Santa Claus Baby New Year

I happened to be in Brentwood on a sunny yet cold day. I finally did something that I’ve long wanted to do—take a few pictures of the Gateway Community Development Corporation building.

The Gateway CDC building is located in a small yet cozy looking cottage.

At first glance one would think that he/she is looking at some front windows until you get a close-up view of those “windows” and soon realize that they aren’t really windows. They are actually paintings.

Both of these painted false “windows” are actually a style of art known as trompe l’oeil.

One side of the building has real windows along with a sign explaining what the Gateway Community Development Corporation is and what it does (which you can read about online right here).

The other side of the building also has real windows along with plenty of open ground with a picnic table. I can imagine that it would be the perfect spot for a picnic on a warm sunny day.
