Tinley Park Art Festival

The art show this past Sunday went very well- the best weather you could ask for and just a nice day all in all. Hubby stayed with me til noonish and needed to get home to cut the grass, but returned by 4:00 again. He is such help with the set-up and also talking to the visitors who come in for a look. He actually did the Frankfort show for me when I went to the Calligraphy Conference in Minnesota! I thought the fair ending at 5:00 would be too long for the customers to still be coming, but it was Ok.
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.

Relaxing time is over...

Love this photo taken in Michigan on a sketch class 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...

Tinley park Art Show

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.
