Samantha Villenave1,065,345+Art+Talk #17, an interview with +David Sandum, hosted by myself and +Max Rubenacker. Oh, and kids, I am really excited about this one. About David:David Sandum was born 1971 in Gothenburg Sweden. Today he resides in Moss Norway and has a studio at Gamle Pikeskolen (since 2003), where he also teaches several private students.David is self-taught, though he studied art history at the University of Utah. He see's himself mainly as a colorist - and expressionist. Feelings, energy, and emotions are very much key to his work. The people he paints are never real portraits, "but inner portraits." Scandinavian influences are Munch, Karsten, and Sparre. Other influences are The German Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) movement (1911-1914) spearheaded by Kandinsky, and continental masters such as Gaugain, Van Gogh, Bonnard and Matisse.A quote by Matisse sums it up well: "I do not literally paint that table, but the emotion it produces upon me."http://www.davidsandum.com/https://fr.twitter.com/DavidSandumArtAbout  #twitterartexhibit  :“Through art we can change the world.”* #Twitterartexhibit  utilizes social media and public engagement to generate income for charities and nonprofit organizations. In the past, #Twitterartexhibit has generated funds for children’s books at a local library and resources for a Women’s shelter.• Artists worldwide contribute a postcard-sized, handmade original artwork to the #Twitterartexhibit  • #Twitterartexhibit   organizes a local, physical showcasing of the art.• The public is invited to buy the art at an affordable, flat price. • 100% of proceeds go to the charity.• It provides artists with new avenues, audiences and benefactors, and appeals to art enthusiasts all over the world. • It’s fun!Art+Talk interview with painter and Founder of #twitterartexhibit, David Sandum2012-11-11 20:00:0029

Samantha Villenave1,065,345+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 20:00:0023

His works can be described as having healing effects by his unique and unmatched use of color, which brings greater meaning and understanding to his works. Every vibrant piece has a story attached to it. Chor Boogie’s colorful paintings are attracting A-list celebrities, art galleries and museums. Originally from San Diego, the artist known as Chor Boogie currently resides in San Francisco but is an internationally known artist and has traveled extensively to exhibit his work around the world.The intentions behind his art work are to create timeless dynamic moments of Imagination, Creativity, Originality, Meaning, Style, Self Expression, Audience, Taste, and the Visual Elements of Line, Light, Composition, Form, Space, and Color. It is derived from the colors of his soul. It is a therapeutic flow of colors, shapes, and movements combined in to one. A movement of images that has adapted to space giving it the significance of belonging to its surface, coming together as one and forming images of creation. Expressing realms of colors that give a healing sense and encourages you to wake up.“If you ever visited or live in the Bay Area, you’ve seen at least one of Chor Boogie’s striking murals. Boogie’s work ends up looking more like fine art, which is pretty impressive considering he paints solely in aerosol”…JUXTAPOZ“Internationally acclaimed virtuoso of spray-paint Chor Boogie presents his solo show: Romanticism, where imagination and emotion meet the healing power of color therapy. Having emerged, in part, from the world of “Graffiti Art” Chor profoundly expounds on the genre in style, technique, form, composition, and conceptual underpinnings, as he can no longer be simply categorized as such.

Christopher Lira0*The Dates are the Art submission time frame for this event. I will be updating the start date everyday till we reach the ending date for submissions which will be oct. 1st* _9/27/12 edit:_ *The deadline is getting closer!! remember to email your submissions to both kaosq3k@gmail.com and manda.r.lira@gmail.com oct 1st is a few days away :)* Hi everyone many people have been asking me what this book is all about. Well this book is about Hope, it's about Love and It's about Strength, it's about saying "Life is beautiful, Cancer can suck it!"  8 months ago the love of my life Gladis was diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer. When we broke the news to our kids @112903919681703164454 decided to create this art book "Art For The Heart" and asked artists on deviantart and the artists here on Google+ if they would help her by submitting pieces for this book so she can give it to her mom as a gift of Hope Strength Courage and Love. So between school, cross country and everything else in a teenage girls life she began working on this book collecting submissions, arranging the pages, adding memorable quotes from her mom, inspirational quotes and memories of things she loves about her mom.  This past week Wednesday Sept 12th after all the treatments (Hysterectomy, Lymph nodes removal, Chemo, external and internal radiation) Gladis's latest scan results came back. The results weren't what we had prayed for. This horrible disease has now spread to her lungs and possibly to her brain. My Gladis now has stage 4 cancer. This link here is Gladis's journey on whatnext.com http://www.whatnext.com/users/lirasgirl33  So getting back to Manda's art book Art For The Heart While Manda was editing this book this past week she came to me and told me she ran out of pages for the price range she was working in. So I told her just bump it up to the next price range which in turn opened up the book for 20 more pages till it bumps up in price again. This is when Manda and I came to you all here on Google+ again.  Here's the link to that original post https://plus.google.com/104857406109954440836/posts/bR1p4edhtdr after posting this @109602109099036550366 suggested I post this as an event so I took his wonderful advice and now here were are.  Since the original post I have 7 submissions already in my email! Thank you all that have already submitted!! Hopefully we get all 20 pages filled! and if by some chance we go over the 20 pages I will buy more pages or rearrange to book somehow to make everyone get their page. All art is beautiful. all will be accepted. The goal of this book is to bring a smile to Gladis's face and give her Hope and strength throughout this horrible journey she is on.  deadline for submissions is oct.1st. all submission can be emailed to kaosq3k@gmail.com or manda.r.lira@gmail.com You may also post them here in this event page as well. I think I covered everything if you still have any questions or any ideas suggestions I am open to anything and everytArt For The Heart2012-10-01 09:00:0045

