Google Art Project10,330,376Thursday *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. Enjoy and thank you for your engagement Good luck with the giveaway :)                #engagersshowcasecircle   #engagerscircle   #circleshare  2014-09-13 17:08:0239421269156

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 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

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 23:33:145001353699

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

Today is a Wash Right up to its Painted Edges - Artist's lament...

Oh no! Is that the weight of the other being moving to the edge of bed? Fog-filled blinking tells me it is so – and is it daylight? How did that happen? My day is a wash right up to its painted edges. I am done for! Grasping for my glasses on the windowsill, I leap, hobble and half-run and then stumble past the surprised being still sitting slumped on his side of our shared nightly nest.

“Hey!” He bellows. “I was up first.” But I am already up the four steps and rounding the last corner of the curved hallway to the second most important room in our dwelling.

“No matter” I silently grumble and push the lock into place on the bathroom door. Mine first.

Returning to the kitchen the mighty he is thinking about putting the water on for coffee. I swoop in grabbing the kettle just as hisfingers are a... more »

Meet Kiwi and Ruby, Grand Eclectus parrots living at the Bloedel Conservatory, Vancouver B.C.. Lime Kiwi and his Ruby red female friend are a noisy pair of birds but also flirtatious and curious. These parrots have the distinction of being the most sexually dimorphic of all parrot species which is a fancy way of saying they have the most differences between the males and females of the same species. In fact, I thought they were two different kinds of parrots when I saw them. The parrots are native to the Solomon Islands, New Guinea and Northeastern Australia. I think they would scare me half to death if I heard them in the wild. But I had a delightful time hanging out near their perch a couple of weekends ago.

Today's 9 x 12 inch acrylic painting sketch on canvas board at mile 80.49 on the California one. Another beautiful early spring day! This sketch doesn't have a name yet. Do you have one to offer?

This morning's read...

"For now, let’s consider well-being a choice, something you can try on and wear. When we put on the hat and coat of well-being we incline towards joy without special occasion."

French-born, Baltimore-based artist Jean-Pierre Weill explores in THE WELL OF BEING an extraordinary “children’s book for adults,” three years in the making, that peers into the depths of the human experience and the meaning of our existence, tracing how the stories we tell ourselves to construct our personae obscure the truth of our personhood, and how we can untell them in order to just be.

There are some disadvantages to painting in an area for only a few days. My memory of Fremont, California will forever be referenced to this fantastic dramatic light on the brilliant green early spring hills and the good company of a fellow painter, +Lena Levin. It is wonderful reference but maybe not very representational of this landscape overall. But you know what? I will take it and keep it as mine :)

I spent much longer than usual on this small sketch today. So much so it may not qualify as a sketch. I was just enjoying the spaces in between and the rhythms of the moving clouds and light so much that I stayed with it. So here is "willows by the Quarry Lakes Fremont California" a 9 x 12 inch acrylic sketch on canvas board.

The California Fremont hills were green today with dancing large clouds overhead and I was given a gift of the pick of plein air painting location in Quarry Lake Regional Park by fellow painter +Lena Levin. While she worked on a larger surface in oils that will be finished in the studio, I did two small acrylic sketches for reference later when I get back home to my own studio. It was fine way to spend a good part of the morning and early afternoon. I am including favourite of my sketches (the third image), a very early stage of Lena's work-in-progress with my setup in the background in the second photograph and one of my dear colleague and friend in the midst of it all in the first image.

Today's lighthouse - the Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse as seen with iPhone.

We are in Cloverdale California this evening and dined at the excellent Piacere Ristorante Italiano after a peaceful day driving through hill and dale and wine country.

Tomorrow we reach our end destination on this trip in Fremont California where we will spend the next four days relaxing and visiting before starting our return to Mayne Island British Columbia. Have I ever told you that I love going on adventures? :)

Tucked in at the Turtle Rocks Inn B&B in Trinidad California. There is story here but we will leave that for another day. It is a lovely evening and the chocolate chip cookies and juice are delicious! We are in for grand evening with a sea lion opera right outside our window.

