My Abstraction/Interpretation of a Black & White Walker Evans Photograph of a Sparse Bedroom

Mixed Media collage on canvas - 24" x 36" (?)

While visiting friends over Thanksgiving, I was able to snap a picture of this painting that I sold to them several years back. I don't remember the title I gave it, or the exact dimensions, but I remember I had a great time painting it and it came easily. I remember looking at a photo in a book of the famous photographer Walker Evans. I tried abstracting and interpreting the highly realistic black and white photo with texture and color. 

Does anyone know the name of the original Walker Evans photo? I borrowed the book from the library, then returned it of course. Maybe my current public library has a book with this picture in it. I'll have to check it out.
