Main entrance at the Field Museum in Chicago
The Field Museum was one of the most exciting field trips I went on as a child. I have memories of an enormous dinosaur skeleton in the main entrance to the museum and today I was able to revisit them. I do have to say the skeleton I saw today seemed much smaller but maybe I just got bigger.
Yesterday was the drop off for the show I am included in this month at the Fine Arts Building. The gallery is on the second floor and the show runs through the month of September. Below you can see several photos taken by the other artists included in the show with me: Pat Lagger, Karen Tichy, Michele Thrane, and Catherine Keebler. Show information and a few photos of the hanging are below.

Mostly, I am anxious to get back to work. I continue to learn about the gallery scene here, attending art openings and exhibits when I can, hoping to better educate myself in where my art (and I) will best fit here. My younger daughter moved into her college dorm with my help last week, my older daughter moved in with me around the same time here in Chicago, and lots of changes continue to happen here. Looking forward to how all this translates with paint.
