A skillful homage to Escher, but strikingly original as well! I especially like the way the eyes of the woman in the reflected picture seem to gaze at the real apple in the background.

Beautiful. I love how the reflection is a real apple. I get to be an apple looking at my own reflection :) Fantastic.

Incredible. A couple questions. Are you looking at a still life image went painting this and how do you manage to blend the acrylic without showing any brush stroke?

Thank you. I'm mostly working from photographs and the objects themselves sometimes. As far as blending, it's just practise and I do use an airbrush to smooth out larger areas.

Somehow I think of Rene Magritte.

Phenomenal work.

One of the things that I always appreciate in your work is your ability to paint natural light. I appreciate the times you do artificial light, of course, but I just mention it because I think it's worth making a point of. You just seem to caputer a certain atmosphere that I can't quite put into words.

Incredible. This is very M.C. Escher. His use of perspective was amazing, and I've seen many copies, but none as good as these. Not to mention, you can barely tell that this is done on canvas, or that it's even a painting. Very good work, as is the rest. Keep it up!

I thought this was a photo when i first clicked on it, but i was wondering how you made the objects in the background appear blurry.
