The Painting Blog

Started as a daily painting blog but this is easier to live with-
the once-in-a-while blog of a painter who also writes.

February 7 Trompe l'oeil Scene

I rather liked the color scheme of yesterday's painting. I used the same colors today on a much larger winter scene. This is an out of the ordinary shape which called for a painted frame since it would be difficult to find one to fit. I've done trompe l'oeil on walls in homes around the area; including mine. It's a fun wall treatment but since this one is on hardboard, it's portable. The detail shows a segment of the "frame."

Approximately 27" at the widest by 30" at the peak. $380


  1. It's lovely; it's what the monks see out the window when they are distracted from devotions by the bells from the Clydesdales

  2. Yup. The team is just beyond the tree on the left.