Captured by a delightful photographer, Penny Lulich, who stopped to visit this morning while I was painting on the beach. When I got back to our room David was just lazily stretching awake. We decided to stay here in Neskowin, Oregon for one more night, enjoy the beauty of this place and catch our breath.

Notes from coastal trip....

February 19th Mayne Island to Olympia Washington. Heavy rain most of the way. Stayed with Patricia Hamilton and her husband Tom. Beautiful people and warm, relaxing gracious home. We had an awesome visit.

February 20th 10:50 am breakfast at Anne Marie's Cafe in Aberdeen Washington. Delicious hickory smoked bacon and eggs with homemade bread. Four loaves rising, covered with paper towels, on table beside the counter. Friendly servers and customers. We walked downtown - lots of vacancies. Sad little place. Cloudy but warm.

12:20 pm Westport maritime museum walk about. Strong smell of fish. Skies starting to open up. First photographs - fishing boats.

7:30 pm tucked into our room that Leonard Cohen or any other monk would appreciate. Having walked over 8 km and climbed 14 flights of stairs on top of our driving it will be an early night. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny with sea lions on the Columbia River.

I likely give the fashion police reoccurring nightmares and the beauty industry in general would have been bankrupt years ago if it had to rely on my purchases. So this article is not really what it appears to be but it is a good fun read and photographs at the end are great!

Flat Out and Edgy

My less optimistic self wants to let you know that you likely won't hear much from me over the next month with our leaving on travel down the west coast of the United States to the San Francisco area and with the final preparations for my up coming solo exhibit opening the first Saturday in April on Easter weekend. However, like the jig-saw puzzle of paintings in this photograph, opportunities are just waiting to be discovered. These are the last two paintings which now have their edges painted and are drying on top of the the dining room table. We will eat off of the coffee table for the next four days. I jokingly said we shall need to start calling our place the "studio home" instead of the "home studio." So, flat-out-and-edgy definitely describes my next few days.

After that, it is a slow drive, stopping for photographs and plein air painting sketches with a few visits thrown into the mix. Three weeks of adventures. I shall keep you posted as I am able. If I am not able, trust that I shall return with stories to tell and work to share.

Today is a Wash Right up to its Painted Edges - Artist's lament...

Oh no! Is that the weight of the other being moving to the edge of bed? Fog-filled blinking tells me it is so – and is it daylight? How did that happen? My day is a wash right up to its painted edges. I am done for! Grasping for my glasses on the windowsill, I leap, hobble and half-run and then stumble past the surprised being still sitting slumped on his side of our shared nightly nest.

“Hey!” He bellows. “I was up first.” But I am already up the four steps and rounding the last corner of the curved hallway to the second most important room in our dwelling.

“No matter” I silently grumble and push the lock into place on the bathroom door. Mine first.

Today is a Wash Right up to its Painted Edges - Artist's lament...

Oh no! Is that the weight of the other being moving to the edge of bed? Fog-filled blinking tells me it is so – and is it daylight? How did that happen? My day is a wash right up to its painted edges. I am done for! Grasping for my glasses on the windowsill, I leap, hobble and half-run and then stumble past the surprised being still sitting slumped on his side of our shared nightly nest.

“Hey!” He bellows. “I was up first.” But I am already up the four steps and rounding the last corner of the curved hallway to the second most important room in our dwelling.

“No matter” I silently grumble and push the lock into place on the bathroom door. Mine first.

Returning to the kitchen the mighty he is thinking about putting the water on for coffee. I swoop in grabbing the kettle just as his fingers are about to curl around the handle. I don’t look his way. In fact, I pretend that he has vanished into the mist. Filling the kettle I slide or possibly slam it back onto the stove.

I lament “I hate it when you get up at the same time as me. It ruins my whole day!”

To his credit, this other being knows when to retreat. He also knows when not to take things too personally. He grins and goes to his study until I give the “all clear” call. My coffee is in the thermos and I am existing past the counter. It is not really okay to brush my shoulder on your way by yet but I won’t bite as you pass by.

