I really enjoyed painting “Happy New Year” so I decided to do another one with a similar concept. Thinking of subjects for these trompe l’oeils is just as much fun as painting them and trying to make them look realistic.

Here’s a new trompe l’oeil painting. For those who find this post a bit late with almost 2 weeks past now since New Year’s Day, I’ll explain. I started creating a painting a day on June 20, 2009, but I only managed to get this blog going on July 4, 2009. Although it means that I am always ahead by about 15 paintings, each one is posted to this blog in the order that I painted them. I didn’t plan the date before painting this trompe l’oeil and its turn only came up today.

Looking back, I am thankful that I have been able to finish one painting a day, except for one day when I painted two (red pepper and green pepper) and another day when I worked on a portrait instead of a daily painting.
