Sloppy Sloppy!

Just last summer a property owner on the 4600 blk of Kenmore asked me to do a mural on a wall begins his building and Aster Playlot. The idea was to prevent the graffiti of all sorts from happening as it has on this wall regularly for many a year.

Well it worked fine and dandy cotton candy. The only defacement is the careless drips from the metallic silver paint used on the fence above.

Stuff happens, these guys were just a bit sloppy and maybe they rolled it from the deck and didn't even know the art was there, very possible.

I will touch it up. Some of the drips look kinda cool and actually fit, I put in some drips on purpose. So some will stay and others go no hard feelings, the building this is painted on Eastwood Towers was very cool to sign off on this, not their fault.

But fence painter technology.....its called a dropcloth and you guys owe me a case of beer........imported!!

Chicago Sans Lake Michigan

Oil on canvas 40"x 30" Artist: Jeffrey Littleton 2012

This composition is inspired by a road trip I took right across the middle of Nevada a while back. I travelled down US50..."The Lonliest Road in America" it has been called.

The two-lane cuts across the Great Basin, a former inland sea, it made me think about our Chicago without Lake Michigan. Years later I painted this...

"The Birdman of Uptown"

Photo: Jeffrey Littleton 2012

We have a new man of mystery right here in jolly 'ol Uptown. 

He must have heard of the Bird Lady and became envious of her notoriety in pigeon patronage. He moves in her favorite feeding spots...dropping his laden bags of the finest grain to the feathered and fluttering local pigeons.

As enigmatic as he is determined the "Birdman of Uptown", dapper and swift he drops the feed and makes his leave. 

Behold! Uptown has a new anti-hero and Patron Saint of the Feathered Flocks!!