We both know it is not his fault that I have slept until the leisurely hour of 9:00 am. We both know that it was not his idea to book a solo exhibit, design a catalog to go with it and plan a three-week trip to California and returning only two weeks before the show opens. Nope. This ill-conceived planning debacle belongs to me – the artist who has no problem imagining what is possible beyond our wildest dreams.  So help me, do my rational, conservative, though underdeveloped, personality traits have no spine at all? Don’t they know we are in this together? If one part of us is set adrift – well there goes the rest of us – castaway with the next high tide and headed for The Great Pacific Trash Vortex. And the Creative Potager blog post isn’t even written!!!! It all sucks! The whole thing sucks! For tree frogs and garden worms I have no idea how to float this boat back to my west coast shore!

If we don’t think about the fact that these last two will require an extension in the to the kitchen table and leave us eating off the coffee table, it isn’t really all that bad. The postcard announcements are printed.

The venue menu at Camassia Cafe for opening night April 4th is set. The posters and local ads have been contracted out and are on schedule. The catalog is 80% complete – even though we all know that the last 20% takes 80% of the time.

If only he had slept in later than me. If only I had those three extra hours I usual have in the morning. If only I had a separate much larger studio space so there was room for my assistant to work and me at the same time. If only my mother was a fairy godmother and I had inherited her wand. Sigh.

Welcome to my artist’s morning. Now back to work….

What is your first strategy to escape bobbing in the water of unreasonable blame when panic sets in?

Meet Kiwi and Ruby, Grand Eclectus parrots living at the Bloedel Conservatory, Vancouver B.C.. Lime Kiwi and his Ruby red female friend are a noisy pair of birds but also flirtatious and curious. These parrots have the distinction of being the most sexually dimorphic of all parrot species which is a fancy way of saying they have the most differences between the males and females of the same species. In fact, I thought they were two different kinds of parrots when I saw them. The parrots are native to the Solomon Islands, New Guinea and Northeastern Australia. I think they would scare me half to death if I heard them in the wild. But I had a delightful time hanging out near their perch a couple of weekends ago.

A nice way to start a dreary and wet Friday...

#art #painting #sketches  

Sold! "Arbutus Tree in a Ray of Sun" 8 x 10 inch acrylic painting sketch.

For the most part these small sketches remain in the artist's reference material. But every once in a while, someone inquires about one and it is released for purchase. In this case the art collector had been watching over the artist's shoulder during an indoor market day and said he wanted to see it when it was finished. His comment is that the wee sketch is "so Mayne Island" and we tend to agree with him.

All the best of Friday to you!

p.s. there are a few other sketches in the album if you feel like taking a browse. If something takes your fancy send a direct message or leave a comment on the work of interest.

I hesitated a moment before deciding to share this with you simply because it is likely to be the "before" photograph someday. But if my guess is right we might wait a long time for the "after" photograph. This is where the "Red Gate" painting has gone to live. It is an heritage apartment building just over 100 years old in Vancouver B.C. The musician and collector of the work has plans for a makeover for this room. However, as you can see his guitar is resting close by and playing is his obsession. Between a day job, band practices, show gigs and a teenage son there isn't much time left over. So we shall see. In the meantime, the painting is enjoying the new ambiance.  This was a candid shot with no planning or prep. Most likely of more interest to me than anyone else. Still, it is what I have to share for today.

"The fishing boats are important but they do not float on their own in the morning fog. They are imbedded in their surroundings and are experienced as small against a grand sky that touches right down to the sea. I made them even smaller in relationship to the sky for this reason than my photography reference information."

After a break over the weekend this is my last day :)....
I was tagged by +Lena Levin   for this sharing game called "Five Day Art Challenge" ( #5dayart ). The idea is to share three images in five consecutive days, and also to tag another Google+ painter every day to do the same. For this fifth and final day, I am tagging the abstract painter who takes on large commissions in a grand and impressive way. Allow me to introduce +Swarez Art
In honour of the large canvas here are three of my own. All three of these will be shown in my solo exhibit "West Coast Landscape as Home" opening April 3rd here on Mayne Island.

These three today are in the same collection of an art collector who current has the largest private collection of my work. I believe she now as nine paintings going back to the early 90's with a couple of my water colours. And no we are NOT related ;)

Morning Fog Lifting in Steveston B.C.

