Artist of the Month

December Artist: John Benages

“I am a retired physician and was past CMO of the Elmhurst Clinic. I have always marveled at the beauty of nature and the majesty of our state and national parks. This is where I draw my inspiration to paint. The majority of my artworks is oil on canvas. A few have an acrylic base and then oil superimposed. I want to thank Bloomingdale public library for the opportunity to display my artwork.”
