The Gate, Oil Painting on Canvas, Merel van Eck 2021.

'Suddenly this magical place appears, or have I been dreaming about it? It feels energetic and powerful, hauntingly beautiful. I'm attracted to it, but for somehow I feel that I definitely should not enter. Could this really be the gate of the lost spirits? I've heard of it, but never in my dreams have I thought I would see it. It's a gate that should only be entered by lost spirits, never by mortals. There is no way back, which is for the better. Lost spirits will finally find their rest and forever peace. It should happen on Samhain, when lost spirits are most restless. I really do hope they will find their peace, wouldn't want to be in their shoes... When you can't find the gate yourself, showing them an image of this gate should be enough for them to realise where they should go. I wish them a safe journey.'