Steveston is a historic village that was originally founded in 1880 by William Herbert Steves. It is now part of Richmond but always feels like a place unto itself.

All the best of a Tuesday to you as I get a slow sleepy start on the day.

Here is the sister painting to the one from the other day. Set aside to rest is "Sky and Sea French Beach" a 12 by 16 inch walnut oil on wood. You got lucky as I was only going to share a detail. But only the whole composition seem to hold the tension I was seeking. This painting could just as easily be called "The Eye of the Gods" for its iconic heavenly representation. But it is only a rendering of a break in a four day storm of the southwest coast of Vancouver Island. The work will be released for my solo exhbit "West Coast Landscape as Home" showing at Camassia Cafe during the months of April and May.

Ted Harrison was one of Canada's most popular artists. His love of the land and the people of the Yukon brought him international acclaim. His distinctive style of painting is both colourful and sophisticated, yet retains an innocent charm, and appeals to both young and old alike.

There is something fascinating to me when someone views my work and then can tell me more about it than I was consciously aware of myself. Today's commentary by +Laurie Buchanan is one of these times. Enjoy!

#art #westcoast #paintings #seascapes  

PROMISE
Commentary by Laurie Buchanan
 
PROMISE  is a 12 x 16 inch oil painting, one of a trio—Sky and Sea—of west coast contemporary landscapes by Canadian artist, Terrill Welch; this one capturing the first light of morning, a wintry pale orange hue dappling the sky.
 
The extraordinary from-a-boat view of the unfolding scene makes it easy to imagine the lulling rock of gentle waves against the hull, while overhead gulls fly tangents, their breasts opened to the wind. Sea spray on my skin, I can practically hear their squawking as they circle low, angling for bits of flotsam and jetsam on the water’s surface.
 
In the distance, a mountain goddess lays prone; a softly backlit fog blanketing her slumber on barnacle-encrusted sea rock. As dawn awakens, the lifting fog ascends to meet the penetrating sun, slowly revealing the small of her back and graceful curve of her spine. A wisp of sea-produced brine perfume shamelessly flirts in the breeze.
 
Exuding a deep sense of calm, the beauty of this painting resides in its deceptive simplicity. PROMISE offers onlookers the opportunity to examine a wide brushstroke of complex, sensory-infused emotions, while at the same time inspiring the temporary illusion that the rest of the world has disappeared.

So what is a painter’s life about anyway? Is it stylishly waving a brush across canvases in the studio? Or is it acquiring art collectors, collecting fans, preparing for solo exhibits, wishing for galleries shows and meandering museums? Is it dreaming of having work recognized and valued enough to make a thriving living? Well maybe, in a small part, it is these things. Mostly for this painter though, it is about tending to the ordinary.

Whatever it is that we attend to in our observation is occurring whether we notice or not. It is the ordinary everyday aspects of living. But we see them in fresh and frequently meaningful ways.

Hand-knit mittens for small hands. I left the mitts where they were found but I shared the photograph on private info page for our small island with a description of their location. The owners identified them and cycled across the island to collect these lovely well-worn hand warmers.

The heavy fog on the road this day - this painting is an interpretation of common-place stillness that is clearly visible in my sensory memory.
ROAD TO EVERYDAY 36 x 24 inch oil on canvas

What a weekend it has turned out to be with the opening of an online solo exhibit and attempting my first-ever auction of a small painting sketch. At the moment I just want to retreat down this road with a few brushes, my paint box and a small canvas. But it is pouring rain outside so it is a studio day - an organizing and tidying day. But darn those paintbrushes just keep rattling in the jars!

The heavy fog on the road this day - this painting is an interpretation of common-place stillness that is clearly visible in my sensory memory.

The soft filtered light of late summer minimizes the contrast as we drift into the spaces in between, enjoying the colours and the relationships within this still life painting...

Plums Apples and mostly sunflowers 20 x 24 inch oil on canvas

This time of year I sometimes like to eat lemons and limes by the slice and I use them in my cooking all the time. As the days get longer I begin to imagine another summer, the feel of sun on my skin and the sound of bees in the flowers.

