Door of Peception

28.00

Whenever I travel I end up taking pictures of doors. They are symbolic of many things… frames, opportunities, paths, endings, and new beginnings. This doorway is from the garden of Compton castle in England, opening to a view of the Blue Ridge mountains in Virginia where I grew up. This piece is a place of imagination of eras long past and impossible vistas.

About the series:

I love the intimacy of small works, especially those packed with meaning that can be held in your hand.  In this series, I set out to paint small scenes of symbols that have played an important role in my life, and also happen to be some of my favorite things (Sound of Music reference intended). I hope these small wearable pieces of art will act as reminders to explore the world, and see magic in the ordinary. I make each one of the pendants by hand starting with prints of the original watercolors. The glass cabochon slightly magnifies the work, giving the pendants an appearance from another time.

30 x40 mm glass cabochon, zinc alloy, brass finish, 30 in. chain
