Samantha Villenave1,063,457+Art+Talk #16, an interview with +Kurt Ankeny, hosted by myself and +Lena Levin .I asked Kurt for a bio. What he gave me are these beautiful words."I like to describe myself as an autodidact, but that's not really true at all. If anything, I'm a bibliodidact. Some of the works most important to my formation were How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way by Stan Lee and John Buscema and Anatomy Lessons from the Great Masters by Robert Beverly Hale and Terence Coyle. Those two were my lifeline for many critical years of development. In fact, I had given away my copy of Anatomy Lessons,  when I started recognizing images from it in the paintings I was looking at. I hadn't realized how deeply those images penetrated. So I had to buy myself a replacement copy.Here's a problem I have: all writing about art tends to circumvent the art itself. I'm not saying one shouldn't write about art, but it's deceptive to cement into prose a reaction to a piece that depends wholly on the time, circumstances, education, experience, and readiness of the individual viewer looking at it and reacting or responding. So, what you have a is a snapshot of a very, very narrow point where two individuals connected for a moment in time.So those qualms aside, I'm a relatively new painter. I've only been painting for about seven years. Four of them what I would consider "full-time". Painting, as most of us who practice with any determination and ambition know, is a very slow burn. Cy Twombly told Jenny Saville to try and remain ignored for as long as possible. And that is good advice as long as one can manage it. Because painting, especially since the modernist movement, is a vast ocean of possibilities and it takes many canvases to get your bearings.I guess that's my long-winded way of saying that I really don't know what I'm doing yet. I know, I know. One isn't supposed to undercut one's brand and reputation with such nonsense and honesty. "I don't know what I'm doing" does not mean "I don't know where I'm going." I do have plans, I have grand ideas and ambitions. It's just that there's a lot of white space on the map between where I stand now and Mount Accomplishment. I think that the fissure between abstraction and figuration is an obvious point of interest. Today's painters are swarming on that likeArt+Talk interview with painter Kurt Ankeny2012-11-04 20:00:0022

Dustin W. Stout26,662The Most Creative and Inspiring People on Google+As the first of my #circlesplosion  shares, this crowd-curated circle is comprised of those people who have been personally endorsed as some of the most creative and inspiring people on Google+.These folks are artists, designers, photographers, crafters, painters, musicians, videographers, marketers, and all around creators of things here on Google+.If you're a creator of things and want to connect with more people who create and inspire, add this circle.  Keep watch of the people in this stream and connect with the people you resonate with. About #circlesplosionAs I discussed in my introduction to #circlesplosion  (here - dustn.tv/circlesplosion/) managing and curating your circles will ultimately give you the greatest experience here on Google+. In an effort to connect people with passion, with other people with those same passions, I have resolved to share these crowd-curated circles with the world. I hope this group gives you as much value as it has me! Have a great monday everyone!  #creativity   #inspiration   #sharedcircles  2013-11-11 19:47:102367640123

Meirav M.7,705Meirav's 42some people have been sharing circles of 100, but me, I like smaller numbers. and seriously, as someone who has under 200 people circled in total, picking 100 would be way over the top. so I went for the obvious number of 42 :)These are not my top favourite 42 or my most relevant according to some algorithm or anything of the sort. And I will not tell you that they are the most wonderful people on earth, the creme de la creme of plusland, the greatest engagers or influencers or whatever managementspeak term is the word du jour. I'll be honest with you, as I tend to be when I'm not making up stories about penguins and stuff, and tell you the truth:These are all people I have had in my circles for a while and I like having them in my circles. They've grown on me. They've become part of my pluslife. I can't know if you'll also enjoy having them in your circles, because I'm not you and you're not me, we have different interests and different preferences and just as you might prefer a different ice cream flavour (I'm a Ben & Jerry's cookie dough gal) you are likely to find different people interesting or fun - but here's a circle of 42 people for you to try out if you would like to, and if you find that some of them are not quite your scene then you can always uncircle them. There's no "till death us do part" in plusland :)and no, you absolutely don't have to add them. It's just in case you are looking for more people to populate your stream.You are, in any case, welcome to cookies from the penguin's self-replenishing jar. We will always have cookies. #SharedCircles  2013-08-10 00:32:3242615
Mz Maau10,204I rarely share circles, and I regret to inform, this is not the promised #CircleDirk , rather, it's a circle I've been semi-maintaining since last spring, when it was created for +Pierce Arner to jump-start his Plus experience.Today, I'm resharing the current version on behalf of +Søren Dalsgaard Brath, who, like Pierce, is looking for new content for his stream.I figure he and I probably have a chunk of overlap, so I've added a few extras he might not yet know about.Some notes about the curation of this circle:I've tried to set aside those who have not posted recently, and I've tried to only include those who post publicly, or to extended circles.  I may have missed a few, and if you're in this circle and would like to be permanently removed, please let me know.This is not the final version, as I'm not sure such a thing is possible.This circle DOES come with a warning:You will, most likely, NOT enjoy everyone in this circle.  I, like many, have eclectic tastes, and I'm still a bit gun-shy after seeing some of the explosions from last year's crossing of the streams, so PLEASE, edit this circle to your liking with that in mind.If I ping you, you're in the circle.  There is no expectation or requirement to add this circle, it's merely a courtesy ping.  Again, if you would like to be removed from any future circle shares, please let me know.And yes, I promise, I'm still working on the #CircleDirk .Also note:  This is NOT an indication of who I like best, though some are included in this circle.  It is simply meant to be a sample of the diversity I follow.#PinkAndFluffyPersonsOfQuestionableRepute2013-06-22 16:38:09164143576

