The stained wall frames the subject, the door, which serves as a metaphor - a passageway, the unknown, curiosity, what once was, purpose, etc. Hopefully, the viewer has their own interpretation which brings me to this point; I do not title my work so as to avoid coercing the audience into my way of thinking. I believe it's far better to allow one to make up their own minds than to be directed. When I critique one's work, I do not want them to preface the piece nor do I want to know the title. I want to discover for myself.
