The Chicago elevated train system is iconic and winds its way through so many Chicago neighborhoods. The platforms create their own little micro-universes. There are fewer and fewer of these little dives which could be found under certain el platforms. This painting depicts the Wilson El stop in Uptown. This little diner shut down soon after I created this painting. I wanted to immortalize the uniqueness of this little joint.
