Blue Door

They say we do best at what we love and I have to say that you really do old doors to perfection!
Hugs,

I love doors too, Lin. This is beautifully done. You do a lovely job on the stonework too.

OH yes! old doors. They have so much character. I think it's the subtle colouring of your wall that shows such lovely aging. The shadow on the door is perfection I'm understanding the depth of that old doorway by seeing the shadow cast in rich colour on that thick wooden door.

Wonderful! You sure have a way with doors! Love the colors.

Lynn said...

This is just beautiful. The shadows really make the picture.

This "door" series is absolutely phenomenal!! I love the sunlit area on this one--an excellent execution my friend!!

Joan Y said...

I think you should do a series of doors Lin as they are exceptional. It's your ability to see the wonderful detail in them and the sensitive use of colors that make them outstanding! Love it!

Wow! Beautiful, I love the textures!

Oh wow! This is another great one Lin. Excellent work.

This is boldly drawn, and I love the light and shade, the reflections, the colours in the wall, the greenery tickling the foot of the door ... I really do think your door series is worth making prints from.

I think this door has a sense of mystery to it. Really great picture!

Donn said...

This is my second comment. Where do you find these doors to paint?
Trying to see if new profile photo shows up.

just enough detail to tell a story. I love all your 'portals', what a great theme you have going here!

Terri said...

Wow wow wow, one of your best yet I think. Love this Lin. :o)

Fabulous work, Lin! I love the door, the wall...everything about it. :)

Beautiful work on this door -- the light and dark in the door itself is really perfect.
