Thursday, February 5th, from 7-9pm, is the opening reception for a group show at the David Adler Music and Art Center. I’ll have five paintings, including three new pieces which have never been exhibited before. Below is one of the new pieces, Come With Me. This piece was one of three winners in the January Lake County Art League member’s competition.
I painted this in mid Autumn on site at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. I was high on a hill-actually the same hill I painted the Japanese Bridge from, but facing the other direction. It was an absolutely beautiful day; this time of year every day painting outside is particularly wonderful, because I never know which day will be the last before it is too cold. Prints of this piece are available at Fine Art America. The original is also for sale.
