Power Center

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 30x24
The Sears Tower, now named the Willis Tower, had the name changed under terms of the 2 million dollar lease agreement between the building owners and a London-based insurance company. To most midwesterners it will still always be known as the Sears Tower. But money is power, and in this painting the power lines converge on Chicago ...a not so subtle visual aid as to the center of power. chicago at night canvas prints

Chicago Fog

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 24x30
The fog rolls in from lake Michigan and covers the lower parts of the city while the tallest skyscrapers hold their heads above the swirling blanket. But the poet Carl Sandburg - Chicago Poems 1916, said it best;


The Fog comes
On little cat feet.

It sits looking
Over harbor and city
On silent haunches
And then moves on.
