"The Stick Figure"
It may be a device to pull the viewer in saying that art is for anyone.

Though it may scare the viewer away. He got to theoretical.

Or the stick figure is an engaging motif which at first is to simple but later allows more and more ideas.

What is realism?
Are these Greek "IDEAS" more real than a thing in front of you.

am i painting an illusion? or when i make an obect and adhere it to the canvas...is it greater realism than what chuck close does.

stick vs trompe l'oil

OPINIONS??
