I can't believe that I have not updated my blog since last September. I was busy teaching classes at the LaGrange Art League and painting at home a lot. There were many trials and errors in learning how to use different mediums and various additives in working with fluid acrylics. I finally have brand new paintings to post on the web site.
The Graue Mill Fine Art Fair held on June 3rd and 4th was very successful for me. If accepted, I will be participating at the Brookfield Art Fest in September.
Next year I plan on venturing into uncharted territory by applying to the Bucktown and Hinsdale Art Fairs.
I paint using oils with agroup of other artists once a week. It's the best day of the week!  I am trying to learn how to incorporate my fluid acrylic painting style into creating an abstract oil painting. I tell my students not to be afraid and experiment with your art. You will always find something new and exciting.  My latest acrylic work is much different now than what I did in the past.  I think I have reached a new turning point and I'm much happier with the new paintings.

Thanks for reading
