The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. - Marcel Proust

The Red Door

Sunday afternoon's painting is done from a photo I took while my husband and I were in Rome years ago.  It's an 8x10 and started as a knife painting. However, I've discovered that extremely smooth surfaces don't work as well, so I put down the knife and picked up the brushes. It's not the best photo.


  1. Every painting is a lesson, isn't it??? Nice to see your blog and work, AND great to meet you!

  2. Hi Laurel, great to see you! Yes, you are right that every painting is a lesson in one way or another.... thanks for stopping by.
