Google Art Project10,776,700Whether 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 19:00:00468

Stephanie Calahan943FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 3 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1384 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmFabulous Women on G+ Part 2 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/DRFwReXQvbFWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+If You Received Notification About this Circle--------------------------------------------------------------------If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified me or others in the circle as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9tI thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless it is 100% warranted. G+ Quirky Things to Note----------------------------------------* Google+ has a daily limit of 500 for adding people to your circles. If you haven't added 50 people or more today, you should be fine to add one of the circles daily.* When creating circles, you can only add 500 people a day (new) and that includes moving people around in existing circles.HOWEVER there have been2013-05-17 16:21:40353371128
Lise Bjerregaard Nielsen15,060A small circle containing my most favored painters/scribblers/creatives.They are a very varied bunch, stylewise, but to me, they're all top notch because their works and their thoughts brighten my stream.Oh, and they are all so very friendly and smart and nice to interact with.(Keeping my shared circles quite small, I know, but I find that is the best way to get valued people in ones circles, and a good engagement rate with new followers too. So much easier to sort small numbers!)2013-05-08 11:28:55209010

Back from a tree-days trip to Ann Arbor, and here is today's work -- a studio rework of one of plein air studies done with +Terrill Welch. Not quite there, but I've decided to let it be for a while (and let myself "incubate" further developments). At the moment, I call it "Two trees".

Today's work -- still working on this pair of sonnets, 69 and 70 (this one is sixty nine). Two more, and I'll be half way through... -- yet I sometimes wonder whether my life will be enough to complete this series.

I've been gripped by a bout of familiar panic today when reading a list of reading recommendations: books about Hamlet (just a list of those published within the last month is long enough). How on earth can one read everything which is an absolute must to read??? Isn't it sheer madness to write even more? Or to paint even more paintings? Will not our civilization be eventually buried by this mountain of its own cultural "output"?

I've heard once John Cleese say that he tries to learn something new every day, because he is an old man, and he'll soon die, and he wants to be as well informed as possible on that day. That's about how I feel,... more »

I haven't entertained you with work-in-progress for a while, so here is an underpainting for sonnet 72. The blues are a part of the first layer of underpainting -- a rare occasion when I decided to start with complementary colors. The painting itself, for some inexplicable reason, wants to be rather in the red-orange-y region.

Even though I’ve known about the power of metaphors for a long time, I’ve never realised it so fully and viscerally as in painting of this sonnet. This clash between my belief about how I experience love, and the ease with which my mind swallows the love-as-ownership metaphor as a “fact” revealed rather painfully how little I know myself, and what a powerless slave of language I am.

Another new release: Timber Cave: Rhythms of Time (16"x20").

Ocean waves glide towards the shore in a slow rhythm, one after another, measuring the time like an ancient, gently murmuring clock. But there is a grander, slower rhythm, which looks like a frozen present to the human eye. Here and now, it seems that the shore is shaping the waves, constraining and breaking them, yet in the grand scheme of things, it's the other way round: the curves of the high shore have been molded by the tides over the centuries and centuries of steady beat. 

The most momentary of all — and most fleetingly picturesque — is the sea foam, its glistering fireworks erupting at the meeting point of water and earth, and disappearing in a matter of seconds. If the foam could think, it would probably imagine itself to be the main actor on this grand stage, the hero of the story beingtold... more »

Just sold two paintings today, and decided it's as good trigger as any to resume releasing paintings for sale -- an activity I've neglected for more than a year.

I've looked at my Daily Paintworks gallery, and I think some of them will have to be pulled down in the coming days -- I am in the mood for spring cleaning... So if you like any of them, I am open to any offers and negotiations right now.

Today's work -- a studio rework of one of plein air studies from the last week (after a visit to the same place this weekend).

"Break in the clouds (Fir Tree on Quarry Lakes)". 18"x24". Oil on canvas panel. 

It goes into my in-progress/review heap, to "rest" as +Terrill Welch would say. By the way, +Terrill Welch obviously took all dramatic clouds away with her to Canada... This weekend, it was all eerily calm and tender. But the bright greenness of it all in March is unusual (and unexpected in the draught year) -- usually, it's all yellows and ochres by this time of the year.

