Closing the Windows, Closing the Doors

"A painting is like the facade of a house...and you're like a janitor who goes around systematically trying to close all the windows and doors -- but when you get to the top floor to close the last window, a wind blows open the one on the first landing.
You rush down and close that one, and then one on the middle floor blows open and you rush to close that.But when you've closed all the entries to the house, then the painting is closed -- not that it's finished, it's just that you can't enter it any longer."  (Graham Nickson)


  1. congrats on getting all of the doors shut and good luck with the next house.

  2. Gorgeous! I agree a painting is never quiet finished, but yours looks beautiful!
