About This Image

When the opportunity presents itself, I love the chance to capture images like this Chicago Skyline print. The sight of city lights rising up against dusk skies is just uniquely beautiful. It fills me with the same childish awe as seeing Christmas tree lights each year. And well, when those beautiful skies and lights are reflected in water as in this Chicago print, well, that’s just a huge bonus.

The Chicago skyline with all those towering skyscrapers over lake Michigan is innately magical. But I was fortunate that on this particular night the wispy clouds led to a fantastic mix of blues and pinks streaked through the dusk skies. Dusk blue is one of my favorite colors and I would have been happy for that, but as I saw the clouds gather over the city just before the sunset, I knew the dusk sky in this Chicago Skyline print was going to be much more special.

You can plan to be there at dusk, but you can’t plan skies like the ones I saw over the Chicago Skyline from Navy Pier that evening. This was a special treat for me and has made this one of my more popular skyline prints. It’s funny that when I arrived at Navy Pier that afternoon, I had no firsthand knowledge of the place. The day before I left on a business trip to the city, I looked at a map of the waterfront to try to find a place to see the city lights of Chicago.

It turned out to be a magical place to see the Chicago Skyline. Just look at those singularly beautiful dusk skies. And check out those beautiful pier lights leading the eye to the skyscrapers ahead. I’ve often felt this print was the stuff of dreams hence the title. Sometimes I have to remind myself I was really there on that beautiful night in Chicago!

Have you watched night fall on Chicago? Or does this beautiful skyline print appeal to you purely based on that dreamy sky? I hope you’ll take a moment to share what attracts you to this Chicago print!

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
