Winter got you down?

A painting by Oak Park artist Mike Riley titled “Community Pool” in the window of the Frame Warehouse, 346 Harrison, may lift the spirits.

“I started this Rheem Park Pool inspired painting approximately summer of 2009 (while my daughter swam), and finally finished it this month,” wrote Riley in an email.

Riley has an art degree from UIC and works as a state certified real estate appraiser.

So, when the freezing temperatures, snow and biting wind give you the blues, go see Riley’s painting and think warm thoughts.
