Story Behind the Painting

This original oil cityscape painting is titled "Lakefront Skyline" and is 12x9". The painting is of the north view from the Shedd Aquarium. I was supposed to be inside with the Plein Air Painters of Chicago and Urban Sketchers for the February Field Museum outings, but we had a rare 60 degree and sunny day (Feb 20, 2016), so opted to paint outside out front. This was a 3 hour painting I charged through despite the wind and large crowds. I'm getting faster at plein air skylines! Lol!
