Don't you love artists' photos of beautiful doorways? Often the door is painted a bright color, maybe it's an interesting shape. Flower boxes surround it. An old bike might be propped up against the wall. It's all too pretty . . . and too overdone. Yes, they're beautiful, but sometimes you get a been there, done that feeling. I bet if you visited ten art shows, there would be at least one artist in every show who has photos of doorways. That's why I was so suprised, and thrilled at the art I saw recently at Artigras in Jupiter, Florida.
I entered one artist's booth and was immediately taken by his photographs. What caught my eye were two photos of doors -- taken from inside the house. The doors were open, and you could see what is just beyond the door. In one case, a tree. The other shows just a peek at the yard. What a fabulous idea for a photo.
I love how it makes me think: what other things in your life would be so much more beautiful if you just looked at them from a new perspective?
