Visual Treat

Maren's and Lauren's Land of Cockaigne
by Justin Hayward
oil on canvas
displayed at the Nicolaysen - Casper, WY
I could have spent hours examining this fun painting at the Nicolaysen in early October. It was amazing and filled with so many interesting details and objects. The painting was difficult to photograph because the sun was streaming through the windows to the left and the display lighting created a glare.

  6. It's fun and a bit creepy at the same time. I too have a hard time believing it's a painting and not a photograph. What an amazing amount of patience and fine motor skills to get it all done with such detail. g
