The Door Between

The Door Between, watercolor, 7.5x10"

A number of years ago I did a series of door paintings. I have always enjoyed looking at doors and wondered what they lead to and the stories that go with them. This door is in Victoria's Chinatown. It was tucked between two shops and is quickly missed. As I walked by it I wondered about the families that most likely passed through these doors over the years. It was fascinating to me and I decided to paint is as part of the show for the Noodle Box.

Leslie, I share a similar fascination for doors. I like really old ones.
You achieved great textures in this painting and the reflections in the glass are beautifully painted. I really enjoy your work.

I really like how you have painted this door :) I too have a fascination for doors and like you I always wondered about the stories the doorways held. I have been photographing doors but yet to paint any.

Thank you all for your kind words. It seems like as artists we like to help tell a story to others. I hope that you are able to paint your own doors.
