Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
The three doors at the back with symbols (heart, star, diamond) pertain to the doors of opportunities for love, fame and fortune. The last door with a rainbow is open. At the rainbow's end, they say, one can find a pot of gold. Each colored symbol (red, yellow, grey) is associated with a colored fruit. As the woman puts on a colored fruit , in this instance a grey fruit (fortune), on the hour glass, a respective same colored door opens. There is a limited time that this opportunity is available. As the sand runs out of the fruit, the corresponding door closes. Right now the woman is looking at love when the opportunity available is fortune. She is indecisive. At the back is a mask (thief) piercing through 2 doors. There is an expression that says "Indecision is the thief of opportunities". The woman has seemingly turned to stone for her indecisiveness. Plants with no fruits are symbols of opportunities that have passed.
