The above is entitled Chicago Thumb Wars from the Moments series of paintings on raw canvas. I started this body of work last year (for more details go to ART link on right bar). Below is Auspices -- both of these paintings were inspired by our visit to Chicago in 2010. I'll be starting back to work on this series next week.
