I've been doing Inktober, for the 2nd year in a row. The goal is to create & post an ink drawing for every day of October. I've been posting them all on my Instagram and my Facebook art page. I'm almost done! This weekend, I sketched with my Saturday morning art group in Oak Park and completed these 2 urban sketches- sketched from life of the scene in front of me at the cafe.

I enjoy drawing, painting, and sculpting from direct observation - both in the studio and plein air. I also like to experiment with different tools and techniques. Following my blog will allow you to see examples of my work in progress and read about what was happening as I made them.
Spent the morning painting with friends from Oak Park & the PAPC.
I painted this morning at Buckingham Fountain, Chicago Fall 2017. Plein air oil, alongside friends from the PAPC.
The Green Mill is famous as a Speakeasy during Prohibition and as the location for perhaps the best Jazz in the world. If I recall family history, "Mr Brown" (Al Capone) bought my grandfather, and everyone else in the club, a beer here.
I was happy to take the opportunity to paint here with a friendly group I hadn't seen in a while. The weather perfect and the neighborhood friendly.
I've been drawing, painting, and posting on a daily basis - but it's hard to juggle so many Social Media accounts. My Instagram account, as MotionImpossible https://www.instagram.com/MotionImpossible , is probably the most up to date. Please check out my work there too.
