Chicago series-IX

watercolor

7" x 11"

Here is #9 in my little Chicago series.  These I made for my solo show which was "One Hour From Home."  Since I do not like to travel, I wanted to show how you can find subjects all around you if only we would open our eyes.  These little paintings that are 9" x 11" are matted to 12" x 16" and these I painted to be your postcard from taking my trip through my paintings.

There were 10 barns, 10 dunes and 10 Chicago scenes.  It is hard to believe that this Wednesday the show comes down. Where did that month go?   So you still have a chance to go to the Chesterton Gallery in Chesterton, Indiana.

Here is a little painting that I did for my solo show in Chesterton, Indiana.  I believe this one sold already.  I haven't posted for a bit since I was sick.  Guess sometimes we just have to take it easy....not easy for me to do.  But I am feeling a lot better and Tim is now sick.  Now that is really for the birds.....

Chicago series VII

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but right after my big opening of my solo exhibit I ended up getting sick.  Tonight I got some meds and soon I will be back in the studio painting away.

I have some workshops coming up on Saturday and Monday so I better hurry and get well quick.

By the way, this is the Marshall Field's clock.  The store is no longer Field's anymore.  It is now Macy's.  They kept this clock and they still sell the Field's chocolates :))

This is the Chicago light house.  Wouldn't that light house be a cool place to have a studio.
