original oil paintings

Inspired by the genre of trompe l'oeil painting this is a classic letter rack painting. Often they were designed to make a political point - this one is not political, rather an exercise in creating a believable three dimensional effect within a shallow depth of field.

I've been considering keeping a notebook of ideas for paintings, inspirations, intentions, etc. But I haven't quite gotten on board with the discipline. So for now, I'm painting notebooks!
