The Gate by chvacher The Gate by chvacher
Oil on canvas board. 11 x 14 inches.
To answer questions I have been asked about how long it took to paint this, well it was quite a while ago (2002) and I was doing it on and off, so I'm not totally sure, but I think at least 3 days.
Yes, it's not digital, and not "speed painting" :)

This painting has inspired me ever since I saw it. I have written short stories because of this beautiful piece, i have painted also because of this piece. It is truly the most beautiful artwork I have ever seen. It simply speaks to me in a way I don't understand. It's like it is part of my childhood, it is like it is a soulmate. I'm being a bit dramatic here, but I am moved when I see this.

Thank you. It is actually one of my most popular pieces, maybe the most. For some reason, it speaks to people in deeper ways, that I can't even explain myself.
