James Day14,291You're invited to participate in a new G+ #art event called Google First Friday ~  #GoogleFirstFriday .  As with most new things Google First Friday will have humble beginnings. Given time though it will grow to be a great event for artists and art enthusiasts alike, to share the newest works being added to the art world each day. This is an event by and for artists. There's no need to starve or struggle if we all come together in support of each other. Hopefully over time that's what this event will become, a place not only to share your work but to connect with other creatives and to find patrons who love your art.  If you have questions, please check out the monthly art event #TwitterFirstFriday  which I've been curating since early 2014 https://twitter.com/hashtag/TwitterFirstFriday?src=hash. Over the past year it's turned into a sizable art event on Twitter. Please set your calendar for Friday June 5th which will be the first of many  #GoogleFirstFriday  art events to come! Thank you for reading and sharing, James DayGOOGLE FIRST FRIDAY2015-07-03 22:00:00204

Tim Utzig15,271Thought it might be fun to post a pic of your country, city or state this week, now through Wednesday - as many or as few as you'd like. Just thought it would be a fun way to share a little bit about your country, experiences and some of your favorite destinations and maybe meet a new person. Just take a pic and post it here. Open to invite friends as well.  #YourFavoritePlace  Your Favorite Place2012-11-17 18:00:00189

5 ½ inches x 7¼ inches surface
Acrylic on leaf matter & sculpted paper embedded in plaster
Artwork completed on: 08-21-2013

“Embedded where striations go—a leaf kite with a tail that folds. On the turquoise grain, the wait for wind—across the tethered plane, the dance begins. Into the shadow, ancient, old—into the light, the shape that told.”

“Deep in the sky of indigo blue—vines from the ground reach for the moon. Laced with the beams, the texture plays—the twisting stems that catch the rays. Out of the night into the light—sculpt the surface that finds the bright.”

Acrylic on sculpted paper embedded in sculpted plaster
Artwork completed on: 06-08-2011

“In the sovereign need to know—in the pleated plane that crawls—all your measures now unfold—emerging from the pale below. Could your inner being find—a place along the crease to climb—to tarry on these spoke-like rays—until the light absorbs your stay? Linger here and bide your time—trace your way along the lines—span the tactile need to feel—every wrinkle and ridge fulfilled.”

There is something extremely profound in this quote about the pursuit of art.

“The most respectable source of inspiration, the most acceptable starting-point for pictorial procedures is no longer the visual delight of an eye that participates in the life around it: it is, rather, the most private and uneasy seat of an individual’s disquiet.” ~ Patrick Heron

This “individual disquiet” is a private and unsettled inner urging that quietly taunts us. It is this private churning that foments the creative act. 

“The needs, desires, are all in flux—they change, they are packaged ‘torture deluxe.’ The hunger to change tedium’s reign—to leave it for a lesser pain. To take the dare, to reach for heights—to move toward unknown plights.” ~ Gari Hatch

Acrylic on cardboard
Artwork completed on: 05-13-2011

“Sweep the brush to form the curve—cup the color, watch it swerve. When you’re feeling really low—make it vivid, let it glow. Pull yourself through every stroke—abstract urgings will provoke. Dare to stream this inner need—on the canvas germinates the seed. In your vision see it grow—all the artist seeks to know. Images flourish in the swell—revel in the pigment’s tale.”

“Compose, segment, the fracture binds—the shapes tether the heels to hinds. Cradled in the depths of blue—the cells of color seek the move. They herd toward the ushered graze—into the wonder, the pigment maze. Governed by some inner will—abstraction contours the rhythm’s trill.”

Acrylic on cardstock
Artwork completed on: 11-06-2015

“In the pale above, in a different realm—what hovers in the atmosphere? On the down below, on the old terrain—what unhinged fray lifts away? Do we hover in window blue—a golden orb that holds the clue? Do we travel with swiveled pierce—across the phased, a swift descent? Otherness whispers here—transformation always near.”

Artwork completed on: 09-01-2015

“A gesture seeks to carry shape—the golden circle on the ray. Form guides the color’s move—it bids the graze on pewter’s hooves. Ancient music finds the bend—the soft diffusion moving in. Aten carried in the sweep—paint the light upon the peace.”

