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!
I used acrylic paint for finished paintings in Arizona, because I was in a rented house and didn’t want the fuss and mess of oils. I was surprised to find that not only does acrylic paint dry much faster, but that it also influences a painter to use different techniques. With oils, there is time to soften edges, play with the paint, blend colors, scrape and wipe out. With acrylic, the painter doesn’t have this luxury. Instead, you have to work quickly, and I found that acrylics lend themselves to harder edges, more glazing colors over each other, and brighter colors. Which way is better? What do you think? Compare my landscapes, all done in oils, with my latest acrylic still life paintings.

Just came back to the midwest from 3 months in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was so wonderful to be in the sunlight and warmth every day, vs the freezing cold and snow awaiting me back home in Naperville, IL. I worked nearly every day in my little studio space, enjoying the chance to be away from my usual responsibilities, and simply paint.
I created a series of small still-life’s, concentrating on shapes, colors, and textures. I used acrylics for the first time, instead of oils. I like the way they dry so quickly, and clean up so easily. I finished each painting with a nice coat of glossy varnish, which brings out and enriches colors beautifully.
