|Francis Picabia, Tetes-paysage, 1928.|
It appears that a lovely landscape was painted, and then the faces superimposed on top. The lines of mountains and clouds moving across the faces are lovely.
Okay, enough culture.
On the way back to the hotel, I was captivated by this storefront with the intriguing name Arts and Artisans. How colorful and inviting!
I enjoyed browsing, but most things like this silk jacket were out of my price range. It is a great spot to browse!
Charlie and I also visited Chiaroscuro on the second floor in the Water Tower Building. I had been there once before and loved it. We found some funny gifts for Dave's birthday. I did not take photos there, but they have a website.
It was a wonderful trip and I was sad to leave Chicago behind.

Chicago, Part II
Here is the continuation of my blog about our Chicago trip. We stayed in a hotel on Michigan Avenue and were able to walk everywhere we went. I very much admired the garden plantings on both sides of the street. Most were either raised on concrete platforms, or had low wrought iron fences surrounding them to deter doggies.
