I've been working on this cityscape painting for about the last month or so. It's on two panels that I hung side-by-side on the studio wall while I painted it. A diptych is unusual for me as is painting the whole piece on the wall. Sometimes a piece starts out on the wall then I move it to my easel - this one I kept on the wall the whole time while I painted it. It's based on a photograph I took while walking around a mostly industrial area near Canal Street and Cermak on the south side of Chicago. Side note: there's a great little place called Lawrence's Fish and Shrimp over there.
