Yes, I'm a romantic at heart. A painting awash in the warm glow of a rising sun with a classic female fiqure in the foreground, is my nostalgic nod to Romanticism.

The Navy Pier Ferris wheel in Pier Park was modeled after the first Ferris wheel built for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. It is the jewel of Navy Pier with its thousands of lights sparkling over the waters of Lake Michigan. Almost 300 people can ride the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel at a time, with up to six people in each of its 40 passenger gondolas. chicago art

The Brooklyn Bridge

This iconic New York landmark, the Brooklyn Bridge, ranks as one of the greatest engineering feats of the 19th century. The impressive bridge spans the East River between Brooklyn and Manhattan. The bridge officially became a national monument in 1964. Part of the history of the bridge is the number of times con men sold gullible tourists the bridge, convincing them that they could set up their own toll booth and make a fortune. I would never do such a thing. If you believe that ...I've got a bridge I'd like to sell you. new york paintings

This historic Chicago landmark first opened it's doors in 1921 and has thrilled visitors ever since. The last time I was there was for a performance of "Dirty Dancing", but the theater itself is the real show. See more landmark images; landmarks art
