"Green River" - 24x18" Chicago Painting Paper Print

\"Green River\" - 24x18\" Chicago Painting Paper Print


This huge 48x36" painting depicts Upper Wacker Drive and the Chicago River in the late afternoon. It is a scene from the Purple Line CTA when the lights have just come on, yet there is still daylight - a beautiful time of day to appreciate the skyscrapers and famous architecture.

Some of the buildings included in this view are the RR Donnelley Building, the Leo Burnett Building, Hotel 71, Marina City, and the former Traffic Court Building.

The painting is titled "Green River" for two reasons: first because Wacker Drive is kind of the Wall Street of Chicago, and secondly because we ceremoniously die the river green on St. Patrick's Day.

"Green River" is now available as a half size 24x18" giclee print. Giclee printing is currently the highest quality standard for printing single or limited edition prints on paper or canvas. The term "giclee" (pronounced "ZHEE-CLAY") is a French word meaning "to spray." Giclee prints are created by spraying millions of droplets of ink onto your choice of fine art substrates.

Unlike lithographs and serigraphs, giclee prints have undergone extensive third party fade testing. While the predicted display life depends on many variables, giclee prints made with wide-gamut pigmented inks are estimated to last over 80 years without noticeable fade.

High grade, smooth finish paper is used for prints, picking up all the detail of the original canvas. Only 100 are produced in this series. Each paper print is signed by Joy in pencil in the lower left-hand corner with title in middle and edition number in the right.
