"so, anyway, as I walked up to the gate, I thought to myself, 'this should go OK. What could possibly go wrong?'"

I suspect Rodin would be jealous if he was able to see this gate.

So epic in scope, it is magnificent to behold those gates and see how tiny that person is when standing before their darkly majestic portals! They are like the gates to some alien netherworld, which once passed means no return. Glorious painting! I like it very much.

Thank you for the compliment on my descriptiveness! In addition to art, I have a deep love of poetry and have written tons of it over the years... so being a poetess as well as an artist, by nature, I tend to be rather poetic in my descriptions of things.  If you'd ever like to read some of my poems, head on over to Deep Underground Poetry sometimes and look for everything by Kou_Indigo which is the name I go by on there. Here's a link, so you won't have to goggle it:

Love the the central beam of light, the way it brings the sense of sorcery behind the gate alive and also illuminates the stairs leading to it, a nice touch of awe and preternatural with just one element, so cool!
