Heartland Patterns

"Heartland Patterns" is the title of my featured exhibit at the Illinois Artisans Gallery in The Thompson Center, Chicago. Currently, 18 framed watercolors grace the front window and wall of the gallery that is located on the 2nd floor. There is also a large selection of matted works and note cards, including a limited edition card of the painting that is hanging in the window. The exhibit will be up thru September 12 and the gallery is opened weekdays from 9-5. I will be at the gallery on Friday, September 5, from noon to 4 working on some paintings and answering questions about my work.

Fresh Wash on a Friday...

Trying to grab a little time in the studio this afternoon before weekend activities begin. It has been a busy week, delivered 20 framed paintings and 22 matted works to the Illinois Artisan's Gallery in Thompson Center for a featured artist show that will run thru August. It should be up and open on Monday. Also had to prep work for shipping and took care of getting a couple of digital entries sent out. All that cuts into studio time! Since my time is short and choppy , I have been working on some small-scrapes. This first wash of cadmium orange and cobalt blue is a start at establishing an interesting sky. Will post about the show after I get some pictures there early next week.
