I didn’t know I was going to get the chance to meet so many cool and amazing artists during this fundraiser. It makes me so proud to see what people are giving to this cause that they have made with their own hands. I was luck enough to meet Julianne Ingles of InglesArt at her friend’s studio and home in Lakeview. She has just returned to the states from a long stint in England. Writer and painter she was warm, curious about our fundraiser and excited to participate. It was very hard for me to choose between the 4 paintings. There were two that called my name. At first, the other was louder, but Bottle #1 shown here prevailed.
I am so happy to have met her. I hope to show her around Oak Park in a few weeks.
