It started last summer, when Ana Guzman was riding the MARTA train to her job with the Internal Revenue Service.

“I started looking around and saying, ‘Wow, that person’s hair or the way the light is hitting that persons coat,’” she said.

Guzman is a Cuban born, Atlanta artist. She moved to the United States when she 5. And since last summer, she has been sketching people during her MARTA train rides to and from work.

“It’s those quick impressions that capture the essence,” Guzman told Lois Reitzes on City Lights.

Guzman’s MARTA sketches along with her Havana inspired oil paintings will be on display in her first solo exhibit “VIVA!” It opens Friday, April 6 at the dk Gallery in Marietta Square.
