This art takes us back to the renaissance. Trompe l’oeil is an Illusion that tricks the eye using linear and atmospheric perspective. This technique uses realistic imagery to create an optical illusion of depth. The artist can combine a household doorway and arch, blend them with an illustrated arch creating the illusion of another room. Creating a space in a dining room with wine bottles, grapes, cheese and rows of grapevines in the background, can take you away from your everyday life to a place of beauty and relaxation. If you have a favorite place you love to travel to or a farm house you grew up in and have a decent picture, with a little paint and some brushes, the artist can bring the scene back to life for you on a wall or ceiling. If you have/had a favorite pet or horse, they can be placed in any scene. If you love the beach and have a favorite picture of it, a wall or walls can be painted to look as if you were on the beach where you can enjoy it for years to come. A nice option is you may choose the time of day of the painting, the items in the scene and the details that make it custom for your taste and lifestyle. These custom painted surfaces, decorative or landscape, become fine art paintings and the trickery of the eye is always a topic of conversation.
