Memories and Mobsters

I was lucky to attend the Chicago Sketch Seminar the second weekend in July. I grew up in Chicago and haven't really spent much time there since I left almost 50 years ago (!). The first day I meandered along the Magnificant Mile - North Michigan Avenue.

I stopped in to lunch at the Museum of Contemporary Art.





The seminar was great and I'm excited that next year's symposium will be there. In addition to sketches I did as part of the workshops I paid some visits to familiar locations - familiar because of plein-air oil paintings my father had done back in the '60's.
