Story Behind the Painting

I painted this piece to commemorate the great snowfall in Chicago of Feb 1st (Superbowl Sunday) 2015. The scene is just from behind my condominium building where I take my dog out. There is a museum next door which lit part of the white landscape giving it an interesting warm tone against the lavender background. I used a new and experimental tube of paint for this given to me as a free sample - Gamblin Portland Cool Grey.
