The Postcard Project

I’m heading overseas this week – which sounds just incredible because this trip has been 3.5 years in the making (and saving!). One of my dearest friends is German so we’re heading to Germany for a couple of weeks to celebrate her 50th birthday, and then, because I’m SO CLOSE, I have a week to explore Paris. Crossing fingers and toes that the weather plays nice in the days and weeks to come.

I plan to do a lot of sketching and painting, which is something that’s more possible when travelling with grown ups rather than children, I find, so whether the weather is wet or dry I’m sure my ‘artist’s eye’ will always find something wonderful to notice and draw.

When I first planned the trip, I had a ‘real job’ and this was my side hustle. Of course, now, things have changed in wonderful ways, but I need to be creative with paying the bills while I’m away (my husband will be being creative with the school run while I’m away, that’s for sure!) so I thought up ‘The Postcard Project’… mainly because it’s been AGES since I received a postcard in the mail and gee it’d be lovely.

So if you’d like that smiley feeling, take a look at the info here and think about those 3, 5, 6 or 10 happy trips to the letterbox you have coming up over the coming weeks, building a collection of beautiful prints for your wall (or the fridge!).

You can join up for the project any time while I’m away. I have my lovely sister on the ground here at home helping with the logistics and adding addresses, so all will be well.

Thanks so much!

About Anna Battle

I’m an artist, guide, mother and a very handy Art Friend! 

My life’s mission is to share the joy of drawing and painting.

In 2011 I started offering in-studio guided Paint Alongs, and my first online course, 15 Flowers, went live in 2015.

In 2016 my book, Painting Party, was published (it’s still available on Amazon).

I now offer online Paint Alongs and workshops so that you can reconnect to the creativity inside you. Gift yourself the time to paint, and the guidance you need to improve your skills and your confidence. 

I invite you to join me and see the world through the eyes of an artist!

If not now, when?
