"Behind Closed Doors" a warm, golden oil painting with S. Frank

Years ago (too many to tell) I was lucky enough to live in southern Italy for four years. I have always loved buildings, especially doors and windows. To say the least, I was in heaven. The buildings and structures where so fantastically old. There was such a warm sensation to all of them. On my recent visit to Venice I took well over 700 pictures and when I started to look at them, I was not surprised to find how many of them were of old doors and windows. I think this fascination of mine with doors and windows is my trying to make connections between myself and the people I am visiting.

The door above had a great energy about it. I don't think it was the warm golden color of the building itself, but the warmth that was emitted through the two windows that drew me to it. I have tried to capture that warmth in this piece. I had so much fun working on this painting, I hope you enjoy it. I will be posting more of my pieces in the Italian Series as they are finished, so check back often.

Enjoy today!
