One of the first days I was in Memphis I visited the The Pink Palace Mansion, which is the headquarters for The Pink Palace Family of Museums. Before leaving I purchased a book on the mansion. When I started painting these paintings I seized upon a motif from a photo in the book. It was part of a decorative plasterwork located in one of the rooms of the house. That is the basis for the image you see in this painting. I went with pink for the color of the motif since came from the Pink House Mansion.
