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.

Swings by Anna Rae

Feeling like Richter with my swing fromabstract realism to straight shooting abstract. "I would like to say to those who think of my pictures as serene, whether in friendship or mere observation, that I have imprisoned the most utter violence in every inch of their surface."
