Trompe L'oeil

Found these in my Inbox (thanks Darcie!)

These mind-blowing Trompe L'oeil (trick the eye) 3D murals are painted on the sides of buildings by artist John Pugh.

Main Street, Los Gatos , California. Even the woman peering into the ruin is part of the mural.

Taylor Hall, California State University , Chico , California. The Doric-style columns are actually nothing but paint.

Honolulu, Hawaii. This mural took two months of studio work to plan and another six months to execute with the help of 11 other artists. Featured are Queen Liliuokalani, the last monarch of the Hawaiian Islands , and Duke Kahanamoku, the ultimate father of surfing.

This mural at the Cafe Trompe L'oeil, San Jose , California , is entitled "Art Imitating Life Imitating Art Imitating Life". This customer doesn't leave at closing time.

Twenty-nine Palms, California . Valentine the bull and a patient buzzard are waiting for the artist to awake.

Bay in a Bottle, Santa Cruz , California . The passer-by is part of the mural.
Looks like a nice spot to rest your weary feet on a sidewalk in front of the Sarasota County Health Center, Florida.

"Slowin' Down to Take a Look" in Winslow , Arizona.
Included, of course, is "a girl, my lord, in a flat bed Ford slowin' down to take a look at me."
