seems that here I have drifted into realism of a sort. The
Way leads up the hill, and through the gates. Adding real
elements to the architectural, like trees and flower pots
makes the whole piece more "human". This isn't
an actual place, except in my mind.
This piece is
also the beginning of my fascination with trees and golden
domes, which will show up in many of the paintings done
after this one.
