Well, my husband and I went to the Shedd Aquarium Art Sharks event Friday evening for cocktail hour. We had a great time walking around, sampling the tasty treats and drinks and viewing all of the amazing art. It was great to see all of the pieces displayed around the aquarium's exhibits. In the center of the Aquarium they have a huge round tank with gorgeous fish swimming around. Various artists were positioned around the tank, painting live for the guests entertainment. One of the artists involved in the live painting was Anastasia Makarenko who I met through Sacred Art in Chicago. Sarah, the owner of Sacred Art, is the link to how we got connected with the Shedd Aquarium. If you are ever in Chicago, you have to stop in and visit her amazing store. Anyway, my husband and I walked around for a little while and then we spotted my piece hanging in one of the galleries. I can't tell you how excited I was to see my Sea Queen hanging out in the Aquarium. I think she felt right at home with all of the fish. I asked my husband to quickly take my picture with her. I didn't want to be standing there for too long because there were a lot of people walking. So he quickly took out the camera and then started playing around with it. Lots of people were walking by and some were standing there waiting for him to snap the picture. That always makes me feel uncomfortable. I'm just standing there with a smile on my face and that funny look in my eye like, are you ready?. I stood there but nothing happened. He finally held up the camera and said, "Oh well, looks like your not going to get a picture, the batteries are dead!!" I couldn't believe it!!! For once I actually remembered to bring my camera to one of these events and then it didn't have working batteries. Oh well, it makes me laugh. Even though I don't have any photo's of the event, what I do have a wonderful picture and memory of the evening in my mind! ;)
