Hidden Doorway

On a side street in Tucson's old section, El Presidio, I found a doorway to a home that was set back from the street with no walkway leading to it. Apparently another entrance is used, because lights were on in the home. It looked like a cool refuge from the hot midday sun. 20" x 16" acrylic painting, # 5 in a doorway series.

Purple Doorway, Tucson

This is another of Tucson's intriguing doorways in the old section called El Presidio, founded by the Spaniards before England sent settlers to the east coast. The once-walled settlement is in the shadows of Tucson's modern "skyscrapers." 20" x 16" acrylic painting.
