Description 2010 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved_______________________________________________Somewhere in England, behind a waterfall of ivy, hides a small cottage. There is an iron fence extending from the sides round the back, but the overgrowth is so thick it's difficult to see it. _______________________________________________There is a weatherbeaten red door with a rusted, tarnished knocker that doesn't seem to have been lifted for decades. It is rumored, in the village, that an old, old man fleeing who knows what consequences of life inhabits the cottage, but no one in recent memory has ever seen him. _______________________________________________Foodstuffs are delivered once weekly and left in a sturdy wooden box on the doorstep. Eventually the box reappears - emptied - outside the door and is picked up, restocked and re-delivered on the appointed day. One wonders..._______________________________________________Digital oil painting, with more detail than can be seen on most monitors. This image has a realistic, noticeable paint stroke texture and a cracked-wood panel finish. Based on one of artist Constance Widen's wonderful photographs.
