Doors of Perception

Portal K Howell 2012 Charcoal/oil pastel on paper 14 cm x 21 cm
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it! Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. 
So says Goethe. 
And then comes the development work.

 I love the simple magic of doorways. A door is choice and possibility, the unexpected and undiscovered just beyond the threshold.
This is a reconstructed Saxon arch, and while it appears to go nowhere (it's part of a freestanding wall, the building no longer extant), it offers a whole new view through its frame. A Portal. From here to somewhere else, furnishing a glimpse of the Other Side (In this case, a shifting tide and Cumbria ).

Paintings are coming along Slowly... so many possible doorways!


  1. "Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it!"
    What a true statement. It just goes to show that there are so many folks on the same page. I just blogged about this very thing!

    Love the idea of doorways. It invites us to think about so much, allowing our imagination to run wild.

    Great work..looking forward to seeing more doors!

  2. Let's hope they're open, yes?
    Thanks for dropping in!
