Google Art Project9,081,874Thursday 12 September at 11am ET, join Norman Rockwell Museum curators Stephanie Plunkett and Joyce K. Schiller for a discussion of the influences Norman Rockwell absorbed to become one of America’s most beloved illustrators. They will look beyond the narratives of Norman Rockwell’s art to explore the deeper foundations of his paintings. A creative force in 20th century American visual culture, Rockwell was an engaged observer of the world of art, and often called upon classic and contemporary masters for artistic direction and inspiration. This conversation reveals the depth of Rockwell’s interest in the art of other creators, and their impact on his imagery for the covers and pages of mass-circulation magazines. Ask your questions to the curators on this page or by using  #Arttalks !Art Talk with the Norman Rockwell Museum: Norman Rockwell’s Influences and Borrowings2013-09-12 17:00:00364

Brian Buckley57,256Sharing My Sept 13 Engagers Showcase CircleHappy Saturday. Here is my latest circle of engaging plussers. Again with this post I am giving away a special prize with this share. Make sure you read the entire post to see how to qualify for the giveaway! As is my custom I am also recommending you check out +Pam Adger profile and add her if she's your cup of tea.  Pam is an amazing, articulate, kind person. Some of her posts don't suit everyone's tastes, so she doesn't like to be included in a mass circle share, but I love her and I think you should check her out.READ ON - GIVEAWAY INFORMATION TO COMEThe Engagers Showcase part means that I would love for you to share a link to one of your own recent posts in the comment stream here. That is a unique feature of this type of circle and it's a lot of fun. It also gives everyone a chance to learn a little bit about why I like to have you in my circles, and if they would like to add you to your circles. You'll need to use a public post or Google plus won't give you a link to it. There are lots of new people in this circle. This is your chance to make some great new connections.Here's the second bonus for reading this far. You have a chance to win one of our coveted "Blue Footed Boobies" tee shirts. Everyone in this circle (plus Pam) who shares a link to a post will be added into a new circle.  We will give one member of that new circle a coveted Blue Footed Boobies tee shirt as pictured in this post: http://goo.gl/2MJGE4 - in support of breast cancer research.If you don't have a public post of your own that you would like to share you can include a link to someone else's awesome post that you like.SHARING COMMENTING PLUSSINGAll the above are welcome and appreciated, but please do any of the above for your own reasons. You are in this circle already because of our interactions or because I admire what you do online and I want to recommend you to others. This is not a snowball circle. You don't get in or out by the same criteria as most circles.Thanks again everyone.

Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016

Brian Buckley41,904Sharing My Feb 22 Engagers Showcase CircleHere is my latest circle of engaging plussers. This is the only circle that I share publicly and it's made up of the awesome people who I follow and interact with regularly. This is a curated circle and you don't get in just by doing the plus, comment, share  thing on this post. I regularly get comments about the great new relationships that people make by adding this circle, so I'm happy to share a smaller circle of great peeps.The Engagers Showcase part means that I would love for you to share a link to one of your own recent posts in the comment stream here. That is a unique feature of this type of circle and it's a lot of fun. It also gives everyone a chance to learn a little bit about why I like to have you in my circles, and if they would like to add you to your circles. You'll need to use a public post or Google plus won't give you a link to it.Happy Saturday! #engagerscircle       #engagersshowcase     #circleshare  2014-02-22 16:56:5420018656111

Brian Buckley29,594Sharing My November 17 Engagers Showcase CircleHappy Sunday everyone. It's time for me to share my Engagers Showcase Circle. We have a lot of fun with this circle. There are always some new members as different people engage. If you received a notification you are in this circle. You may wonder  *What is the Showcase Part All About?*I encourage every member of this circle to share a favorite recent post of their own by adding a link to that post in the comment stream. I think it adds some cross-pollination and allows each member of this group to feature a little bit of themselves. I love going through and going to each link, and so do a lot of other plussers. It's a chance to connect with some really great, engaging folks.How did these people get into this circle? If you are in thios circles you have re-shared or commented on my public posts. As it is all about engagement for me I really appreciate your contributions.This is a great group to add to your circles. Check out their posts too, and of course if you would like to re-share this circle, that is optional but appreciated.#circleshare   #sharedcircle   #engagerscircle  2013-11-17 18:26:1924119142105

