Art Notes

The Open Gate , overgrown with flowers, is based on a real location in the English Cotswolds. I’ve kept the sketch for years, waiting for the perfect occasion to use it. I’ve found it now. This unassuming portal , peraps a half-forgotten side entrance to the gardens , is left open as an invitation to all. Will your childlike heart inspire you to journey forward?
