three faces in my door - part 1

For just about as long as I've lived in this house, I have known that there were three faces hidden within one of our many wooden doors. Ever since recognizing their presence, I haven't been able to ignore the unique little features staring back at me each time I pass this particular entryway. So, I've decided to recreate them...taking them beyond the woodgrain characters that they are and giving them a new life on the screen of my computer. And while they are much more amazing in their original state, I do find a curiousness in this idea of taking found faces and transforming them into quirky little characters.

Aren't you going to make characters of the two other faces? :-) I'm becoming anxious!

That guy is so cool.

This almost seems like a translation project; the language of wood to the language of CGI.

Neat! And a bit wierd. Now I am going around to all of my doors to see who is peeking in on me.

The faces in the doors made me laugh out loud. It made me remember when I was a kid and we had one of those bathroom floors with the tiny tiles. One day, as I sat on the toilet, I was bored and was looking for interesting things to find in a bathroom I'd seen so many times before. I spotted a small marking in the grout between two tiles in the floor in front of the toilet. There, looking back at me, the markings made the image of a small man's face! It was a cartoonish man's face (sort of like Gilroy) peeking around a wall (formed by the tile next to him). It was silly, but I just couldn't stop looking at it. Then, everytime I'd go in there....he'd be there too....I could not stop looking at it each and every time. I missed him when we got the new floor. I now understand how people find images of holy figures in things like toast and potatoe chips!

Anyway, your doors made me think of that and I thought I'd share it
with you! Hope you are having a good day! - Toni (Pam's Mom)
