Welcoming of Spring
For New Englanders, daffodils and crocuses mark the start of Spring. The enlarged exaggerated sizes of the flowers painted on this door is intentional and will hopefully inspire the viewer(s) to pay closer attention to nature. Approaching from one direction the images are created by dots of color that pay homage to impressionist painters, stippling dots and modern-world pixelated images. The image morphs from a 6 foot tall daffodil into little playful dots of color.
Approaching the artwork from the other direction one sees the mirror image on the reverse side of the door. The colors range from the greys of winter to a painterly explosion of pinks, purples, blues and greens. This artwork was pained by mother/daughter team Kathy and Maria Lobo with acrylic paint and weatherproofed with layers of polyurethane. We hope that this door brings viewers joy as they pass by, inspiring them to kneel down and take a closer look at the flowers and plants along the trail.
