"Gate to Spring" from Laura Milnor Iverson

"Gate to Spring":

As the full moon rises over a Japanese garden, a gate opens to another world. Snow falls on the outward scene but, inside the gate, the snow gives way to cherry blossom petals on the path. Snow has not quite yet hidden the footprints on the stones from some traveler crossing between worlds. The winter world is in shades of blue, turquoise and indigo. This visionary piece, part of the Shaman's Gate series (mystical landscapes of alternate realities), is in my private collection. This piece is offered as an open edition giclée print.

This is lovely, Laura. :) It reminds me of the doorway in the closet in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, or a zen version of the stargate in SG-1. I imagine that there are sounds of spring coming through the doorway, into the silence of the snow scene.
