A friend and I spent a week wandering around the town of Oxford, Mississippi home to the University of Mississippi and William Faulkner. While most of the scenes I painted were in oils, I decided to capture the town square in pastels. After many starts and stops, I finally finished the scene. One of the reasons that I wanted to remember the view was all the great restaurants that surround the square. We had some memorable suppers.
