Watercolor painting of Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago
Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Watercolor, 11" x 14"

One of the greatest streets in the county is Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago. The most famous portion of the grand street starts form Roosevelt Road north up until Lake Michigan by the Drake Hotel. Arthur Rubloff coined the phrase "Magnificent Mile" to mean that portion of Michigan Avenue that runs north starting from the Chicago River until it's end at the Drake Hotel.
The scene before us here is in front of the world famous Art Institute of Chicago, home to some of the most famous paintings in the world which include "American Gothic" by Grant Wood, and "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat. This area of Michigan Avenue is in the heart of what is called the "Loop" which is the central business district that has many of the country's tallest building including the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower). It is fall in this watercolor and you can see that just a few leaves are left on the large locust tree that looms over the scene and if you look just above the lion you can see the fall colors still in place in the cluster of trees on the north side of the Art Institute.
