A Pink Dogwood panel with faux oak, trompe l’oeil frame. 

This was inspired by the work of the brilliant decorator, muralist and fine artist Pascal Amblard. 

I silver leafed the Masonite panel, masked off the frame border and created a Trompe l’oeil Oak frame. 

The floral photo model was shot in my neighborhood, a huge Pink Dogwood tree in full bloom. 

I’ve painted 2 versions of this panel. One hangs in my mothers living room and the other was sold at an art show in 2012.
