This is one in a series of four original oil pastels whose images come from Washington's Mount Vernon estate in Virginia. This image is from the slave entry walkway to the mansion. I tried to play up their abstract qualities of the images and their shadows on a sunny day. Framed dimensions are 29" X 28 1/2."
"Mount Vernon Memories IV"
This oil pastel has been framed with Conservation Clear glass which helps to filter out most UV rays. The frame requires occasional dusting with a lint-free cloth. Window cleaner may be applied to the glass with a clean, soft absorbent cloth. Spray cleaner the on cloth, not directly on the glass.
Even though this glass has UV protection, NEVER put art in direct sunlight. Direct UV rays can bleach the color over time. ALWAYS keep art in cool, dry climate controlled spaces. Humidity and temperature extremes are harmful to the art.
