Inspiration in Chicago

I went to the Old Town Art Fair this weekend. It did not disappoint, but the rain did. It started to downpour as soon as we got there. All the artist's closed their tents. And we had to wait it out. It was worth the wait because the artist's that participate in this art fair are amazing. It's only my second year attending, but both years the quality of work blew me away. You should check it out next year if you get a chance. Then we were off to the Printers Row Lit Fest. where there are always treasure to be found. My favorite find was this children's book Tess's Tree Illustrated by one of my favorite illustrators Peter H. Reynolds. So all and all it was a very inspiring weekend and I hope to do some artwork this week while I'm still riding the wave of inspiration. I'll post it when I do. Have a great week. Happy Monday.


  1. Sounds like a great weekend! I will have to check out Tess's Tree ... yes, we love his books in our house!

    Looking forward to seeing what you make this week :)

  2. I really love children's books-I would say they are my #1 muse.
