I decided to undertake a personal project of learning how to paint in a Trompe L’oeil fashion. Was I good at it? No. I was not. However, I wasn’t terrible at it, and it was fun so I decided this undertaking was worth it. I painted over a metal fire escape ladder thing in an old apartment building in Philadelphia that probably should have been condemned.

It is grey Trompe L’oeil!

Grey is the color I like for these sorts of projects. And, today, I’m going to end this post here because I think it’s better to show than tell my lackluster skills at Trompe L’oeil in showing an example of it that’s not terrible only in that it illustrates the point I’m trying to make far better than I can articulate.
