Wow, there have been a lot of new pics posted here since I last checked the thread, so I want to take time to offer feedback to those who have been so busy making art!

Lacto, the swirly door version is a great idea, with nice lines and composition. I think I’d like it even better with sharpening of the swirly doors.

Steve, your door painting is excellent... as usual. And your second one has a pleasant and subtle 3D quality that I like, though I usually don’t care for embossed/rendered looks. Nice work.

EB, those bold lines and colors work great on this subject...nice!

Pam, I especially like what your treatment did to the glass on the window.

Jean, just lovely! Your added touches are wonderful!

Jill, ooooh I love the cat on the stoop at night! Lovely image!

Goldcoin, what a great new look! What is “Composer?” Who makes it?

Tyeise, your night scene is awesome! The way the indoor lighting glows through the textured!

Alex, great b/w sketch! I’ve never seen a technique quite like that. The lines are bold but remain smooth...looks great. How did you do it?

Fishboy, sometimes your lacquer pics seem “right on” and quite pleasing. This one just doesn’t work for me...too busy, too many competing textures and colors with no apparent purpose.

Jade, I just love what VP collage did to this image! I have that program but forget to use it since it’s on my Mac Virtual PC Windows, and I tend to forget it’s there! Thanks for reminding me to get back to that again. light district?

I love this picture, and the other door pics we’ve had. I just bought 16 rolls of film to take on my vacation next week. Hope I remember to keep an eye out for interesting doors and other architectural features...not enough of such photos around.

Phyllis - thank you but I forget it's there too!

Have a wonderful holiday and we'll all look forward...I am some rare photos when you get home again! I have a friend who just left for Scotland/Europe 2 days ago who promised me some photos for my website.....YIPEE. Perhaps with her permission, she'll allow me to post a few "architecturals" here too. I lived just around the corner from Edinburgh Castle until my mid-20's - an area steeped in history! She hails from Edinburgh too so I expect some great photos. She wont be back until August.

bubba - no appologies necessary. I take it as a compliment that someone wanted to use my image. <g>

Sorry to take so long to respond. I am currently in NC at my Mom's while dad is out of town and she is recouperating from surgery. I hope to be able to pop in and out this week, but my time will probably be limited.

Phyllis - thanks for your comments. In order to get the light to show right, I did a negative of the glass, so the light would show thru the right areas, then did more work around it. :-)

Everyone has been doing such wonderful stuff! I wish I had the time to comment on all of it. Just know that I love what all you are doing.

Well Done

I like your submission Blues X - especially the colour change to the doors.

Tyeise - I hope your mum gets well real soon.

Blues-x - nice rendition - when I was in school there was a song "Green Door" and the jist of it was wanting to know "What was behind the Green Door?". Over 40 years later and I still don't know!

I did a Google search for "behind green door". I found reference to a song called "Green Door". But I also found that there was an early '70's porn movie with that title.

Hopefully, that's not what is going on behind this particular green door

fyi, the lyrics to the song are here:

"Green Door" has always been one of my favorites -- I liked the music, and the mystery of "what's behind it?".

Blues_X -- thanks for the link to the lyrics.

"Saw an eyeball peepin' through a smoky cloud
Behind the green door
When I said 'Joe sent me' someone laughed out loud
Behind the green door
All I want to do is join the happy crowd
Behind the green door!"

Bubba -- I just figured out what is behind the Green Door -- nowadays, anyway -- it's RetouchPRO! It's a happy crowd, and I'm finally getting in BEHIND the green door!
