This image is a reproduction of a painting I did that was juried into the Art Rapids two week-long Experience Art Rapids event in Elk Rapids, Michigan. I debated on selling it. It got a lot of attention at the event and on Facebook. It has a fun story to go along with it:
I was standing near the painting at the “meet and greet” opening day. A couple of ladies approached and one said to her friend, “I have been to that gallery, it is in Harbor Springs, I love it!” I said, “Oh are you sure you have been there?, Look closer at the painting.” She looked at me rather strangely and said, not too nicely, “I am quite sure!” I wasn’t trying to cause a problem but it bothers me when people act so “know it all” to impress someone when they themselves are not fully informed. I introduced myself and told them that I was the artist and that it was a painting of the entryway to my home. It was done politely to not embarrass the woman.
The room portrayed I call my sunshine room because it is sunny and bright even on a cloudy day. I collect artwork from all over Michigan and a good number of my collection is in this room. It has a 17-foot ceiling and lots of windows. People walk and drive by my house all the time and have commented, wondering what was behind the blue door. I thought I would do a painting to satisfy their curiosity and I also enjoyed the challenge of the angles. The perspective was unusual. I have always admired artists who did interior studies. This turned out nicely so I think I will do a series. “Inside the Blue Door” is the first.
The Original Painting is available. This image is also available in Prints.
