I’ll be revisiting the Chicago skyline again, when I begin painting large works in January. A few sketches have already been been worked out.
I love seeing the view of the skyline from Lakeshore Drive and 94. It looks different every time, depending on the time of day, light, weather and even season. What music I have on at the time in car even makes a difference in my perception. It’s a never ending inspiration for new directions in paintings.
24x48 painting of the Chicago skyline by Smigielski. An L train moves through the downtown architecture.
This piece was inspired by music. I listen to music while painting. The weaving rhythms and patterns of music inspire the strokes in my cities. The rising, descending, weaving train is the motion of a played note. The swaying buildings dance. This Chicago isn't grounded but floats instead, like music floating on the air.
