This is a smaller painting, the body of it is 8" x 6". That doesn't include the mouse, or should I say, half the mouse! I wanted to try something a bit different, so I played with the positions of the cheeses and the mouse. The illusion comes once again from the interplay of shadows. The shadow of the cheeses and the shadow of the mouse lie in differing directions, which creates the illusion of the mouse on top of the painting. He thinks they are real cheeses, too!
This painting sold from the gallery in less than 24 hours, thank you TD!
