Great painting Pat! The cling film effect in the background is very interesting.
You've done a wonderful job on this Pat, and its good to see the various stages grow.
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.
A very exotic touch...I like the background, I'll try this. Arianna!
This is beautifully painted Pat. Background is also very nice.
This is fantastic, Pat!!! I love everything about it! It's perfect!!!
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 :)
Very striking, Pat. It looks almost Mayan. And those faint lines in the background add to the interest.
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)
It looks fabulous and I did enjoy seeing it in the making
Wow Pat, the face just floats off the page. It's stunning and masterful as always. xx Dion
That is so cool! Love how detailed the knocker is.
Thanks, Judy. I like that cling film effect too :) xxThanks Ann, glad you enjoyed the stages and the end painting xxThanks, Prabal. I was actually singing that song to myself as I was painting this! We are on the same wavelength. Glad you like it xx
Thank you Arianna, it is a touch exotic. I like things that are a little different. xxThank you Renske. I always try my best :) xxThank you Jan. I'm happy you think its fantastic xx
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 xxSandra, I've always thought it! Darks and shadows - though scary to put in, really bring a painting to life! xx
Thanks Ann, glad you enjoyed it xxThanks 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! xxThanks Tonya, did Seth like it too? xx
Wow, really beautiful Pat! The background is absolutely original, I like it. Ciao!
I find this subject special, and the painting is fabulous.
