Upcoming Winter Exhibitions

I can't believe its less than a week until Christmas and before you know it 2014 will be here. I have been fortunate to have found gallery representation and look forward to being one of two new artists at Chicago Art Source Gallery. I also received word my photograph was accepted into "Winter Visions", Copley Society Members' Winter show.

The photo accepted into the Copley show was a first for me... I usually only submit encaustic paintings but had decided this photo captured the essence of a winter vision and the jurors must have agreed.

The last painting I completed for the Chicago Art Source Gallery show was a night scene at Comiskey Park. The piece below was one of 15 the gallery manager choose for the January show and although I would like to spend more time painting night scenes, it will have to wait until after the new year.

So much has changed for me this past year, I plan on writing about the year in review some time next week. Doing that always helps me to see where I am at with my art and what direction I want to move toward in the coming new year.


  1. Comiskey Park? So you are a White Sox fan? With Chicago having two ball teams, I am so used to people finding the artistry in Wrigley Field with its ivy and history! Me? I am a fan of both teams but alas, most people land firmly on the side of one team or the other! I love this encaustic painting and it brings back my younger years when I loved to go to ball games just for the pleasure of watching the game!

    1. Sure glad you know how to spell Comiskey (I corrected spelling above, thank you). I live near Wrigley Field but have only seen the White Sox play since moving back. I suppose painting Wrigley is going to have to be on my to do list!

  2. Lovely job on the night stadium, look forward to your self review soon!

  3. So many new works--Chicago definitely energized you. I look forward to your review, too.

    Beautiful photo of winter.
