Art ideas and experiences

We went to Chicago last weekend and enjoyed spending time at the Elmhurst Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Chicago Art Institute. It's always so inspiring to see great works of art up close and feel the ideas percolating.

This weekend I had time to work on a 9x12 abstract using shredded pieces of nature images and start preparing for an "Art Happening" we're staging on the 9th at a friend's Victorian home. He has it for sale and has a number of empty rooms, so we're going to put our art in 4 rooms of the house and have invited people to see the art and tour the house! My husband just finished an alabaster sculpture that will have its debut that day. I plan to hang my 2011 work on the main level, my 2010 work upstairs and also have about 40 older works marked at SALE prices hoping to clear out my art storage area.
