|Getting of the train in Chicago--carrying WAY TOO MUCH stuff.|
|View from our hotel/elevator (we were not at the host hotel).|
|Craziness in the vendors. Note: I was so overwhelmed by all the vendors!|
|Phyl Brown from there's a Dragon in my Art Room and Cassie Stephens from Cassie Stephens blog.|
And yes, I was near the back of the room.
|Tiny little view of some of the 5000 art teachers there.|
And the lake.
|Such an amazingly beautiful lake view, right outside the convention center.|
|The Artisan Gallery was held in a very ornate and beautiful ballroom at the Hilton.|
Also nice that I sold a few Gelli-printed magnets.
|Box collaborative art in the lobby outside the vendors.|
|Oh, Field Museum! Terra cotta warriors! |
We drove by it on the shuttle multiple times and
then spent our Sunday there.
|I'd only ridden a city bus twice in my life before this.|
My fellow passengers didn't look as ecstatic as I do in this photo.
|I was totally drooling over these new sketchbooks |
that are soon to hit the market from Strathmore,
I can easily name 5-10 students who would LOVE these.
|Bill Strickland from Pittsburg--look him up, he's a life changer.|
|Stuff I made in the vendors when I was feeling overwhelmed|
(and my name tag).
|Sculpture I saw, liked and photographed on the street.|
Totally came in handy later when we were a teeny bit lost and needed some landmarks.
|Terra cotta warriors!!!!! Amazing!|
|Me + Herb Alpert sculpture|
|Taking the bus really pays off! Wandered by this 'Flamingo' walking to our next bus stop.|
|Getting off the train in KC.|
