Doors & Gates of the Southwest


Courtyard at Hubbell House


Palette knife oil painting on 8 x 6 inch stretched canvas.

The Historic Hubbell House in Ganado, AZ, was home 
for the family who started the Hubbell Trading Post back in 1878. 
It is now a National Historic Site and well worth a visit if you're ever in that area. 
This little courtyard is so private and peaceful.

Doors & Gates of the Southwest


Meyer Ave. #2


Palette knife oil painting on 8 x 6 inch canvas panel, unframed.

I loved how the gate was just hanging on the hinges - looked like 
it had been there a long, long time. Meyer Avenue is one of most charming
streets in El Presidio Historic District, Tucson, AZ.

DOORS & GATES


Blue & Green Entry


Palette knife oil on 8 x 6 inch stretched canvas, unframed.
A charming gateway in Encinitas, CA. It spoke to me,
saying, "Paint Me" - so I did.

DOORS & GATES: Disappearing Arches


Temple of Music & Art


Palette knife oil painting on 6 x 6 inch stretched canvas.

There's a mystery here. Where are the arches leading me? 
I don't know, as I didn't follow the path, just 
thought of how I would paint them.
