“This painting was inspired by a dream I had where I was seeing many people knocking at doors in different states of leaving the rooms they were in. Some of the people had been able to leave the rooms and some were still inside. Some people were trying to find out how to open the door and some people didn’t realize there were doorknobs and they could easily open the door and leave. Some of the doors had no doorknobs and some people didn’t even realize there was a door in their room.”
The painting is painted using a process that begins with photo merging and ends by painting the image in high detail in oil paint on board.
