Doorways. The subject of this weeks Focus on Life series with Studio Sublime. I struggled until realizing that one of my most frequently used doorways is the door to creativity.

For me, the threshold is crossed when immersing myself in an inspiring book, periodical or my art journal. And, of course, the ultimate threshold is actually diving in, grabbing a brush and beginning the journey.

That's my doorway. What's yours?

  2. Ho Lori,
    I like your take on this prompt and not literally using a door, but yet a door way of the mind into your talent.

  5. First off thanks for the visit and following I'm honored "-".. What a wonderful concept, now that you've mention it:):). its my favorite door too. I go in and just begin to create, music playing in the background, soothes me and really help me to embark on my journey. I do love old door ways with the big scrolled hinges,and a beautiful iron handle.. Thanks for sharing and making us think. Have a great weekend...

  16. Lori, your door is one of my favorites! :-) To get lost through the doorway in a book is a favorite of mine and to step through the doorway as I create and learn leads me 'home', to my soul.
