Painting At The Lily Pad Pond

Yesterday was a perfect day to be outside to paint and the Sketch
Group was out at the Caldwell Lily Pad Pond at the north end of
Lincoln Park Zoo. It is a lovely spot with lots of trees, plants and
ledges of rock. The pond is well supplied with lily pads of all sizes
and is home to birds, ducks, frogs and butterflies. Here are two
paintings of the lily pads that grow in the pond.

Women In Grains Exhibit

Friday, July 16, was the opening reception for the Women In Grains
Exhibit at the Woolen Mill Gallery in Reedsburg, Wisconsin. The
exhibit was organized and curated by Catherine Bouzide, a Chicago
artist that I first met in 2004 when we were both a part of The Fields
Project. The work included range from 2D to ceramics, metal sculpture
to video and more. Art by 18 women from across the country make up
this varied show that covers a wide range of agricultural themes. The
exhibit closes August 7 and is definitely worth seeing. The photo
shown here is me with my painting, Agri-Puzzle. I have three
watercolors in the exhibit. Many thanks to all that made this show
