'call me a taxi...okay...you're a taxi!' by myra anderson...

'lady on red...pink flower' by myra anderson
Sara Giles
Lipstick, nail polish, ice skater, coffee cup, roses, a poodle and yes a taxi...are some of the things that I painted this past week.  You know it's interesting...you wouldn't believe it now (lol!) but I was in this very room overlooking this very building in Chicago a long time ago!  The artist Darren Thompson (below) is from my hometown Chicago.  Here is a very interesting snippet from an interview...

Interesting! The sum of his work is historical (is that the right word?) as well as amazing.  I have seen those buildings.  I have walked down those streets.  I have rode the very trains depicted in his paintings. 

I also love his wonderful brushwork.  I will show you more of what I painted next week!
