13Alina2bWhile I was drawing the third couple under the maple trees in the back yard, someone commented on the dark 13Alina2clouds that were suddenly pulling over us.  Within five minutes it came down in buckets.  With help, I managed to rush my materials—wet paper does not like to be drawn on—into the house.  The formal table settings outside could not be rescued. ..a pathetic scene.  Within minutes the power went out in the house.  The hostess suggested that I set up in the play room by the window, though not much light came in there because of the dark weather.  I 13Alina10KEH2pulled out my night-hiker’s light and carried on.  Someone said, I looked like a miner.  We improvise!  The show must go on.

I’ll show some of the picture, but this time in scrambled order—to reflect the feeling of that afternoon.

13LangCoupleExpecting

If you scroll down in this blog you’ll notice that baby showers are becoming something of a specialty for me.  I welcome this 13LangCplExpectBIGdevelopment in my career.  I love drawing the pregnant couple with the Out! Out! speech bubble  over the tummy and mommy’s dress will be either pink or blue, depending on who’s expected. And, of course, everybody is so UP and excited with expectation.

Here’s what the host and expectant father  wrote about be in his feedback to the party planning agency through which he had found me:  ” Katherine arrived 30 min early just as she said to set-up, she was very warming, and full of excitement while interacting with people she was drawing. Her work is truly special and unique!! She managed to capture the personalities of everybody she worked with in her drawings!! I without a doubt know that she took the party from good to great with her drawings, energy, and most importantly her professionalism. I look forward to having her at all of my events in the future, she’s just that good!! Thank you  [party planning agency] and a very special thank you to Katherine Hilden you are truly a great talent, artist, and person, thank you.”

Thank you, David!  Best to you, Dominique and the baby girl!

12AnishCouple6babyBIG

This baby shower was held at the Indian Garden Restaurant in Schaumburg.  I would ask one of these upscale couples, “where did you meet?” and the answer might be “Paris” or “London.”

12AnishCouple6So, “upscale” is putting it mildly.  The ambient language, however, was Hindi.  When I asked the host, whose name was Anish, whether he knew Anish Kapoor, he said,” oh, the bean guy?”  Yes, the bean guy, the brilliant artist who designed “Cloud Gate”—the  bean—in Millenium Park.   And yes, Anish means “supreme.”

For an elegant event, caricatures—my caricatures—are a perfect form of entertainment.  People often tell me that my drawings are not the usual amusement park fare.  Thank you.  I come from a fine art background and I guess it shows.

So, about elegance.  The banquet chairs covered in white satin with lavender bows, delicate food, subdued conversation—I love this kind of setting.  Did you know, you can be elegant and still throw your head back in laughter when you see your Hilden Caricature?  Thank you, Shakenya and David!  Best to you and the baby!

If I lived in or near Milwaukee, the Anaba Tea Room on Capitol Drive would be a regular hang out for me.

As it is, I’ll have to wait for another party in that lovely space.  I was up there three weeks ago for a baby shower with twenty  guests and I drew all of them in three hours and in color.

I had come early and was able to enjoy the tranquil setting and learn all about that fantastic plant the Chestnut Vine, which encircles the light well in the center of the building.

Thank you, Anne.  Best wishes to you, Laura!
