Doors: Day 5





Genesis 1:20-23 And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.” So God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day.

Initially when we went door-shopping, I
thought that we would use these smallish doors for all 6 days. In the end, the variety of doors helped to create a more unique
way of expressing each concept, and we worked with more different media this way.

This door, though, was more fully acrylic painting. My friend Sarah really envisioned the simplicity of the design, and she helped me clean, finish and paint this door, and chose the antique hardware latch. This was the first one we completed and it really helped set the tone for the whole group with the bright colors and the joyful mood.

And, as Sarah pointed out, we chose to paint a type of fish, the Koi, that looks like it has a mustache. But more about that tomorrow!
