5x7 oil pastel matted in an 8x10 gray mat, ready to frame -- this oil pastel is one of few in this sale. It was what I call a memory painting -- when I see something and want to paint it but return home and work to get it down. There is an old house on the east side of Converse that has a creamy stucco walls -- it always reminded me of the French farmhouses I would see in WWII documentaries. When I saw this building, I had to come home and paint it because of the emotional response of the farmhouse by the edge of town and the newer building I saw while traveling.
