My first daffodil finally bloomed open her sunbeam petals. Daffodils symbolize rebirth and new beginnings, friendship, chivalry, respect, modesty and faithfulness. There are 13 different types of daffodils, based on the form of the flower.

They speak volumes to me and enable me to make a little more sense of my sometimes scrambled brain. “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Elizabeth Appell Our tulip poplar tree buds were painfully frost-nipped this week and may not experience this year’s beauty of blossom. I salvaged a few to last long enough in a bouquet and dug up these tulip tree tidbits: Native to most of the Eastern US states and one of the most popular American trees grown in France and England. It’s the state tree of Tennessee, Kentucky & Indiana. The tulip poplar is not a poplar ~ it’s a member of the magnolia family. Their petals resemble tulips, and each flower produces around a tablespoon of nectar, making the tree popular with beekeepers. Tulip poplar has also been called canoe tree because Native Americans and early settlers carved canoes from its light, buoyant trunks. #tulippoplar #treeart #tuliptree #ourplanetweek #natureillustration #floralart #floralpattern #linesketch #lineartist #linedrawings #botanicalsketch #illustrationdaily #nashvilleartist #patterndesigner #surelysimpleart #illustratie #asketchaday #1340art #adrawingaday #markerdrawing #illustrationhowl #artistocratia #womenwhodraw #100daysofflowers #just_penart #64millionartists #springyourflorals #28februaryflowers #stopbullying #mentalhealth #MentalHealthMatters #MentalHealthAwareness #64MillionArtists #buynow A Poem A Day To Keep The Sadness At Bay https://t.co/nbj2dQsqC4 #stopbullying #mentalhealth #MentalHealthMatters #MentalHealthAwareness #64MillionArtists #buynow A Poem A Day To Keep The Sadness At Bay amazon.co.uk/dp/B084DL7PKF/… A @64millionartists @wellcomecollection #creativity response . .

Home is where I feel safe and secure and where I can do whatever it requires to soothe my emotional health. #TheWeeklyChallenge #64MillionArtists Weekly Challenge time! This week we've been asked to think of an object that we might use to start a conversation about mental health. I've chosen my house keys. Home is where I feel safe, loved, cared for, valued, appreciated, happy, sad, creative, worried, angry, surprised, challenged, chat, silent and more. But always safe and secure and where I can do whatever it requires to soothe my emotional health. #TheWeeklyChallenge #64MillionArtists Can you find an object that might start a conversation about Mental Health? ❤️ Love this creative response from @kreativekipper. Thanks for sharing! #64millionartists #theweeklychallenge #thejanuarychallenge #creative #mentalhealthawareness #trafficlight This week’s challenge is from The Hub at @wellcomecollection! They are inviting you to share an object that might start a conversation around Mental Health. Thank you @emmuk74, for reminding us what starting a conversation might mean for someone. What would your object be? Check this week’s challenge list for more details! ❤️ #TheWeeklyChallenge #64MillionArtists #TheJanuaryChallenge #Creativity #mentalhealthawareness #letstalk Mind and matter : my object is my bed.... My bed My cage, Me hidden ,I’m hidden out of existence, whisper magic in my sleep. Cage knower of my secrets, guardians  the locks,Isolation lit from within. World restrains, cage peace. Shedding illusions I can no longer be. The restriction is my protection.  Unpicking the locks, Hope gives me wings And when I’m ready I  fly free One day at a time. #64millionartists #mindandmatter #mentalhealthawareness #theweeklychallenge #64millionartists Mind and Matter My 3D mindfulness "colouring book". Actually kid's cheap money boxes but fun to do at any age. The family has grown since I took this photo, but I am not taking the current collection outside in all the wind and rain we have just now. Is creating art the most important thing? Music? No. Tender love for PeOpLe is the most important thing. #chicago #saic #strugglingtoexpress #amwriting (?) #filtersonthree #64millionartists #vvbpreaw18 #shoiraotabekova #shoiraluxdushanbe #shoiralux✨ #shoirahon #shoira_otabekova #64millionartists #64mkr #64mkr #dushanbeshopping #renaultduster #teritobin#makkamadina #vidiosedih #sadmusic #muslim #muzikal Getting closer to the first dance. #64millionartists #januarychallenge Do join us in Bath for our first Creative Cafe Event -refreshments available free community workshop all welcome! #community #whatsonbath #workshop #creatives #64millionartists #challenges I have a shed to escape to, it allows me to sort my ‘inner-shed’ and maintain a balance.

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! ❤ . . .