Curating Content on Google+0The new Pʜᴏᴛᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜʏ ENGAGERS Cɪʀᴄʟᴇ is out!    [Mar 21, 2013]Record participation again last week!!  +1s, comments, and shares!  WOW!!Quick start instructions:➀  post a URL link to a G+ photo in the comments below,➁  check out some photos from others and +1 and comment on them,➂  publicly share this circle-post, from a new friend's stream (instead of ours)➃  add this circle, and replace it every week.You will get a comment from us and be added (or stay in) the circle share next week!  Questions?  Ask in comments below - you'll get help!Full story: This circle is for meeting engaging G+ users about photography.  The interaction happens in the comments and re-shares.  Post a link to a photo from your stream during the last week in the comments below.  It can be your photo or someone else's.  Then from the comments here, check out someone's link, and comment on / critique that photo.  Try to pick someone new each week, so you will meet new people and make new friends (more than 1 is ok too).  Re-sharing their circle-share helps them learn about Ripples!Results: your photos will get more exposure, you will be circled more, and you'll find active people to add to your stream.  Re-sharing this circle is highly recommended, and some form of engagement is mandatory.  That will result in a curated circle that's always fresh!  If you drop out for any reason, you can get back in at any time by adding content & engaging in the current weekly circle!We respond with up to 3 ☑ next to your name: 1 for linking your photo, 1 for sharing the circle, and 1 for a +1 on this post.  The circle will always have the people who interacted the most over the last 3 weeks.This will be done every Thursday.  It is for active G+'ers that want more interaction and exposure. This is a hybrid idea, taking the best parts of circle sharing, communities, and G+, and rolling them into one!Biggest Ripple last week: +Ree Saunders with 6!  The runner up was +Paul Paradis with 5.  Nice work to those that helped them!  The average share-chain (ripple) for the whole group was 2.47...  lower than last week, but we had many more shares, so still an improvement! Top Influencers last week: +Ludovic Moreeuw, +Michael Sonntag, +Ree Saunders, and +Paul Paradis.  Special thanks to you all too!See http://goo.gl/ldooJ for full details! #publiccirclesproject #ph2013-03-21 16:56:39422329104139

Charles Lupica60,136►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄         Top 500 most followed photographers          ►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄Once again it's time to share my circle of the top 500 most followed photographers.  I'm sharing the circle here but I posted the the full list as a series of posts on +Most Followed Photographers on G+. Photographers with an " * " in front of their name are not included in the numbered count because they only share outside content,  their content is content suitable to a blog and usually has no images associated with it, or they have become mostly or completely inactive on G+.This list was complied from two previous lists and a line-by-line search of CircleCount.  If you know of someone that should have been on the list and isn't, the most likely cause is that their +CircleCount profile doesn't include the word photographer, or camera, photo, or foto. Or, I had a senior moment and missed them.  I thought I had avoided that this time but I still managed to miss +Magnus Ericson should should be around 454. I noticed some interesting things when compiling this circle.  There are a lot of people that moved into the top 500 that abandoned G+ for some reason or their interaction has become one post a month.  I have also noticed that many of the photographers in this group have a lower follower count than they had 6 weeks to 8 weeks ago.  I'm not sure what conclusion can be drawn from this but I find it very curious.To view the lists please see the following links.001 to 080: http://goo.gl/mmr7w  4'431'409 - 55771081 to 160: http://goo.gl/mXuup  55368 - 37454161 to 240: http://goo.gl/rLmy1  37343 - 30457241 to 320: http://goo.gl/o06Hy  30131 -25785321 to 390: http://goo.gl/747Lf  25760 -23013390 to 450: http://goo.gl/xDc2D  23006 - 21347450 to 510: http://goo.gl/sEnac  21321 - 194402013-02-23 23:33:145001353999

Margaret Tompkins43,985>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 50,000 FollowersThis is a very special circle.  I’ve not shared it before but I have shared the people in it.  I call it the Graduates Circle.  These are the fine people that I shared with you when they had < 25,000 followers but now they have more – they’ve graduated!  These are the people who are top photographers, very interactive, and are the heart and soul of G+.  I ask each of them to identify those people who inspire them, form a circle and share it.The photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have between 25,000 and 50,000 followers.  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle. I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you! #Circleshare   #Sharedcircles   2013-02-16 21:06:161261232987

