Old Latch Study
by Rafael DeSoto

President's Comments: "This painting in its simplicity captures the curious. Where is it? What was behind the gate or door? How old is it? I can feel the sun on my shoulder as I look at it. The use of color and bold shapes are perfectly accented with shadow. The artist conveys time of day and age splendidly. It’s intriguing."
