This is my latest Trompe Lóeil painting entitled Memories of Mackinac. The idea behind the composition is a tourist returning home from the island and tacking up all their favorite photos along with snippets of island flowers collected on the way home. It is meant to look like everything is tacked up on a white board. Notice that I carried the shadow of the lower lilac onto the frame to complete the 3 dimensional look. The painting was done in oil and the image is 12" x 16". I have 3 more compositions waiting to paint between miniatures. Can't wait!
This painting will be available for purchase on the island in May.
Till next time,
“My passion is to render sun drenched landscapes that usually include architecture and sometimes animals. These are the things I love, only in miniature!
