Here we are in August 2020 and I'd like to share some of my new work, etching and water coloring.  My etching aquatint "from the Goodman Theater" was completed early this year and was accepted into the  Annual Tall Grass Gallery Exhibition in Park Forest, IL

                            Grosse Point Lighthouse    Evanston, Illinois

The Grosse Point Lighthouse, built in 1873, stands on land that was an important navigation spot for Potawatomi, Odawa and Ojibwe tribes. In 1976, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, the first of 250 on the Great Lakes. Today the lighthouse continues to guide commerce safely into the crossroads of Chicago. 

It is also the site of The Wildflower Garden Trail designed by Jens Jensen and maintained by The Garden Club of Evanston.
