yet another Cornwall gate

with 7 comments

As you may have seen on my ‘accomplishments’ page, I have sold the painting ‘rainbow gate in Falmouth’. It was on display as part of an art auction at Isaac’s Way Restaurant in Fredericton.

I am continuing to paint in my Cornwall gates series.  This past weekend, I painted another gate from Ponsanooth entitled ‘enter’.  Gates are meaningful to me, as metaphors for change and as representative of possibility.  And the various building materials, stone, cement, wood and metal, are very enjoyable to paint …

    • Hi. So far, people seem to like them. I am going to try painting one of my gates in acrylics … I’ll show you the result (someday)… Jane
