Ow how sad that you closed thew gate, it's not a invitation to go further into your painting that way, and that while it's soo inviting to do, ... how sad.

Looks as if everyone there is still asleep. Nice shadows on the drive.

Your eye is drawn in by the beautifully done gates to this peaceful place. Your use of cool blue in the shadows just make your eye dance. PatMeyerdailypaintner.blogspot.com

Hi Liza,

This is gorgeous! I love it, and wish
I could be there.

René, it was very early morning and everybody was still asleep! But apart from that I quite liked the dominating abstract shape of the gate in contrast to the trees and bushes around it. I am planning to do more of this house and then I will think of your suggestion!

Liza Hirst said...

Thank you Pilgim! Yes, everybody WAS still asleep!

Thank you Barbara! It is actually a holiday house of a friend of ours that he rents out - so come on over!!!

Hi Pat,
how interesting - you find your eyes are being drawn in by the gate while René thinks it blocks the invitation! Always amazing how different people perceive things....
Thank you for your kind comment!
