Who’s there? A lovely burst of warmth for you today. The sun has opened her door this morning and offers something bright to cheer you in these wetcold days of winter. Come on in and settle down with this Norman Lewis called La Puerta del Sol. Sun’s door.
I love the fresh lavender and honey-golden yellow in this canvas. It’s friendly and inviting. I see an echo of his native Harlem here in the energy and vibrance of the colors peeking though the shining sunsnow blanket.
My granddad loves to mix honey and butter together and spread it over toast. I think you could just take your spoon, scoop out a little dollop of this painting and spread it over your toast for a bright sweet-eyed morning treat. Mmmm. . .
Cheer up my friends, spring is just around the corner! Sun’s door is soon flung open.
