"I cannot separate what I do
from who I am."
Dennis Downes, a watercolor artist, had an exhibit at The Grove, Glenview, IL. On Sunday, April 5th, I felt priviledged to have seen his work. According to his brochure, Mr. Downes creates his own paper from native grasses and his original paintings are displayed in homemade frames using porcupine quills and glass bead inlays.
At the entrance to the Lake Country Discovery Museum, Mr. Downes has on display a 16 foot bronze sculpture, TRAIL MARKER TREE.
