Hallmark Illustrator, Craig Lueck, shared his amazing watercolor talents by splishing and splashing his brushes in water and paints. The end result, is an impressionistic masterpiece of the Chicago skyline. I fabricated the door out of exotic hardwood to give his wet-on-wet saturate work a timeless feeling. Craig Lueck is an amazing artist, father, husband and caring giving man who freely offered his time and talent to make this door absolutely stunning.
80 unique doors will be showcased on two gallery walls in the main public area of the Ronald McDonald House being built in the heart of downtown Chicago near Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. The doors are meant to symbolize the philosophy that ” The doors of Ronald McDonald House are always open for you.” To learn more click on the following links:

Watercolor process: Wet-on-wet technique is a process where paper is dampened and stretched, then soaked. The artist then works against the clock, applying pigments and easing, pushing, and cajoling as the water dries. If this race between painter and medium is in harmony, the results can be luminous.
