Open House : 2013
.. and it's a good excuse to show off
some of our best artists.
Many of our plein air painters
have depicted the famous Bean in Millennium Park,
but so far, this one is my favorite.
Who knew that frozen Lake Michigan could be so picturesque?.
Quite an accomplished painter,
and completely new to me.
I think she's from Dixon,
so she has a visitor's appreciation
of big city elegance.
This whimsical sketch is 100% Gil.
Lothar W. Speer
Another artist who is completely new to me.
He has quite a resume.
He shares a German art-school background
with many of the P&C's earliest members.
He seems to specialize in wrinkly old faces
(as well as facades),
so I hope he puts some of his portraits
into upcoming shows.

Demos were conducted
in both the painting and sculpture studios.

Mary wields a brush
like a master swordsman.
That's Misha with a cup (of vodka?)
and Del reflected in the mirror.
