Story Behind the Painting

This plein air (from life) nature painting titled "River Trail" is of the Chicago River North Branch in Harms Woods nature trail behind my condo complex in Skokie (where Morton Grove, Glenview, and Wilmette all come together. I painted this the first week of November, 2015. We had a high of 73 degrees so it was lovely to be outside. On Monday (the first process shot) I actually forgot my brushes so this under-painting is actually a very Impressionist finger painting.