Jeff Sullivan1,152,722Most-Followed 500 Photographers CircleWhile a circle like this has the obvious drawback of missing some excellent photographers newer to the site, Charles often follows up his Top 500 Most Followed Photographer circle with circles going all the way down to photographers with less than 5000 contacts.  Here are four circles Charles has created to help us discover and recognize photographers at all levels within the G+ community:Under 5000 -    Under 7500 -    Under 15,000 - 500 Most Followed Photographers - (here)I like to interact with people who are active in photography... share at least a photo or two of their own original work per week, so I'll slowly whittle the circle down to a stream of excellent photography (I've started, but may not finish for a few weeks).---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+Charles Lupica  Charles Lupica Dec 25, 2012 (edited)  -  Public►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄         Top 500 most followed photographers list                   circle of 500             and Group 6: 421 to 500►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄If you're not in this circle and you think you should be, I'm sorry.  I have missed a few people by pure accident.  My methods are entirely manual and I do miss people.  I have checked every profile and I have included only those people that share their own work, and share it on G+. Bloggers and people doing mostly reshares weren't included. Some big name photographers that don't share a lot of their own work were included - sorry for the double standard. Here is the 6th and last part  of my list of the top 500 most followed photographers - Here are links to the previous parts of the list.Group 1: http://tinyurl.com/cf58vws - 1 to 100Group 2: http://tinyurl.com/bodaspk - 101 to 193Group 3: http://tinyurl.com/bsb87u4 - 194 to 250 and circleGroup 4: http://tinyurl.com/d4ulv6q  - 250 to 340Group 5: http://tinyurl.com/cjpmgy4 - 341 to 420 Group 6: 421 to 500 and circle of 500 (this post)If you are on this list, I urge you to comment, plus and share the post. I have sifted through lots of pages and circles as well as http://circlecount.com/  to try to get an accurate list. If I'm missing anyone, please let me know.  I have specifically left off a few people who only share links to their content housed elsewhere,  people who share a lot of other people's work without sharing their own, or people that appear to be inactive. The rank numbers are off by 1 because I included the same person twice in an earlier list.#Top500CircleDec   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  420 +Jennifer Luzio 21797421 +Matt Suess 21794422 +Nichole McCall 21754423 +Dane Clingan 21718424 +Xavier Ruiz Canadell 21700425 +Emi Fujimoto 21697422013-01-07 15:33:25500221350
Ardith Goodwin39,738New to Google+ Starter Circle for Art PeepsTo all of you who are in our community but are new to Google+ I wanted to share a 'small' circle of folks you can follow that tend to have a love of arts, share art related content, and welcome new followers/conversations within their streams. This group is to help you get your stream active, explore what it means to follow 'strangers', and begin interacting with others, if you so choose, here on Google+. If you are brand new, let me caution you to not approach Google+ like FB because you will be confused and frustrated. I like to think of Google+ as a great blend of Twitter, Stumble Upon, Blogger, and Youtube. The nature of this network is that you follow people who post content that you are interested in reading. Just because you follow someone DOES NOT MEAN that they will follow you back and that is perfectly ok. And, just because you follow them it doesn't mean they will see what YOU post. They will only see what YOU post if they follow you back. I have included several folks from this community within this circle, as well as who is a Google community supervisor here, and a great gal! I encourage you to add more folks as you see them share and get to know them here. At any time, you can also remove someone from this circle or add to it, as you see fit. If you are lost or need some guidance for Google+, don't hesitate to ask for help, many of us LOVE to help newbies. 2013-01-04 01:43:0253724

Vince Ong10,656Vince's 2012 Top 200 Kindliness Photographers.It's all back to why we circled a particular people in the first place? Yes it's all because of that artistic and impressive work. Well on top of that, a photographer needs to interact and talk.Why these people are in the circle?They are here because they interact and communicate. At least at their own post, they reciprocate and say Thank You to those that had left a comment.Because of their kindliness, I had certified them and you are safe to circle all the 200 great people here. You can start to comment on their work!Happy New Year!2012-12-29 13:30:3320115160124

Thank you everyone who contributed to +SacredSunday™! We appreciate your participation very much!The curators for +SacredSunday™ (that's +Chatchai Rombix, +Robyn Morrison, +Justin Hill, +Steve Barge and yours truly) encourage you to share with us and the G+ community what you hold sacred; people activity, temples, churches, historical information, poems, songs, texts or support.  SacredSunday is like a big travel around the physical and spiritual world. We promote no religion over any other and invite you to share with us what you hold sacred.On behalf of the whole team we would like to thank everyone! Hopefully the circle includes everyone that posted to Sacred Sunday this week, but experience says we missed some. We apologize if that is you.Google+ has changed over the last year and so has changed SacredSunday. The introduction of communities is now a great opportunity to enjoy a hazzle- and troll-free SacredSunday. If you want to share a photo that shows more than the depicted subject, if you want to share a poem, or a thought that means something to you, then consider joining the SacredSunday community. One last word: this was my last time as an active SacredSunday curator. I had a great time with you and my wonderful co-curators, but after a year I want to back off a bit and enjoy a non-working Sunday again.The future's bright, so let's fill that community and the SacredSunday spirit with life!

