Whimsy

A definition of “whimsy” is “playfully quaint or fanciful.” I think that aptly describes this collection of small paintings, on display at the Lisle Library now through the end of January. I’ve been having a great time creating them, using the simplest objects around the house or just my imagination as the starting point for designing the various bright and colorful compositions.

The Lisle Library, 777 Front Street, Lisle, will be hosting a reception on Saturday, December 7th, from 2 to 3:30 pm. Refreshments will be offered. So mark your calendars and hope to see many of you there.

Two Events This Week

Friday, Nov. 1st, 7 to 9:30 – Villa Park Library, 305 S. Ardmore, Villa Park

Saturday, Nov. 2nd, 1 to 4:30 pm. 95th Street Library, 95th & Cedar Glade, Naperville.

I’m really looking forward to participating in the two Local Author Events this week. It will be a wonderful opportunity for me to meet some of my fellow authors and for all of us to meet current and future readers. I’ll be signing copies of my newest novel, Death on the Danube, for purchasers ($12 each), as well as copies of the previous three novels in my Bella Sarver Mystery Series: Painting Lessons, Brush With Death, and Paint a Murder ($10 each). It’s going to be fun, so spread the word!

Sorry for the confusion. The artist reception at NUHS is this coming Sunday, Oct. 27th, from 3 to 5 pm. National University for Health Sciences is located at Roosevelt and Highland, in Lombard.

I’m excited to announce that some of my Fruitful Relationship paintings are currently on exhibit at the Caffe di Moda, 1012 Burlington, Lisle (right across from the Lisle Train station, Main & Burlington). The cafe is beautiful, the food is delicious and as an extra bonus, you get to see some gorgeous original paintings by some of the members of Studio 630. Be sure to stop by soon.

Pop-Up at the Pavilion

I hope to see everyone at this art show and sale in Villa Park, adjacent to the Villa Park Historical Museum at 220 S. Villa Avenue.  The Pavilion is right along the Illinois Prairie Path, near downtown Villa Park, and there’s plenty of parking.

I’ll be showing and selling paintings from my Whimsy series, which are all 12 x 12 inches and framed in either white or black. 

There will be 35 to 50 artists from Studio 630 and we’re looking forward to a fun and art-filled day.  So do plan on joining us!
