Billions of people around the world are celebrating the start of a new year and a new decade after the clock struck midnight across the globe. 

Sydney and Auckland became the first major world cities to let rip with huge firework displays, after a handful of remote Pacific island near the international date line had already flipped the calendar to 2020.

Organisers in Sydney decided to go ahead with their show despite calls for it to be cancelled amid wildfires that have brought swathes of devastation across the country, killing at least 12 and destroying dozens of homes. 

There were also fraught scenes in Hong Kong as the state marked the start of the New Year amid pro-democracy protests, as Beijing and Singapore celebrated at the same time. 

It comes ahead of Brazil and America who are still set to put on a big show when their times come. Hawaii will be one of the last to mark the end of 2019.

Fireworks explode after midnight over Garuda Wisnu Kencana cultural park as part of New Year’s celebrations in Bali, Indonesia, while tens of thousands of revelers in Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta were soaked by torrential rains as they waited for New Year’s Eve fireworks.

Festive events along Indonesia’s coastal areas near the Sunda Strait were dampened by a possible larger eruption of Anak Krakatau, an island volcano that erupted last year just ahead of Christmas Day, triggering a tsunami that killed more than 430 people.  

People flocked to temples and shrines in Japan, offering incense with their prayers to celebrate the passing of a year and the the first New Year’s of the Reiwa era.

Under Japan’s old-style calendar, linked to emperors’ rules, Reiwa started in May, after Emperor Akihito stepped down and his son Naruhito became emperor.

Although Reiwa is entering its second year with 2020, Jan. 1 still marks Reiwa’s first New Year’s, the most important holiday in Japan.

‘We have a new era and so I am hoping things will be better, although 2019 was also a good year because nothing bad happened,’ said Masashi Ogami, 38, who ran a sweet rice wine stall at Zojoji Temple in Tokyo, drawing a crowd of revellers.

Thousands of South Koreans filled cold downtown streets in Seoul ahead of a traditional bell-tolling ceremony near City Hall to send off an exhausting 2019 highlighted by political scandals, decaying job markets and crumbling diplomacy with North Korea.

Dignitaries picked to ring the old Bosingak bell at midnight included South Korean Major League Baseball pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu and Pengsoo, a giant penguin character with a gruff voice and blunt personality that emerged as one of the country’s biggest TV stars in 2019.

The Last Day Posts of Ing on Google+ Site April  1, 2019 Part 3

 Google + closed their operation on April 2, of this year, 2019.  It is more than one week now.  The more time goes by, the more I miss people who followed my google + site, and people that contributed their time to post their work in different communities.  I decided to present on my website, the contents of last day of posts on my Google+ site, which I had been shared from other members of my community and other Google+ communities.

It is to remind me of human interaction and relationships around the world.  Even though I did not see them in person, communication and participation with their ideas, and work, can interconnect our feeling of kinship.  I wish all of them the best, and hope we may meet again in the future.  The lesson one learns is that we need more interactions and communications between all humans around the world to be able to find kinship with one another.  This communication can help reduce human conflict and war that occurs around the world, now, and in the future.

FRANÇOIS MARTIN KAVEL era um pintor de gênero francês, (1861-1931).

María Szantho
Maria Szantho (1897-1998) nació en Szeged, Hungría. Antes de pintar, estudió música, fue diplomada por la Academia de Música de Hungría, Facultad de piano, llegando a ser una pianista de talento, cosechando grandes éxitos. Fue al acabar dicha carrera de piano, que comenzó a interesarse por la pintura, viajando para estudiar a Francia e Italia.

Su pintura naturalista, según decia la propia artista, estaba influenciada “por el hedonismo de Károly Lotz y la alegría de vivir de Gyula Benczúr“. Tuvo como maestros a los pintores húngaros: Géza Kukan, Karlovszky Bertalan, Fried Pal y Vitéz Mátyás. Expuso a partir de 1920 en importantes galerías, la M?csarnok en Budapest, entre otras.

Joaquín Sorolla (Valencia, 1863 – Cercedilla, España, 1923)
Pintor español. Formado en su ciudad natal con el escultor Capuz, estudió posteriormente las obras del Museo del Prado y, gracias a una beca, pudo residir y estudiar en Roma de 1884 a 1889. En esta época se dedicó sobre todo a cuadros de temática histórica, que no ofrecen demasiado interés.

Un viaje a París en 1894 lo puso en contacto con la pintura impresionista, lo que supuso una verdadera revolución en su estilo. Abandonó los temas anteriores y comenzó a pintar al aire libre, dejándose invadir por la luz y el color del Mediterráneo. Son precisamente las obras de colores claros y pincelada vigorosa que reproducen escenas a orillas del mar las que más se identifican con el arte de Sorolla.

