Following Melanie's lead at "Secret Notebooks-Wild Pages" today, I am posting my photos of doors. The first is a wood block print that I did of a red screen door on a garden building.
This sweet red door is on a studio space next to a house in Auburn on Gold Street.
This is Rodney Mott's house. Rodney is an artist and I'm sure you can see that he has plenty of it on his front steps. I wonder what the inside looks like?!
This Auburn Victorian with the picket fence has a great front door too.
Doors aren't just about the front of a house: garages need doors too and here is a great set on another Victorian in Auburn.
And finally, another Auburn Victorian with a red door and a maple tree. Doors are like the jewelry that we wear except that we can't change the "look" daily, depending on what kind of clothes we are wearing or how we are feeling. But, doors also give the viewer a peek into the style of the owner and how "dressy" we want to appear. I think a front door can make or break a house. And, the color of the door is important to me also. I mostly love red doors although I have seen some classy doors in various colors. I wonder what the color choice says about the owners inside? Do you think that color welcomes, invites, says something about the owners? I can't imagine that a door is just a door. To me, there is always a reason why we pick a certain color for our front door. I'm wondering if a plain, undecorated, boring brown door also says something about the owners inside...hmmmmm...maybe?
