revisiting doors

The other day I was going through some of my supplies and came across these forgotten stitcheries from 2012. After our trip to London (has it really been 2 years? seems like yesterday.) I was infatuated with the beautiful, colorful doorways we had seen. I recreated 2 of the door photos I had taken in fabric. Specifically, wool felt and embroidery on quilting cottons....
 And there they sat, all folded up in a drawer. So I bought two artists canvases & stretched them over, creating some interesting wall art for our house and another wonderful memory of the London trip.

Not exact replicas of the photos, but pretty close I think. Every time I look at them, I fantasize about going back.... ahhhh someday.

Hi Ellyn
Those are beautiful doors. Such a good idea to back them with a canvas frame. Well done. The doors are really pretty in Edinburgh too. Seems to me they know how to do doors up in that neck of the woods!
