Dark days ahead

Sorry I've been MIA.  There's been a lot going on and I fear there's a lot more to go.  I've begun a difficult time in my life.  Don't worry, I'm strong, I'll survive.  Thank goodness for all the support I have in my life.  Without it I'd be wallowing in a deep well with no way out.  As it is I find myself in a dark place at times and have reconnected with painting to express these deeper emotions.  I have found it to help me focus.  I anticipate more of my upcoming projects to be influenced by my darker emotions.  Time heals all wounds and I'm waiting for mine to scar.  Here's one of the pieces I've done.
Closed Door
The colors are washed out in the photo.  It's a dreary day here and no matter what I did it still didn't photograph right.  It's done on canvas board with acrylic paint.  I used some dimensional fabric paint on some of the red so some of it would be glossy.  I think I'm going to add some chain around the door and maybe a padlock.  Time to go to Micheal's for supplies.
