Akermans Art

Am sharing here. If interested, please let +Beth Akerman know.  
 
Would one or two of my artist or artistic photographer friends like to join me in a joint art project, and online art gallery/exhibition?  I am trying to get back into the swing of my ink drawings, and thought a joint project would be fun and motivating to produce some new work.  I was thinking of a theme like "Lines, Curves and Dots" or the "The Eyes Have It" or "Starts With An X".  Of course you would work in your own style, and I in mine, and we would do a minimum of 5 works each, and then put them together for an online art exhibition to be shown here on G+ and then on any personal website and or blog.  We would then also be able to offer the original works (each handling their own) and/or make prints available of the works.  If anyone is interested in doing this project with me, or knows of a G+ artist who might be, please let me know.

#gpluscollecting  The rich have their Jeff Koons and Damien Hirsts, and collections of Impressionists, Picassos, and Old Masters.  I though it would be fun to see how many of us regular people here on Gplus collect the work of others Google Plus People, and see their collections.  Do you collect prints from G+ Photographers, from +Joe Azure +Jay Patel  or +Athena Carey ? Do you collect original pieces of artwork,  from +Lena Levin or +Terrill Welch ? Do you collect Google Plus books, like the Plus One Collection put together by +Ivan Makarov or the How We See It book I compile for charity?  Do you collect awesome nature books by +Mike Spinak , fun items by +Paul Stickland , jewelry by +Jewelry by Rita Sunderland, or do you collect photos from G+ photo walks or photos with other G+ people you have met.  If you answered yes, to any of the above, please share your collections, and use the hashtag #gpluscollecting  Let's see how many Gplus Collections are out there.  I will start if off with just part of my Gplus Collection.

The columbines are blooming in our area right now.  A couple of edits of a deep pink one near the drive of our complex.  And Happy Birthday to +Bette Kauffman! Hope you have a great day!

Some edits of a purple hyacinth that was too heavy to stand up and is resting on a rock ledge.

I stopped at the art store this afternoon and bought some oil paint sticks to try for the first time, and this is what came out of it this afternoon.  I may go back in and hi-light the features a bit more later, but kind of like it this way.  I did correct the ear region a bit after taking this photo.  Not sure who this is, but she just developed somewhere along the way out of my imagination.  The work is 22 x 28 inches on stretched canvas.  I don't know maybe +linda stokes influenced me. Oh, and it's all either finger painted or the oil stick directly applied to the canvas. No brushes nor palette knives used.

This green thistle was waving in the wind along with the cattail fronds on Saturday at the park during a brief break in the rain.

#FloralFriday   #floralfriday  curated by +Tamara Pruessner I bought two pots of various colored ranunculus this past weekend, and they are blooming nicely on the patio.  Two edits of what I expect will be many more to come over the next several months.
