February 5, 2010 - Day 179

Acrylic on 250lb Bockingford watercolor paper

The start of a new series tonight on "Entrances". As I was walking through my neighbourhood the other day I noticed that some of the entrances to the homes really caught my eye. Some had bright colors and others had interesting items placed near the door. It occurred to me that these entrances seemed very inviting and seemed to say something about the owners of the home.

This is one of the doors that caught my eye. I think what I like about it is that everything around the door is grayscale except for the green door mat and the plant. It's almost like a black and white photo which has a few items hand colored. I really liked it. To me it says that the owner's of the home are simple no-frill type of people who are down to earth.

  1. I really like the series of doorways. They're one of my favorite travel photo subjects. Excellent scrollwork, Brenda. (I found your name on the Griffin Gallery site. I'm Justine. It's nice to "meet" you and see your work. Thank you for posting it.) BTW, the economy is killing the small arts market. Hang in there and keep creating.)
