Busy painting, not so much posting! Here are a few shows I’ll be participating in soon. First up: Art in the Garden! I’ll be joining 6 amazing artists from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on September 10 and 11, at 1205 Hutchings Ave, Glenview, IL. Please come!
Next, I have a portrait of my beautiful Mom in Tim Lowly’s “La Mère/La Mer (The Mother/The Sea)” exhibition in the Moreau Art Galleries of St. Mary’s College in South Bend, Illinois starting tomorrow. At the reception on September 15 I’ll be participating in a panel discussion. I helped install the artwork this past weekend and it is wonderful!
Also coming up next week, I’ll have work in North Park University’s Alumni Triennial 2016. I’ll post more details about that soon.
This painting comes from the fields in West Michigan where I grew up, and where I often visit. That early spring green, the trees still bare.
Another painting inspired by a recent stay at the Green Lake cottage, and the magnificent sky paintings of Robert Roth.
Come and see me at the Summer Art Fair in Glenview this weekend! This nest painting, based on a photo by Savannah Hagey, will be up for auction to benefit the Youth Art Fair.
After an amazing family vacation I am catching up on projects and getting ready for this weekend’s Glenview Art League Summer Art Fair! I’ll be donating a small painting to the silent auction, which benefits the Youth Art Fair, so be sure to attend if you can. The painting above is inspired by our recent stay at the cottage on Green Lake in Michigan. I have a few more to post before the show. I’ll be putting some of these in my etsy shop next week.
I set up a new, diy plein air painting easel by the library a few evenings ago and made this small sketch. I like the color of the warm evening light on the brick.
I have a couple events coming up! I’ll be at the Glenview Art League’s Summer Art Fair on July 30 and 31. Also, I’ll have a painting the Glenview Art League’s Member Show at the Bookmarket starting on the fifth. There will be a reception on July 22nd, but unfortunately I’ll be out of town then.
A wave, a drift of flowers, weeds, lush and brittle. A gift, a wall, a path, a dead end.