Yifat Cohen69,855Have you met +Larry Fournillier yet?*I WILL BE SHARING THE HOA LINK HERE BEFORE THE EVENT STARTSHe's a computer science guy who lives in Trinidad and loves to cook. He started sharing pictures of his dishes on Google+ way back when...When he was asked to cook on Hangouts he decided to teach instead and the Learning How to Cook Caribbean with Larry Fournillier cook show was born.Google loved what he did and added him to their Hangout commercial and the SUL, but that's not really what's important to Larry.The fact that his show inspires others not only to cook Caribbean but also to paint (like +Paul Roustan who created the theme picture of this event - Splash of Flavor Body Paint http://youtu.be/eqp9FPiUJZk).Hangouts changed Larry's life, gave him purpose and meaning, and it even inspired him to create a woman only social site.HOW DID HE DO IT?Come meet one of the most easy-going and friendly SUL guy face to face and learn how it's all about the people you meet and your relationship with them.Finding Your Life Purpose Through Hangouts2012-08-09 18:00:0057

Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321234795

Help us get the word out!
Today's a really important day for us. We want LittleBigFund to blow people away when they hear about how much we raised this weekend. We rely on you guys for that! This whole process is all about you. Whatever sharing and hashtagging of #LittleBigFund  you can do (especially if you can't donate) will really pay off!

One of My Favorite Recent Paintings

I'm finally about to have some freedom from the overly-immersive projects of the past month or two.  SO looking forward to getting back in the studio.  In the meantime, I still love this one.

#FirstFridayArtWalk  

Practicing Forgiveness, nos. 7, 9-11, 13-16. [Bottom to top, right to left.]

It is a practice,  forgiveness. It's something I've had to bring myself back to, over and over, a mindful meditation on anger, hurt, confusion, fear, betrayal, on accepting the feelings but not becoming them, not being consumed by them, observing them and allowing myself to feel them, much like standing in front of art I love, or watching a movie. I feel it, accept it, and then let it end, move on to the next painting, the next feeling. I let it play, I immerse myself in it, but it does not consume me. I do not become the hurt or anger, but if I do get too close to that line, I try not to get angry with myself for that. 

Learned: The opposite of forgiveness is not hate, it is guilt.

Nothing gets me more than the raw emotion.

Haze.

Not sure on measurements, but do know that it will probably measure over 4ft tall once stretched and the top white is trimmed off. Not sure how much taller. 

Removal techniques. Paint was removed at the canvas layer at points, so some parts are just stained. 

Will get detail shots later.

Likely last painting session for a week.

Once this is dry, it gets rolled and stuck in a corner somewhere, with most of the rest of my work.___Nothing gets me more than the raw emotion.

#paintingoftheday  for the #firstfridayartwalk  

––
"Make Each Other Happy" by Robin Griggs Wood
––
Since Roger Ebert passed away, I thought I would include one of my favorite quotes from him. 'Kindness' covers all of my political beliefs. No need to spell them out. I believe that if, at the end, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn't always know this and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.
I particularly love that he points out, "to make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts." Struth!

So, you know, in Canada if you post anti-police photoss of street art on Instagram, you can face criminal charges?

Is it not completely ironic that Fuck The Police--N.W.A. is in my head after reading this article? (Listen at your own risk. No officers of the law were threatened/harmed in the embedding of this link, either.)

Sorry, I'm oversharing again. But seriously, read the fecking article!

