Friday was the opening of the 13th SEA Conference out in Lisle, IL. Altho the snow and ice made for some late arrivals and a couple of cancellations, it was another great event. Designed for college students in all the various arts disciplines, it offers something for everyone to think about and implement into making a successful career in their field when they leave the nurturing college world for reality. Thanks to everyone that works so hard to fund and plan this important event!
Last Monday we were at Union Station for our first venture out for 2013. The Great Hall is a huge space and a challenge to draw, most of us choose to focus on the people passing thru or sitting for awhile on the long benches. Those that fell asleep made especially good models! I was across the room from my subjects so decided to keep my sketch on the small scale as detail was difficult to catch. We had a nice turn out with some members of Urban Sketchers Chicago joining us.
It was a rather busy week for me but I made sure I got some time in the studio everyday, for the first time this year. I have several paintings started but this one is part of a series of small 4x4 paintings continuing to experiment with pouring, painting and printing. I used some gold paint and several different processes in this one.
