That first one is so evocative. It gives me a warm feeling inside.
Love your stylised tulips too. Very clever.
Thank you for taking the time to trawl through all the drivel on my blog. You deserve a medal. LOL. x

Chris, in "Jose's Doorways of Memories" (lovely title by the way) I am standing in what is the kitchen of the house my grandfather built looking out towards the porch. The room does not connect to any other room in the house. You may have seen in some of the other pictures that the house was built with adobe and my mom helped build it. Back in those days they all had to put in their contribution. My mom grew up in that house until the day she married my father. I had not seen it in 40 years and yet it still looks the same as it did back then.

I love how you captured the image in your beautiful painting. My sister just love the fact that you have painted some of my images. You do them justice and then some.
