At Sanctuary's Gate

Here is the finished painting!
I've deepened the shadows, to make it feel more three dimensional.
I do hope you have enjoyed seeing it develop.
It will also take its place on my permanent gallery site HERE

  4. First of all your idea of this painting representating knocking at the Heaven's door is awesome. Reminds me of Dylan. 'Knocking on heaven's door'. And it is a special painting too. Good job.

  8. Fabulous piece Pat. I really like the clingfilm effect. I don't think I'd be patient enough to let it dry! Quite scary too - it reminds me of the doors to Scrooge's house in one of the old Christmas Carol films :)

  9. Very striking, Pat. It looks almost Mayan. And those faint lines in the background add to the interest.

  10. It's amazing how making the darks reeeeeally dark, makes the lights really sing and brings a painting to life isn't it? I love the subjects you chose to paint too :0)

  16. Thanks Michael. It does have that kind of scary feel - at Scrooge's house. One of my friends said to me it looked as if the door knocker was surprised to see her at Heaven's gate :lol:

    Thank you , Kathryn. There is a bit of a Mayan feel too. I find it amazing that this piece can be read so many ways xx

    Sandra, I've always thought it! Darks and shadows - though scary to put in, really bring a painting to life! xx

  17. Thanks Ann, glad you enjoyed it xx

    Thanks Dion. He does come right to you! But then, I like to think of Heaven's door as not fixed in any one spot, almost like it travels to meet you! xx

    Thanks Tonya, did Seth like it too? xx
