It was a struggle for me to get started with this one. This photo of a cottage in Sissinghurst, England. features an idyllic setting that is almost too perfect ... too idyllic ... too pretty.
After much study of the photo and a lot of pondering, I found it was the patina of the aged wood that very much appealed to me.
Narrowing my focus to feature just the door let me get "into" composing a piece to meet the challenge... let me enjoy the journey of interpretation.
