Doorways~

This weeks theme was "Doorways" I made my "door" out of a paint brush. Expressing yourself though art can open doors... as in... the joy you feel, the release of emotions.... ummmm.... just the belief that what you do makes a statement if to no one else but yourself. Now with that said... don't look to closely at this piece or you'll know for sure I'm needing therapy LOL~
*note, some of the glue & paint is still wet*
Here is the door closed.... Look at the paint brush "key" above the door, neato huh~The door opening up.....Looking though the door you will see a silver charm that reads "courage" I am such a coward when it comes to art... but I'm getting better!

Cheryl,
That door is awesome! And I love the little girl who's ready to travel thru the door. Is that a pic of you? Walking thru the door and finding courage to create such wonderful things as you always do! :)

This is great -- love the detail photos -- they say so much. You can tell you put a lot into it. Very evocative with lots of mood! Doors are fun subjects, but you bring a whole new light to it and I really like it a lot!

I also love this piece. I have never seen anything like it. I especially love it because of the paint brush. My uncle who just passed was a painter by trade. It reminds me of him so much. Thank you for sharing.
