"Framed - Green Apple" 14" x 11" oil

(click here to bid) or to check other auctions.

This is a trompe l'oeil painting. (French for 'deceive the eye') is an art technique involving extremely realistic imagery in order to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects appear in three dimensions, instead of actually being a two-dimensional painting.
It's kind of cool how the frame and apple look like they are floating in front of the wall.
