Art Friends, August 20, 2007

Hello Everyone --

Please join me at the upcoming Artist's Reception at the Caffé Luna where my exhibition, Sweeter by the Dozen, an impasto painting display, is currently showing. I think of an artist's reception as simply a nice little party where I can meet with friends and art aficionados in a festive atmosphere. It will be on Saturday, September 8 (that is less that two weeks away, can you believe it?), from 2-4 pm. The Caffé Luna is in Crystal Lake, IL, on Rt. 14, in front of Hobby Lobby.

Four brand new works -- The Baker, Cheesecake, Cheesecake and Pie and Cake Reflections -- will be unveiled at the reception. So even if you have seen the exhibition already or have looked at the works online (if you have, thank you so much for visiting), come to the reception to see the new works! And, there will be other surprises.

I sincerely hope I will see you there. But if you can't make it, I understand and will put the new works online after the reception -- check it out after September 8.

Now Online
Last time I mentioned that I was working on a commission for a good friend of mine, who wanted two paintings for her downtown Chicago condo. They are finished and are now posted online. At my site, click the Commissions topic.

Now On Display
-- Sweeter by the Dozen at the Caffé Luna in Crystal Lake (in from of Hobby Lobby) through Sept. 30. Mon-Sat from 6 am to 6 pm, Sunday 7 am to 3 pm. An impasto painting display.
-- America's Car I & II, car-art tables, at the Algonquin Public Library through Sept., part of the Village of Algonquin Public Art program, a year-long display.

On the Easel
The Baker is a piece just about ready to come off the easel. I love it because besides the luscious pie, the baker himself is present. But not in the way that you might imagine. He is a burly kind of guy who is shown as he just dropped off the pie and is hurrying off to other important duties. This piece will be ready for the September 8 reception.
