Re: "WWII Rations" - Trompe l'oeil Painting

Thank you Grace, Bertoni, and Clode!

I'm hoping to get this painting into a few competitions come the new year. It's been awhile since I've shown anything locally in the Chicago area.

Also, I even made a short video of this painting featuring Glenn Miller's "In the Mood" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWR-_jjv2Rc

Re: "WWII Rations" - Trompe l'oeil Painting

Wow!!! I had no idea at first (excuse my ignorance) that each item was individually painted. I knew of trompe l'oeil but had to actually look it up to understand it. To deceive the eye is an understatement. This is superlative.

Thank you Chris! I truly appreciate the complement.

The trompe l'oeil genre is fairly small so these types of paintings are fairly uncommon; I blame the time and patience needed to complete this type of painting. However, it is a very exciting approach to see when done correctly, especially in person.

Simply (in the nicest possible way) smashing. Accuracy and detail are incredible.

Thank you Derek! Spam seems to be a hit or miss food most people. Some like it, some don't. Thankfully there are more options these days

Re: "WWII Rations" - Trompe l'oeil Painting

This painting is extraordinary. Do you draw and paint from life?

Thank you! Yes, but I also use a quality photo reference just to see how the camera handles the image, especially highlights.

Wonderful job.

Thanks Keith!

Re: "WWII Rations" - Trompe l'oeil Painting

What fantastic subjects to paint! This work is fascinating to me; not just because it is painted with amazing, impeccable precision, but because it tells a story. I love it!

Re: "WWII Rations" - Trompe l'oeil Painting

Thank you Clode and Mark!

I managed to get this painting in this summer's issue of Studio Visit magazine. I'm excited to see my first publication in print! Below is what my one page spread will look like.
