Here is a studio painting from photos I took early last spring. The west fork of the North Branch of the Chicago River runs through the Techny Basin Conservation Area just north of here.

      Thanks! I’ve been reading up on the the Group of Seven and Tom Thompson. I love how they simplify scenes into big, vibrant shapes and I’m trying to emulate that. Hope you’re staying warm.
