I get to paint with my amazing mentor and friend @leeannepwright today!! She makes the learning so fun!! I hope all of you get to do something you think is fun today... #startcollectingart #cornergallerynorfolk #keepitsimple #art #annetemplepaintings #studioatcornergallery @studio.at.cornergallery #artforyourwalls #artforsale #artforyoureveryday #artforyourhome #artmakesyouhappy #dosomethingyoulove #dosomethingfun
My largest painting to date! ‘She Had a History’ She’s a whopper- 187x123cm I love working this size as I can put my whole body behind it- it’s almost like a dance with large sweeps of wide brushes and hands and pastels. Somehow it feels as if I have space to play and I feel I can be much freer and inventive, exploring new forms and ways of moving paint. The one downside is the lack of space in the studio for when I’m working on other stuff- a canvas this big tends to dominate a space! So she really needs a new home, just in case you’re interested in a nearly 2 m wide work of art 😋
Day 17 of #21daysinmyartworld and we're going the opposite direction from yesterday, to BIG paintings. This is my largest to date {about 100x142cm} although for some reason the sofas don't help show how massive it is as planned! Perhaps it's more psychologically massive! My previous largest is on the left. The Venice one is almost finished I think - really been quite a battle as this is not the direction I thought it would - or wanted it to - go, but it's taught me so much. My friend C {who's doing a 'twin' version of the same image in his own style} has bloody well finished {not at all envious!} so will share a pic of both soon. . Ps. Been feeling bad about not keeping up with all your wonderful challenge posts. Please know I do look through them as much as possible and am so happy to see so many enjoying it and supporting each other. ❤

My notes so far this year: Let the things that matter, matter. Let everything else go. >>> Still under construction in my studio. Whatevs. This new collection has taken time, and a lot of love and I’m happy about that. Paint canvas first. ✔️ Texture walls later. ✔️

Today's prompt for #21daysinmyartworld is smallest painting. I used to make these little framed painting necklaces for friends birthdays, etc. This one holds a 1x1 inch image. These are both little watercolor paintings accented with ink. I think I painted these like 7 years ago??? Pretty sure that my art has never gotten much smaller than this.👀👓🤣 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #passioncolorjoy #carveouttimeforart #risingtidesociety #courageouscreative #colorcrushcreative #miniart #minipainting #watercolor #createmakeshare #creativelifehappylife #mybeautifulmes #emergingartist #borntocreate #calledtobecreative #livecreatively #livecolorfully #wearableart #thatsdarling #doitfortheprocess #dsart #paintanyway #artistatwork #artistlife #artforlife #livewithart #artforyoureveryday #artworkoftheday #persuepretty #artistmom

Day 17/ 21 #21daysinmyartworld with @taraleaver SMALLEST PAINTING As you know, I love working small! Most of my paintings are 20x20 cm but I have done even smaller. It's quite funny how I got used to this format, as my first intension was to paint big huge canvases! I've always dreamed of this, but I've never had the proper space to do it. Let's face it - working on your dining table is not the best place for art! And these small size canvases are actually a life saver (and much more comfortable for work!) 😄 Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I fell in love with those little bites of art and now I am addicted! I can't stop doing them! 🎨 They are just great for my monthly project! ❤ And what about you? Do you like small size paintings? . . . . . . . . . #doitfortheprocess #smallcanvas #smallworks #miniworks #smallpainting #mixedmedia #abstraktekunst #abstractpaintings #acrylicpaintings #wip #studioscenes #creativeprocess #artcollective #artcollector #artforyoureveryday #artforyourwalls #cycollective #artforsale #artwork #abstractart #dscolor #dsart #abmlifeiscolorful #designsponge #moderndecor #interiordecoration #courageouscreative #colorcrushcreative #passioncolorjoy

Day 16 of #21daysinmyartworld is our smallest piece. . I had to chuckle when I saw this prompt because I’ve been doing these mini collages with the many, many little scraps of paper I have.

