Irony is the blue shade and red trim of the home today is indicative of the leaner bluer times just after World War II. Post war jobs were hard to come by and building resources were even harder.
When they first purchased the house, it was an unfinished shell with one lone water pipe in a wall for the kitchen. Papa would later build the kitchen counters and shelves out of the wooden apple crates.
Over the years it has changed families and paint colors. But Market Street still stands as a simple house full of rich stories and a key part of life in Lockhart.
This is painting #12 in my series.
