get creative and repair or restore something. I've re-strung my friend's short, antique coral necklaces into one for her (keeping the original clasp of course!). #64MillionArtists #theweeklychallenge Today I completed a page from my #wreckitjournal that my topshop family got for my leaving do. Inspired by @willowing take a look at her beautiful art. . . #art #journaling #artjournal #artjournaling #willowingarts #wreckthisjournal #wreckthisjournalideas #inspiration #love #selfportrait #portait #imagination #64millionartists Survey rhymes with...yay!

What statement do you want to make to the world? " Reflecting on how I'm feeling today . think less PAINT MORE . The paint drips are from me playing around with Rebelle's tilt tool - its pretty fun! Put together with text in PS and printfuls mock up generator Day 16: WHATEVER THE WEATHER #64millionartists Capturing the day of a few locals looking for a feed. Usually so happy and bouncy they are quite miserable and subdued today My 'frame' is my cold hand on this gloomy, wet and windy, chilly for Brisbane Summer day. ☔ Day 15: HERE'S LOOKING AT YOU #64millionartists "Draw two quick and colourful self portraits. One with dominant hand (my right) and then another using non dominant hand." Oooff... so this challenge I have been procrastinating and wriggling with discomfort about for nearly 2 weeks. Feeling pretty proud of myself as today I felt brave enough and pushed through the raging anxiety! Yay!!! I think this challenge was meant to be 10 ish minutes? I did 30 mins each side to convince that crappy nagging perfectionist in my head that this was a good experiment. Does it look like me? Close enough. My first self portrait/s. Am I happy with them? Very. Much better than I expected. Very interesting how I feel inside myself right now - much calmer and more confident. Digital watercolour on damp canvas. Self imposed rules of 3 undos for the whole challenge and the eraser for reflections on the eyes. Used the same brushes, colours etc on both sides. Now to release this out into the world . . . . . . #selfportrait #selfportraits #digitalwatercolor #rebelle #huion #artchallenge #overcominganxiety #digitalart #selfportraitpainting #watercolourpainting #watercolorpainting Looking forward to our Art Club tomorrow @yellowqube1 Free for kids every Weds 4-6pm Drop in, no need to book . . . #kidskreate #kidskreateatyellowqube #tulsehill #hernehill #brixton #lambeth #southlondon #lambethcouncil #lambethlife #brixtonmums #kidskreatefreeartclub #freecommunityevents #artmatters #getyourkidsintoart #getkidscreating #64millionartists #kidsarethebestartists #kidsmakethebestart #lambethlibraries #lambethschoolspartnership . . . ⭐ ⚠️ ✅ Let’s talk about the C word ... “Cancer” Even the word itself brings a spike of hatred loathing and fear through me, but, if Harry Potter taught me anything at all, it’s to not give power to names and words “Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.” (Thanks Dumbledore) So, let’s talk about it ... Today is #WorldCancerDay My dad died from cancer in September last year ( that’s a strange and surreal sentence to write) he was a huge mogwai supporter from the beginning (and △⃒⃘lways my biggest fan), he liked all of our mogwai posts and shared the ones he really liked on his Facebook account... so, this ones for him! World cancer day Is about cancer awareness, detection and prevention. Unfortunately, cancer invades most of our lives in one way or another, and we all have our stories, memories, battles and victories ... today is about talking about them and about spreading the word. As a digital design company we struggled with what we could do today (and we wanted to do something), We decided that what we can do is show solidarity, we can talk about it on our social media, use the hashtags that are being pushed today to get them trending even higher, and take the time to once again give a huge amount of credit and thanks to the awe inspiring Bracken Trust and the amazing world they do “empowering people to live with, through and beyond cancer.” To all of you fighting, you’re warriors To those supporting, you’re stronger than you think. To those that have made it to a cancer free diagnosis, my heart bursts with how happy I am for you. And to anyone whose lost someone via this horrible illness, I have just seen this quote and I thought it was beautiful “cancer can’t survive death, but love can” Sam x #keepstrong #worldcancerday2020 #worldcancerday #cancersucks #cancer #cancerawareness #cancerawarenessmonth #cancer #worldcancerresearchday #worldcancer #keepstrong #truth #fighters #warriors #love #life #live #grief #dad #mydad #imissyou #february2020 #canceraware #colour #rainbow #heaven #64millionartists #repairyourheart #repair More art from my class, Create it https://www.threeriversleisure.co.uk/regular-classes . . . . . #acrylicpainting  #annasfunkyart  #acrylicart  #painting  #creativeherts  #hyoc2020  #acylic  #acrylicsoncanvas  #acrylicpour  #abstractexpressionism  #abstractartwork  #abstraction  #abstractlovers  #modernpainting  #abstractionism  #abstractarts  #moderngallery  #artclassroom  #artworkshop  #artday  #studentart  #artlessons  #studioart  #artteaching  #newskills  #hvafmembers  #hertscreatives  #competitionseason  #64millionartists My talented students!

It helped me to see it as a creative challenge...sx #64millionartists #theweeklychallenger Week 1 Repair This lovely elephant hanging (Dog Trust Shop £1.50) was held up by double sided tape but kept falling off. I tacked it on - mended! #64millionartists #TheWeeklyChallenge 3rd Feb - Repair Cafe. Don't have anything needing repair atm so rescued 2 failed projects. The glass painting failure now a success as a pen holder and the felt animal which was incapable of being sewed or stuffed a quite acceptable card #theweeklychallenge #64millionartists 3rd Feb- The Repair Cafe Don't have anything needing repair atm so rescued 2 failed projects. The glass painting failure now succeeds as a pen holder and the felt animal which was incapable of being sewed or stuffed has become a card. #theweeklychallenge #64millionartists 3rd February - The Repair Cafe. Don't actually have anything needing repair atm so rescued 2 failed projects. The glass painting failure is now a success as a pen holder and the felt animal which was incapable of being sewed or stuffed makes a quite acceptable card #64millionartists challenge was to mend something. I've had this cardigan for ages and it never hung right on me. So this evening I've closed up the front to make it the back and hacked a new front neckline. My workmanship needs refining. But I'm really pleased with how the new top looks and I'm counting it as my #memademonday #64millionartists #theweeklychallenge Week1 The Repair Shop.
