On April 15-16, 2008, we had a group of visitors from Art on the Move that toured the Cornelia Arts Building where my studio is located. I had to give a couple of talks and answer questions about my work. I was able to speak about my newly finished commission painting which I'll write about later.
Talking to the tour groups was a good experience and proved valuable - these were members of the Art Institute of Chicago and people who collected art. Over the two days I sold four paintings and someone asked me to call them when I finished one of my works in progress.
I sold three paintings from my latest series of watertanks along with a view of the "El" from my studio windows.
