Once again, but with a moving twist, I offer a brief glimpse of the works currently on display (and for sale) at Cafe LuLu in the Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI. When you happen to be in the neighborhood – please stop in and take a look. My family and I had a great lunch there and this is a short video of the works. Please, stop in and check out the works, have a GREAT MEAL, and contact me when you are interested in the works. Also… mark your calendars for September 27 when the ENTIRE BAY VIEW Neighborhood opens their artistic doors to celebrate the artwork, artists, art galleries, and art spaces that Bay View, Milwaukee has to offer. I will be at Café LuLu to talk and chat… I hope to see you, and all your friends, there!
Racine Co. Fair… Day 3. Today I participated in the first En Plein Air Painting contest. There were 5 first year entrants and we were given a canvas and 3 hours to complete our observations of the fair. I thought about what everyone sees when they come to the fair and what the most common, every-year, and, to me, iconic areas of the fair there were. The main entrance and Squires Hot Dog stand stood out to me. Here are pictures that Julie took of the First Year WINNER! $40 and a great 2′ x 4′ canvas and the honor of being the inaugural winner! Thanks to the Racine Co. Fair for putting on such a great idea. There were a lot of great conversations and questions by the fair goers and other artists who took place. Julie, thanks for taking the pictures and for the 4 hours of painting time. Thanks also to Toni for talking me into joining the fun!
