The Lupe Carroll Band, as always, put on a great show this year! Other artists featured here from this year's fest are Brent Johnson & the Call Up, Kathy Dummer, Frank, my friend Alicia Post, and the Intrinsic Arts Performers. I had a great time walking about the grounds this year and revisiting the unique character and talent Kankakee always has to offer!
My first ever oil painting won Best of Show at the Illinois Governor State's art exhibition this past Saturday! The painting was a focus study on color expressionism and is a portrait of my friend's dog, named Bullseye. What are those adorable puppy eyes saying to you?
Update: I had this painting up for sale for some time, but I've recently decided to keep it. Also, my family loves it so much they wouldn't let me sell it anyway. Feel free to contact me for commissions!
