In the painting “On the Train”, we observe a delightful moment in an old fashioned train. The car's high, domed ceiling and old gas lamps add an ambient element to the interior of the train, as we watch the charming carryings-on of an eclectic group of people, most of whom are friends of the artist. The "parrot lady" is an aspiring actress; the lady wearing a delightful pink flowered hat is the artist's best friend and a jazz/pop singer in Chicago. Each character is a delight to ponder, while all together they form a slice of life with all its fantastic and unusual qualities. If we look closely at the third train window on the left we can even see the artist and her daughter as they listen to the train's loud, melodic whistle and watch the old train cars go clickety clacking by.
