A few months ago I was lucky enough to jump in on one of my dads projects. He is an artist with insane ideas, and over the years has created extremely beautiful things. His most recent project was creating a custom steel stained glass awning to put on the front of our cabin (which he rents out by the way). We shuffled over 500 pounds of stained glass from Chicago to Green Lake County, Wisconsin and spent 3 days installing with the help of my dads good friends. My dad hand cut each individual piece of stained glass to fit. The good news is, if I'm ever in a bind and find myself needing another stained glass awning, I'll know how to make one!
Happy to be back in the studio drawing! Here's a sketch from yesterday at Lillstreet
I was able to drop in this week for Lillstreet's Figure Drawing Class - If you're ever in Chicago, come and sit in! The models are great and the space is beautiful.
Tonight's model broke his foot and injured his arm while modeling at SAIC on Friday :( I can't believe that he even came out! I'm sorry to say that I really enjoyed getting to sketch those deep purples and yellows from where he is healing...
