August 2020

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

I have three new images featuring favorite locations around Evanston
  • a Watercolor of The Grosse Point Lighthouse in Evanston on Lake Michigan is featured in a set of 8 note cards (larger A6 size).
  • a Watercolor of HECKY'S Barbeque in Evanston is also a part of my tribute to Evanston.  These are  also on a larger A6 size card.
  • The Alice Millar Chapel on the Northwestern University campus are  also featured on a larger A6 size cards
Sets of 8 cards with a mix of these 3 images can be purchased for $22.

  • The newest water color of the Evanston Grosse Point Lighthouse is a part of my note card collection.

                            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.
