Transitioning to Fall

 Dear Friend, 
Finally, the weather is helping us to avoid the feeling of being trapped in "Groundhog Day" and we're welcoming the change of scenery, outdoor activities, and new opportunities on the horizon. The throngs of tourists, usually just an inconvenience to us, have proved daunting with the pandemic and we're glad to have more of our outdoor activities back to relative peace and quiet for a few weeks. We know we're being selfish and constantly consider how blessed we are to live where we do and wish that those less fortunate could experience our same pleasures. We can't imagine how tough life is now for some and continue to do our best to help bring life back to normal for all.

While we don't have trips to shows or visits to and from family on our calendars, we do have house and yard projects related to fall to serve as distractions. Other than our nearby lake, we've not ventured from home due to the virus and mechanical issues with our van. We have just returned from a long-anticipated camping trip and so enjoyed the time away and hope the change in seasons brings each of you blessings!

Rachelle is still working on the next painting in the series which is Girl with a Pearl Earring by Vermeer. Works in this new series are available at $1850 each. (That's quite a few million less than the larger original masterpieces!)

The Exquisite Miniatures tour is now at The Art Center in Quincy, IL through November 4th.

It will be opening next in 2021 at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum at the Chicago Academy of Science, Chicago, IL. Please be sure to check our website schedule for any updates if you plan to see the exhibition in person.
