"Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself."
With gratefulness to my Eminent Reiki Master Teacher Mary Katherine Frizzell
(September 2013)

I was inspired by a Dutch contemporary painter but lost track of his name.
If you know him please tell me, so I'll be able to give him the attention he deserves!

At the University of Delaware (Wilmington Campus, just around the corner where our VP Joe Biden lives) I'm teaching my very talented students how to use and to incorporate all kind of textures in their paintings.
For this oil painting I used an archival modeling paste which gives the impression of sanded walls.
Then I painted these old opening doors with oil on a studio stretched canvas.
I think the effect is exactly how I had it in mind:
the warmth of the colors are inviting to enter.

Second picture:
Purposely I placed this painting in a contrasting minimal interior.

Tim Seaward:
"I am particularly struck with this image ... I just love the idea of doors and more doors ... an incredibly evocative piece of creative motion ... and I AM moved."

Oil mixed media on studio wrapped canvas 16x20 inches (41x51 cm)
