Tucked away on the north east corner of Oak Park is Studio 736 and artist Galen Garapolo
Layering with a mix of paint and wax she spends her days with her cat in this peaceful studio.
Galen is about the 4th visual artist I have visited so far in my Oak Parkers project. Each so very different in their process and outcome. Some form an image of the final piece first others like Galen, to simplify it, go with the flow, each layer created as the medium hits the canvas.
With so many of the visual artist images of their hands are A Portrait of the Artist.
