Journey to the Promised Land 

 Acrylic on canvas  22”x 44” 



The first time I took in this magnificent view of Chicago, I was traveling by taxi from O’Hare to an advertising agency for a job interview.  I was so impressed by this skyline and overwhelmed by the possibility of joining all the commuters rushing into the city.  I got the job (I couldn’t believe my good fortune) and lived in Chicago for 15 years. It wasn’t until 30 years later that I finally got around to recording the scene. Some impressions last a lifetime. The buildings have accumulated, but the Sears Tower

(though the name has changed) and the Hancock building still command the skyline.
