Since today is Independence Day in America, I wish to greet all Americans a Happy Fourth of July!

Today is also a very special day for me because, like the title says, this is also my blog’s first anniversary! I should have posted the 365th daily painting around this time, but since I wasn’t able to keep my schedule, it will come a little (or a lot!) later than I expected. We’ll see though. I may have some more to say come the day I post that 365th painting, but for now, I just want to say THANK YOU! once again to all of you who visit my blog, those who enjoy my paintings, those who take time to send me their comments — you are all very special to me! Thank you!

Second painting for today. I like how this turned out. I’d love to do more tea bags because I truly enjoyed painting this one.

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.

I really hated this while I was working on it. I had no idea how I would approach the layers of wrinkled paper, and getting the color of the pear right was a struggle as well because it almost always turned out too gray. Funny how after staring at the finished painting for a few hours it has become one of my most favorite. I like the contrast of the texture and thick paint of the paper against the smoothness of the pear.
