Part of a series of paintings which depicts different doors and different openings. Personally‚ I find doors fascinating‚ as the face of a home or a place. They appear to say one thing about the place‚ but can present another upon entry.

This door is the first in a series of smaller rectangular canvases depicting blue themed doors. Inspired by the doors of Morocco and the blues of Majorca‚ I decided to create a complex layered door frame of Moroccan inspired tiles‚ adorning a simple brushed gold wooden door.

This would be one of the more detailed and complicated pieces from a technical perspective. Being done entirely in freehand‚ some of the tiles‚ unfortunately‚ distort in proportions.
