The Milwaukee River flows right through the middle of downtown Milwaukee. The Milwaukee Riverwalk goes along both sides of the river. There are shops and restaurants along the way. This painting is the view from one of the outdoor restaurants. The large buildings are actually across the river and appear as a wall to me.
I love cities. I’m enthralled by big buildings. I wanted to portray their majesty from a viewer’s sight. The painting has both geometric and organic shapes with the windows and walls and the seated woman. She adds interest to the painting.
