Lincoln Park Conservatory on Monday to paint the flower show for a few
hours and it was beautiful. Still need to finish cards, shopping and
baking so the studio won't be seeing much of me for a while. But big
show coming up in January at North Central College so I do have work

Exhibit at Quincy University. As a part of the 150th Anniversary for
QU, the exhibit includes 47 works by art students from the 60's to
recent grads. The works were diverse, covering a range of subjects,
styles and mediums. QU Art Dept. Chair, Bob Mejer, did a wonderful job
curating and hanging the show which is to travel to Chicago in 2010.
All works will then be auctioned and funds will go to the art program.
It was fun to be a part of this exhibit's first phase!

managed to steal a little time one morning to paint. This one is of
the flowers and Russian Sage growing around an adobe storage building.
Weather was sunny and cool that morning, perfect for working outdoors.

Avenues. It was free admission day and altho the museum is her
interesting it was just too nice a day to stay inside. On the east
side of the building there were gardens and plenty of benches so I
found one and set to work.

supplies along. It was a beautiful day and we had a great spot in the
shade at the edge of the beach. Monday I went with the sketch group to
the Lincoln Park Conservatory. The flowers and plants were incredible
and it was hard to decide where to start. I will definitely be going
back to paint there again!

every Monday in the Chicago area. We were in Milleninum Park to see
the temporary pavillions put up to celebrate the Burnham Plan. The
watercolors here are of the canvas pod pavillon recently opened. It
looks a bit like an alien ship in the middle of the city! It was fun
to be out to paint again!

couple of promising paintings in progress! I am not at the Fields
Project this week as I will be in Quincy, IL to serve as the juror of
awards for the MidSummer Art Faire next weekend. I am looking forward
to seeing the fine art and visiting friends in town.

day! There was a lot of good art, much of it by artists I had not seen
before and it was well displayed. The size of the show was much more
manageable this year, making it possible to see both the Art Chicago show and
Next in one day. Gallery owners were usually in their booths and were
greeting visitors, they and their staff were ready to talk about the
work they had on display. It was an inspiring and informative day!

to find some fresh approaches to my work has been a slow process
recently as well. But I have a few new works started that are hopeful
beginnings so maybe the work and the weather will improve together!

Now I have to get back into the studio and get some new work underway. Hope to have something new to post here soon!
