Story Behind the Painting

This original oil cityscape painting is titled "Kennedy Overpass" and is 12x9". The painting is of Cortland and Marshfield in Bucktown looking north at the Kennedy Expressway (Interstate 94/294). I painted this in 2 hours in unusually chilly Spring weather conditions on May 14, 2016 with the Plein Air Painters of Chicago. This corner is very familiar to me as I was standing across from the infamous (and beloved) former Leopard Lounge from back in the day. :)