Today is my birthday. I am leaning slightly more towards sixty than fifty years old. I often get asked if I qualify for a senior's discount. I blame it on my natural hair colour. As I start my day, I notice what abundance is in my presence. The sheep are in the field below, my partner is still peacefully sleeping and there are still two cloud biscuits to put locally made peanut butter and some of my mother's raspberry jam on. The house seems to smile and open its arms to my slightly stiff first steps up the few stairs from the room with the bed and as I move past large lounging paintings in the great room. I make coffee and then take stock while reading birthday wishes. It is a good life - a blessed life.

today's work...

still very wet - plein air Oyster Bay Late July 12 x 16 inch oil on canvas

As the sun shone, I worked the brushes from the shadows. The tide receded, runners ran, walkers walked, dogs chased sticks, children waded and parents watched. Then they all left. Still I painted. Just a little longer I said. The shade grew warmer while the colours were washed away by the noon-day light. I stopped then. I had to stop. Too much time had past. The painting on the canvas was no longer what existed in front of me. But this wet paint has felt the late-July day on this Mayne Island shore. The canvas remembers.

Sometimes, I feel as if I am moving through molasses in a Canadian January. During these moments, I find it helpful to take a moment and have a look at how things are really going...

Pausing for a moment to reflect: Since 2010, 50 paintings of various sizes and many photography prints have found their way into private collections. Many of the paintings have sold while still work-in-progress or resting wet on the easel. Here is a short synopses of my story…___Sometimes, I feel as if I am moving through molasses in a Canadian January.

I shall be busy today... Picking away at a long list of task I have been ignoring. My sister is visiting for the weekend and I need to turn a corner of the loft studio into a guest room. It won't be hard but still needs to be done. I was just thinking, it may be the first time since she was small that only the two of us have hung out. Anyway, this engaging painting by Bjarne Witthoff somehow captures the connection I have to her. All the best of today!

I am going to have to get a few of these throw pillow covers myself one day...

Sold -> medium-sized throw pillow with the plein air painting sketch of "Farmhouse courtyard Florence Italy."

Late last evening, I received a purchase notice from my online redbubble storefront. Someone had decided on an Italian painting sketch throw pillow. It wasn't in my list of suggestions but I think it works rather well. Thank you to the unknown buyer for their patronage.

Printed products available for this painting sketch at:

Just last weekend I took this large 3 feet by 6 feet painting to be "hosted" on the wall of a collector so as to make a wee bit more room in my small studio. It was quite something to see it hanging in a living room and feeling the ocean so close by... Please enjoy the commentary by Kathy Smith...

WEST COAST BLUES ROLLING WAVES OYSTER BAY
Commentary by Kathy Smith
 
The element of water is fluid and likes to flow in and around objects, curious always, and its waves are a forward motion of energy.
 
It is in the water element that all great innovations and ideas are birthed. In Taoist thought, water is representative of intelligence and wisdom, flexibility, softness and pliancy. Water can wield great power in a storm and overwhelm the land. Water symbolizes the resources of energy, time, contacts, and money – wisely, neither hoarding nor squandering that which gives you life. Water will bring you tangible gifts (a most unusual or rare seashell or let you see an aquatic creature rarely seen) and will often alert you to things that you should walk away from, or turn in another direction from.  Water is also the element of stillness, rest and rejuvenation.
 
People drawn to the water element appear a bit reserved, yet are very creative, sometimes even eccentric. They can appear cool and stoic, yet have the capacities to be still and deeply reflect calmly.
 
Paintings of water bring the illusion of vast space whether in the home or in business. Water is a symbol of life flowing, reaching, withdrawing creating—inspiring splashing its waves toward shores. The color Blue is the symbol of leadership, balanced force, projecting energy into your space-- glowing.
 
Treat yourself to the spectacular. Imagine taking endless walks by the sea.  Take this Terrill Welch original oil painting called WEST COAST BLUES ROLLING WAVES OYSTER BAY, home.

Freshly off the easel this morning....