This painting is still available and siting comfortably right behind me in the studio.

Have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!

Each year I do a few fundraising events. This one is for the Wellington School and I was asked to provide this gift certificate to go with a basket of my art products which were selected and contributed by our very own +Beth Akerman. Isn't this a clever idea?

The basket with the gift certificate will be auctioned off and as I understand it, you will be able to bid. Beth is going to let me know the exact date and such as soon as it is available. More soon.

You are likely going to see some tweaking of how I share my work this coming year. Social media in general is implementing a pay-to-be-seen model which is fine some of the time but in general sucks for small independent businesses who have worked hard to connect with their specific supporters collectors and enthusiast. What it means is if YOU want to see my posts of work for sale with links to purchase or read about how a work was created on my blog in your timeline I will have to pay.

To avoid this situation, you can subscribe to my website posts and blog post which many of you already do.

I can revive my e-news bulletin again which I am considering but not terribly keen on as it will have much of the same content as is in blog and website posts.

My advertising dollars are limited but I am sure we can figure something out. This is just a heads up that posts are going to... more »

From today's walk -> Late Afternoon with Mt Baker

It was actually cooler out than I anticipated but still most lovely! I am noticing that the days are getting longer and the tips of the daffodils are sticking out of the ground even here in the shade. But those smelt like snow clouds this afternoon. Likely only for the mountain tops though. Maybe I should look at the weather forecast for change instead of just sniffing the air?

Tomorrow I promise myself I shall get all my little ducks lined up and start them marching in the right direction for the events that are about to take place between now and June. I promise, I promise I promise!

An artist presented with a problem often creates an opportunity.
 
Defining the problem:
 
This artist has no 11 x 14 inch or 12 x 16 inch prints of my original oil paintings available and these are popular standard matted openings for ready-made frames with matte and glass.
 
Solutions:
 
a) The buyer can have the print can be matted by a framing store to fit a ready-made frame but this kind of defeats the purpose of ready-made.
 
a) The buyer can buy the print already matted and framed.
 
c) The artist can crop the image of the work to be printed 11 x 14 inches or 12 x 16 inches but this doesn’t necessarily work compositionally and may leave the work without the artist’s signature.
 
d) The artist can be commissioned to photograph or scan various compositions of an original painting, print the image on high qualitywatercolou... more »

d) The artist can be commissioned to photograph or scan various compositions of an original painting, print the image on high quality watercolour paper with high definition ink and embellish the work with acrylic paints. A compositional proof is provided for the buyer’s approval before the custom piece is printed and embellished.
 
Each reproduction is signed by artist. An inventory number is provided with the piece.
 
Archival hanging tape is added to the package when shipped so that the buyer has everything they need to slip the reproduction into their ready-made frame.
 
Conclusion:
 
Option a) is already available to the purchaser through my redbubble storefront and will remain.
 
Option b) is also available to the purchaser through the my storefront and will remain.
 
Option c) not going to happen anytime in the near future!
 
Option d) is under consideration for two hundred U.S. dollars for either size of embellished reproductive piece - shipping included for anywhere in North America.
 
Question:
 
What do you think? Is Option d) something you might consider?___

And here is another post where a painting of mine now lives. I am sure you can determine which is mine of the several on the mantel. What fun! Thanks for sharing +Beth Akerman! I believe yours was the first painting that I sold on G+ I thought about it recently as well when I was painting the resent winter sea painting.

Since +Lena Levin posted a photo of her +Terrill Welch original painting in its setting at her home, I thought I would post my Terrill original along with one of my many originals by Lena and my +Mikko Tyllinen and one of my two +Enzie Shahmiri originals that grace my mantel over the fireplace. The photo above is an older photo print of mine. One of the great things of G+ has been meeting these fantastic artists in addition to my photography friends and collecting both original art and photographic prints of my friends (I have a wall of photo prints along the stairs) and I also own an original painting by +Roberta Murray that is just around the corner from these originals. However, the piece that means the most to me is a print of a white rose by a dearly departed friend, +Lee Daniels who is sorely missed here on G+. Do you have a G+ art and/or photography collection? If so, would love to see them.
