This is a depiction of the front doors of the historic old building, built back in 1923. This rendition has the old doors I knew when I was growing up, which have long since been replaced. Long ago it housed the town library with the rich smell of old books and rich knowledge; a place where I used to spend hours studying old reference books of the masters I wasn’t permitted to take home. I used to teach tennis out on the back courts and worked for my grandmother in the kitchen and dining room, serving lunches for the Rotary and Y’s Mens’ Clubs during the summers. I spent a lot of time going in and out of those heavy front doors, so painting them had a very special meaning to me. I was drawn to the beauty of the turquoise tarnished copper against the rich colors of old bricks.
