Longtime Winfield artist shares her work at Wheaton coffee shop
WHEATON – After painting for almost 70 years, 90-year-old Winfield resident Margaret Schwicardi hasn't tired of one of her favorite pastimes yet.
During the month of April, many of her paintings could be seen hanging on the walls of La Spiaza coffee shop in downtown Wheaton. Her specialty is barns set in rural landscapes; she reads and researches as much as she can about these structures, which were some of the first built by settlers to the U.S.
"It's what I could do and what I enjoyed doing," Schwicardi said.
