Description This sepia tone print is of the main door on a replica of a 12 century Swiss chapel. It is located on the property of a family owned chocolate and candy factory in Issaquah, Washington. The founder immigrated from Switzerland just prior to WWII. Through the years he established a chocolate manufacturing business in Seattle and in the early 50's relocated to Issaquah which is located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. The area reminded him of Switzerland, so his facility was built in Swiss type architecture. On the property he also built a replica of a 12 century Swiss chapel as a shrine to mountain climbers. The object of this picture is the main door to the chapel.Follow my work:TheWallGallery: https://thewallgallery.comBlog: http://thewallgalleryblog.wordpress.com/Twitter: https://twitter.com/KirtWallGalleryFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/TheWallGallery.KirtTisdaleCopyright 2013 Kirt Tisdale/TheWallGallery.com
Kirt Tisdale, Sherman Oaks Member Since February 2013 Artist Statement I have been creating art since I can remember. I have been blessed with having my work featured in various venues. What drives me is the beauty in the world with which we live. I remember as a kid looking up at the clouds and watching them change shape...if they could only stay in one shape long enough for me to enjoy and appreciate them....but that's not how it works. What I can do though is take a moment and freeze it. The beauty around us needs to be savored, contemplated and appreciated. Good art invokes an emotional response either through the scene depicted or the colors used. I hope my work invokes the same in you.
