Very fine Trompe L'Oeil Art on a Walk in Asheville on Christmas Day

The family likes to take a drive when everything is closed - when we can look all around and park wherever we want - in a stunning city like Asheville that is a rewarding thing to do.

Found this fabulous building along the French Broad River decorated with beautiful
fool-the -eye painting on the old facade.

Here is the painted part of the building as I approach it. Old brinks are stuccoed over and then the surface is painted with the murals.



Getting a bit closer now



And finally some detail

The cat looks real from afar, thanks to those wonderful shadows! The sculpture, too!

8. Beautifully captured Mira! Thank you.

...and what an amazing gift to have a vision and ability to transform something like an old stucco'd brick wall into something so awesome.
