Hackett Looking North, Plein Air painting of Milwaukee's Eastside

Hackett Looking North

This Plein Air painting created during the last week of May 2008, during the Downer Avenue Plein Air Painting Competition is a companion piece to the work "Looking East on Belleview".

This cityscape painting, "Hackett Looking North" shows the classic Milwaukee Eastside neighborhood lined with lush canopy of trees covering walks edged by gardened lawns. This morning light cityscape captures the cool shadows over the path which can lead to shops or the expansive Lake Park within minutes.

This painting was sold at the silent auction of the Plein Air event. 30% of the sale, the artist Judith donated to Artist Working in Education, a nonprofit organization that sponsors artists to work creatively with children to enhance human potential, advance learning and cultivate community.
