We’ve featured the work of artist Shawn Huckins before on our blog. His painting series’ have a penchant for being quirky outside of the box creations.

These may look like scenes painted onto the paint chips that you pick up at your local home improvement store, but a closer look would reveal full scale paintings. These paint swatch mimics are so exacting in their layout that they give a spark to the ordinary happenings painted into them. The warm hues create a relaxing intimate space for the viewer; allowing a meaningful connection with the colors that we choose to decorate our living spaces with.

It’s freaking ridiculous how detailed these paintings are…look at this last one Foxtrot – it looks like the color window cutout is actually there!
