This weekend was beautiful – not only was the weather perfect, but I got mostly everything done that I wanted to do (for once)! On Friday, I went up to the Plaza Art Fair. It was my first time there and it reminded me so much of the Old Town Art Fair that I loved going to every year in Chicago . Kind of a big deal in my head. Festivals are one thing about Chicago summers that I have missed the most this year, but this gave a little piece of my heart back.

Beer. Food tents. Crowds. Mini Sangria Pitchers. Art. Live Music. What more could you ask for?

I’ve been a bit obsessed with Dolan Geiman‘s mixed media work since I saw his art for the first time at the Old Town Art Fair a few years ago. I purchased two pieces that are still at my condo in Chicago right now (grr…) and of course, do I have any photos of them? No.

His Virginia Den Collection deer has been on my list for awhile. I actually think this was one of my first pins on Pinterest (back in the day).

You can check out more of Dolan’s work on his website, Etsy, Facebook and Twitter.

More to come on the rest of the weekend later!