Still life with the Divine Comedy. 12"×12", Oil on linen. 2013

New DPW release:
 http://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/121897

What this painting is about? Just that light without flames, the blaze without fire – that thing your inner world inevitably catches if and when you let great art really, genuinely touch you.

For some time afterwards, it's as though you carry the reflected light around; as though you can spread it further (and in all likelihood, that's true – you can).

Our aging civilization is so rich in pure, true, unmistakeable greatness; it would be inconceivable to be here, to be now, and not to let it all in, not to let it ignite you. So: eat your apple, have your drink, and do open that book!___ #paintingoftheday

Another month, another #FirstFridayArtWalk  . :)

We've been doing this since October, and I love seeing every month the artwork shared in the streams. We've even gotten a big push from Google and the +First Friday Art Walk was put on the suggested user list a couple of months ago... which means more eyes and exposure for the artists that are participating. 

Wanna know what it's about? Check out the details on the event below. 

The April #FirstFridayArtWalk  is here!

It is open to all. Whether you are an artist, or simply an art lover, there is a way for each and every one of us, who wishes to, to participate. 

The April First Friday Art Walk will be held on Friday, April 5, 2013. 

San Francisco (PDT):
From 6 a.m. Friday, April 5 to 12 a.m. Saturday, April 6.
New York (EDT):
From 9 a.m. April 5 to 3 a.m. Saturday, April 6.
Paris (CET):
From 2 p.m. Friday, April 5 to 9 a.m. Saturday, April 6.

See starting and end times for your local time zone here: http://mytimeconverter.com/ 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How it works: 

Artists, simply share work of your own, a painting, a drawing, a sculpture, an illustration, and add the hashtag #FirstFridayArtWalk . The Art Walk is open to non-photographic work, in traditional, and digital media.

Art lovers and artists alike are welcome to reshare the work of other artists with the     #FirstFridayArtWalk  hashtag as well. This way, we should be able to get a flurry of art circulating in everyone's stream. 

Also, please circle +First Friday Art Walk  so that we will be able to reshare the work that you have hashtagged   #FirstFridayArtWalk , from the page. 
Thanks, and we look forward to seeing your work! Please feel free to invite artists and others that you feel may be interested in this event. :)

Creatively, 
+Lena Levin and +Samantha Villenave ___Another month, another #FirstFridayArtWalk  . :)

Dirty gradients contained within acute angle & rather questionable triangles, broken up by big chunks of sketchy black outlined in white, with orange star trails of paint that could almost be abstract expressionist graffiti thrown in for good measure. ___ #paintingoftheday

I still don't know how I feel about this new cover photo format. I'm using a smallish laptop, and now my cover photo, which is basically a naked lady painting, takes up the whole screen. 

I'm feeling a bit... exposed. 0.o

What do you guys think? Like the new format? Hate it? Haven't noticed it yet? 

 

In the spirit of the epic release notes +Tony Stubblebine packages up with every new update to Lift, I thought I'd jot down some personal notes that capture my early design thinking that lead to the new #coverphoto and some of the profile enhancements that we launched today. Although the thinking and design evolved and was improved over time and iteration, I thought it worth considering where we started from. 

So, take a step back and consider the larger picture (yep, keep going… wider — wider still!). Like similar social apps, +Google+ caters to a diverse constituency. Its strength and dexterity as a platform, however, comes from the fact that it serves publishers looking to broadcast widely — as well as those who speak to their audiences more selectively. And as Google's "social spine", it connects people across contexts through content, activities (i.e. with the launch of Sign in with Google), and profile information. But just like your Google experience is personalized to fit your needs, every Google+ profile has the ability to be customized to fit the needs and desires of its owner — from the most public to the most private of users. And so as a designer, my challenge was to negotiate the needs of both ends of this spectrum, while providing meaningful value to everyone in between.

I modeled my approach after familiar exchanges that occur upon meeting someone new: "Hi!" (the cover), "Tell me a little about yourself." (the facts), and lastly "Show me what you're in to" (the stream). 

The cover is the noncommittal "Hi" from across the room — setting the mood for the next set of get-to-know-you questions: "What's your name? Where are you from? Do we know anyone in common?" This information can be selectively shared, and when volunteered, needs to easy to see at a glance. The tabs between the cover and the stream support this — forcing a quick-gasp pause on the who before diving deep into the what (n.b. we also conveniently located the contact tools in this in-between spot if your intention is to chat, call, email, or hangout rather than peruse).

