How many doorways - both literally and figuratively - have I passed through?  Each event, adventure, trail, has started by opening the door.

Some doorways seem quite heavy - like those old, wooden doors that actually creak if you try to push them open and then have to be held open which can be a burden.

Some doorways are like the old wooden screen doors that 'slapped' shut behind me - letting me know I had just taken a step over the threshold.

And some doorways are just bits of thread looped over a bit of fabric leading who knows where...

"You must not for one instant give up the effort to build new lives for yourselves.  Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life." - Daisaku Ikeda


  1. That's gorgeous - the colours balance beautifully, and the shapes tell the story so well!

  2. I'd love to have THAT one on my wall.

    Colours and composition are superb!

    ...know what you mean about "doors" too... :-)

  4. I agree, the balance of colours and shapes is wonderful and so inviting. It's a doorway I'd love to pass through.

  5. Penny, you have achieved depth with this piece, in more ways than one. Absolutely stunning, it draws me in!
