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

This artwork features a digitally altered view of the Chicago Skyway Bridge over the Calumet river.  The Chicago Skyway was built to be a shortcut from State Street in Chicago to the steel mills on the Southeast border with Indiana.   Transformation Is true of this region on a symbolic level as being my artistic media. The vibrant colors in my photos represent the vital role this industrial hub played in developing the Calumet region.

#GoogleFirstFriday  - Our virtual #ArtWalk  
Visual artists are invited to share, let's do it again today!
 
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

FOR #GoogleFirstFriday   #FirstFridayArtWalk  
Calumet Fisheries - Digital art photo of one of the last wood-smoked seafood restaurants in Illinois and considered an American classic.  For more info: https://www.artfinder.com/product/calumet-fisheries/
 Located in the shadow of the old steel mills, it is a South Side icon.  For three days in the summer of 1979, Calumet Fisheries hosted the movie crew from The Blues Brothers. Remember Jake and Elwood jumping a bridge in the Bluesmobile? That was the 95th Street bridge, where Calumet Fisheries is located.
