Grandma's Door

Grandma's Door

Northern Light Painting Camp 2018 , Malini Oil painting on canvas " Grandma's door" Year 2018, Dimensions 50x70 cm

Description: I recently discovered a long-abandoned house nestled among the hills, which seemed to call me into its yard. The entrance door, with its enchanting colors, invited me to explore the secrets hidden within. I was inspired to paint this door that drew me into the house.

In my painting, I captured the light blue door and the yellowish-brown wooden walls, creating a sense of warmth and timelessness. The rich colors and intricate details serve as a testament to the enduring beauty of the craftsmanship and the stories waiting to be rediscovered.

When I entered the house, I found a treasure trove of untouched belongings, a snapshot of a time long past. The dust-covered objects, ranging from clothing to decorative items, spoke of a bygone era, reminiscent of my grandparents' time or perhaps even earlier. My painting of the door symbolizes my connection to this forgotten world, a bridge between the present and the past.

"Grandma's Door" is my exploration of the ties that bind us to our heritage and the echoes of history that reverberate through the objects and spaces we leave behind. Through my use of color, light, and texture, I invite the viewer to step through the door and embark on a journey through time, discovering the hidden stories and memories etched into the very fabric of the house.
