Rob Gonsalves Tile Paining Optical Illusion

Okay, so I’m pretty sure that this next optical illusion is a Rob Gonsalves painting, but I could be wrong. And, if that’s the case, please correct me. Rob Gonsalves is just one of my favorite painters, and I’d like to think that I could recognize his work anywhere.

And this, my friends, looks like a Gonsalves classic!


The way Gonsalves paints his images is simple stunning! His paintings are always pretty realistic, but of course, there’s always some sort of weird twist. (Or he wouldn’t be my favorite painter, right?)

In this painting, the first thing we notice is the large, beautiful house. It also looks like there’s been a flood and the house is surrounded by water. Yikes! But, at the edge of the water, a man appears to be laying tile to make it seem as if the water is not there at all. Definitely a funky image to try and wrap your head around, that’s for sure!
