As I hold the keys 
from my
from their responsibilitie--

I wonder why it is we secure what we do.

sweet key painting

nice thought to wonder about....
in the end we leave it all behind ~
perhaps it would be good to start early (i am talking to myself here)

Unmarked, forlorn, forgotten - yes, that is how I see them. Never thought about their freedom!
Great title for this very beautiful painting, Emily.

Beautiful key - love the colours... I always wish I knew the story of the few old keys I own... what they opened, who used them, what happened when the door was unlocked. What mystery I see in your beautiful painting.

Yes, that is an interesting question. It made me think of a lock on a diary, and a lock on a money box and then I thought of thieves. People steal. It's not something I spend a lot of time thinking about.
I really enjoy that white cloth background. It is so captivating and protective. Really nice painting!! N, x

I agree with Renilde this reduced color palette is superb and adds a mystious touch and is a perfect combination with the words.

Oh, your painting is wonderful!! And I love the words, too.
I don't know why the word access brought me associations to pin-codes...modern this why we call a keyboard keyboard? Surprising how many thoughts this theme would bring up! ;o))
