11" x 18" Colored Pencil on Paper
This is a representation of rural America sometime in the 1930's. Life was hard, but there was always beauty just underneath the surface. The original photo is one that my father took of row houses that where located in Kentucky. The original is black and white. Using this photo as my model, I created this work. The houses, even dilapidated, still have charm and an air of dignity about them.
