Secret Doorway
This is more of a work in progress...I have lots I want to do with it.
But I'm posting it now for the Doorways and Windows
challenge at Inspiration Avenue, brought to us this week by Nancy.
I'll post it again as it is finished.

The thought of a tiny doorway hidden in the roots of an ancient tree
is fascinating to me! Who thinks to look among the roots of every tree 
in the forest to see if it holds the entrance to a fairy abode?
Right...not many of us, which is why they go unnoticed much of the time.

Autumn is just a beautiful time in the woods.
September is upon us, but it's looking more like summer
right now than fall. Since I've been working on this
painting, I'm looking forward to crisp autumn days,
the crunch of fallen leaves under my shoes,
and a look-see under the roots of some old trees!

Of course I've had fairies on my mind anyway since the
preparations for the Fairies Tea are under way at Inspiration Avenue!

Be sure to stop by the Tea Party page at IA
and add your name to the party list!


  1. Those warm autumnal colours are lovely Maggie, and I can just imaginee walking up the path leading up to that sweet little door!

  2. I love your doorway in the tree. Are elves behind it? Are squirrels making their nest? Can't wait to see it develop. Thanks for sharing!
