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