Garry Oak on Brown Ridge 14 x 18 inch oil on canvas

Painting the spaces in between whilst keeping ones visual balance to capture the feeling of being high on Saturna Island's Brown Ridge is a challenge that this landscape painter is prepared to breathe life into. The intention is to allow the viewer's eye to escape the edges of the canvas and find themselves imbedded within the view. But not comfortably. I desired that sense of wanting to look, feeling the wisps of sea air in our ears while we steady ourselves on the narrow path. I wanted the painting to be saturated with not quite clear emotions of awe, wonder and internal loss. This may be a tall order for one relatively small canvas but I had to give it my best didn't I?

(not ready for release yet but done I think)

Turning Tide Blues

Take me to the Salish Sea once
and I shall forever return.
To stand on her sultry shores
as the tide turns,
is to know the universe breathes.

I am off to delivery my largest 3 by 6 feet painting to its host home this morning and to pick up another 3 x 5 feet painting that will soon be off to its collector. It is going to be good to have just a wee bit more room in the studio I think.

Early September on Stuart River

I am still playing a serious game of catch up today but took a moment to revisit a pleasant walk along the river with my mother last week in North Central British Columbia. It is almost but not quite leaf-kicking time there.

Introducing one of the most influential men in my life - Jack A. Welch

I call this image "Dad's Office" though it is the back steps up to the clothesline. Dad will be 78 years old this fall and I have witnessed him sitting like this since I was small - one leg tucked under the other and his head bent over something he is working on in the good light of a porch or clothesline stand. His hat has always sat at the same angle. His shirt, with pockets, loosely draped onto his shoulders - no buttons, always snaps.

Today he is putting a new end on the heavy electrical cord that goes from the generator to the house. But he could just as easily have a chain saw, boat motor, toaster, tractor, skidder or half his pick-up torn apart and ready to put back together, though the bigger machinery won't fit on the back steps of course.

Introducing one of the most influential men in my life - Jack A. Welch

I call this image "Dad's Office" though it is the back steps up to the clothesline. Dad will be 78 years old this fall and I have witnessed him sitting like this since I was small - one leg tucked under the other and his head bent over something he is working on in the good light of a porch or clothesline stand. His hat has always sat at the same angle. His shirt, with pockets, loosely draped onto his shoulders - no buttons, always snaps.

Today he is putting a new end on the heavy electrical cord that goes from the generator to the house. But he could just as easily have a chain saw, boat motor, toaster, tractor, skidder or half his pick-up torn apart and ready to put back together, though the bigger machinery won't fit on the back steps of course. We used to say that carpentry wasn't his thing but last winter he put all new windows and doors in the place and I would defy anyone else to have done a better job. He asked mom to get a book on doing it from the public library. He read the book, did some figuring and then set about doing the job.

Personality wise, dad is a person who is always looking at the bright side. He generally starts with the view that most people are good and honest. Dad stays current on world affairs through CBC radio and has an opinion on most situations. He is often the first up and brings a cup of coffee for each of us as we rise. By then, he has mapped out his day. This time of year this may include several or all of these sorts of tasks: bringing the bull in from the range; moving the cows to a different pasture; getting another load of winter wood; and, digging the potatoes and trying a new idea for keeping them over the winter.

Afternoons frequently include a nap. If there is not time then there is likely one dialed in directly after he has helped mom with the supper dishes - a newer task that he picked up in "retirement". The end of the day most often means a walk up the road or out on the point to take the dog to do her last business before everyone turns in well before the clock can reach its tenth position.

Mathematics still come easy to dad and he can switch between metric and inches or Celsius and Fahrenheit or doing calculations in his head without a pause. His natural good nature and optimism is contagious. Though I shouldn't leave you with the idea that he is a pushover because honestly, he doesn't have much back up in him. His quick wits and physical dexterity have come to his assistance more than once, particularly when he was younger. He was a sought-after hand feller of trees for much of his working life and these attributes were necessary and essential to staying alive.

I don't have many candid photographs of dad because he is usually busy doing something or other. If I am there as well, it likely requires an extra hand and not one that is also holding a camera. So when I saw him on the back steps working, I didn't even ask him to look up. In fact, he likely has no idea I took this photograph - yet to me it is perfect. This is an image that holds years and years of our interaction, a relationship I treasure and one that is filled with learning, love and great regard.

This is my dad!___

This new painting by +Holly Friesen is very much like some of the country I traveled through in the central interior of British Columbia yesterday. I have added a small 12 x 12 inch landscape by Holly to my own budding collection of work by artists in my personal inner circle. Once this latest painting has arrived I shall share more. In the mean time, enjoy the stimulating work of this fellow Canadian Landscape Painter...

