Abstract Explosions

As planes buzzed the studio yesterday due to the air and water show, I worked on these two small abstracts. I painted them simultaneously to give them a cohesive color scheme. The soundtrack: Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

Chicago Lakefront commission

The painting continues...

It's mid August and just realized I haven't made a blog post this month. Been busy helping out my wife with the Chicago Writers Conference.

Anyway, the lake/water is coming together and added some more layers to the ferris wheel and LSD this past week. Yesterday, I made some good progress on flushing out the buildings and beginning to add the details.

Next up: more building details and textures, the L train, and filling in some more Wrigley Field details...
