Print on Metal 'Portugal Gate'
Rounding a corner in a tiny village of Portugal, I literally jumped off my pedals to stand awe-struck at the beauty of this gateway.
The bougainvillea was absolutely brilliant with reds and burgundies in contrasts as it draped over the whitewashed stone walls and arched gate, proud with its painted deep gold trim.
I never wondered what was beyond the gate, nor peered to see because I was so taken with the feeling that had overtaken me. I simply stood and admired .... and soaked in the beauty.
With reluctance I biked away, glancing back several times, locking into my memory this snapshot of time so that I could watercolor it later that day. And repeat the awe.
May it have the same deep wonder for you to enjoy every time you glance at it.
From Portugal to your home. Enjoy!
