Cloud Gate Gown
Oil on 5x7 archival canvas panel.
This is yet another submission by me to Karin Jurick's Different Strokes From Different Folks. It's a fun challenge...she puts up a different photo each Wed. night. Artists from all over submit their renditions of it. The variety and creativity is both amazing and educational.
The painting is of Cloud Gate Sculpture in Millennium Park, Chicago. It is also known as 'The Bean'. It has the appearance of a huge mirrored bean. Quite a tourist attraction.
It wasn't easy to paint beacuse of the twisted, contorted images in the reflection. My solution was to simply 'paint what I see'...not 'how I think it should be'. It was great fun to do. Hope that you enjoy it too.
