The real thing, where trees are budding, daffodils and tulips are blooming, not peeking chilled through a layer of snow.
I can now cheerfully segway to the beginning of summer and the start of the outdoor art fairs in the Chicagoland area. No, I am not wishing my life away, since the anticipation is a unique delight in it's own right.
My protagonist is an artist. I have no such talents, but I do love and appreciate the effort and talent it takes to start with a blank canvas and create...Come to to think of it, it is not unlike a blank page that will be filled with words...hmmmm, I do see similarities.
If you see an art theme here, do not despair, next week I'll write about the creation of my website, but I digress, back to art.
If you find yourself in my neck of the woods this summer, I can recommend the Evanston, The Glen , Oak Brook and my all time favorite the Highland Park fair. If anyone is interested, I will post the dates of the events, once they are available.
I do tend to stay in the suburban area, since the Chicago fairs have become so crowded, it is difficult to really see anything, much less chat with the artist.
