CHICAGO CLOUD GATE LANDMARK SCULPTURE by TOM BROWN

CLICK HERE for this 8x10 inch Original Oil Painting on canvas.
     I’ve wanted to paint this for years and finally got the opportunity. I have always loved the shiny chrome-like surface and the way it reflects Chicago’s famous skyline and the clouds above.
     “Cloud Gate” is a 110-ton elliptical sculpture forged of a seamless series of highly polished stainless steel plates inspired by liquid mercury.
     Beneath the sculpture is a 12-foot-high arch which forms a “gate” to the concave chamber beneath the sculpture. It provides an invitation to visitors to touch its mirror-like surface and see their image reflected back from a variety of perspectives. The sculpture is among the largest of its kind in the world, measuring 66-feet long by 33-feet high.
     This painting will become a memorable keepsake for anyone who has experienced this stunning sculpture in person, and it will add a touch of color and life to any room. Enjoy it, and thanks for stopping to look. Questions or comments? Email me here: tombrownstudio@cox.net
Good paintings at good prices for good people.
