Painting - Oil On Canvas
This piece started with a muddy, chipped, ornate frame rescued from the trash. I roughly patched up the missing decorations and painted it white with a semi-gloss interior latex paint.
Later, I decided to paint a large magnolia flower inspired by the trees just outside my front door. Along the way I wondered if I could paint a shadow on the frame that would give the illlusion of the flower poking out past the pictute plane. Much to my surprise, it worked!
The effect in real life is startling. For this print site, I added a black background to accentuate the contours of the frame and to faciliate a black gallery wrap, museum wrap, acrylic, or aluminium print I don't think it would look good as a frame within a frame.
What I like the best about this oblect is that the painting is un-refined and sketchy, the frame is real and the cast "shadow" is just a stroke of gray paint—but it works !
