I am drawn to houses, windows and doors, and to the countryside. Fewer people are there, as opposed to the city. There is silence in the fields, in old houses, in the wide space itself. Structures take on an added significance when there are fewer of them dotting the landscape. Sometimes they have personalities, all kinds, I suppose to make up for the lack of people. The quiet and sometimes lonely landscape provides a sense of tranquility, an oasis from the urban environment.