“Allow beauty to shatter you regularly” - Victoria Erickson // DOUBLE TAP if you Love Process videos 🙋🏻‍♀️ this last week I decided to start a new daily practice. I work from home & see this beautiful view outside our kitchen window daily, but so often it fades & I don’t really see it anymore. . . With this in mind & my desire to be more aware & intentional this year I decided I want to try & document the view every day. . . It’s only been three days, but I’m loving the freedom to just paint. To explore & be in the moment. To recognize how my mood and the weather outside translate to different colors and textures on the page. . . I’ll be sharing some of the process videos in my Instagram stories (you can watch some of day 2 & 3 right now) I hope you enjoy coming along for some of these days of learning 🎨
A closer view of this arrangement from the weekend with Fritillaria, Muscari, Crocus and Hellebore. Trying to move away from laying flowers flat so many times for photos, although I’m making the arranging up as I go along 💕😬 #paperflowers . . #DSfloral #craftsposure #makersgonnamake #abmcrafty #thatsdarling #choosejoy #upliftandinspire #artforyoureveryday #makeyousmilestyle #colorgram #inspiredbypetals #pursuepretty #creativelifehappylife #marthastewartcrafts #livethelittlethings #papercraft #paperart #blooooms #crafts #craftsmanship #botanicalart #botanicalartist

The sculptural elements of these paintings become reimagined with every new perspective.

This little office nook was once apart of our retail shop...before that an office space that belonged to @vanessaholliday who would become my work wife. Before that it was filled with antique treasures when it was Tongue & Groove, before that filled with art pieces by a local artist...and about a thousand lives before that ✨ This little nook by this window one block from PCH has been here for more years that I will possibly see. That’s so special & magical to me.
CONFESSION: My name is Josiane and I am not as good as I wish on 2 wheels ________in my defense, I had this episode a while ago. It has to do with myself losing my balance and "kissing" the floor big time 🤕😬💨. Urg! I still remember the shades of purple in my body 😨😵😱!! Since then I kinda avoid riding one this little fella but this' the year to overcome my fears and get back on track again🚵 . • • • • • #urban_exploration #solobikeparking #citygram #letsdoit #superacao #tampariders #goalkeeperlife #urbanexploration #bicyclelife #bicycleporn #bicyclette #instacycle #cyclechic #dsart #picame #artforyoureveryday #interiordesign #tampabay #california #prettythings #designyourmind  #designyourlife #homestyling #homedecor #instainteriors #dontquityourdaydream #boldbraveyou #tnchustler #handsandhustle #villagesociety
Good morning! We started our first FLASH SALE over on Stories last night! We have just a few (or less!) left of each piece. Go watch! It’s the only chance to get some of our favorite things at crazy good prices 😊
#21daysinmyartworld today I remember my smallest painting from many years ago. It was of my granddaughter @coconuts0704 when she was little. It was about 1inch (2cms) I think. Sadly I loaned it for a dollhouse maker to display at an exhibition and it was never returned 🙁 So this very poor image that I found on my blog is all I have left http://indigoblah.blogspot.com
Today for #21daysinmyartworld , the prompt is Smallest Painting! Technically this isn't my actual smallest ever, which was about an inch by two inches and sold years ago, but it's about as small as I go these days. It's 15x15x4cm. I find working small much harder than working large - I like to work from the shoulder rather than the wrist! But it's a good challenge and teaches me about composition and editing. Looking forward to seeing lots of tiny paintings in the feed today. :)
A dear sweet friend of mine sent me this...it couldn’t have been better timing. If you have a nagging feeling to share with someone something uplifting or of the heart...do it. For me this moment showed me the power of prayer because I had said a prayer about an hour before she messaged me with some words that matched exactly what my prayer had involved and then she sent me this little saying too...GO WITH BOLD UNBRIDLED COURAGE. Love it ta bits!! 💞

I have the happiest and funniest memories in that uniform :) ~~~ Hi to all my batchmates! I miss you all. I feel so happy seeing your smiling faces (and wedding photos) on instagram. 10 years this year!
Here's another one from my #oddjobseries cataloguing the ways I fund my art-making... like covering Versace furniture in pepperoni pizza and using my ninja skills to keep the grease off the upholstery. These are things I stress out about at my day job. #marketableskills #sketchbook #artforyoureveryday #versacepizza #chartpak

“A creative life is an amplified life. It’s a bigger life, a happier life, an expanded life, and a heck of a lot more interesting life. Living in this manner—continually and stubbornly bringing forth the jewels that are hidden within you—is a fine art in and of itself.” - ✨ Big Magic ✨ {SO excited about this new monochromatic series I’m creating! Check out more sneak peeks in my story and tell me what you think!}
Love the smell of this coconut flowers candle by @fwlsoycandles . If only we had smellavision. And I’m loving all things Amber glass at the moment too!

