Something old, something new! This is a weekend of opposites. I have spent a lot of time over January and February embracing other artists and learning from them. This has meant some major changes to my usual way of doing things until I felt I’d wandered down such an interesting road that I’d actually lost my way. Realising this, I have given myself permission to return to what works for me best, like slipping on my favourite pair of slippers :) On the same day I have returned to my own journal style I have also stepped completely out of my comfort zone and worked with acrylic for the first time, and on canvas, for the first time. A day of comfort AND liberation = total artistic joy! #chasingthejoy #acrylicpouring #acrylicpourart #canvaspainting #trysomethingnew #tryingnewthings #doitfortheprocess #oldandnew #art #artistsoninstagram #artist #artsy #comfortzone #stepoutsideyourcomfortzone #artchallenge #returntolove #originalpainting #whatif #whatnext #pushyourself #pushyourlimits #loveart #makeamess #artplay
Lately I’ve been exploring ways to infuse my paintings with more personal marks. I’ve realised that circles and symbols associated with circles have been making an appearance in my artwork for a long time but thanks to some wonderful lessons by Danielle Donaldson I’m finally using them deliberately. Here I’ve tried to indicate my belief that roots go deep and everything is connected. #chasingthejoy #danielledonaldsoninspired #watercolour #watercolourpainting #art #artist #artistsoninstagram #artsy #doitfortheprocess #mixedmedia #penandwatercolor #plantroots #personalgrowth #loveartwork #loveart #artpractice #sketchbook #paintingoftheday #unique #funart
Cards are a Christmas tradition that, in a digital world, seems to be fading. But this year, triggered by a tragedy, I've decided to revive it as my tradition. I'm hand making and sending cards because I want those I love to know, not only am I thinking of them, but that they are worth the effort! ⁣ ⁣ #watercolour #watercolourpainting #chasingthejoy #passioncolorjoy #joyinthejourney #spreadjoy #joyjoy #artistsoninstagram #artsy #artwork #artis #art #artists #artoftheday #artlover #arttherapy #christmas #christmas2018 #christmasmood #christmascard #christmastree #joytotheworld #spreadthelove #lovefriends #merrychristmas #handmadecards #елочныеигрушки #giftcards #handmadegift #tellsomeone
How do you chase joy? Pye talks to the flowers in his garden. In my life I’ve come to realise how essential it is to chase joy everyday. Something as simple as walking in the garden and watching as each flower transforms from bud to bloom brings me joy! What is your simple joy? #appleandpye #flowers #garden #simplethings #joy #wateringcan #growing #greenthumb #illustration #simplepleasures #happiness #prettylittlething #happyplace #wellness #chasingthejoy #http ://chasingthejoy.etsy.com
