"Forwarding"

I'm back home and back at it - warming up with this new painting of some fast-paced walkers on the corner of North Michigan and East Chicago Avenue, part of the city's Magnificent Mile.

Chicago is my favorite city, hands down - always filled with energy and always friendly. I must mention, if you haven't been to the Art Institute to experience the new Modern Wing, it is a must-see. You'll notice works of art that have been in storage for too long and a well thought out rearrangement of the collection, proven to be a great way to spend a day or two. Make the trip - you'll absolutely love it.

I've been wanting to get to the Art Institute for eons. I need to spend a day there soon. It has been way too many years!

I really admire your work. I especially like how in this painting you managed to catch how fast paced this woman seems to be moving...

Karin--it is so interesting to me your choice of cropping the head out of the painting. It becomes then not about the particular woman, and the focus goes to her body language which is universal. Love the way you think outside the box (canvas)!
