Chicago

We were in Chicago the weekend after Thanksgiving, stayed a couple nights on Michigan Ave. Perfect fall/winter weather, wet and cool but not windy. Spent the day at the Art Institute, dinner at Berghoff’s. And walking, lovely lights and reflections. I love Chicago, wish I had a good reason to live there. https://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/1020587

Eastern White Pine Cone – Pinus strobus

I really like pine cones, there’s such variety across the various species. I like these for the shape of their seed scales, a wonderful drop-like curve. https://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/1020063

I-87 North and I-87 South

I-87 North is the road to Canada. I-87 South is the road to New York City. It’s mid-autumn in Upstate New York and mornings are frosty clean crisp. The daylight filters through the deciduous evergreen mix of forest, atmosphere thickening as the layer of mountains recedes. https://www.dailypaintworks.com/fineart/jean-krueger/i-87-north/772635 https://www.dailypaintworks.com/fineart/jean-krueger/i-87south/772637
