Here is another view of the Skokie Lagoons, painted indoors from photos I took last week. I love this warm, angled light of winter. Here I’m facing west. I-94 is just beyond the far trees.

I watched a couple of interesting painting videos recently. One was part of an Art21 episode about Rackstraw Downs, where he reflects on painting the altered landscape. Another was David Hockney: The Bigger Picture.
