Bouquet in a Box by Jean Olliver
Original Oil on Canvas
Price includes Frame.
“Thinking outside the box” was my inspiration to think “inside the box”. However, not being a contrarian, objects painted inside a box have always appealed to me. The style of “trompe l’ oeil” or “trick the eye”, is a challenge, and requires the use of realism, with highlights and shadows that allow the object in the box to appear three dimensional. Searching antique stores for old beat-up boxes, pottery and vases, is part of the fun!
