Monday Outing

Yesterday we went to the Chicago Historical Museum T Clark & North
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.

Out on Locations

We went to the Chicago Air & Water Show on Saturday so I took my
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!

Out to Paint!

I had the opportunity to join up with a group that goes out to sketch
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!
