Jo Mills3,948Did you not mark your calendars? Shame, shame. Last year +Scott Cramer dared me to sit under my desk at work and share a picture; I did, he reshared and viral chaos ensued ;P It was so much fun that we decided to make it an annual event, so get under your desk (or kitchen table or coffee table), take a pic and post it on G+ with the ridiculously long hashtag #InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay ! And, mind your noggin. Last year some companies even got their whole office involved; along with kids and pets - sitting under your desk is for everyone ;P It's Friday. You aren't really working anyway.

Girl Behind the Fire

Daughter behind the firepit before the sun fully set. It's the teenage pose, body positioned and framed around the use of tablet or cellphone; but for once not sheltered in her room. The call of s'mores at the fire is powerful indeed.

Daily Dose of Zen

Peaceful garden zen

Signal boost for +Rhonda Britton​​'s new Instagram project; if you Instagram and love nature, give it a follow. Originally she was going to do Vines (loved the nature pun) until they tanked the Vines platform. Love nature walks with her; she always finds something beautiful!

Weekday Morning

Looking out the back patio in the morning I wonder if anyone else is looking up or just watching the clock on their stove or microwave or wall or cellphone, their overriding thought to the task of scurrying away to school or work. Is there any regard for the clouds except a passing glance to assess the need for a jacket? Any wonder if they march still for winter's army or have joined spring's rebellion? There's a patch of blue beckoning me outside to see if sky or clouds will prevail this day, but daughter is already walking to the garage with her bookbag and bills won't pay themselves so I grab my jacket and go.

Spin

If you think about it, we're all spinning wildly every second; the world spins day and night as it revolves around the sun and our galaxy swirls in the vast cosmos. Maybe, for an infinitesimal moment, in the right direction and speed, she was universally still as this photo, while the rest of creation spun around her.

Thanks to my always dizzy +Maddie Cramer​!

Blowing Bubbles

Another one from the same day. The bubbles were so fleeting in real life; burst or carried away by the breeze. In the picture they hover as if she could study them forever. They are captured in her gaze here the same way I feel that I am looking back through years of time at my daughter; what truly was a fleeting moment.

Appreciating all the moments, +Maddie Cramer​!

The First three words you see are supposed to describe you. Shared this originally in 2011. Back then my words were "frail, clutz, nice."

Today's words are "love, broken, funny."

Blowing Bubbles

I like the black and white feel with this one. The bright colors pulled the focus of the image away from the magic of just sitting outside on a summer day dripping soapy liquid from a plastic wand and blowing bubbles into the breeze.

Thanks always to model +Maddie Cramer​!

Apparently, these are NOT the bananas you are looking for!

Ran across these angry #bananas at the office. I don't know whether they want you to turn around and go eat that sugary candybar or if they're purists upset by the peanut butter. Bananas are so hard to figure out. 😐🍌

On Top of the World

It's not all that high, when you think of it in perspective to other things; buildings downtown, plane rides, looking down from a mountain. But something about its non-permanence makes it scarier, higher. Overnight it just popped up in the grass field of the local fairground. It traveled in behind a semi trailer all folded up in paint peeled pieces like an old Transformer toy. Carnival workers with accents and missing teeth erected it and operate it while gawking at local teen girls in their summer shorts. Yes, it's miles upon miles high! 😮

I'm quite amused how people in movies and television look when they supposedly wake up. Even when they are made to look "a mess" it's a very put together and usually pretty appealing "mess". Real life is much more punk rock substance abused pirate with scurvy. 😜

Waiting for Winter's Retreat

Tinder in the firepit and log seat waiting for flames and hotdogs on sticks, family and friends shuffling to avoid the smoke, a cooler of drinks to while away the night. Not too much longer and we trade the sparkle of setting sun on snow and cold descending from fickle clouds to blinking fireflies and sparks dancing toward awakening stars.

I make a pretty mean s'more too, so who'll be coming? ;-)

Betsy DeVos DeNied! Chased Away from Public School Visit by Protesters

More of this needs to happen. Peacefully, but loudly. Follow her to every public visit. This is where I worry about the laws in legislation in many states barring public protest; my state of Indiana being one of them. I would stand with protesting parents if she comes anywhere near my child's school, regardless.

Thanks +Rick Dickson​​!

Poem and Poet

+Melanie Mills​ is often an unexpected delight. Highly recommend stalking her in all the good ways.

