Smiling and Sketching in Chicago

Yesterday, I had the privilege of working with the AHEAD marketing team. I introduced them to the benefits of sketching as well as tips and tricks for Urban Sketching. What a fun afternoon! Thank you, Marjorie, for the opportunity!

Summer in the City

Oak St. Beach, Chicago
It always amazes me when I sit on the beach in the middle of the city surrounded by skyscrapers and condos.

This is a quick sketch done at Oak Street beach in Chicago. It was painted in spurts while watching my granddaughters play in the water and attempt to build a sand-igloo. It's a different vibe than the same lake painted last week from a Door County perspective.

Ah, Wilderness!

Belle Maison, Algoma, WI

We're just back from a brief vacation by the lake in Wisconsin. The all too-short days and nights included kids (4) and grandkids (5), chaos and champagne, sparklers and shooting stars (Perseid meteor shower) and most of all lots of love and laughter.
