Model Marathon

On Memorial Day The Palette & Chisel had its usual Drawing Marathon. 7:00 am to 7:00pm, no stopping, one model after another. I think the temperature reached over 90 and let me tell you, it was HOT. You didn't have to do anything and you were dripping with sweat. It was fun but exhausting. I felt like I was at one of those dance marathons like from that movie"They Shoot Horses Don't They" where you can't stop dancing or you're out of the competition and you lose (I know it was a depressing movie). I guess I lost because I quit at 4:15 and went in my air conditioned studio to finish up a painting. I'd have to pat myself on the back though because I was there at 7:00am pencils sharpened and ready to go.

I'll post a couple of drawings I did during the day, The ones I did before my brain overheated and I ran to the air conditioning.

Barns & Farms Exhibition

My Painting Entitled "Anya's Little Farm" was excepted into the Barns & Farms Show at the Barnsite Art Studio & Gallery in Kewaunee Wisconsin. The opening is on June 10th. Kewaunee is only 4 hours away from Chicago and 15 - 20 min from Door County. Feel like taking a weekend vacation up there stop by and visit the Gallery. I also have several other pieces up there as well.

Click on the link, go to Barns & Farms Exhibition 2006 and look for my name Marci Oleszkiewicz. Make it easy and look for the O's, the longest name there is mine.