In progress and all wet and shiny...
GARY OAKS ON BROWN RIDGE 14 x 18 inch oil on canvas

The view from Brown Ridge on Saturna Island is spectacular! I have been wanting to try my hand at capturing it for awhile. This canvas came together in a flurry following the latest one of Cezanne's mountain. I am not sure it has more than "good bones" at the moment, as a collector told me yesterday. But I need to leave it for bit and will revisit the painting again in a week or so. Anyway, I shall be off line more than on for the next week and a half. If you don't hear from me all is still good.

Oh! And just so you know, when it is ready for release, there is "a right of first refusal" already on this painting. That doesn't mean you can't still let me know you are interested of course ;)

As the rain comes down, I am packaging this painting up for its new owner to take it with them back to Alberta in the morning. It is going to very good home but I think I am going to miss it - just a little ;)

To the painting's great relief I have pulled it off the easel to "rest." Maybe now it will stop screaming "don't touch me!" if I wave my brush towards it. The painting may or may not be finished... but it seems to think so and well, I no better than to argue. I am going to let it cool off and see if I have any further suggestions I might be able to coax the painting into. If not, in a few weeks it shall be released to market along with the morning painting of the same subject (which ended up with a couple of additional strokes due to its close proximity to my palette). The evening painting is far more temperamental and has been in an all-out resistant temper tantrum for the past 30 minutes. Some paintings are just like that.

On the easel this morning -> Evening with Cezanne's Mountain 18 x 24 oil on canvas

I am not done with it of course but I thought I would share something I have been working on since yesterday. The painting on the left is more or less the same view in the morning. The experience of this place in the early evening was so strikingly different than in the morning that I knew from the very beginning I would do more than one painting. At home I frequently visit the same places over and over at different times of day and in different seasons. In fact it may be hundreds of time.

This practice has helped me to understand that the interplay between our internal world and what is accentuated by the light creates what we believe is in front of us. Yes, I do believe we most often just make it up using a view visual reference points for anchors. This is one of the reasons that photography is limited in capturing the human experience. The tool just isn't as capable of capturing this ongoing tension of the mechanical eye, the brain and the emotional stew that includes all of our senses and past experiences. To begin to express this depth of understanding I prefer to let loose with my brushes on a canvas. But to actually capture this fullness and tension an artist needs to paint with more than their eyes - otherwise a photograph would do. These two paintings are about this aspect of painting with more than my eyes and yet still keeping the anchors that they provide us. The second one is not quite finished but I think we can get the idea.

Today is my birthday. I am leaning slightly more towards sixty than fifty years old. I often get asked if I qualify for a senior's discount. I blame it on my natural hair colour. As I start my day, I notice what abundance is in my presence. The sheep are in the field below, my partner is still peacefully sleeping and there are still two cloud biscuits to put locally made peanut butter and some of my mother's raspberry jam on. The house seems to smile and open its arms to my slightly stiff first steps up the few stairs from the room with the bed and as I move past large lounging paintings in the great room. I make coffee and then take stock while reading birthday wishes. It is a good life - a blessed life.

Breezy Bay Morning resting 36 x 36 inch oil on canvas

This painting is more than a nostalgic moment. It is about a global myth and a modern-day fantasy. Secretly, I call this painting - the trap of capitalism. But for now, I don't want to unravel your enjoyment of this pervasive myth on a fine August morning. I leave you with its loose grasp on your critical thinking. I leave you with in the warmth of our common dream.

Getting a start on the next painting...

In progress - Breezy Bay morning 36 x 36 inch oil on canvas

I suppose I should be working on my European paintings but this one has been painted over and over in my head since I did the little study last week. I have a desire to paint it square which means adjusting the elements of the composition accordingly. Though everything will continue to shift and move on the canvas I feel like I have a good start. Anyway, this is where it is at right now....

As the plum trees sigh under the heavy weight of their late summer fruit I am thrill to bring you this insightful commentary about my painting PLUM TREE PINK by writer +Laurie Buchanan  ENJOY!

PLUM TREE PINK
Commentary by Laurie Buchanan
    
 Captivated, the viewer’s gaze is naturally drawn to the graceful bow of the plum tree’s trunk and delicate, blossom-laden branches toward it’s partner, the river. This 16 x 20 inch oil painting by Canadian artist, Terrill Welch, speaks of time—flowing energy—through which everything evolves and becomes.

