Painting Prompts For Summer When You Have 10 Minutes!

Painting Topic Ideas...

If you've enjoyed this post, I'd be thrilled if you pinned it - just click the image.

I hope you're enjoying this new month; in fact, at this exact moment, I'm actually typing this in our garden - yay!  Today I started my 30 days of prompts for my gentle art challenge and thought perhaps you'd also enjoy some flexible painting prompts that will only take 10 minutes (or longer if you wish) to complete.  

I'm all for creating whenever I can and sometimes 10 mins is all I've got and so it's helpful to have what I'm going to paint already taken care of - hint, look below for the prompts.  

The Anglo-Saxons called June “sera monath” (dry month).

You may have school aged children who are home for the school holidays already (hello, US friends) or perhaps little ones who like to paint with Mum regularly.  I know when our boys were a little younger, I really enjoyed looking at the Artful Parent and the wonderful resources there.  

I find painting quickly and without too much expectation helps shake my 'real' artwork up and helps me keep nimble; on my toes.

So whether you're joining in with the challenge (please use #createjoyfuljune2018 so we can find each other), or not, I hope you might try some of the Joyful June prompts and see where they take you and please consider popping by Instagram where you can see how the prompts are unfolding for me and I can for you... :)

Until next time...

Announcing: Create Joyful June 2018 & Ways For You To Join In


A gentle and global art/creative challenge for ALL - starting 1st June!

I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.
— L M Montgomery

June is fast approaching and I'm excited about my first global community 'challenge' called Create Joyful June 2018!  You can read more about it here.

It's a gentle art/creativity 'challenge' to signify the half point of the year - it's about celebrating the year so far and what is still to come...  It's an invite to pause and well, create! 

You can delve in as much or as little as you'd like.  However you wish to respond to the prompts (ie. paint, write, draw, stitch, or photography etc) is up to you; just take a photo every day, or just the weekend (or not) and then share your photos to the Facebook Group, Instagram or, add your blog to the blog roll
