I recently came across an old pastel I hadn’t seen in over 30 years. It’s like seeing an old friend. I painted this front door of an old house in Nashville which was affectionately and simply known as the Cedar Lane house. Many a traveler passed through this door. The 4 bedroom house was a base for many folks who lived out in the country and needed a place to stay for a spell while in the city. I had my studio there for a few years back in the early 80’s. My life drawing teacher Juanita Greene Parks had a studio down the block. I just walked to my classes.
