This oil painting is an image of the Skyway Bridge in Chicago. The artist thinks of the Skyway as the entry point to Chicago, well known to cars traveling from the east. The colors and patterning here are bold, with the shadows and structure of the bridge being abstracted to a dynamic composition. Adding a gloss resin finish to the surface adds to the depth and gives the piece a jewellike presence. Oil on panel framed with a maple floater frame.
