Last month I attended an art opening at Marion Street Gallery where Susan Hong-Sammons was displaying her art. Susan has been a blogger friend of mine for quite a while. I've always admired the fact that she and Karen Phipps brave the elements and paint plein air in all kinds of weather, including our freezing cold Chicago winters.
Susan's paintings are stunningly beautiful in person and they give off a kind of energy in the room. I was encouraged to join this charming gallery with my own work and this month (last Friday) I put up six of my own paintings. Thank you, Susan!
If you're in the Chicago area, please stop by the Marion Street Gallery. The next artist's opening will be December 10th and should be quite the holiday gala!
