Dog's Best Friend

Two weeks ago I was in a local art fair.  Not a good weekend weather-wise for an art fail....so much rain....they even had to move my tent and display on Sunday since it was under 2" of water.   We had a few hours when it didn't rain on Sunday and some people wadded out. This is one of my students, Jodi, and her gals.  I took some photos and then did this for the Daily Paintworks Challenge.

I felt like painting a little fall...but I do not want summer to leave us.  It is so sad that the schools begin classes in about 2 weeks.  Bring back fall semesters that begin after Labor Day.

Take the River Tour-Chicago

cityscape

This is a perfect time to come to Chicago and experience it for yourself.

Helped to hang 88 paintings for the SLAC (South Lake Artists Co-Op) today.  There were 4 of us helping. It took us almost 8 hours ....This is at Wildrose Brewery, in Griffith, Indiana.  I have 3 pieces in this show.  As I was hanging it, I even purchased a piece for my art collection.  See, even artists purchase art from fellow artists....so you can, too!!

Plen Air Painting

A local art group here in Indiana is the "Illiana Artists" art group.  We had our annual picnic at Larry and Carol Lyn Brechner's home/lake.  We had a blast.   A few of us were painting and many were taking photos.  As president of this group, I thought it would be best if I do some painting...It was so much fun...will have to do more painting on location.
