For the past few years, I’ve regularly featured art on the front door to our home.
I’m not sure how many people actually see it, but it’s my way of adding original art to a world that sometimes lacks originality.
I believe that art has an authenticity that’s only appreciated when it can be viewed, up close and in real life.
Here’s one of the collages I displayed on my front door:
Sometimes I change the art daily. Sometimes weekly. Now and then, I may leave a statement piece – art with a strong message – on my door for a few weeks. It varies with my mood, as well as my schedule.
Here’s other art I’ve displayed on our front door:
What I display varies with my mood, and whatever I’m working on, creatively.
Recently, I realized that a few people may want to know more about the art. So, I snagged the domain name, DoorGallery.org. It’s in tiny letters at the lower left corner of the framed art.
Not long after that, I saw an article about another artist with an even better idea, her Little Free Art Gallery.
Where we live, that’s not entirely practical, but I do love the concept. I may create my own version at our next home.
But mostly, I’m always looking for ways to share original art – in real life – with lots of people, in unexpected settings.
