A beautiful sunset as we were driving back to Cory’s after attending the Friday night Opening Party in Aurora. A nice kick-off for the NORTHERN ILLINOIS POTTERY TOUR… lots of pots & friendly potters. And a bonus sunset to cap off the night!!!

So I decided to drive out to Hinsdale tonight to set-up my tent & shelves. Hoping to make tomorrow morning a bit less hectic when I bring all of the pottery!!! Beautiful sunset evening in Burlington Park… hoping for some good weather this weekend?! Fingers crossed…

Driving home from Hinsdale… and treated to a beautiful sunset & scenic view of Buckingham Fountain. Another reminder of why I love living in Chicago so much. Simply beautiful… and a great way to “end” day one of the Hinsdale Fine Arts Festival.

Headed home as the sun sets on the NORTHERN ILLINOIS POTTERY TOUR.

So much fun playing at the Sandwich location with such great potters & now-friends! Thanks to Cory for hosting… as well as Kenyon, Lindsey, Linda & Nancy (Burt) for making it such a fun weekend!

Driving north to Minneapolis last Thursday was so much fun… I love a good road trip… especially when you’re driving into the sunset. Plus great tunes on the radio & snacks on the seat next to you!!!

Dark & gloomy with a lot of clouds… and a very small sliver of possibility. I kept hoping that the sun would peek through… but alas, it was just clouds. Plenty of gray clouds & serene reflections.

Urban sunset tonight… colorful changes two minutes apart.

A room with a view… and a view with a room?!

As we were getting ready to start class tonight, we were treated with a beautiful sunset. So this is the sunset view I caught from the Lillstreet 2nd floor rooftop… and a cool reflection while ON the roof!!!
