Iâ€™m fresh off a two-day encaustic workshop which felt like a fun crafting party. I chatted with my FUSEDChicago friends while implementing techniques demonstrated by Shawna Moore. It was lovely to deepen existing connections and to meet new people while exploring these new techniques.
I felt particularly celebratory after finishing a freelance deadline on Friday.
Meanwhile, my guest blogs are posting on FUSEDChicago about the photoshoot and an evening with Kim Bernard.
I was also made aware of the Chicago Contemporary Figurative Art group a few months ago, for which I wrote about a recent art gallery visit. This group supports the local figurative arts community, which has quite a presence here.
Itâ€™s been a great week. Hereâ€™s to more reasons to celebrate every day this coming week.