Everything below the cover — About, Posts, Photos, Reviews, and YouTube — all play a part in addressing that final prompt — "Show me what you're in to" — where what you share and how you talk about it rounds out the full story and provides further details (at least as much as you're willing to divulge!).

Another piece of context: Google+ is a young network, coming up on its second birthday this year, yet it already counts more than 500M users who have upgraded to Google+ — and each of them has a profile. Your Google+ profile is the one profile that you have across all of Google's services. I wanted to provide a unique, visual way to represent people and brands —  offering an expansive canvas for personal expression. If you consider that most people in the world still don't have a public profile, this design provides scaffolding for representing oneself online, and provides a means to express what you're about — regardless of how publicly you share on Google+.

So, that's a little personal perspective on the origins of this design. We're definitely listening to feedback (as we did in getting to this release!) and hope to continue to make thoughtful improvements.___I still don't know how I feel about this new cover photo format.

I swear, my Schipperke puppy Henix does this, though I've never seen her do it for this long. Everyone in the neighborhood laughs when we take her out, "Oh look, there's the dog that walks on two legs again."

Honestly, it's embarrassing!

[ It's like I'm turning inside-out ]

The part of me that used to long for complicated technique and dazzle-worthy eye candy has taken a vacation. What remains reminds me of childhood and roots. Blind contour on the living room floor, with my mother, earlier than I can remmeber. Did I know how to read yet? I don't know.

This one is very recent, but it still breathes the same as the old. I don't know what it is worth, but I do know that this is where I am at. 

I wasn't going to share it. I haven't been sharing this. It's a progression that seems like a regression, and I just don't know if I am ready to see it through your eyes. 

Yet...

Inhales, takes deep breath, jumps in.

It's been a while since I've done new work that I feel merits sharing. So here is an old one, a watercolor, called "Her Red Shoes", which will be my contribution to the #FirstFridayArtWalk  . 

If you'd like to participate, it's easy, just share a painting, a drawing, an illustration, a sculpture that you have made, or one from another artist that you love, using the #FirstFridayArtWalk  hashtag. And please be sure to circle the +First Friday Art Walk page, so that we can reshare your post from over there. 

The event will be going on into the wee hours, so get ready for a Friday filled with art. Let's take over the streams with visual beauty, again! :)

Best. Gif. Ever.

Adopt a childlike champion's pose
And expect a bit of resistance

I hope you’re feeling this way about your life, or at least the week that’ll take us into March. If not, I hope that something comes along to make you feel this way. Ask someone for back-up. If you have to drag them with you for support, do it. I did that just this morning. Alternatively, buy yourself flowers.

Sure, there are people – thoughts – waiting to pounce on your confident trust that you are safe, celebrated, lovable. Hey, there are people out there who, like The Onion, can hate on a nine-year-old girl. I would rather be an obnoxiously enthusiastic child, than a cynical hater of happiness. ___Best. Gif. Ever.

I've been off the grid for a couple of days... processing something and needing a dose of disconnect. 

Sometimes I wish I could sit down with a real cup of joe with a few of you. (You know who you are.) Talk, chill, and process together, you know? 

When the big things happen, you can only share them with a few...

#artthingoftheday  

Reworking an old piece

The photos show an assemblage of mixed media prints, fixed to the lids of cigar boxes, that I made for a show ten years ago. It's the biggest single printmaking-related piece I've ever made, and its existence has caused many problems for me since.

The details: 72"H x 72"W x 6"D. Called "Hecho en Cuba", each print is a mix of lithograph, etching, linocut, and photoetching, based on the month that I spent in Cuba back then. The images are maps of the island, buildings, people, cars, faces, objects, all collaged and overprinted on each other in different colours. I was trying to express what I saw in Cuba -- the movement, the colours, the vibrancy -- and also to suggest how memory jumbles everything up.

It was first exhibited in a group show in Chicago. Then a big name commercial gallery saw it, and took it into their inventory for a few years. My hope of selling it (and getting the behemoth off my hands) faded when the gallery couldn't quite find a buyer for it. So in 2010, it came back to my Wicker Park studio, and now it's crossed town in my move to a new studio on the north side.

Whenever I've thought about the piece, sitting in storage, nestled in bubble wrap, I've considered dismantling it and making smaller assemblages out of it, or just selling it for a ridiculously low price. But I spent some time looking at it today, and allowing myself to enjoy it, even to be proud of it a little. I'm even considering adding a few small pieces in the same style to plug some of the gaps between the boxes.

But I'm putting it up for the first open studio at the Cornelia Arts Building, and maybe this is the year that it will finally find its rightful owner.
