TITLE:

"Painting of a...Painting of a...Painting of a...Painting of a Broken Door on a Broken Door"

MEDIUM:

Oil, 1970's Broken Door

DIMENSIONS:

80" x 30" x 1"

DESCRIPTION:

My whole idea of this painting is to fool the eye. Which part of the door is actually physically broken and which part is just oil paint?

As the viewer's eyes look at the painting, they are drawn into the middle to see a self-portrait of what the broken door once appeared like. In addition, as the eye moves, the door appears to open before the viewer's eyes.

I invested over 100+ hours into this painting and it is my favorite painting.
