Crisscrossing Surf, Hawaii  
On an overcast day in Oahu, I became fascinated with the patterns made by the surf as it rolled in to Kailua Beach.  I waded in to photograph it.  With the cliff in the background this scene suggests to me the elemental beauty of nature.  More info at

Re-sharing for +MOJITO ART FRIDAY   #mojitoartfriday   #summertime   I painted this artwork on a recent trip to Hawaii.  It'S ALWAYS summer in Hawaii!  That's why I love it there.
 
My new painting, “Garden Pool, Palm Villa, Oahu” now at @Artfinder
https://www.artfinder.com/product/garden-pool-palm-villa-oahu/

Always summer In Hawaii… Recently I fled the cold Chicago winter for a wonderful visit to Hawaii.  In this painting I portray the peace and beauty of a tropical garden, with its many shades of green.

New:   Sonoran Landscape no. 2, Late June.  Oil on canvas, 30" x 40"

You're invited to participate in a new G+ #art event called Google First Friday ~   #GoogleFirstFriday  
 
You're invited to participate in a new G+ #art event called Google First Friday ~  #GoogleFirstFriday

As with most new things Google First Friday will have humble beginnings. Given time though it will grow to be a great event for artists and art enthusiasts alike, to share the newest works being added to the art world each day.

This is an event by and for artists. There's no need to starve or struggle if we all come together in support of each other. Hopefully over time that's what this event will become, a place not only to share your work but to connect with other creatives and to find patrons who love your art. 

If you have questions, please check out the monthly art event #TwitterFirstFriday  which I've been curating since early 2014 https://twitter.com/hashtag/TwitterFirstFriday?src=hash. Over the past year it's turned into a sizable art event on Twitter.

Please set your calendar for Friday June 5th which will be the first of many  #GoogleFirstFriday  art events to come!

Thank you for reading and sharing,

James Day
