This is a typical scene that you would see all the time if you lived in the "Region."   This is the calumet region of Indiana which is about 35 miles south of Chicago.  The mill in the background is Inland Steel.

Tomorrow I will deliver my paintings for the show at the Indiana visitor's center in Hammond, Indiana.  The center in off of 80/94 at the Kennedy Ave. Exit.   It opens July 21st. The show is titled "Along the Lake Shore."  You will be able to see between 40 and 62 of my watercolors of Chicago and Industry.  Also included in this exhibit are photos by Mathew Kaplan and Thomas Hocker...they will also have at least 40 photos each on Industry and Chicago.

These are some of the peonies that I had this year in my garden....I have all kinds of flowers growing now....hopefully I will get to weeding the gardens in the next few days.  I do enjoy weeding and I do it a couple times a week....It has been really hot here in the Chicago area...stay cool.

Still Unloading

Been really busy here getting ready for a big show next month.  I just finished framing up 40 paintings on Chicago and Industry....While I was framing the last 2 paintings, I broke my flexi-brad gun thing....you know to hold the painting into the frame.  Luckily, I had a regular brad gun so it was ok.  But now I need to order another flexi point gun.
