My new city scene painting, Trattoria Ten, is at Artfinder
https://www.artfinder.com/product/trattoria-ten-chicago-night-out-on-the-town/

On special occasions, I love to dine at Trattoria Ten, which is a top restaurant in the heart of downtown Chicago. So I knew I had to get out the canvas and paint this wonderful old Italian restaurant

Blue Flowers at Botany Pond, UChicago
 
This photo is of the fence and flowers surrounding Botany Pond at the University of Chicago, Main Quadrangle.  I live nearby and have often walked through and admired this peaceful scene.  The photo is now at @Artfinder, and also at GACI Gallery in Chicago

 Botany pond was originally built as an outdoor research lab by John Coulter, who was the first chair of the botany department at the university.   This art is from my Digital Gothic cityscape series that includes digitally altered views of architectural details, including the clock.

Bond Chapel Tracery In Gray  
This photo is of the tracery at Bond Chapel seen in tones of gray.  Bond Chapel, at the University of Chicago, was designed by Coolidge & Hodgdon (1925–26).  https://www.artfinder.com/product/bond-chapel-tracery-in-gray/

 It is an excellent example of Gothic Revival architecture on the Main Quadrangle.   The photo is part of my Digital Gothic series of cityscapes.  It  includes digitally altered views of architectural details, including the tracery. This artwork is also on view at GACI Gallery in Chicago, in a curated group exhibit.

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