Re-inspired to pick up my paints after a #makingwinter talk with @silverpebble2 the other evening.  This is vibernum from the garden and it has an absolutely wonderful scent. It's a cold fresh day out there and I'm pondering getting wrapped up and heading down to clear the cobwebs at the beach later. What's everyone else up to?  #acreativepractice #sharinghappysquares
Sunlight on frosted grass - a sparkly start to a to and fro day.  #sharinghappysquares I've a few good things to share from the last couple of days, starting with a lovely evening spent with @silverpebble2 at one of her book events. I learnt to draw wreaths :) Also Thursday, took the younger two to see Lego Batman which was great fun.  Yesterday I managed perfect crackling on the roast pork and planned out batches of writing time for this week coming. And today I took the book and went to a cafe and restarted work on it, so feeling proud of myself for that.  How is your weekend treating you?  #fb #showup100 #acreativepractice
Studio walls. Some of the images I've been working with this week, preparing books for print and writing a new short story in image and text.

For the past week I have been settling into a month long artist residency in this shed/studio, invited by @sianbonnell for TRACE. Its great to work outside of home, surrounding myself in a contained space with work from the past 3 years and beginning to forge a path through it. I have almost no idea what the outcome of this time will be for the opening at the end, but as someone working with writing and photography in print and online, having the opportunity to play and experiment with form and materials in space is so good. . . . #traceisnotaplace #artistresidency #annataylorfortrace #writingprompts #poeticobjects #onmatter #fluidforms #experimental #backburnerjournal #writingthephotograph #amwriting #artistcommunity #creativecommunity #writingandphotography #artiststudio #selfpublishing #acreativepractice #studiospace #enrichmentofother
Little boxes of Christmas ornaments, all ready for delivery to @buryartshop
What I need, more than ever, is #acreativepractice to break me out of this autumn cycle downwards.  Day 1. The beach. A very quick sketch as I'd to be home in time for t'other half to take eldest to practice. Will fill in more colour after food.  #fb

Last night's #sktchyinspired portrait practice. I haven't got to drawing real things in #youwillbeabletodrawbytheendofthisbook but I did put some advice in practice, such as marks to anchor the edges. Still got my proportions slightly off but better than they have been.  Today holds lots of laundry, some shopping, girding of my loins (not lions auto-correct ) to start digging myself out of the pit of despair and overdue deadlines that I've somehow fallen into, again.  Mood: tired but determined. You?  #acreativepractice #smallmomentsofcalm #mymonthofsundays #todolist #fb #instaart #artistsonig #ourcreativeselves #creativityfound #makersgonnamake #portrait #learntodraw #learningallthetime
Friday night drawing practice. Bought myself a new practice book - 'you will be able to draw by the end of this book', by @brightondrawing Am planning on seeing how much of it I can work through over the next couple of weeks. Just done some continuous line drawing practice, which I really love.  #acreativepractice #ourcreativeselves #creativityfound #makersgonnamake #artistsonig #drawing #learntodraw #sketchbook
Spent yesterday evening listening to music with (notso) SmallTeen and experimenting with @derwentpencils graphitone. Think I'm going to be doing more of this.  #thirtygiftsofgratitude for quiet evenings and time with teen.  #acreativepractice #showup100 #sktchyinspired #instaartist #drawing #ourcreativeselves #creativityfound #makersgonnamake #artistsonig #derwentpencils #learntodraw #learningallthetime
For those (Mon)days when creative juice runs dry there are some great prompt books about. Smallest has Creative Scribbles from @parragonbooks in the background (picked up @theworksstores yesterday) and I'm pondering a Wreck the Journal page.

Dewdrops and sunlight. Got wet feet (turns out crocs aren't ideal for October mornings, who knew?) but enjoyed the picture session. (Yes, this is how I try to start each day, water, outdoors, creativity. And I absolutely class photography as creative although I didn't used to let myself, as it feels too easy in a way? That probably doesn't make a lot of sense. Maybe I'll do better after coffee.) #whpmyeveryday #acreativepractice #mymorningview #cornersofmygarden #aprettyishkindof_wilderness #smallmomentsofcalm #heiterautumn #thirtygiftsofgratitude #spreadnaturelove #mystoryoflight #tostandandstare #throughadifferenteye #seenotherwise #impressionsofautumn #sgiew_autumn #outdoorsandhappy #inspiredbyseasons_autumn with @mimosastreet
Went for a run - managed about 20 minutes. Which meant I was quite a long way from home so I walked back taking pictures and enjoying the day, the scenery, the birds... (you may have to squint to see them, next time I'll take the camera). Now I'm going to put the phone in the bedroom and make things and draw things and maybe catch up on some blogging and stare sadly at my manuscript and squeeze in some housework.  How is Saturday looking for you?  #whpmyeveryday #thirtygiftsofgratitude birdsong :) #mymorningview #running #acreativepractice #smallmomentsofcalm #mystoryoflight #cornersofmyworld #coastalview #shotonmobile #beheiter #outdoorsandhappy #astillmoment #spreadnaturelove #lovelydeadcrap #sgiew_autumn #impressionsofautumn #inspiredbyseasons_autumn #heiterautumn
Eleanor's hand. 〰  I mounted images on board so they could be freestanding within existing spaces - in the cellar and in my neighbour's garage. I like the idea that people could pick them up and hold them, or rearrange as they wished, possibly altering narrative or making new formal connections with their surroundings. . . . #backburner4 #fluidforms #writingprompts #formations #exxplorevision #writethephotograph #experimental #poeticobjects #backburnerjournal #artistcommunity #writingthephotograph #studiospace #lightdarkmatters #onmatter #enrichmentofother #selfpublishing #writingandphotography #acreativepractice 〰@eleanor_mulhearn
Took myself on a #whpseasons photowalk around a nearby town while (notso)SmallTeen was having a masterclass in recording music. Finished at a cafe which bizarrely had no cake (??) but excellent coffee, and wrote a whole two sentences of the book that is still lurking in the back of my head. Which is two sentences more than most days this week so yay for that.  #thirtygiftsofgratitude - having a morning to myself to wander, and a beautiful place to wander in :) #showup100 @journalofawriter #acreativepractice  #smallmomentsofcalm #heitermoments #impressionsofautumn #inspiredbyseasons_autumn #sgiew_autumn #cornersofmyworld #throughadifferenteye #seenotherwise #shotonmobile #mystoryoflight #sharingmyday #otherfolksflowers #outdoorsandhappy
