    Description

    Chicago’s Oriental Theatre opened to much fanfare on May 8, 1926. The theater eventually fell into disrepair and was closed to the public in 1981. Rescued in 1996, Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley announced that the Oriental would be restored to its original grandeur for the presentation of live stage musicals. It was renamed the Ford Center for the Performing Arts in 1997.

    In December I attended a musical at this beautiful theater. Instead of the usual winter snow, it was a rainy day in Chicago, and this is how I portrayed it.

    Detail in Big Strokes

    This painting shows amazing detail (color, texture) within such beautiful loose brushstrokes. I love it!

    A Flowery Village

    This fanciful, flower lined village reminds me of a visit to Epcot Center in Florida a few years ago.

    Mangrove Roots

    A view of colorful underwater roots ordinarily hidden from sight takes on an abstract quality and I feel the rhythm created by the repeating shapes, patterns, colors and textures.

    From a Memory

    Can't you remember driving down this road? The artist creates that strong sense of such a memory with washes, few strokes and low value colors in a landscape painting that relies on keen attention to perspective drawing.
