"Abandoned Long-ago"

I love painting portals - gates, fences and doorways.  Artistically this doorway is interesting because of the various textures and the subdued colors and it has interesting historical charm.
The painting is 5" x 12" and is painted on 300 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper.  It is originally from a royalty free image from the internet, but I have taken so many liberties with it  - making many changes, etc., that I think I can pretty much call it my own now - artistic license, you know!!!

Dear Barb - you paint portals so well. Thanks for sharing your art.

I have a red door I've been thinking about turning into a painting - thanks for inspiring me!

Thanks, Debbie! You should definitely do your red door! Let me see when you are completed with it!