Listen closely and you can almost hear the low, mellow tones of a shakuhachi—a Japanese end-blown flute—as its hauntingly beautiful ring drifts down from the gray-green hills in the distant background of this serene landscape.

The deeply textured blossoms of PLUM TREE PINK showcase the softer shades of pink: pastel, cotton candy, blush, cameo, and cherry blossom. The riotous explosion of heady blossoms hint at what’s to come—juicy plums with crimson skin and purple flesh that turns yellow near the skin.

The zen-like atmosphere and meditative quality of Plum Tree Pink speaks to the Japanese concept of naru—becoming. And because art evolves through its own temporal movement and flow, the concept of naru includes the movement of the artist as well: the painter or sculptor in creating their works, the musician performing a piece of music, a poet reciting a poem, or an actor’s performance.
 
PLUM TREE PINK evokes a sense of stillness, of quietude. It serves as a gentle reminder to carve out time and space for being. For becoming. For evolving.

My recommended read for today....

A moving story and photograph +Vivienne Gucwa!

New York City - Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, and Skyline (and my family history)

It’s hard for me not to get emotional when I view New York City from certain vantage points. As the child of immigrant to the United States, I have always carried with me the weight of what these views represent.

——

My mother was born in Poland right before the start of World War II. The war hit Poland hard with most of its population sent off to concentration camps. Her family was split up due to a transgression involving my grandfather and a loaf of bread (or a pig, there are a host of different tales surrounding this moment in time). My grandfather ended up in a concentration camp and my grandmother and her two daughters ended up in a labor camp. The family spent a few years enduring torture and horrific circumstances in a variety of camps.

When the war was about to end, my grandfather heard a rumor that his concentration camp would be burned to the ground in a matter of weeks and with what I can only imagine to be no less than steel resolve, he and a couple of the other men in the camp spent a few weeks digging a hole under a fence in the camp to escape the camp.

I have played the tales I was told tearfully throughout the years over and over in my mind and it’s still hard for me to imagine the feeling that my grandfather must have felt when he came across the American Red Cross who must have seemed like a fantastical beacon of hope after years of what he had just endured.

The American Red Cross gave him a bicycle and a rough idea of where the rest of the remaining labor camps were. Severely malnourished and skeletal, he took what little energy he had left and rode that bicycle through the scattered remnants of camps clinging to the hope that he would find my grandmother.

And he did.

What are the chances of something like that?

I don’t know.

But I do know that my grandfather’s next steps were to use his former ties as a merchant marine to secure a way for the family to make it to the United States. It took a lot of negotiation but he was able to move my grandmother, my mother, and her sister to Detroit where many Eastern European war survivors were moving.

And so my mother, malnourished and traumatized at the tender age of 9 years old, started her life over in the United States in a community that did everything in their power to lavish food and love on those who made it out of the horrors of World War II into the open arms of the promised land of mid-twentieth century America.

She spent her teenage years watching Hollywood musicals* and longing for life in the Big Apple where anything seemed possible. And so, after she fell head over heels in love with my father at the tender age of 19 years old, they married and took the paltry amount of money they had and moved to New York City without looking back.

—-

We would visit my Uncle Dan in Brooklyn Heights when I was little. He was an eccentric, larger-than-life figure who painted impressionist-style paintings of the Brooklyn and Manhattan waterfront since he had a near perfect view of the Brooklyn Bridge.

And I would run to the window in his office when we visited, careful to not knock over his easel, and stare at the Brooklyn Bridge with saucer-like eyes.

My mother would come over and hold my hand. Her eyes would well-up with tears and we would stand there silently.

I knew that this view meant the world to her.

And it meant the world to me because I knew that just to be in front of the amalgam of her teenage desires, standing there years after everything she went through during the war, anything was possible for me,

in this city of dreams.

—- —-

Taken yesterday from the 72nd floor of 4 World Trade Center with the A7. It’s a view of the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, Manhattan, and Brooklyn from above.

—-

*It’s my mother I have to thank for my steady diet of musicals growing up. In fact, my first passive NYC geography lesson was gleaned from the musical On the Town when Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly and Jules Munshin sing: ” New York, New York, it’s a wonderful town. The Bronx is up but the Battery’s down”, part of a fabulously absurd yet fantastic musical sequence accompanied by great views of 1940s New York City.

Today's quick acrylic painting sketch...
Though we have misty rain, it is most pleasant today at our Breezy Bay BnB on Saturna Island. I tucked in under the porch with the smell of banana bread baking in the kitchen and savouring the blackberries I munched during my walk to the car for my painting supplies. Beside me in the brush is a pear tree overgrown with grape vines. This time of year is so filled with abundance! I wanted to capture all of it in this plein air sketch without the specifics.

