This 16×20 acrylic on canvas painting was completed in January. It is a portrait of a home located in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. I inserted a little slice of Chicago skyline, visible from Lake Michigan North Shore, into the painting. Original sketch also had the El Train in it, but in the end we decided to not include it. If you look closely, you will see a black cat – one of the residents of the house – in the first floor window.
Here are the painting progress photos, starting with the sketch:
