There have been so many amazing donations over the past few days. I have to say, sending my husband to the auction to bid for me is going to be a tad on the crazy side. I took a bus to the near south loop this afternoon to pick up this piece, “coming and going #4” by local artist Darren Thompson.
He works with special needs kids at a technical school and agreed to meet me there. His work is so urban lively. I love the funk and attitude he brings to his paintings. This one just may be hanging on my wall on Saturday evening.
