The Garden Gate

oil on canvas (10x10 in)

This painting is based on a neighbour’s garden gate.  The knocker caught my eye as I was walking by, and although I thought it might be very challenging to execute (it was), as usual, it was a very enjoyable challenge.  It seems for me that the beginning of almost every painting starts out like a mystery as to how I will ever be able to approach the subject and capture what I want to capture about it.  I’m happy with how this turned out and that I managed to get to the end of the mystery …
