In this section are displayed my decorative paintings, commonly defined as “trompe l’oeil”.

What is a trompe l’oeil? Here is the full definition of the French expression trompe l'oeil by the Merriam-Webster dictionary:
    1:  a style of painting in which objects are depicted with photographically realistic detail;

also the use of similar technique in interior decorating-
    2:  something that misleads or deceives the senses:  illusion.
In few words, the expression "trompe l'oeil" means literally "to deceive the eye".

There is not a specific painting technique for a trompe l’oeil,

it can be carried out by fresco, tempera,

oil, encaustic etc., what is important

is how realistic shows the result.

Enjoy colors and

shapes!
