"On a Lark"

9 x 11"
oil on panel

I have my personal favorites in the Art Institute of Chicago - 'The Song of the Lark' by Jules Breton is one of them.  A picture says a thousand words...

Back when the movie 'Monuments Men' was premiering, Bill Murray, a part of the cast, opened up during a promotion gig about the painting saving his life.  You can read about it here.

Great job with this!!! Love the colors and the visitor's leaning pose and the hint of the other gallery. Just great! And I love the story you shared about Bil Murray. That is wonderful
