I luv this public art trompe l’oeil bakery window on the outside of a restaurant building! It couldn’t be more perfect with the real tree hanging across the top and the bench just outside where you’d be hanging out waiting for someone to call you in for fresh baked pie!
I’m not usually a fan of trompe l’oeil painting style, especially when I’ve seen them inside homes. Generally, it looks so fake I just can’t even make the mental leap.
Trompe l’oeil style works best when all the elements around the painting work with it to keep up the illusion. Here’s some other great pieces that have all the elements working together to make you a believer in magic (click on the photos to link to their source)!
