Story Behind the Painting

This painting is one of my favorite types to do - industrial chic with a minimal color palette. This scene is of a typical Chicago alley behind the brownstones; this one was in the Edgewater neighborhood I'm in probably the most often. I was attracted to the strong light and electrical wires hanging like festive holiday garlands.