Frank Gainsford1,991 To help you decide if and whom you would like to include in your own stream, I’m adding some comments about these great people Warning: this contains information about each individual in the handpicked circle, so it’s long! ;-)Susanne Ramharter took the time to list everybody and explain their place in her circle.  this circle was orignaly shared by  +Susanne Ramharter and passed along by +Mark Traphagen  I added myself and shared again with you.  I blog about SEO  and  FUFISM at http://4ubrand.blogspot.combelow is Susanne's explanation of her circle to put you in the picture of who is in this shared  circle and why...My Google+ Mentors - people who are knowledgeable about Google+ and not only post great tips, but are always happy to engage and help out:++Denis Labelle  - Denis is a charming gentleman from Canada, who shares news, tips and helpful information about #Google +, #Technology and #Culture .+Euro Maestro - Euro Maestro is one of my ‘oldest’ companions here on Google+ and is passionate about Technology as well as social causes, which makes him especially important to me.+Jaana Nyström - Jaana is another one of the first people I met here, she is a wonderful, warm person who has done incredible work to help promote #Google + and its users and is not afraid to post the occasional cat photo - huzzah!+John Rakestraw -  John hosts hangouts on air to discuss various topics, many to do with the ‘human element’ of social media. He is a wonderful host and is kind enough to invite me to many of his #HOA .+Lee Smallwood - In addition to being a warm, yet also cool guy, Lee is editor of +imassera and the driving force behind +NOD3x, an excellent source of information about Google+ activities+Mark Traphagen - Mark impresses with his in-depth knowledge of marketing, social media and willingness to share it in a kind and friendly manner.+martin shervington - After much banter on posts and comments, Martin lured me into one of his hangouts about 18 months ago and has been a never ending source of information (do check out his videos!) , help, fun, and intriguing conversation ever since.+Ronnie Bincer - speaking of videos, Ronnie is my absolute ‘go-to’ guy when I need information or help with #video , #hangouts or #communities .+Thomas Morffew - Thomas is another great source of information about Technology and Google+ while lightening his stream with amusing lighter pieces to brighten the day.My fellow #Art Lovers and Artists:+Abigail Markov, +Lena Levin, +Marie Hélène Visconti, and +Marilyn Fenn are four intelligent, fantastic women, all artist in their own rights, who won’t spam your stream with their work, but provide regular information, stories, and inspiration about art and artists.2013-06-02 14:35:0551628

So, I broke my elbow, and flipped the broken off bit upside down in place.

Surgery is being discussed.

Thank heaven for community hospitals, and low income assistance, because i don't have health insurance, and can't afford it, either. (Fuck Florida and Dick Scott refusing federal ACA funding. :sigh:)

Bit more work on this piece before I'm happy with it. The chain needs another round of drawing, and some tumbling. I'll be tightening up the wrapping around the stone after that.

What do you think?

Sirius. Tiny German Shepherd mutt. The smallest of our pack.

These photos were supposed to go with the earlier post, but didn't stick.

Ps: Oh, btw, we rescued another dog this week from the county shelter.

We now share our home with three rescues. Sirius, Kiva, a wacky boxer mix, and Chuck, a grumpy Australian Shepherd.

I've been sketching out ideas for designs all day. Five potentials down for a trial run in polymer clay, and hopefully once the business budget permits, silver and enamel versions later down the line. Channeling the art deco era something fierce in designs lately.

(Still unable to do much more than sketch. No strength in my left arm and hand after breaking the elbow, though I'm working on gaining it back.)

Starting work on some new hair stick designs, using one of my own sticks as a template.

(Today is a chemo day for Steve, so we're back at the hospital for a few hours. Once a week for a while.)

These new hair sticks will likely be one of a kind, so if hair sticks are something you are interested in, go hop on the VIP list. They get first dibs on new pieces!

Less than thrilled with how weak I feel right now.

