You should do a wall sized tile mosaic based on this very interesting piece!

I wish I had the skill or patience to do something like that.

This is wonderful and so vibrant - just like the city.

Pointilistic. Are you related to Signac or Seurat, by any chance?

No relation, but I love them both. Along with von Gogh and Pissarro.

No relation, but I love them both. Along with von Gogh and Pissarro.

I love Pissaro, too... and not the most popular of his...

That must be why I love these so much. So many elements of those styles the masters had, but so fresh and modern as well, with lots of other modern usages mixed in.

Wholly your own, though! It puts one in mind, and yet it's nowhere near copying other styles.

They are lovely - do we get to see more of Chicago this way? You make it seem delightfully vibrant.

Oh, how lucky are we?!

The creation coming to life!

And how is your work space so tidy? Mine always becomes a nightmare within about the first fifteen minutes!

Good luck with the fundraiser... and Heartfelt Wishes for the outcome.

I'm a bit OCD about the art studio! I clean up every night when I'm done painting. Thank you for the well wishes!
