There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception. - Aldous Huxley, The Doors of Perception (1954). Title taken from a poem by William Blake "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell" (1793). Jim Morrison admired Huxley and his band chose The Doors for their name (1965).

Thinking about what is my Muse...which is not something I do often as my prejudices run to thinking that is a concept lacking in humour and all rather 'chink in wall' in sentiment.

However, of course, the Muse is what gets us up and going at a particular time of the day or night such as that might be and so therefore, if asked, I would need to respond that my Muse is Observation and then Interpretation. I am no doubt looking for the in between.

This piece was created in this pictoral right hand version but I think I prefer it on its side as shown in the first version...and I kinda like the two of them together as well for a Victorian curtain motif version. :O) On its own, either way, the white space leaves a bit of tension to be filled. Growth.

I have since I did this piece in 2019 (this being 2020 during the pandemic) added a few berries which are shown in the left version. Stuff changes.
