This has been an unusually cold and unfriendly winter. There has been more aches and pains, more sadness, more gray days and gray hair.
Painting has kept me going through the cold and ice and family heartache.
I received an email a few weeks ago about a self portrait show and I decided to try my hand at one. My inspiration was this old door that I have had for a couple of years. Doors represent change to me, promise and opportunity.
I have entitled this painting “When one door closes…”.
I have always found another door does open. I have decided to let the viewer imagine what my hand contains. The possibilities are endless.
