Best of 2012
Here is the collection of both "Audience Choice" and my personal favorites for the past year. It includes my first ever Joe-Azure-four-digit-plusses <giggle> ; the first image I had to hit the "What's Hot" stream with a major bang <giddy!> ; and one of the images that won first place in the May edition of +Chrysta Rae's Photography Scavenger Hunt <tail wagging time!>
2012 has been a wonderful year and I feel extremely fortunate to be here with this amazing group of people. I am now in the third mentorship that I have been running here at G+, with over 50 people to look after, and I couldn't be happier to finally have a place to be able to give back the gifts I've received in my life. 2013 will be even better … I feel it in my heart. I wish you all the best 2013 you can envision!

"La Femme Couchée" is my entry to the Chagall Challenge (see rules below). 
I've always been fascinated with realism, so this is about as "Chagall" as I get … for now. As an interesting backstory, the inspiration for the form and structure of this came from a map … ;o) (You can view a zoom of this painting here to see the brushstrokes: )

As well, +First Friday Art Walk is held every month and is a great way for artists to meet each other here at G+.


Chagall Challenge
This event is held in conjunction with +First Friday Art Walk in December. To participate:

1. Post any artwork inspired by Marc Chagall, in any genre or medium: painting, sculpture, drawing, prints, mixed media, digital images, sculpture, photography, poetry, short stories, songs, or anything I have forgotten to list here. Insofar as your work is inspired by Marc Chagall, it is welcome to our show. Please add the hashtag #chagallchallenge and tag +In Studio with Masters and +Lena Levin. If you have already submitted a work to a weekly #chagallchallenge, you are very welcome to re-submit it for this show.

2. If your work is a painting or drawing, please also submit it to the +First Friday Art Walk -- tag the page, and add the hashtag, #firstfridayartwalk , for easier search.

3. If you don't have your own work to share, please participate by re-sharing the submissions you like! By the way, you still have plenty time to do something! 

"Inspired by Marc Chagall" can be interpreted in any way you wish, from a study (or copy) of an individual painting to a general stylistic association to a loose thematic link.

water like stone

"Noël" by Ann Porter

When snow is shaken
From the balsam trees
And they're cut down
And brought into our houses
When clustered sparks
Of many-colored fire
Appear at night
In ordinary windows
We hear and sing
The customary carols
They bring us ragged miracles
And hay and candles
And flowering weeds of poetry
That are loved all the more
Because they are so common
But there are carols
That carry phrases
Of the haunting music
Of the other world
A music wild and dangerous
As a prophet's message
Or the fresh truth of children
Who though they come to us
From our own bodies
Are altogether new
With their small limbs
And birdlike voices
They look at us
With their clear eyes
And ask the piercing questions
God alone can answer.

Silencing Earth's Poems
Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky,
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness. ~ Kahlil Gibran

winter fantasy

In lurid heat,
flushed leaves drape
over icy water,
wishing for winter
and the dotted delirium of a world
frosted by the gentle drift
of snow

[not sure if this counts for #TreeTuesday, but I love the theme so I thought I would try anyway. Thanks so much for all the work you do +Shannon S. Myers and +Christina Lawrie ]

There are days when I am reminded of the power and beauty of true friendship. The power of friendship to heal you, no matter how bad you’re feeling. Today is one of those days, so I am dedicating this photo-poem to the spirit of friendship everywhere. May it always bring us comfort and warmth…
after the rain,
the sun was flung into the grass.
it swayed, keeping time— 
mixing the sky and the wind
into a sweet, warm music,
consoling the heartbroken earth
about the onset of winter.

Who holds the key that can set us free?

And finally, this question...
The mystery of whose story it will be...
Of who draws the curtain. 
Who is it that chooses our steps in the dance? 
Who drives us mad, 
lashes us with whips 
and crowns us with victory when we survive the impossible? 
Who is it that tells all these things? 

Who honors those we love for the very life we live? 
Who sends monsters to kill us and at the same time sings that we'll never die? 
Who teaches us what's real and how to laugh at lies? 
Who decides why we live and what we'll die to defend? 
Who chains us and who holds the key that can set us free? 

It's YOU.

Today is kind of a cool day. Why? Well, because it’s +Brad Buckmaster's  un-birthday of course :) #happybdaybrad

Brad is becoming known for his animal photos, but honestly there is just so much more to him than cute fox shots. Brad is just a joy to be around. He not only writes the most thoughtful comments on everyone's posts, but also writes some brilliant posts of his own. I can still remember a hilarious post he wrote for #ThrowAwayThursday last fall.

Brad also has a deep background in art and art history, and we often like to post photos that recall different visual artists that we love. For example, I’ll post a photo, but he’ll be the only one who notices the Mondrian influence. Recently, he’s been experimenting with different styles of photography and posting his own paintography and even drawings.

So I wrote a special poem to go with this photo for Brad on his un-birthday to celebrate our mutual love of painting and the visual arts.

Sorry Brad! It’s not a cute little fox, but I hope it will do ;)

[photo was taken at Monet’s gardens, Giverny, in France]

Happy un-Birthday my friend!


like Monet, who painted his water lilies
while going blind,
I’m driven to look at what
I can’t quite see.
it is not the impression of lily pads
floating like purple clouds in a muddy
sea-green sky
but the way the light hits,
forging a white void
from a heaven too oppressed by gravity
—a space where beauty is stolen
by sight and light
and replaced by a revelation
of the world
first ravaged
by the eclipse of night.

If you don't have the time
to create what you want,
to put your life right,
to live your life well,

When, my friend,
are you going to have the time to do it over?
