Part of a series of paintings which depicts different doors and different openings. Inspired by my walking journeys between home and the unemployment office in May/June of 2009.
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 was inspired by the sale of the Blue Moroccan version. It had been a year after the actual painting of the door, and for some reason I felt sad to see the Blue on go. I guess it's similar to an after-thought, not exactly part of a series of Blues, but more a cathartic exercise in complexity of patterns which I enjoyed while doing the Blue version. This door, however, was technically more challenging to paint as I decided to up the ante.
Being done entirely in freehand, some of the tiles, unfortunately, distort in proportions. Thankfully, none of that mattered and it was sold a month later.
