This lock is a heavily used part of my 1917 garage. The building is nearly falling over and I don’t know why I lock it at all. Someday I will tear it down but for now it is an excellent subject for my series of padlock paintings. It was painted using Rublev 18th century reproduction watercolor paint on Arches 140# cold-pressed paper. The paper and paint interact to create excellent textures. The original piece is 5″×7″ in size.
