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!

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.

This is the second daily painting today since I missed posting yesterday.

I wanted to try something “creative”. I taped a branch of grape vine to a piece of paper and drew in the grapes with red marker pens. I was thinking along the lines of trompe l’oeil.

The challenge was to make the leaves and the branch look very realistic in order to make the outline of the grapes look like they were just drawn and not part of the “real” branch.
