James Day14,173You'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 22:00:00206

Google Art Project13,013,126Whether in a cave lit by tallow candles, or in a cubicle aglow with code racing across a screen, artists are always challenged by the spaces around them. Pictorial space—the representation of a room, a landscape, or even just an abstract sense of place—crops up throughout the history of art. Geographic space—a region, a town, or a studio—can come to define a particular period within an artist’s career. And more recently, the expansion of digital space—an area increasingly referenced spatially as “the cloud”—raises questions about authenticity, accessibility, and the relationship between a viewer and a work of art. Paintings by Richard Diebenkorn, currently on view at the +de Young Museum in the special exhibition Richard Diebenkorn: The #BerkeleyYears, address many of these concepts of space.  On Friday, July 5 at 10am PST *join curators, scholars, archivists, and artists for a live Art Talk about the role of space in and around Diebenkorn’s work*. Featured speakers include: de Young assistant curator of American art Emma Acker; artist and Diebenkorn scholar Mark Lavatelli; visual resources and art research librarian for the Diebenkorn Foundation Carl Schmitz; and de Young Google Art Project intern Sarah Kimmerle.  #arttalks  Art Talk on Richard Diebenkorn with the de Young Museum, San Francisco2013-07-05 19:00:00498

You know what's crossed my mind today?

In about ten years of exploring artists' communities and blogs online, I've seen dozens of blogposts and threads about what NOT to say to an artist, or "One hundred most frustrating things I heard as an artist", but never once I saw something like "What should you say to an artist?" or "Eleven most inspiring things I heard from viewers"...

Maybe I've been missing something, of course...

Still working on final retouches and on harmonizing sonnet paintings from the 69-77 collage. The overarching theme of this "chapter" (for me, at least) is "Duality".

This is sonnet 74: "And that is this, and this with thee remains." A very bad photo, but just for the sake of telling you guys what I am up to... 

And what are you up to?

Today, I suddenly not just remembered, but actually re-experienced the sense of magic filling the world that was my nearly ever-present companion in childhood. How could I have forgotten it at all, I wonder?

This painting is called "Surrender" (after more reworks that I can possibly count...).

Good morning, dear friends, and fair time of day! Here is a painting for this Saturday -- a still life with Van Gogh's letters. I hope it will brighten your day -- and may be lead you to read a book you've been delaying for too long?

By the way, if you are interested in my help in growing into a better painter (and eventually, the best painter you can be), the opportunity is still open (although the number of places is very, very limited). If you are not sure you have it in you, but still love painting, this maybe just for you -- and you are exactly the person I would love to help (as I would wish somebody had helped me a dozen years ago). Please read more about it here: http://goo.gl/CCwWh7 (and there is a free e-book there, too).

Good morning, dear friends, and fair time of day!

There is a special story about this painting. Once upon a time (and still somewhere underneath what you see now), it represented two "firsts" for me -- it was my first oil painting, and it was the first time I painted a nude (I did draw nudes before, but had never painted any).

I had kept it for years, untouched, just for reference sake (so that I could look at the "starting point") -- if you have followed me for a while, you may have noticed that this is an unusual behavior for me: I usually destroy my paintings fairly quickly if they don't pass my regular inner reviews...

And, then, at some point, I looked at this painting and saw what it could look like "really" (I know it's vague, but I cannot find more precise words right now). So I pulled it out, and painted over it, and that's... more »

Now it's one of the paintings available exclusively to my patrons through Patreon, for indefinite loan (you can check it out here: http://lenalevin.com/gal/Patr-4/) -- a project designed to get original paintings into your home, even if you think you cannot afford an original. For now though, it lives in my husband's home office... :)  ___

Today's work -- a brief studio touch-up of this plein air study from Bodega Bay: waves and rocks viewed from above (well, not from the sky, but from a higher vantage point, anyway).

Thinking about water and rocks -- a relationship linked, in my mind, to the age-old question of free will. The opposed positions of this (free-will) debate seem to have been drifting more and more apart lately, getting more and more sharply opposed. Some find more and more evidence that there can be no free will at all, others, finding more and more freedom instead. "No free will" is like rocks, the freedom of will is like water.