I can't even make coffee without hurting. Typing is slow, one handed, and on my phone only, since sitting at the desk results in nausea. Yay for drawing.

I can handle the pain with no meds now, but the rest of me feels awful as well. Bah!

I AM glad my elbow is fixed, but this recovery thing feels like it's taking forever.

(This is compounded by the whole my business doesn't run without me, and if my business doesn't run, I don't get a paycheck thing, yanno?)

Ok. Back to being positive. Had to get that out. <3

Setting up to make a delicate fine silver chain for these lavender pearls. You can see a 'rough draft' of the link size in the center of the photo - about 1/8 of an inch.

I can't do much with a broken elbow, but I'm still doing what I can!

Home from the hospital, one surgery and two metal pins in my left elbow later.

The pain meds have me fairly well knocked out, which is a good thing. I'm in a LOT of pain!

I'll be back as soon as I can.

Just talked to the Surgeon.

Looking at this afternoon for surgery.

I broke a big part of the joint, and they aren't fully sure the best way to fix it, from just looking at x-rays and CT scans. One of two options likely. Once is screws, one is plate.

I probably will never regain full range of motion in that joint - their goal is a functional range of motion.

I still have fine motor skills, so work is possible, and hey, at least it's my left arm, not my right (dominant) arm!

I have a temp cast on, and am waiting for a spot in line to upen up.

No eating or drinking until surgery. Broken Bone weight loss plan!

Being admitted to the hospital; surgery is being scheduled.

I broke my elbow quite thoroughly, it seems. Glad no pins are needed, but we haven't talked about the actual surgery yet, so I'm not sure on that.

Today was a breaking the limits kind of day.

Figured out how to add half an inch of length to one of my double chains, and have the addition will not show as added after. 

No biggie, right?

I can add it to the MIDDLE of a FINISHED chain. As in, after drawing, after end caps and soldering of the caps and end links, and after finishing.

 I have to cut and remove two links, add in new links until just short of final length needed, weave in two OPEN links in the chain link pattern, fuse the open links, and then shape the added links individually, draw the new section of chain,  and finish the added section.

Seeing as how each link of these chains is fused shut before the chain is started, I'm rather proud of pulling this off.

I'm going to go finish working on a single loop chain, and make a few pairs of Orbits that I have orders for. Just finished sealing the copper pieces for those, so they can be finished now.

We don't waste much around here; even junk mail has a use - it gets shredded and used as worm farm bedding. (Which eventually goes out into the garden as fertilizer.)

The bananas (and more like them ) up there are getting peeled, bagged, and frozen by Steve next. I've been tasked with organizing the chest freezer and dating all the bags with a sharpie that we packed this week.

Banana peels go into the worm bins, in top of the paper.

Nearly perfect onion rings.

Steve thought to cut with the meat slicer, and damn, it works well.

Today we're cutting almost 4/5 of a bushel of sweet Spanish onions. The meat slicer is getting some use today. I wish I could find my scuba mask. Even cold, these are juicy onions.

(When 50lbs of onions is $14 and you have a chest freezer, and your family eats a lot of onions - you buy 50lbs of onions and freeze them.)

These are some monster onions.

Just came back in from finishing four chains, including the final bits on the piece shown below.

Spent some of that time thinking about what goes into running this business. About how I'm almost every single cog in the machine, from CEO to assembly line grunt. I'm design and direction. Thank heaven for Steve, who handles shipping and records.

This business takes up every bit of processing power I have that does not go to Steve or my kids. It probably makes me seem REALLY boring to people who have actual hobbies and go out and Do Things. People who read books that are on subjects other than business.

It's my livelihood. I can't pay bills without it. It's also a positive influence in my life. Instead of feeling like a grunt in someone else's machine, I'm learning new skills, new information, and growing, and there really isn't a better source of confidence... more »

Today i want to try something a little different in between the portrait paintings ... I want to take requests from everyone and try to paint them. They'll all be 4" x6" and a mix of media, typically watercolors or acrylics and pen. Then when it's done I'm going to post them for auction. So if you have ever wanted to see my take on a fictional character, or had a cool idea for an image, post it below and I'll try to get it painted today. Cheers!

Cutting pork tenderloin with one of the knives @apronless gave me years ago.

LOIKE BUTTAH.

We just finished cutting & packing 5lbs of green beans, 6lbs of broccoli, 10lbs of ground beef, and 50lbs of russet potatoes into meal size bags. (Yes, 50 lbs.)

They are all headed into the freezer. (No, we did not blanch them. We have done it before, and prefer the taste of not blanched. Weird, I know. )

The 50lbs of onions and box of roma tomatoes will have to wait until later this week. Steve has chemo appointments tomorrow at 7am-ish, and it's already 11pm.

