Sunday Morning at the Palette and Chisel in Chicago

My work in place in the Small Gallery at Palette and Chisel.

The exhibit runs through June 15.

The gallery is one of the former drawing rooms in this 19th century mansion.

The largest light-filled space, used for classes and for open studios with live models, is on the third floor, where the mansion's ballroom once was.

Reaching for Life

Oil on canvas, 30" x 40".

This is a painting that started from a photo I took of one of Pasadena's ficus trees.

I have added to it over the years, and decided to post the updated, and re-named, work.  (The first title was something like "Ficus on a Sunny Morning.")
