A Trompe l’oeil painting (fool the eye) of vintage sleigh bells on barn wood with note cards tacked to the wood as well. This classic style of painting has been popular since the 1600s and features a shallow depth of field with clear shadows to create an illusion of actual depth and enhance reality.
