Hello. I was just in Chicago with my daughter, Ellen, last week to visit the school. We had a great time with Adrian in admissions. We also talked at length with Professor Dunlap and sat in on a class with Professor Patterson. I'm curious to know if you take your painting class through one of the other colleges? Your painting is really lovely, you've captured the spirit of the original. You may like a book I found at Myopic Bookstore while in Chicago, it's titled Color by Victoria Finlay - A Natural History of the Palette. Best of luck to you. Sincerely, Jennifer Foley

Hi! Yes, it was my class you sat in on. I remember you two.
And thank you for the high praise!
The painting class was a Shimer class. We did original source readings while learning to paint.
Art classes are also available for Shimer credit at Harold Washington Community College, but this class was taught at Shimer by a Shimer instructor.


I love your painting.. it looks like it really took a ton of time.

A very poignant painting. A very eternal topic. It was ever thus.
