Up on Etsy - Steamboat Willie Mickey Mouse Scrabble Spells Smile - Daily Acrylic Painting

"Smile," acrylic on panel, 8" x 8"/$99

Available on Etsy.

This painting was completed in the "Trompe L'Oeil" style, meaning my goal is to fool the eye into believing there is a torn illustration and several Scrabble tiles attached to the board. I wanted to try a few paintings that used stills from some of the lovely old black and white animations I loved as a child, then crinkle them up, like an old photograph. Adding a simple message to this nostalgic imagery, like "smile," helps me remember to view life a little more simply.

Thanks for looking!
