Art and Craft Show this weekend in Wheaton

Times are busy now getting ready for some shows coming up. This weekend is CHRISTMAS OF HOPE in Wheaton. Checkout their website: for more info.
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.

Plein Aire Exhibit

Stopped at the McCord House exhibit which had work from the Palos area. So sorry I didn't make the deadline as I could have submitted the Lake Katherine piece (the lattace archway painting). I have to try to push myself more to get my work out there. This would have been a great opportunity to do that. Yes I would have had to get it framed, but that's what it involves. The work there was OK. Some looked like they rushed to get something done. There were lots of oils with two watercolors by Lenox Wallace who I've taken classes with and they were beautiful as is most of her work. Both of those were from Lake Katherine as she did a workshop this past summer there through the Center in Palos.

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.
