These nine-year old girls liked singing and hamming it up with a mike. OakPark2So the parents got a karaoke machine and threw a karaoke party. Of course, what else is there to do! Next year, they may be into something else. Go for it!
And then you do need to have them caricatured by that famous artist, Whatsername. Now, this is Oak Park and we’re a couple of blocks from the Frank Lloyd Wright House and we’re in one of those fabulous, spacious, oak-everywhere old homes that are perpetually in renovation. I loved everything about this gig. The architecture, yes, but also the fact that the kids were so wholesome and genteel and I got to draw them in this glammed up way. What a treat for everyone! Including me. Oh, I also drew the two brothers and the mom ‘n’ dad. Thank you, Chris!

Rose H., a refined lady d’un certain age, owns a second home in the Rockies somewhere and has been volunteering at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah for many years.  I mention this to let you know that Rose knows a lot of people in the theater and film world and the arts in general.  Four years ago I did a benefit for the Hypocrites Theater Company in the Water Tower and among all the beautiful people mingling there and being themselves, there was Rose—being her gracious and generous.  She used my drawing for her Christmas card and hired me to draw her guests at the Christmas party in her well-appointed Victorian abode by the lake.  When she recently recovered from a medical emergency, she felt she had to let everybody know that she was back on her genteel feet and that they could stop worrying about her.  How do you do this?  Ta-tah, with a caricature by Katherine Hilden!   Great fun, Rose, and thank you for thinking of me.  Best to you!
