New Painting: Montrose Point

montrose point, acrylic on canvas - work in progress, 2010

This is a start to a new aerial landscapes series based on Chicago - specifically Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. This particular painting is a view of the Belmont and Montrose Harbors area on the north side. It's a great spot along the lake - beach, harbor, dog park, soccer fields, golf course, tennis courts, bike trails, bird sanctuary, and nature preserve. It's probably my favorite area along the lake with some of the best views of the skyline that you'll get.
