Fantasy Door

“When there is no color, there is no energy and if there is no energy there is no life” ~ Caravaggio.

I just finished painting one side of my studio. The colors and style are not for everyone, I am sure. In my home, I am not looking for relaxing colors, I will have enough relaxation when I will be dead, now, in this life, I want colors that will vibrate my existence.
I sit at the computer with this closet door behind me, it used to be white. I was tired of covering the white closet door with a curtain printed in a Paris scene, the Eiffel Tower, and Montmartre stairs, a view of Paris that offered a vicarious traveling pleasure to the audience viewing the videos I produce on various subjects.

I decided to paint colorful fantasy butterflies on this door. I had no previous drawings, photographs or ideas, I just grabbed some colors and brushes, and freehand I composed as if it was music.

Butterflies on the door

I liked what I saw as I progressed in the painting, so much to determine the colors of the wall next to it. Before it was light yellow and it became glittered red with metallic gold stripes.

I continued with the glittered red paint over the door, I thought it needed to be in unison with the wall.

I am showing the door first closed and then opened to the corridor to reveal another mural I painted a few years ago.

Door Opened

The goal of painting my home in a fantasy way was to see another view instead of a simple white wall when the doors are opened. I carried this concept in every room and it feels cheerful. I have a couple of other areas to paint, the fun continues, hoping I will stop before the roof…

    Stepping into a different colour scheme every time you walk through a door is a grand idea.

    I like the way the painting on the door came out. A nice touch of whimsy🙂

    Wow! The newly painted door is vibrant ( much better than the plain white door). I like colors too but a lot more subtle and for every colored wall in my home,I have 3 white ones🙂. But, your home is your den- all that matters is you love it and it works for you. Thanks for sharing, Valentina.

    Fabulous! I LOVE colour and have it in every room. I used to have white walls and then one day, I was awakened by the idea of colour.

    “ The colors and style are not for everyone…” They only have to work for you. I think they are lovely. I really like the border around the door. I think you were right to extend the wall color to include the door. Well done!
