Slice of Life: Michigan Avenue Watercolors

Artist painting the Michigan Avenue Bridge

Our Gold Coast spy was a little out of her zone when she took this photo and sent it to us.  It shows a man on East Upper Wacker Drive, painting the Michigan Avenue bridge, the Wrigley Building (400 North Michigan Avenue), and its neighbors.

Hopefully he’s using oils and not watercolors, because at the time this photo was taken, it was pouring outside.
