Thompson Center

Today I was gallery sitting/working at the Thompson Center in Chicago. I have three paintings in a group show with 18 other members of the Illinois Artisan Program. This week long exhibit is part of the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Artisan program. The small watercolor here is of a sculpture in the atrium, it was right across the table so it was easy to sketch and still interact with visitors to the show. Aside from the chilly air in the atrium, it was a nice morning and thanks to those that stopped to visit!

Salt & Pepper At The Corner Bakery

Today the Sketch Group got together at the Corner Bakery on the corner of Rush and Cedar to work a bit and plan for 2011. We roughed out a schedule for the first part of the year and a list of possible locations. Visits to some exhibits will be added to our activities this year! With the time we had left, I worked on a drawing of a few items on the table and added color after arriving home. It was good to see everyone and wonderful to get back to work!!
