"Evening Flight" � Chicago Reflections Series
Like a beacon on Chicago's skyline, Trump International Hotel and Tower soars as a shining addition to the continuing evolution of modern architecture in Chicago.
My inspiration for painting "Evening Flight" is the gleaming exterior of the new Trump Tower Chicago. Its mirror-like windows, framed in stainless steel, reflect and seemingly intensify ambient light.
As the sun settles in the west, and other buildings darken in shadowy tones of grays and purple, Trump Tower brightens with colors reflected from it surroundings. As the second tallest building in Chicago, its most predominant reflections come from the sky.
I am reminded (from my childhood) of silver aluminum Christmas trees�illuminated by a rotating color wheel. Popular in the early 1960s, these trees were standouts in the windows of many department stores and family homes. The magic of the slowly changing colors, from red to green to orange to blue, dazzled onlookers with astonishing delight.