From original post:

Zydeco

for the lower ninth ward, in light of the latest tragedy. Written a few years ago on a drenched fat Tuesday

Zydeco

Deluge
is a French word
and quite apropos as the Quarter
lies drowned in a foot of water.

Not discouraged,
both locals and tourists alike
laissez les bons temps rouler
for Mardi Gras,

staring straight through
the war zone and FEMA trailers
of the lower Ninth Ward
and pretending their shrimp
doesn't taste like crude oil.

Great read by +byron rempel​ who I have followed and admired for years. This is a powerful and insightful, and personal, piece about the artistic life (curse of creatives).

Not stalking Byron? Umm, you really should.

Thanks +Melanie Mills​! I've slipped away into the fog of social media and really need to start following some of my old peeps more. This is a gem I would have missed.

Window at Dusk

So many people talk about the curse of cell phones and I admit their omnipresence in every aspect of our lives can be challenging; especially to manage the responsibility and addiction of always being "on" and the internet or apps immediately at our fingertips. But rolling over from a nap on the couch and being able to snap a quick pic like this which disappeared seconds letter, well, that is a blessing.

So many people talk about the curse of cell phones and I admit their omnipresence in every aspect of our lives can be challenging; especially to manage the responsibility and addiction of always being "on" and the internet or apps immediately at our fingertips. But rolling over from a nap on the couch and being able to snap a quick pic like this which disappeared seconds letter, well, that is a blessing.

Under an Old Oak Tree

This one's for +Dawn H Jackson​. She took the original image and I applied two different #Prisma filters to it and then merged those two edited pics into this one. Thanks for the inspiration you give, Dawn, even when you don't realize.

Great Words

If you don't already follow him, you should.

Thanks +pascal campion​!

The Red Eye.
One thing that is funny( sort of funny) as an artist... sometimes you try something different, like drawing with a different pen, a different way a different technique and you put a lot of effort into it and you’re super proud of it, but the majority of people who look at your image just go...”meh......it’s ok..” and you’re slightly upset.( I’m kidding.. you get really depressed ) And sometimes you just throw something on the page in a few seconds and people go” WOW!! THIS IS THE B.E.S.T. thing you have EVER done”..and you’re just befuddled( I just like that word, Befuddled.
It use to really bug me .. but then I realized... IN GENERAL.. your audience doesn’t really are HOW you did your work... they just care about the result and the first impression they get when they see the art. If it speaks to them .. they respond to it..if they have to work at understanding the image, you’ve lost the emotional charge of the piece and just becomes a technical piece.
For us though.. we know how much work has gone into the piece and we feel like BECAUSE of the amount of time and effort and sweat it took to do it we should be rewarded with this particular piece being HA-MAI-ZZZING!! but it just doesn’t work like this. In art.. in my experience, people are dazzled by skills, but they are really moved emotionally by spontaneity and truthfulness which usually has the look of being effortless.
Lightness of touch...
SO... IF ever you are in that position of putting a lot of effort into a piece and feeling like it just falls flat with your audience....know that you’re not the only one and that you should NOT give up being an artist.
You should also NOT stop trying hard... you have to put the hard work over and over to discover, understand and eventually master something so you can use it effortlessly the next time.. if you don’t do that work, you won’t master it. ( And you WILL master it, you will instantly discover something totally different that you can’t seem to draw/paint/sculpt... but that’s another post).

All that matters in the end is what the audience sees and feels.
Just a thought.

Found a dusty old box of these at the office. I know they aren't extinct yet but I couldn't even unload them on LetGo. I did have some fun with Prisma on the photo, though.

Coming Together

Common goals, threats, and adversity bring people together. I choose to believe that this will eventually trump all the negatives set forth against us. I just hope people come together before many more are hurt and killed by ignorance, indifference, greed, bigotry, misogyny, and hatred. The human race can be as beautiful as it is ugly. We need the beauty to overcome.

Pieces like this by +pascal campion​ shine a light on the beauty.

+Kari Tedrick​ and +Rhonda Britton​ because related to recent conversations.

Just a couple nasty girls .

- You know.. I have to say.. at least there’s one thing good that came out of this mess so far.
- Oh yeah? What’s that?
Meeting you! I don’t think it would’ve happened without him.
You’re good at seeing the silver lining.
-You really have to right now.
