Trick The Eye Windows are realistic looking window scenes that fool the viewer…if only for a moment to bring a “Wow!”experience to the viewer. They are generally done on canvas or wood panels and then installed on site along with faux wall treatments¬†or wall murals…but can also be painted directly on walls. Here are a few examples painted for Sharp Hospital and other clients.
