James Day14,279You'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

Google Art Project14,953,400Whether 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 19:00:00499

Renewing the "today's work" series in the New Year.

Although the largest chunk of my studio time today has been spent on a color study for sonnet 81 (more later), I return to this "after-Cezanne" in the last hour. There is a theme of art (or, more specifically, pictorial space) opening up, of explosion into life -- a theme which is extraordinarily relevant to me now (and probably ever). Much work remains with this one, though.

Hello, dear friends, and I wish you a very, very Happy New Year.... I haven't been too active on Google+ lately -- a bit too busy and overwhelmed with lots of new things and ideas... I hope to do better next year. Anyway, I wish you a new year richer, more wonderful, more joyful and peaceful than you can even imagine in your dreams! Really, all the best to you!

A little still life (11"x14") I've been playing with over the last couple of days. I call it "A still life with Buddha's hand and a bottle of Sauvignon Blank in the background" (if you haven't seen this kind of Buddha's hand -- here is a link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddha%27s_hand). It's the first time I felt courageous enough to buy this fruit, and decided to painting before trying to eat it... This kind of painting is closer to visual meditation -- a pure conscious effect to get in touch with reality, dissolving the duality between "subjective" and "objective", just painting what's there, without any agenda of "creativity", or "self-expression", or "making people think", or any other kind of art-talk...

Today's work (in-progress, or "resting" -- I am not sure). It's called "Wellen Marina, wir Meer" ("Waves, Marina, we sea") after Rilke's elegy to Marina Tsvetaeva, http://www.rilke.de/gedichte/marina.htm). On another level, it combines my own plein air study from this summer with my recent painting study of Van Gogh...

It makes no sense to work "against" Google+ trends, so my on-going, on-and-off, "In Studio with Masters" project will now be a "collection". I am also taking it to a completely new level, starting an online program to try and guide people who want my help through the exciting and transformational process of in-depth study of masterpieces. So, if you want me to share with you all I know about this way of studying and learning to understand painting, click through to read more and pre-register (pre-registration will close in a week from now).

Sunflowers on checkered rug. 36"×24" (91.4×61cm). Oil on canvas, October 2011

Another painting from "Art is a gift" release... http://goo.gl/kbVgV8

I think this is my last post for the Thanksgiving week, since we are leaving for Ann Arbor early tomorrow. It's not exactly that Ann Arbor is "off the grid", but I'll take this trip as an occasion to re-center and let the things that need to incubate within me, incubate in peace. So I will be checking e-mail, but otherwise it will be a period of "virtual silence".

So -- have a great week, my friends!

There is a practice suggested in the beginning of the famous "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" book, which is supposed to make you experience a conflict between your hemispheres (which results in a temporary loss of orientation).

It goes like this: first, you draw one of these profiles (the left one if you are right-handed, the right one if you are left-handed), then the horizontal lines. Then you go over your profile, naming all parts of the face (forehead, nose, etc.) -- this is supposed to establish firmly the left-hemisphere control. And THEN you try to draw the other profile, keeping the vase symmetrical, and somewhere in this process, you are suppose to experience this conflict (I won't describe how it is supposed to feel, in case you want to try). For me, it absolutely didn't work. Maybe it is not supposed to work for people who have already learned to draw?... more »

Would you try it and tell me about your experiences? It takes about 4-5 minutes all in all...

Do something good.
That is the only weapon we have against the madness of hatred.  
DO. SOMETHING. GOOD.
______

The tears
will
have
 fallen
in vain
if we have not done something good

to show we belong to humanity
and get to write its story

and that story is about love more than hate
and courage more than fear
and giving more than destroying

Do something good
because goodness is a  weapon
goodness is our only weapon

we are simple people
writing our history
on cave walls

and I would like to write that ...
  we loved
and we mourned
and we did something good

when our humanity  was stolen 
we did something good
for someone
for anyone 
and stole it back
and claimed  it

This couple of days, I've been entertaining myself with something completely unplanned (but very, very rewarding...). The thing is, "Farm Fresh to You", our home fruits & vegetables delivery service, brought us three "heirloom apples" -- so enticingly different from one another that I just couldn't keep my hands off this study. It's sole intention is to acknowledge and honor these apples' individuality. A tribute to biodiversity as it were...

Hello, friends!

Since I've finally completed my photo-editing, I can now entertain you with good photos of new work (well, relatively new -- I had been delaying this for months, I believe). This one is called (un-creatively) "Sunflowers", 20"x10". It seems I've got a whole series of flower paintings in the same format. Usually I start an "anti-depression" series of shares at about this time of year, to counter the darkness outside. But this year, it's still sunny hereabouts... but nonetheless, this one would fit the criteria for an "anti-depression" painting.