Acrylic on art board
Artwork completed on: 09-11-2007

“There is a slender place with narrow doors—on the other side are rooms with brilliant light. These places where colors rise and fall—the pigments wave and then they call. The undulating streams blur—and all the shapes begin to stir. They curve, they bend, they twist, they turn—and bring the things, we all have yearned. Beauty’s face in unknown forms—these shades and tints of swirling storms.”

“Against sienna—shapes can grow—organic shoots in color’s flow. A curve, an angle—then a fade—in the blur, transition’s wade. The flat, the soft—the upward lift—into our dreams, the glow that sifts. The aubade source dwells in the morn—a word, a music—the paint performs.”

If to lean, vein to wing—does this spot—let me breathe? All to know—all to say—brush to blue—seeks the way.” ~ Gari Hatch

We are like the scarred surface—reaching out from wordless plains. Works of creation, yet unfolding—eplore our valleys, each depth's refrain. Sculpt us like the painting's purpose—unlikely places where we can thrive.”

Acrylic on sculpted paper & wood embedded in sand & stone
Artwork completed on: 05-29-2008

“Stale are these graces, if they cannot forgive—those who mock and cannot live. For they need us to love them still—when they bring upon us their bitter will. For kindness batters the stubborn heart—sometimes, it heals the broken part. It is to see the Phoenix fly again—from fire and ash watch the bird ascend.”

Acrylic on sculpted paper embedded in sculpted plaster
Artwork completed on: 02-13-2010

“Serpentine, the striped band—lying in the pharaoh’s land. Twisted and coiled in some tomb—waiting for a hand to move. Black and gold, a royal sign—trapped within the cracks and sand. A piece that fell as the stone slammed shut—like an adder’s dance entwined and lost. Now, it rises from the dust—an artifact from a noble court.”

“At night along the fence line row—below the moon the thorn vine grows. The quills aglow, the slender spikes—its nettle way claims the dike. It guards the rail, it circles the post—a prick, a pierce, the blood, it boast. Upon His head, they formed a crown—a jagged ring as His head bowed down. A symbol of the Savior’s pain—his willingness to bear the stain.”

Artwork completed on: 05-01-2007

“A tapestry, where the fragments fly—across a rippled Mongolian sky. Pieces cut in random shapes—layered across the curving napes. Like musical notes on an invisible score—they lift themselves on a waking shore. A medieval fabric, ornate and old—the richest weave the king could hold. The painting bears the brush threads—red, gold and green in shining stead.”

“Lay the wrinkle, crush the fold—until the story can be told. On the surface lay the knife—scrape the plaster on with life. Find the crooks and the hidden place—make the painting find its face. Metallic pigment on the edge—watch it dance between the wedge. 
The draping plane, a crater storm—a sculpting earthquake has been born.”

Tenth Day / 01-12-2016: The work continues in a slow progression each day …

“The light in winter is most varied; there are days when it's clear and bright, carving the earth into light and shadow like a razor. Yet, at times, the light can be soft and quiet as a whisper, with color of the most intense chromatic variations anyone could ever need.” ~ Peter Fiore

"Roll away your stone I will roll away mine—together we can see what we will find …” ~ Mumford and Sons

“Of decadence, I had to part—of righteousness, the bite is smart. A no man’s land is where I dwell—not of heaven, not of hell. I live my life in shades of gray—but brush my paints in bright array. With drink and drug, I once buzzed high—now to books and art, I fly. For all my failures now I see—creativity can set you free.” ~ Gari Hatch

“At the edge of the crease where the high ridge goes—do you delve deep in the blue that knows? Can you graze the light on the forms beneath—on the plates that shift in the surface deep? Do rocks like stars glint the plane—do all the grains map the fractal train?”

"Within the singular dwells the plural." ~ Gari Hatch

“The good painter is always as much concerned with the “spaces between’ his represented objects as with the objects themselves. He is never concerned with the sculptural form of those objects considered in isolation. Thus, he is not concerned first and foremost with either a solid form or with the interval between two such forms. He is concerned with the total configuration of all his ingredients all the time. Emphasis is always evenly distributed. And this is true whatever the degree of abstraction or representation the good painter happens to employ.” ~ Patrick Heron

Linger here and bide your time—trace your way along the lines—span the tactile need to feel—every wrinkle and ridge fulfilled.”
