    for some reason I am so drawn to this painting. I’m drawn to the interiors of the past represented here. The painting inspires me to open the door to my own past. I’m sure the colors, numbers, and other images are indicative of your own past–perhaps some secret passages. Anyway, thanks for sharing your creative spirit.

    Very intriguing subject and well expressed. It invites me into the scene with great curiosity of what lays above the stairs.

  3. I love this piece. Like others who’ve already commented, it reminds me of places I’ve visited–and nostalgia tugs at my heart. I love the bright colors and the atmosphere of intrigue. As I peek through that open door into the passage I can almost feel those cold stones on my bare feet as I slip into the shadows and up the stairs! Thanks for sharing. Your work inspires me too!
