You can't show one grandchild without showing the other. This is Fefe, short for Felicity, my partner in crime at Blick Art Supplies. Of course she needed more paints and had to use them right away. So here we are painting on the sidewalk right in front of their North Ave. store !
Creativity is one of the threads in our family. Both my children are photographers, and exceptional ones! This was taken by my daughter Cara Taylor, it is of her sweet little boy and me while we were walking thru Chicago the other day.

I have always had a love of architecture, especially when it comes to homes. While getting my BFA in painting and design I was seriously considering going becoming an architect. I have created a series of dwell paintings. I will be listing these in the shop section of my site. Most of them will never be offered as prints. This particular one is an oil painted on stretched canvas that is almost 2in thick on the sides so no frame is necessary, that being said you can always add a frame at a later date.
Summer.... . What was that old song?
"The Summer Wind" Frank Sinatra sang it ...
"The Summer wind came blowing' in from across the sea
It lingered there, to touch your hair and walk with me
All summer long we sang this a song and then we strolled that golden sand
Two sweethearts and the summer wind..
I must have been channeling that when I painted these tulips as they moved in so effortlessly in the vase. Think I'll play that with some other similar summer love songs.

St. Mary's Abbotts Kensington London UKRead More
St. Mary's Abbotts was founded in 1539....can you imagine all that it has seen, celebrated and endured. And what was the central theme of the prayers that were said while sitting in this pew?
The guards of St. Mary's Abbot LondonRead More
A few months ago I was so very fortunate to go to London. I went with a friend who had been there often, so that made it all the better. Daily we walked by this magnificent Church located in extremely busy area of Kensington. It was Armistice Day when I took these photos, locals were gathered outside the front of the Abbot to say prayers and pay tribute to all those who fought in the wars. From there we went to Trafalgar Square and the surrounding area where the brave men and women who fought in the wars were meeting with friends, drinking and singing as they stood outside the pubs. Armistice Day was celebrated in London with the reverence and grace it deserves.
Every living thing falls in love in Paris. Especially in front of the Eiffel Tower
A while ago I decided to do a series. The series subject matter is bizarre, yet fun objects that make us smile. I am thinking of calling it Make me smile or Warm my heart or Make my heart smile. What do you think would be a good name?

I found this powerful stone gate while on a walk in the North Shore community of Chicago. I loved the moss in the crevasses and the worn stone. There are so many of these hidden gems, just take a moment to admire and study them.
