Thanks to Zatista my painting, Winter Woods,  has been listed in +One Kings Lane  which is a curated interior decorating shop with an enormous presence on the web.  Thanks +Zatista

Winter Woods was inspired by my visits to the forest preserves in Chicago for cross-country skiing.

FOR #GoogleFirstFriday   #FirstFridayArtWalk  
Lift Bridges At Dusk, Calumet River  - My digital art photo portrays the lift bridges across the Calumet River in Chicago.

Many bridges were built along the Calumet River since its development in the 1860s. The Calumet harbor continues to be the region’s busiest port.  Since land and water traffic both needed throughways, this has meant the design of movable bridges. Land traffic was halted when ships needed to clear the bridge area. The center-span lift bridges can be seen with the Chicago Skyway Bridge in the background.  

I see the notion of transformation as being true of this region on a symbolic level as well being my artistic media. The vibrant colors in my photos represent the vital role this industrial hub played in developing the Calumet region.
