Millie, our beagle, was taking me on one of our daily walks earlier this spring. It was an overcast, cloudy spring day. She led me into the Croasdaile Farm park, around Boles Lake and back out the entrance to Croasdaile Parkway. As we approached the gates, I thought that would be a great scene to paint! I've been working on it on and off for the last month. I'm a notoriously slow painter, do something, then stop and ponder how to do the next part. Or maybe it's just adult ADD. I finished it this morning and now it needs a name. I thought of "The Entrance" or "Enter" but the scene faces outward. "The Gates" or "The Open Gate" are options, but seems obvious and uninspired. Our 4 year old granddaughter suggested "Love Is An Open Door", apparently the title of a song from the Frozen movie, she is a HUGE FAN!
I'd love to hear your thoughts on what would be a good title for this painting. Let me know!
