The show starts Thursday night with a preshow and dinner. Then Friday, Sat, and Sunday.
It's a show I did several years ago which was discontinued but someone else got it started again.
Location: DuPage County Fairgrounds, 2015 W. Manchester Rd, Wheaton, IL I've been finally making myself get back to work and have created some new work. I'll post photos when I can. It's these shows that seem to get me back on track.
Then Holli Daze on the first weekend of Nov, and the show at the Center on Nov. 15th.

Getting ready for the next show in the DuPage Co. Fairgrounds on Oct 23, 24, & 25. It's the former Carol King Show and if it's like it used to be, they have very upscale work. Hope to get going to create some new work.

The night before we had gone to the Gala at the Vogt Center and I highly recommend seeing the show there. On display is artwork by the lady who runs the gallery, Julie, and another man, Fred Holly. They both do still lifes, Julie also painting antique toys and Fred painting wizards. They are very realistic, with black backgrounds, some painted on wooden framed out structures like windows. Someone we met compared the style to Van Eck-sp? I'll have to go back and look him up.
We also talked to a man who does high end jewelry mostly out of silver. And we all discussed some of the art shows we had all been involved in. It was a very nice evening that Mick had never done with me before.

Love this photo taken in Michigan on a sketch class retreat...so relaxing. Just the opposite from how I'm feeling today. Running around trying to find something else, thinking about how the summer went by and I didn't concentrate one bit on a daily schedule of clean up in my studio. Well, now that's over and I have to make up for it...

Painted at Lake Katherine...somehow I've lost this painting...Can't believe I can't find it as it's pretty long and I'd think it would be sticking out somewhere. I'm going to be in the show this weekend at Tinley Park right by the Train Station and this has pushed me to get things together again. Haven't done much this summer with the wedding and the showers.
If you have time Sunday stop in. The show runs on Sunday from 11:00 to 5:00. There's a childrens art tent called Picasso's Playground that is always fun and they have food and wine tasting there too.

My sister Anne and her husband came from Naples, Fl, and her daughters flew in from Houston, Tx., Tampa, Fl, and Delray Beach, Fl. Mick's family came from S. Sioux City, Ne, and Minneapolis, Minn. One cousin, also from Minn, drove in on their motor home with their four children. Unfortunately Marsh's Grandma Boyd was recouperating from surgery and couldn't come and an Aunt who stayed back with her and her family. We also missed Mike, Vicky and our grandsons, Nadan and Connor from California who were unable to be there.
We're so grateful for all who could come and celebrate with us and miss all the family who couldn't be there. I hope they enjoy the photos that Mick took! I know I do!

This has been a busy summer with helping my Mom move into an independent living apartment. Everything has worked out well with the move, now we hope the house will sell. It was a big decision but was her idea. The apt is on the ground floor with a nice walkout patio door to a wrap-around patio, lots of windows let the sun in. My two sisters and I were there getting things ready for the big garage sale and it was nice for all of us to gather as that doesn't happen too often.

This time I'm planning on having the invitation printed on the sheer vellum and have it overlaid on light green paper. I finished the lettering for the invitation and will get them to the printer soon. Found out I'm doing fine with the deadlines -thought I had to have them all done to go out in June, but later in June, so that's good.
