Beautiful drawings! I hope our Chicago weather wasn't to cold for you. Did you get out before the snow dumped on us?

Rebecca thanks, since I live in MA and the cold weather has moved east, no it wasn't too cold, course we mostly stayed in. Our trip to the Museum was on Friday after Christmas and it was fairly warm that day, in the 40's as I recall.. I came home Sunday, so missed the snow in Chicago, though I have plenty of it here in MA after the past 48 hours.

So many wonderful sketches. Thanks for sharing. Do you remember what the name of the neighborhood your sister lives in? During the summer I go to the different neighborhoods and take photos and draw... Just curious :)
Above is another of my catch up Nature Journal pages. This one is about a year old and is from a visit to Daniel Webster, Marshfield, MA on April 9, 2013. As I recall it was a good day for a visit, the water in the Panne was high, note how much of the tree truck is under water and there were ...

Thanks, my sister lives on a side street that parallels  W Belmont Ave not far from the Belmont Transit Rail stop for the Red, Brown and Purple lines.

I think I was on Sheffield  (on the south side of Belmont) for the photograph as the one just prior and the one just after was of the Old Vic Theater another restored Historic building. I don't think the area she is in is a named district, but she isn't far from Lakeview (so may still be in the district), East toward the Lake. There are some interesting churches that are now condo's but it is an older neighborhood, her building is probably over 100 years old, but a lot has been replaced in the past few years by new condo's or otherwise modified. 

Over in Lakeview there is the park along the lake, and I think a marina, been a while since I have been over that way as it is cold in Winter which is when I mostly visit. North Broadway over past Clark (toward the lake) has some good restaurants if you make it that way or if you like Mexican food there is a Mi-Tierra on Belmont just a couple blocks further west from Sheffield.

Oh, Wriggley Field is one stop further north from Belmont on the Red Line at Addison.

Contemporary Abstract Encaustic Artist | Sketchbook Junkie | iPhoneography Addict | Journal Blogger
Introduction
I am an artist who is madly in love with encaustic and its range of possibilities as a medium. The unpredictable nature of the medium perfectly fuses with my messages of finding beauty and value in imperfection, impermanence and the cycles of life and decay.

It is through the lens of struggling through severe auto-immune illness and chronic pain, the process of letting go and eventually embracing the imperfection of life as it is, that I come to explore these concepts. Being able to find the beauty in these themes creates a point of reflection of deeper value and identity and enables compassion for humanity’s brokenness and imperfection.

I love incorporating rusty, broken and discarded objects into my encaustic work, and creating a depth through texture and distress and materials such as cement. Using encaustic as my storytelling medium itself becomes a metaphor in letting go and acceptance as the wax chooses the path in which it progresses during the fusing process.

Dear Rick Stahr (not sure if JR or SR), I cannot find a proper email address for this request so I am asking here... Please stop using my email address as your constant junk email you don't want to receive. I don't care to receive notices about your Tuttle-Ford appointments etc. and it is quite rude to consistently use another person's email just cause you don't want to receive offers from various companies. It would be just as easy to create your own junk email and less offensive. Thanks for your consideration. R Stahr
