chicago art show

so...back to chicago.  my husband is in a group show at the antena gallery in chicago, which opened at the end of july.  remember this post here where i showed you the behind the scenes pictures?  well, here's how all those pieces came together on the gallery walls.












my picture of the 4th piece was too blurry, but here are a couple of pics of the space before it got too crowded,  and i got too busy meeting and greeting.








the show runs through august 25th.  all the art works in the show are for sale, and you can see them all  here

well done, guys!

7 years

happy, happy birthday to my oldest son, zane.  one of the most mind-blowing things about having children is how time can go by so fast and so slow at the same time.  


 


7 years later and we have a drawing fanatic on our hands.   i've never in my life seen a child draw as much as zane.  here is his latest stack of journals.  we go through at least this many every couple months.  his nana asked him what he wanted for his birthday and he told her a stack of journals.






what's in them?  well, every single one is filled front to back with obsessive drawings like these...




or super quick gestural drawings like these...




can't you just see a gallery wall filled with these one day?  i can even see it as performance art because its amazing to watch him...he draws them so incredibly fast. 

this week...here's to 7 amazing years...and many, many more!

pre chicago

well...we are finally back from the windy city.  chicago was as fabulous as advertised, and my husband's art show opening was a great success.  we will see what the next month brings.  i had intended to show these pics last week on the blog, but an unexpected trip to the emergency room, followed by a 6 am flight, derailed my plans.  everything is fine now, btw.  but here is visual summary of the prep for the show!











i'll show you the results next week.

this week, here's to adventures...even the unexpected!
