The Gate
A photograph of the client’s two children, about to walk through an open gate, gave me the central “anchor” for the painting. I suggested that the gate become a portal to a dream filled world, layered with personal symbols, i.e. white horse signifies the marriage proposal that happened in a white horse drawn carriage, red roses are the logo for the wife’s Ultimate Frisbee team, the ferris wheel recalls a favorite memory.
