For many years my husband and I have been really interested in, and have begun collecting painted portraits. We're starting a small collection which are lining our entryway and stairwell. Most of the portraits are vintage and antique portraits, but we're starting to mix in some new/contemporary works as well. A friend of ours who also is our very talented website designer, Kyle from Knoed recently posted on facebook a request for friends to share their favorite Chicago fine artists. It made us think about all the artists we've used for our interior design projects, and while some were Chicago-based, many were from other parts of the country. But one of the artists suggested was Tim Anderson, whose work we've admired for a while, and is of course focused on portraits. They're somewhat abstract but not completely removed from reality. And there's great range - some are more 'real', while others push more abstract. Below we've included a few of our favorites. We think they're just beautiful. Hope you enjoy them as well. Who knows, maybe we'll have one of his works hanging in our hallway before too long... Oh, and you can buy his work from Thomas Masters Gallery in Chicago Who are some of your favorite living artists? Anyone from Chicago?
