 I for a time to locate a description of this door bracing strategy with no luck   

Featured Print: "Grey Barn Doors" 



"Grey Barn Doors"


This is one of my favorite prints in my Barn Door series. Taken in Lebanon Township, Hunterdon County, NJ, the soft grey of the doors is appealing, and I especially like the shapes of the door braces.  


They remind me of Leonardo da Vinci's drawing, "The Vitruvian Man," which is said to show the perfect proportions of man. Of course, my grey barn doors are hardly as elegant as that famous drawing, but they are appealing to me nonetheless.  


I struggled for a time to locate a description of this door bracing strategy with no luck. Then I realized that the braces on the lower sections of the doors were, in fact, double "Z" braces, which isn't terribly uncommon. What's different is square tops paired with the double Z braces on the bottom. I couldn't discern their structure for the longest time because my eye always saw the Vitruvian Man. I'm glad that mystery is solved. I've used this print for my new business cards


Featured Art Print Display: "Lotus of Paxson Hill Farm" 
Paxson Hill Farm Lotus
"Lotus of Paxson Hill Farm"

This is my print that was selected for the Empty House Party at the Clement Doyle House Designer showcase.  I captured this images at Paxson Hill Farm outside of New Hope, PA. 


Owned by a landscape architect, this gentleman's farm offers a green house and nursery as well as lovely gardens specializing in ornamental grasses.  A pond with multiple falls feature these lovely pink lotus blossoms. 


I chose this bloom because of the twisted petal that appears to be be calling, "This way!"  Perhaps pointing to fairies under the Japanese bridge?  More likely, pointing to the pretty dragonflies darting around the pond, or the croaking green frogs.