You're right, I am off playing in the sun much of the time these days. So if you don't hear from me for a few days at a time - all is still good. I will show up more often again when it rains and days are shorter. I promise - until then enjoy!

As a dull muggy cling-to-your-skin afternoon marks the beginning our long weekend here in British Columbia, I opt to share some colour. This is the last painting I did before going to Europe at the beginning of April this year. I have savored it long enough to be willing to release it to find a home of its own. Possibly, this is only because the golden plums are ripening and it means one of my favourite still life subjects is at the doorstep of currently empty canvases. Or perhaps, it is because I think they are ready. So shooo! Off you go!

All the best of the weekend to you!

New Release - TUMBLING RED PEARS
20 x 16 inch oil on canvas
Detailed view and purchase information at:
http://www.artsyhome.com/product/Tumbling-Red-Pears

Did you know you were going to paint these red pears tumbling out of a canvas when you saw them in the grocery store?

The painter blinks, slightly confused and unable to answer as she comes out of her painting trance – her deep practice of noticing what she sees, a seeing that uses all of her sense, a seeing that is disrupted by her memory and is enhanced by her imagination. At this moment all she can remember, all she can “see” is tumbling red pears – the ones she imagined, the ones she painted on the canvas. This is her painting of reality.

If you are interested in the background and seeing the work-in-progress for this painting it is posted on Terrill's Creative Potager at:

Also, shared for #firstfridayartwalk today. All the best of the weekend to you!___As a dull muggy cling-to-your-skin afternoon marks the beginning our long weekend here in British Columbia, I opt to share some colour. This is the last painting I did before going to Europe at the beginning of April this year. I have savored it long enough to be willing to release it to find a home of its own. Possibly, this is only because the golden plums are ripening and it means one of my favourite still life subjects is at the doorstep of currently empty canvases. Or perhaps, it is because I think they are ready. So shooo! Off you go!

All the best of the weekend to you!

today's work...

still very wet - plein air Oyster Bay Late July 12 x 16 inch oil on canvas

As the sun shone, I worked the brushes from the shadows. The tide receded, runners ran, walkers walked, dogs chased sticks, children waded and parents watched. Then they all left. Still I painted. Just a little longer I said. The shade grew warmer while the colours were washed away by the noon-day light. I stopped then. I had to stop. Too much time had past. The painting on the canvas was no longer what existed in front of me. But this wet paint has felt the late-July day on this Mayne Island shore. The canvas remembers.

Today's musing....

Portrait de femme assuse by Auguste Renoir (1841 - 1919) by Terrill Welch as seen at the Louvre - image taken for study

One of the attributes of Renoir's paintings is how little paint he actually uses in places. In this painting it is as if he has etched the figure onto the canvas and then sparingly added a swath of paint on her clothing and hat to give the work a curious kind of minimalist depth which the viewer believes is rounder than the applied paint provides.

On the easel today

Mirror Gazing Self Portrait - resting 18 x 14 inch oil on canvas

I have had this idea for a while then a special request came my way so I decided to give it a go. I suppose there is not much more to say than that at the moment.

Yesterday, while I was walking on the warm sandstone, a young fellow in his early teen years came lightly on his bare feet to join me. He was from inland British Columbia and I think he just wanted to share this gorgeous day with someone else who saw its beauty. The look of wonder and pleasure on his face when he quietly spoke - it is so beautiful here - was a strong reminder of how temporary a moment can be. But sharing it, as we were, gave our summer day a lasting balance passed its fragile wink in time.

Blue skies are never boring in the summer on the West Coast of Canada. Each one is treasured along with the driftwood and warm sandstone. For it is on these days that we almost forget the rain and grey of our wet winters.

Is it weird or am I missing something?...
The most puzzling and interesting thing has happened on Google Plus. My Business Page at +Terrill Welch Fine Arts is far more popular than my profile page. The art page has been added to over 30,000 circles and just keeps growing. My profile page however has remained rather static for the past six months and is slowly deflating. The difference is that my Art Business Page is strictly about the business of selling my art. Generally, the Art Business Page is not a place of conversation or where I share work-in-progress. My Art Page rarely shares anything but my own work. The Page seldom visits follower profiles or shares in Community. It is narrowly designed as an easy place to find access to my purchase my finished paintings, photography and art products.
