My first open studio of the year featured guest artist Minnie Watkins.
In February, I finally got the last of the items at my apartment moved into my art studio.
I also got some great furniture from CB2.
It was just in time for the Fall In Love With Art Open Studio event.
My featured guest artist of the month was Lessie Venardo Dixon.
In April I curated a group show called Paradigm Shift: The Art of the Chicago Spring in the Second Floor Gallery of the Fine Arts Building. As you can see, Robert Sebanc has a very different way of portraying Mayor Rahm Emmanuel than Lessie does.
His piece was very popular with the audience that night.
It was a busy month, as I also had my first Doll Project solo show at Flourish Studios.
My featured guest artist in May was Travis Mitchell.
In June I went to NeoCon at The Merchandise Mart.
My featured guest artist in June was Ana Todaro.
In July I made a painting for a good friend of mine.
I also did a little interior design project at home.
In August I celebrated 2 years at the Fine Arts Building with a delicious caramel cake for everyone who came to my open studio.
It was also the month when my book, Post-Consumerism, made its debut.
September was the month that I finished Sapphire Desire.
October was a very eventful month. Because it is Chicago Artists Month, I spent a lot of time visiting other artists' studios and shows.
I celebrated Halloween at my October Open Studio with a little help from the girls of Monster High.
Speaking of dolls, some photos from The Doll Project were published in Graze Magazine that month.
In November I went to the SOFA show at Navy Pier.
In December, I sold ornaments for the first time.
2012 turned out to be a pretty good year. See you in 2013!
