In addition to the Black Cloud Art Bazaar, I also perusedÂ Park Schreckâ€™s galleryÂ on Friday evening. Through FUSEDChicago I had learned that encaustic artist Jane Michalski was exhibiting as part of â€œBoundariesâ€ with painter Ted Stanuga.
My shyness kicked in at this gallery so I snapped shots outside but not inside. Jane Michalskiâ€™s pieces are abstract with beautiful layers of colors. She explains her process here. This exhibit ends March 12.
The acrylics were mesmerizing too, a feast of textures and vibrant colors on a very large scale. I also examined the sculptures by Brigitte Wolf Â and work by Ray Becoskie in the back of the gallery.
In the spirit of day-to-day sign reading, I enjoyed these affirmations:
Of course my car navigated itself right in front of my biggest vice when I parked for Black Cloud:
Meanwhile, I am receiving so many lovely messages from friends and new acquaintances that my heart is soaring with joy. I had such a need for validation at the end of last month, and now it feels that even though the goals I have set arenâ€™t quite tangible, the energy to get there has multiplied ten-thousand-fold.
Itâ€™s like Iâ€™m getting this huge shove to keep moving, and not stop to think about all the fears and downers and coulda/woulda/shouldas.
Onward and Upward, as one of my favorite entrepreneurial mentors says. 🙂
