Wonderful picture. I´ll make three guesses. Correct me if I am wrong

1. Claude Monet was my immediate impression, foremost the motive

2. Second guess would be Claude Monet given his ispiration from traditional japanese art; the kói

3. My third guess is ... ehhh... Claude Monet, knowing that many of his paintings had great depth bordering to expressionism

Thanks for the beautiful picture

Darn, yours was better than mine. It does have a somewhat Monet-like quality. Let's see....

Monet:

This maybe works better for what I had in mind:

Escher?

"Three Worlds"

Yes, sometimes you get stuck on the first impression.

Three worlds

1 the water surface with the water lily leaves

2 the deep reflection (wich really excludes Monet)

3 The fish in the water under the surface

Your picture has a fourth world, the water lily bud, and a fifth, the space of the viewer

Perhaps Escher could have called his masterpiece "Four worlds" unless he mismanaged his pot training and went solipsist

Super-ego
Ego
Id

Well.

Bishop Berkeley argued that the guarantee for existens of a "thing" or "fact" or whatever was that it was perceived by god

I don´t know about Eschers´ beliefs but that might explain

Thanks. It was great fun