Another quote -- especially for +Abigail Markov (re our conversation on your profile) , now from Rilke:

“So surely we have no choice but to test and try ourselves against the utmost, but probably we are also constrained to keep silence regarding it, to avoid sharing it, parting with it in communication before it has entered the work of art: for the utmost represents nothing other than that singularity in us which no one would or even should understand, and which must enter into the work as such, as our personal madness, so to speak, in order to find its justification in the work and show the law in it, like an inborn design that is invisible until it emerges in the transparency of the artistic. —Nevertheless there are two liberties of communication, and these seem to me to be the utmost possible ones: the one that occurs face-to-face with the accomplished thing, and the one thattakes... more »

But in either case one must show results, and it is not lack of trust or withdrawal or rejection if one doesn’t present to another the tools of one’s progress, which have so much about them that is confusing and tortuous, and whose only value lies in the personal use one makes of them.”

Today's work -- a detail from sonnet 71 painting.

Unrelated thoughts: I keep thinking, something mysterious is happening in the domain of online learning/teaching. One can learn virtually anything from the best and free (at least if one's English is fluent enough), but then there is also a huge range of opportunities to spend your money on online courses, and some people, apparently, do (and, of course, plenty of people who promise to teach you how to get rich teaching something you have limited knowledge of). It cannot go on like that forever, can it?

I think I'll leave these two paintings, 69-70, alone for a while -- even though I am not entirely convinced. These last steps are sometimes very fast, like a lightning, and sometimes very, very slow -- like climbing up a huge mountain. So, I think I'll move on towards 71 for now -- _no longer mourn for me when I am dead... _

In other news -- there is an interesting post on Mark Rothko's book on brain pickings today -- http://www.brainpickings.org/2015/02/17/the-artists-reality-mark-rothko/. I've just bought the book after reading it, so I have a good read to look forward to. 

In still other news -- I am participating in SF Peace and Hope fest this Sunday (as one of the featured artists). So if you are in SF or around and interested, please let me know, and I give you the details.

A partial update of my website -- there are more plans, but it's a step.

In particular, something I should have been doing more regularly: updating a set of twenty five "best" works for the "portfolio" page. In this update, ten paintings were replaced, fifteen remain...

There are also new additions to other galleries, but I think I will have to find a way of introducing updates in a more convenient, step-by-step fashion.

Today's work -- still working on this pair of sonnets, 69 and 70 (this one is sixty nine). Two more, and I'll be half way through... -- yet I sometimes wonder whether my life will be enough to complete this series.

I've been gripped by a bout of familiar panic today when reading a list of reading recommendations: books about Hamlet (just a list of those published within the last month is long enough). How on earth can one read everything which is an absolute must to read??? Isn't it sheer madness to write even more? Or to paint even more paintings? Will not our civilization be eventually buried by this mountain of its own cultural "output"?

I've heard once John Cleese say that he tries to learn something new every day, because he is an old man, and he'll soon die, and he wants to be as well informed as possible on that day. That's about how I feel,... more »

I've heard once John Cleese say that he tries to learn something new every day, because he is an old man, and he'll soon die, and he wants to be as well informed as possible on that day. That's about how I feel, too -- and yet it still will be just a fraction of what there is to learn. Wouldn't it be wiser, then, just to stop painting and writing, and confine myself to reading and learning? The problem is, though, one cannot really learn without doing -- which sends me back to the initial state of panic...   ___

I thought it was a received wisdom that anyone can learn to draw; I am surprised that one needs a study to show that if you study something, your skills are improved. 

And what about changes in the neural activity? How else should learning a new skill happen, if the brain doesn't change??? 

Generally, I understand why we need studies to test received wisdom -- because the received wisdom has too often been wrong. If the humankind had never challenged it with studies, the earth would still be flat. But this one is somewhat too much of a waste of time (to my mind, at least).

Research shows evidence that we can alter our brains to enhance our creative thinking — all through the power of art.___I thought it was a received wisdom that anyone can learn to draw; I am surprised that one needs a study to show that if you study something, your skills are improved.

An older painting today, just because I am revising my website... And I wanted to tell you about a discovery I've made recently. Here it is:

The key to enjoying any activity for its own sake is to give yourself plenty of time for it... 

(It doesn't necessarily mean, by the way, that you have actually spend more time on it than if you hurry, or that you accomplish less overall -- and even if it does, it's still more joy).

I have an ongoing case study for this sort of discoveries, by the way: cleaning the kitchen: something generally hard for me to enjoy, yet it works (more or less...).

Today's work -- working on two sonnets at once, 69 and 70. The sonnets contrast and complement one another -- and so should the paintings. This is a detail from the sixty ninth.
