Porte de l'Eternité

Porte de l'Eternite, watercolor and lace.
If you think that watercolor and lace doesn't make sense, look at the picture more carefully. I spent a month in Budapest, painting watercolors on a studio next to a Swedish artist who worked with wood, old chairs, wax, ancient books, a lace umbrella, wire, etc. One day, inspired by her mixed media, I decided to try this: I painted a series of watercolors of balconies, gates, and I used lace and other media to depict part of the picture. These are the gates of the cemetery in Gavarnie, France, painted with Winsor and Newton watercolors over a Hungarian hand- made paper. Hand made lace has been glued to parts of the gate.
