Schaefer/Miles Oil Painting Technique Demonstration and Workshop at Rivellino School of Art

Schaefer/Miles Oil Painting Technique Demonstration and Workshop at Rivellino School of Art

The husband and wife painting team of Kevin D. Miles and Wendy Schaefer-Miles is unique in the art world. They are two artists with one vision, working side-by-side on the same canvas. They live to paint and paint to live. Sharing their lives on canvas; jointly producing finely detailed oil paintings of lush landscapes from their travels. The artists have studied the techniques of the Old Masters to the Impressionists and utilize these methods to create their own unique style.

fall_trail_web_best

Together, they plan the drawing. Wendy with her spontaneous free spirit takes on a blank canvas with gusto. Wendy has been painting in oils since the age of nine. She uses brilliant color, a flittering brush stroke to develop the basic painting. Then Kevin adds the light, atmospheric color and detail to finish off the painting. The unique story of their collaboration in Love, Life and Art is inspirational.

Enzo & Lucia’s Once Again Open in Historic Downtown Long Grove

Enzo & Lucia Ristorante & Café

Once Again Open in Historic Downtown Long Grove

DSC01763

Enzo & Lucia Ristorante & Café is proud to announce the re-opening of their family-owned and operated restaurant in historic downtown Long Grove.

On June 2, 2013, Enzo & Lucia’s experienced a kitchen fire that forced them to close their doors to the public.  Now, after months of tireless restoration and anticipation, the restaurant is back in business.

Enzo & Lucia’s is going on 13 years of great food and quality service in Long Grove, but this family affair goes back to more than 35 years in the restaurant business. Enter the restaurant and receive a warm greeting by cousins Lucia Cavallino and Glenn Cardelli. Meanwhile, Chef Enzo Cavallino and sons Angelo and Gennaro can be seen working away in the open kitchen preparing authentic family recipes including homemade pastas, fish, and desserts daily.

The Northwest Italian menu includes a daily risotto option, veal marsala, grilled bass, chicken vesuvio, fresh seafood, potato gnocchi, gourmet pizza, the house’s signature capelacci in vodka sauce and delicious desserts like cannoli and tiramisu.

Enzo & Lucia’s is housed in a historic, former Victorian-style home.  Features include a candlelit main dining room, located upstairs and done in warm tones, lit softly by whimsical chandeliers. French windows and well-spaced tables make for an intimate atmosphere; casually simple with a touch of elegance. The view of a fountain and flower garden spells romance. A kitchen table provides a glimpse behind the scenes.

Enzo & Lucia’s Ristorante & Café serves lunch and dinner daily with a full service bar.  For reservations or to inquire about their private party room, call (847) 478-8825 or visit www.enzoandlucia.com.
