Ms. Burshell says, “This “roomscape” interior was the residence of one of my good friends who had lived in the Vieux Carre for years! Her home had the innate charm of an aging building, chipped, exposed brick, layers of peeling paint, beautifully old and uneven floors, opening onto a charming small courtyard filled with lush foliage. Her home has been the source of inspiration for many of my pastels in the last ten years! What inspired me in this pastel was the warm radiance given off by the table lamp along with the cool light coming in the window, giving everything it touched a soft coolness.”
Ms. Burshell is also inspired by neighborhood “haunts”!