Today's work: Sky above Shasta lake (a rework from last summer). Something tells me it is complete, even though I am not quite sure it works at the moment...

If it turns out it doesn't, then, well -- discard, keep calm, and carry on, I guess.

I have received some first responses from the readers of my little free e-book, and people find it really helpful! So please go ahead and download yours if you ever feel that you don't have time, money, energy to live your dreams -- of if "real life" gets in the way in other guises... Who knows -- you, too, may find some useful tips and strategies. I know I've collected the very best of mine there.

Good day, to you, my dear friends. I am back from a short painting-less trip -- and however inspiring it was (and it really was), I sorely missed painting. And today, I only had a couple of hours to paint -- which meant just this small warm-up, but trying something new here... Do you see how it "shines"? Working title "Still life with a notebook".

I opened Brainpickings this morning (by the way, it's a great place -- check it out if you haven't already) -- and came across this quote from Michelangelo (from a letter to his father, right after he completed his Sistine Chapel masterpiece): 

"I blame the times, which are so unfavorable to our art… "

Dear master -- I shout silently across the centuries that separate us -- you are talking about Italian High Renaissance, right? Haven't you even noticed that you are in exactly the most favorable time and place for your art??? You are living in the Golden Age of painting and sculpture! I know it for sure, since I see it from the distance of four centuries! Its our time that is most unfavorable to our art, not yours! 

My only response is something sounding like a bitter laughter... :)

This is an older painting (as one of my collectors said "from your impressionistic period"... :). There is something impressionistic in it, isn't there? No clear edges, everything flowing into everything -- the sunlight and tomatoes reflected in the bottle, the olive oil filtering this light before it falls on the right side of tomatoes, and the tomatoes just enjoying the company and the warmth. 

For a long time, it has been brightening our own kitchen wall... It's a very kitchen-y painting, after all -- filled with light, the atmosphere of a summer Sunday, the anticipation of Italian-style brunch after a visit to farmers market. 

I have now released it exclusively as a "thank you" painting for people who support my work on Patreon -- just click here to reserve it as your own reward (and for your own kitchen): http://lenalevin.com/gal/Patr-2/12.

Good morning, dear friends, and fair time of day. I have some news -- over the last month, I've been working on creating this opportunity for you to have an original painting of mine in your home with your budget barely noticing it. All the explanations of how it works are on my main Patreon page linked below!

The set of paintings participating in this first experimental stage is limited, so please check it out NOW if you are interested -- it's all first-come, first-serve. 

And please share this post if you know someone who might be interested in this opportunity -- it will be greatly appreciated!

Today's work -- my third day with Sonnet 75: Thus do I pine and surfeit day by day, or gluttoning on all, or all away. 

What I am after here is a rhythmic interplay of busy & colorful areas and "empty" ("all away") areas. As the painting moves towards final stages, one spends less time actually painting and more looking at it from afar and listening to what is to be done. Sometimes the answers seem waaay too risky, but it's no good not to follow them anyway...

Today in the studio... this was the first for me: I actually used this little ladder to reach the top third of the composition. 

My usual set-up doesn't work for paintings this large (60"x60").

Actually, such balancing acts as I did with myself on the ladder, the brushes somewhere on the left, and the palette below on the right -- such balancing acts are supposed to be good for "getting in the flow" (or for "being present"): when the body feels it's about to lose the balance, the mind (kind of) concentrates. Still, I think for the top right square, I'll have to lower the collage to the floor -- but I cannot do it myself without ruining the whole thing...

Today's work -- finally, finally started doing something I've been planning for don't know how long: reworking the first sonnet collage, mainly Sonnets five and six today. There are several goals to this rework: bringing the earlier sonnets into harmony with what I have understood about painting poetry so far (and thus into stylistic unity with later paintings); unifying the collage, given it a clear colour harmony and movements; correcting stuff that has been frustrating me all the time, just here and there (we'll see where it takes me).

You know what's crossed my mind today?

In about ten years of exploring artists' communities and blogs online, I've seen dozens of blogposts and threads about what NOT to say to an artist, or "One hundred most frustrating things I heard as an artist", but never once I saw something like "What should you say to an artist?" or "Eleven most inspiring things I heard from viewers"...

Maybe I've been missing something, of course...