Bright side: no more major grocery shopping for two-three months. Flour, rice, dairy, all set.

Just send me a message or comment on this post.

The details

For how long? Six months, beginning February 1st

How often will we meet? We'll come together via video call or phone twice a month for 75 minute calls.

What is the cost? I'm just beginning to test the waters, so the cost (unless you receive the give-away) is only $25 per month for six months.

Let me know if you have any questions. Hope you'll come along on this new adventure with me!___

Ran out of O2 on the very last hot step of a major chain order.

:headbench:

Guess we're making a run to the welding supply place first thing tomorrow morning.

File under "Things I should have thought of before": Mark and drill silver while still flat, instead of drilling endcaps AFTER soldering.

SO MUCH EASIER.

Now let's hope the holes don't cause problems fusing and soldering.

I'm silly-proud of this little page. 

I really like the idea of a VIP program over just a newsletter. I like spoiling people way more than I like marketing to people. Marketing emails are like diet ice cream to the indie ice cream deliciousness I want this VIP program to be.

Yes, it's still a newsletter list. But it's such a great alternative to social media as a way of talking directly with people who said they want to be treated like VIPs. It's deeper than a fly by night kind of posting on social media. (I'll still post, of course, but this lets me go a bit more in depth with people. :D )

Clasps and terminations and finishing work, and SO CLOSE TO DONE. :D

The holidays (and a rough bout of mean winter blues) have me behind where I wanted to be, but still more or less on time.

If there is one thing I learned from tech it's that you always estimate it will take you much longer than you think it will to finish something. You stand a better chance of being on time with your sanity intact that way!

What's your best life lesson from one field that applies somewhere else?

Tonight Sirius worked out how to turn the bag of saved shredded paper stored next to my desk into a dog pillow for naps.

He snores, too.

Kiva and Sirius just played together for the first time. It started with Steve and I trying to play with Sirius, but he still plays like a puppy - nipping and biting. 

So I called Kiva over (because Sirius picked up "Lay Down!" watching Kiva lay down and roll over for a treat) and I started playing with her. She has a few hand signals and a posture that she knows means PLAY TIME!

It didn't take long of Kiva and I playing before Sirius jumped in, trying to join in the fun. Kiva almost immediately switched from playing with me to teaching Sirius how to play. She'd show him something, run ahead, pause, wait for him to copy or follow, run a bit, and repeat. A few minutes of this and Sirius had picked up the basics, and caught on to chase-catch-wrestle-run.

It wasn't long after that before they were tearing around the house, and Sirius was cutting corners... more »

It wasn't long after that before they were tearing around the house, and Sirius was cutting corners or running in a different direction around furniture to catch up with Kiva. 

Steve and I just stood out of the way, me up on the couch, Steve on the stairs. 

They are both sprawled all over the floor sleeping now. ___

It's been one of these weeks, but I'm dragging myself out of it, slowly but surely. Steve has to restart chemo next week, too. Oy. But, yay for loving dogs and sweet friends.

Singles and doubles heading into the tumbler.

Gotta make the ends for them next.

Uuuugh. I love chain, but end caps are the hard part for me!

Bit more work on this piece before I'm happy with it. The chain needs another round of drawing, and some tumbling. I'll be tightening up the wrapping around the stone after that.

What do you think?

Way better than invisible ink or self-destructing messages. :D

University teamed up to create electronics that are biodegradable. The combination of material science, technology and innovation led to transient electronics. 

Transient electronics is a field of technology that uses dissolvable materials to create electronics that can exist for seconds to years before dissolving into safe materials in water. This technology currently uses circuits made of silicon wafers that are sliced into extremely thin slices. The slices are thin enough that they will dissolve when exposed to water. The conductive parts of the circuit are made of magnesium, tungsten, and zinc, materials that are also water soluble. The electronic is covered by soluble polymers such as cellulose. The different types of covers can be chosen to provide different amounts of time before dissolving. When exposed to water they will dissolve into nothing but biological materials.

This use of biodegradable electronics will be especially beneficial in the medical field. Devices can be implanted and will dissolve on their own without the need of additional surgery to remove the device. Providing both a solution to perennial discard and the removal of medical devices, this field of technology will bring about a new generation of technology--but not yet, maybe once the patents expire. ___Way better than invisible ink or self-destructing messages. :D

Last chance to snag this bracelet! There is only one left, and then the design is being retired.

Grab it, quick!

Sirius. Tiny German Shepherd mutt. The smallest of our pack.

These photos were supposed to go with the earlier post, but didn't stick.

Ps: Oh, btw, we rescued another dog this week from the county shelter.

We now share our home with three rescues. Sirius, Kiva, a wacky boxer mix, and Chuck, a grumpy Australian Shepherd.
