Aging Beauty

Early last summer my family and I visited the Lockport Caves and Museum in Lockport, N.Y. The old entry door to the museum, with its rustic locks and weather-beaten facade, became the inspiration for my next painting that I would work on most of the summer. It was very important to me to capture the essence of this antique door.
     The door itself tells a story with its iron hardware and the many layers of peeling paint. It has withstood the heat of summers and the harshness of winters.
      My granddaughter made a comment when she saw the finished painting. She said she loved the contrast between textures and light . . . smooth and rough. Vintage and antique “treasures” often have these contrasts and characteristics. Old houses and old things have been a continuous inspiration for my artwork.
      If doors could talk, this – one would have a lot to say. It certainly called to me.