I’ve been reading @brenebrown ‘s book “Braving The Wilderness “ to start my year and there have been so many beautiful insights and realizations for me. One of my favorites being this thought about art: (which isn’t what the book is about, Brene just happens to write some of the most beautiful words I have ever heard about the power of art!) • • • “ART HAS THE POWER TO RENDER SORROWFUL BEAUTIFUL, MAKE LONELINESS A SHARED EXPERIENCE, AND TRANSFORM DESPAIR INTO HOPE... ALL ART GIVES PAIN (and I would add in joy if I may be so bold) AND OUR MOST WRENCHING EMOTIONS VOICE, LANGUAGE, AND FORM, SO IT CAN BE RECOGNIZED AND SHARED... THE MAGIC OF ALL ART [ is] THE ABILITY TO BOTH CAPTURE OUR PAIN AND DELIVER US FROM IT FROM THE SAME TIME. WHEN WE HEAR SOMEONE ELSE SING ABOUT THE JAGGED EDGES OF HEARTACHE OF THE UNSPEAKABLE NATURE OF GRIEF, WE IMMEDIATELY KNOW WE’RE NOT THE ONLY ONES IN PAIN. THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF ART IS IN THIS SHARING... ITS THE SHARING OF ART THE WHISPERS ‘YOU’RE NOT ALONE.’” • • • I haven’t quite felt up to making art yet this year, soon I hope 🤞🏼. In the mean time I’m collecting ideas, palettes, inspiration, and experiences, hoping to make something that helps someone feel “you’re not alone.”
My @novamercury piece looking lovely with a little sunset 🌈🌃
How do I name my pieces? Short answer...I don’t. But, I’ve thought a lot about this and even posted about it recently. Some pieces definitely evoke a feeling and are deserving of a descriptive title. Others, not so much. 🤷🏼‍♀️The quest continues. .

Still working on simplifying and organizing things around here. For me it’s all about finding that balance between clutter and minimalism. I do like pretty yet simple things, so I’m working on switching things in/out so that I can enjoy things in phases. . . . . #allispretty #entrywaydecor #minimal #allmodern #hobbylobby #magnoliamarket #targetstyle #tjmaxxfinds #consoletable #simplestyle #blackandwhite #blackandwhitelove #blackandwhiteinteriors #blackwhite #myblackandwhitehome #monochromatic #andywarholart #marbletable #artforyoureveryday #untoldvisuals #instalove #neutraldecor #neutral #ambularinteriorsaintgotnothingonme #designsponge #lonnymag #midcenturymodern #midmod
MAKER HIGHLIGHT ✨: Meet Casey & Gina Parlette of @parletteijewelry who are joining us this Saturday for our Pop Up Market! 🗓 • • Casey, an amazing sculptor {@caseyparlettesculpture } was seeking a way to create an affordable way for people to own his art and was inspired by his adventures in the Amazon, where he lived for a year. It’s there that he came across a previously unknown colorful little fish that was eventually scientifically named “rivulus parlettei” (one letter off from his last name!) and would become the surname for his jewelry line, Parlettei Jewelry 🐠 • Each piece is shaped, hammered and heated to turn a piece of titanium into an iridescent shell 🐚 • This eventually grew into a myriad of different designs and colors.  Each new design holds a feeling of discovery as well as an appreciation for the ocean, mountains, and natural world surrounding us ✨ • Join us this Saturday in #lagunabeach and meet & shop from this dynamic creative duo! SPOILER ALERT: I see a @jonathanseagul + @caseyparlettesculpture collaboration in the future, just sayin! 😉 #connector 💥
#TodayGoodThings ✨⛅✨🌿✨💛
This is what a work in progress looks like...very haphazard
Finally the easel and paints are back out and the inspiration is back. I spent most afternoon painting this with Fig, cuddling and feeding the baby and making tiny steps towards minimising the house. 😄 Also I had some exciting post arrive today. Our first lot of cloth nappies. We tried in the past but didn't get on very well with them but circumstances are different now and this year I aim to make a conscious effort to reduce our waste. I'll let you know I get on :) #artistmeetsmother
@larartstudio has been one of my favorite artists for years. Much to my surprise, she was on the same color wavelength as I was when I created #cccpalette33 , Under One Sky, and happened to be working on this gorgeous and powerful painting. Go check out her feed, I'm sure you'll be as impressed as I am with her mega talent. 😀
