November 17, 2012 - Garden Path

We had come in the back way of a familiar building to attend a meeting on the third floor.

On our way out, as we were retracing our twists and turns, we came upon a corridor that seemed to go on for a lot longer than was possible.

The end wall was decorated with this painting of a garden path. I think you can tell from the image that the perspective is just right to make you think it goes on beyond the wall on which it is painted.

(Not bad for an oldie cell phone.)

I want one of those for real when I win the lotto and re-do my 'house'- (in the late '50's you'd call it a house- i guess you still could- but compared to what they are building just down the road, this is a guest cottage)

Until then you can paint the end of a hallway to look like it opens onto a huge Olympic sized swimming pool filled with turquoise colored water and a sole occupant in the pool that looks like Richard Parker ...

Which Richard Parker. . .?

I'm not all that fond of trompe l'oeil. It seems to require more suspended disbelief than I can cope with on a daily basis.

Stick some well-positioned mirrors in my house to increase potential size and light.
Then laugh as I am given jumpy moments catching my own moving relfection from time to time.

And have bad dreams about what I may have accidentally given permission to come through... Because gibbering wrecks are funny.
