One Sunday last month we were sitting in The Tasting Room restaurant in Fredrick, Maryland.
Looking out the window we spied a gentleman looking at us out a window.
At second glance we realized he was a painting on the wall.
Closer examination and then confirmed when we left the restaurant revealed that everything about him and the windows was a painting. Trompe l'oeil its called.
Across to the other corner we found the windows that inspired the paintings we were admiring.
The City of Fredrick has a lovely park along Carroll Creek with tromp l'oeil on the bridges. So the stone you see there below is painted.
The iron gate? Painted.
Looking closer at the stones you see etched designs, but no they aren't etched in stone, they are painted.
This angel looks a bit out of whack only because it was painted to be viewed from the window in the art center.
See it looks so much better from there.
It's a lovely walk and likely will be quite well traveled come warmer weather.
Walking back to our car we spied this window on a building. Is it real?