Sin embargo, fue un artista muy activo, que realizó también numerosos retratos de personalidades españolas y algunas obras de denuncia social (¡Y aún dicen que el pescado es caro!) bajo la influencia de su amigo Blasco Ibáñez.

Su estilo agradable y fácil hizo que recibiera innumerables encargos, que le permitieron gozar de una desahogada posición social. Su fama rebasó las fronteras españolas para extenderse por toda Europa y Estados Unidos, donde expuso en varias ocasiones. De 1910 a 1920 pintó una serie de murales con temas regionales para la Hispanic Society of America de Nueva York.

En el estilo más característico de Sorolla, el de técnica y concepción impresionista, destaca la representación de la figura humana (niños desnudos, mujeres con vestidos vaporosos) sobre un fondo de playa o de paisaje, donde los reflejos, las sombras, las transparencias, la intensidad de la luz y el color transfiguran la imagen y dan valor a temas en sí mismo intrascendentes.

Algunos críticos consideran estas obras un cruce entre los impresionistas franceses y los acuarelistas ingleses. Existe una importante colección de pintura suya en el Museo Sorolla de Madrid.

Juan González Alacreu
Juan González Alacreu nació en Burriana, Castellón, en 1937.
En 1968 constituyó con Frejo y Alfredo Sanchis Cortés el equipo Art Studium, dedicado a la producción de libros ilustrados infantiles y series para el mercado exterior.

Finalizada su etapa como ilustrador decidió dedicarse por entero a la pintura. Su obra se destaca por un arte, donde la pureza del dibujo es la base de su trabajo, para más tarde pintar la luz, los trasluces y los reflejos, con pinceladas vigorosas, llenas de óleo. En su pintura se ve una gran influencia de pintores valencianos como Sorolla. Ha sido pintor oficial de la fallera mayor de Valencia durante muchos años. Su obra ha sido expuesta en numerosas salas de arte y se encuentra en colecciones privadas de todo el mundo.

Arquer Buigas
Cayetano de Arquer Buigas (1932), pintor español nacido en Barcelona. Retratista loado por la crítica por su interpretación particular de la mujer, tema central de su obra, destacando por sus aportaciones personales, de las que son reconocidas, entre otras, sus nucas femeninas.

Un artista cuya obra no requiere de complejas explicaciones. Sencillamente se siente a través de la emoción y belleza de cada una de sus pinceladas, del talento y de una capacidad de comunicar sin artificios, que solamente poseen los grandes artistas.

Themes and groups like this made me addicted to Google Plus and photography. Maybe I’ll get some more sleep in the future 😉

Given we have a tulip festival every spring, it’s not surprising I have more than a few images of tulips in my archives 🙂

Google+ is no longer available for consumer (personal) and brand accounts

From all of us on the Google+ team,
thank you for making Google+ such a special place.

What happened to Google+?

In December 2018, we announced our decision to shut down Google+ for consumers in April 2019.

Other Google products (such as Gmail, Google Photos, Google Drive, YouTube) were not shut down as part of the consumer Google+ shutdown and you can continue using those products. The Google Account you use to sign in to these services will remain. Note that photos and videos already backed up in Google Photos will not be deleted. Learn more

What happened to my Google+ content?

We are in the process of deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts and Google+ pages. This process will take a few months to complete, and content may remain through this time. In the meantime, if you previously created content on Google+, you may be able to download and save your remaining Google+ content and delete your Google+ profile. You may also be able to view and delete your remaining Google+ activity.

If I also use Google+ with my G Suite account, for example at work or school, how will I be impacted?

Google+ for G Suite will continue as a way for people across an organization to have discussions. Learn more about how we’re continuing our investment in Google+ for G Suite.

If you’re not sure if your organization uses G Suite, you can check here. G Suite customers may see some changes to Google+ features related to the consumer Google+ shutdown. You can find more details here or you can talk to your G Suite administrator to learn more.

See the full FAQ for more details about the consumer Google+ shutdown.”

How landscape designer Piet Oudolf captures nature’s ‘emotion’

PBS NewsHour  Published on Apr 16, 2019

As spring takes hold, sparking thoughts of budding plants and new life, we explore how one of the world’s preeminent landscape designers approaches creating a garden. Piet Oudolf is perhaps best known for his work on New York City’s High Line, though he has designed gardens around the world. Jeffrey Brown met up with Oudolf at his home in the Netherlands to discuss the “emotion” of nature.
