Door V: The Narrow

"Door V: The Narrow" comes from a series of metaphysical doors, some religious and some psychological. Inspiration for "The Narrow" came from scripture. I used to sing in the choir in an old church - from there I could look at the entrance door (closed during service) and a narrow side opening with a staircase that led to the balcony. Obviously my mind was straying off the sermon - looked like the stairway to Heaven to me!

The original painting is in the collection of the US Department of State in Washington, DC. It is a gouache, 28" x 13".

Available as a print.
