I call these paintings and photographs "Natural Eye," because of a discovery of mine dealing with how we see in three dimensions. When we look at an object, our eyes aim at it, making the images from each eye coincide (binocular focus). All other objects in the field of view are seen in slightly different places by each eye. The brain uses one of these images to "see" the image itself, and the other to interpret how far in front of or behind the image in focus it is. This secondary image is reduced to the very threshold of perception, so that it functions only as a placement clue in three-dimensional space.
The photographs have two overlapping images, one very faint, giving the information the "second eye" gives in binocular vision.

The paintings have a very faint "aura" around the images, indicating their placement in the visual field.NOTE: The 3-D effect can be enhanced by closing one eye;the remaining eye contains all the information normally received by both eyes. Also, press f11 (in Windows) to see an enlarged image, where the effect is more obvious. NOTE 2: Once you have clicked on the link and gone to the picture, if you click on the picture, you will get a greatly enlarged view of it, and can look at details.
