Sometimes the small details in life are the most overlooked and under appreciated; just like this lovely rendering of a door knocker in Italy. The artist has kept the color palette simple to enhance the main subject. The detail is done in graphite with wonderful lights and shadows to bring out the look of iron. The background gives the feel of an old wooden door without going into too much detail. What a unique choice for a painting subject. Lotus loves to paint the beauty of the ordinary, and bring out its extraordinary qualities. Now this can be yours as a great conversation piece in any home of office. 

This lovely rendering of Italian workmanship is a watercolor by Lotus MacDowell on D'Arches hot press paper.

A simple, but elegant double mat has a deep gray linen top mat and a softer gray liner mat under it. The frame of this original watercolor painting is a beautiful silver frame- ornate but narrow, so as not to take attention away from the subject. Instead, it reinforces the Italianate theme, thereby creating a cohesive finished piece of art. This conservation framing includes Museum glass, which protects against harmful UV rays and eliminates annoying reflections.
