CBOE Melody

Signed "M. Gaylor" (lower right)
Oil on canvas

The Chicago Board Options Exchange floor and balconies buzzing with trading activity is illustrated with vibrant energy and electrifying hues in this original oil on canvas. American painter Marcia Gaylor masterfully captures the excitement and action of options trading in a panoramic, bird’s eye view. The Chicago Board of Options Exchange, the largest U.S. options exchange and creator of listed options, is comprised of trading areas similar to orchestra sections. Like a symphony, each section synchronizes with the others to create harmony and balance conducted by the unseen hand of the free market.

Based in California, Marcia Gaylor is renowned for her historical scenes that capture the New York City and Chicago stock market trading floors and vibrant financial districts. Before pursuing painting as a career, she earned a business degree and an MBA from the University of Southern California, and her financial background clearly influenced the direction of her art later in her life. Most of her paintings focus on the economic history of the United States as she captures the financial heart of the country's largest cities. The result is a body of work that stands in colorful tribute to the economy and the power of capital. Today, she remains an active member of the California Art Club, Oil Painters of America, Women Painters of America, as well as the American Impressionist Society.
