Story Behind the Painting

This vibrant oil painting is titled "Bright Block" and is 11x14. The painting is of the Cafe Jumping Bean on 18th Street in the trendy southside Chicago neighborhood, Pilsen. There are many historic and newly painted colorful storefronts and bars in Pilsen. I painted this scene during a longer 5 hour paint out with the Plein Air Painters of Chicago.
