The three drawings of the chipmunks playing cards, dominoes, and dice are original artworks by Chicago-based Kristin Swain.
Kristin caused quite a stir a few years ago. When the historic building in downtown Chicago at 209 West Lake Street was refurbished, workers knocked out a wall... only to find a second brick wall covered with an astounding full-sized mural!
The artwork depicted several goddesses in various incarnations. Some appeared strict and matriarchal, while others floated as if ethereal and angelic. Behind them strode wide-eyed dragons, alertly guarding their female masters.
Art experts determined that the work was likely a lost masterpiece by world-famous Austrian painter Gustav Klimt (1862-1918). Eventually, the real, forgotten story finally emerged. Kristin Swain had been commissioned to create the mural two decades earlier for a long-defunct nightclub. Along with assistants Peggy Robinson and Rob Soller, Swain free-handed the gigantic mural "in the style of Klimt." Somewhere along the way, between changes in property ownership and a rehab that covered up the original art, the history of the mural and who had created it was lost.
Needless to say, we're thrilled Kristin has permitted us to post her orginal artwork on this website.
All other paintings on this website are public domain works by deceased artists.
