Pullman Home by Anna Rae

This is a commission of a gorgeous rowhouse in the Pullman District in Chicago. This land was built by the man who brought you the most luxurious sleeping cars and the riot that proved unions had influence. There's a tour of the neighborhood this October:  Here is  the link. 

 

And that's Olive in the porch in her red bandana. Good dog. Stay.

Hart and Burbank by Anna Rae

I don't know much about this house. I want to say it's a week before Halloween and there's tissue paper and glue sticks astray in the romper room because someone wants to dress up as X The Owl from The Land of Make Believe. The end.

No Fence. No Neighbors. by Anna Rae

I spent some time trying to categorize my style because there is power in naming things.  This work is closest to what I've worked toward in painting outside of commercial work.  It's been awhile since I've released any of my private studio work.  I love documenting homes and faces.  I also love getting lost in a work with no visual reference.  I kept looking around for a photo to refer to and there was relief when I had to keep reminding myself that the only reference for this work is inward and abstract.  

 

Intuitional Abstract?

Emotional Abstract?

Cognitive Abstract?

Empathetic Abstract?
