Cloud Gate--Challenge Painting--American Oil Painting

This little 5x7 inch oil painting was so much fun to paint. It is the result of the Different Strokes Weekly Challenge. Every Wednesday Karin Jurick posts a photo for artists to use as a reference for painting. They are then invited to send her their artistic version for posting on her Different Strokes Blog. This week the Cloud Gate Sculpture located in the Millennium Park in Chicago was our subject. Not only was it fun to paint, but it has inspired me to save up for another trip to Chicago. I haven't been there for a long time, but I recall there is so much to see in Chicago. It would be wonderful to visit again.
