"What is behind the Green Door ??" - acrylic

Like this a lot Mike, all the colours are wonderful and I like the way your eye is drawn through

I’d like to be privy to that information! Nicely done Mike. Love the rich colour and the sharp dark edge to the trees on the right which creates depth to the background hills. Who sang “Green door, what’s the secret you’re keeping” ? Can’t remember - must be getting old 😊

This is very atmospheric, a sense of mystery and leading you along the path. Brilliant

My thanks to all for the kind comments - greatly appreciated. Michael , they are "privies" or "dunnies " over here. Better still , "Long drops" which says it all. In my earlier and more energetic days , I was a keen tramper and we came across a fair selection - some of which I photographed - especially the older ones that had blown over or collapsed. Ubiquitous plastic chemical loos have replaced them - smell as bad but no character !!

Beautiful scene Mike.
