New Work

Michigan Avenue

It's been a hectic few weeks, between family and Thanksgiving, finally I had time to paint this week. December is always a difficult month for me to focus because of holiday distractions, and this year I am also dealing with interrupted sleep. The building I live in is an old vintage building but the heating system was updated this summer. Now, the pipes bang throughout the night when it's cold. I am not sure what the solution is and the building management will hopefully figure something out soon. Lack of sleep is not good for creativity.


  1. Oh I do find all three of these pieces stunning, Robin. Maybe because of being a Chicagoan but they capture the stunning city we have here. Hopefully you'll get used to the banging pipes. I don't know if anything can be done about that? Maybe they aren't secured...

  2. I don't know if anything can be done about the pipes either, Sherry, but at least the building has brought in the heating company to try to minimize noise, it's kind of a work in process.

    I am totally enjoying the new Chicago inspiration in my work, glad you like it too.

  3. Too good Robin! The first one reminded me of Monet's Cathedral paintings. The aura of your work seeps in to my heart every time I look at it.
