In a recent post on our website entitled, “Thought of the Day”, I mentioned that it had been a year since I had painted anything and I explained why I had trouble getting started on something new. In this post, I also mentioned that I had finally started a new painting and that I was excited to see what it would look like when it was done. So, here is.
This painting is entitled, “Rusty Latch on an Old Cottage Door”. I used a photograph that I took back in 2010 as my inspiration. Jim and I were on a photography workshop in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia and I took a shot of a beautiful blue cottage door. I loved the colour and the texture and it reminded me of the times I spent as a child at a relative’s cottage. I loved going to their cottage. Pancakes for breakfast, boat rides, fishing and swimming in the summer. Ice fishing and snowmobiling in the winter. Many happy memories.
