Red Doors

Last week I took my camera along during a walk through the neighborhood. My goal was to capture images of the trees dressed up in their autumn splendor. I didn’t do well. Every time I framed up a nice shot, the sun went behind a cloud. So the photos did not come out as wished. I did get a nice shot or two of this front porch scene.

I was drawn to the red door, accented quite smartly by two red chairs. Today I got out my water colors and painted this interpretation in my sketchbook.

It allowed me to practice painting shadows. But it was a poor consolation prize compared to fiery leaves of autumn.


One of six children, I was raised by a busy mom, who instilled in me a love of fabric. Though I learned to sew and knit at a young age, it was the arrival of my first grandchild that pushed me into action. A long-time knitter, I am now ready to explore all things fiber.
