This is a typical residence on the North side of Chicago.  The person in the painting is watering their garden...I could never live in the city.  My deck with all my flowers is bigger than this...Happy Summer.

This is Chicago when you come from the North side of the city.  I live in Indiana so I am always coming in from the South side of the city.......my kind of town...Chicago is.

Streets of Chicago XXVI

watercolor
7" x 10"
cityscape

The building on the right is really unique.  There was talk that they were going to sell it or even take it down,  It may look like a cool building, but it is really hard to maintain the right temperature for the right season.  I was also told that they closed off the top floor to visitors.  There were a few people who jumped from the balcony....sad story.
