I can’t believe it’s already been a month since my last summer festival participation. There was little time to recover and shift right into teaching mode! Fall, Winter, and Spring sessions I offer mixed media encaustic classes at the Evanston Art Center and North Shore Art League.
My one remaining exhibition scheduled for 2019 is the One of a Kind Holiday Show at the Chicago Merchandise Mart. This will be my first indoor, holiday season venue in Chicago and I have been working hard on what to bring… what would fall into the “gift” category, and what would make my display stand out.
The 10 foot back wall will have over 70 Buddhas, side walls with miniature paintings in 10″x10″ shadowbox frames and nature inspired impressionistic landscapes.
70 completed Buddha paintings to date, (with a few more in the works) can be previewed here – 70 Buddha Oct. 12
The miniature paintings are mostly landscapes and places I’ve visited that inspired me, with a few other miscellaneous subjects.
I am looking forward to participating at an indoor venue (weather as a non-issue) plus exhibiting during one of the best times of year!
