Another new painting

I love this one..."Opportunity Knocks"...Knock on the old wood water stained door, turn the wobbly knob and the door shall be open. When I saw this door knob, the age, the textures, the water-droplets... I wanted to try and recreate it with paint.
And the idea of opportunity knocking is fortuitous at this time in my art career, lots of great things are happening for me.
I originally painted this door handle with the idea that there would be a second painting of the key to open the door. However, while painting "Opportunity Knocks" I realize that the painting itself may lead viewers to the understanding that they are the key.


  1. This is a very good painting Sam...wonderful subject matter. That is the sort of thing that wins awards :)
