Virginia Interior

Watercolor painting of a bright-pink bedroom with skewed perspective and flattened forms. Placed diagonally is a bed with a yellow bedframe and red striped sheets. In the center background is a blue dresser with an oval mirror, and on the right is a doorway through we can see a black-skinned figure holding something, possibly a baby.
