• I put a dime in the slot
    And this is what I got!

    One way in
    No way out

    I jump from

    Square to square

    Over Knights, Kings, Bishops, Queens, Rooks


    A few moves forward

    And Back

    Drawn deeper

    Into the maze
    In this nonsensical
    world and outwit
    the silliness of this artist

  • Grasp the Mental Game

    Life is like a chess play
    One by one they move:
    Pawns to a Queen – away
    Make attack to improve!

    Square to square advance
    Grasp the mental game
    Give the King his chance
    Have a patience to be tame :)

    Carefully observe adversary
    Wrong move can’t be adjust
    Chess art is like all military
    No one out there really to trust - Peter S. Quinn

Another illusion... Sort of an introduction to my next series entitled
"Chess Art" with some optical illusions, strong perspectives and
vanishing points... I took this photo a few days ago and also made
the rough sketch. Thanks for your constructive comments!

Art, imitating life, imitating art... the artist claims his technique is a

Grasp the Mental Game

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Life is like a chess play
One by one they move:
Pawns to a Queen – away
Make attack to improve!

Square to square advance
Grasp the mental game
Give the King his chance
Have a patience to be tame

Carefully observe adversary
Wrong move can’t be adjust
Chess art is like all military
No one out there really to trust

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Soul Capture, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    As a child I had MC Escher posters and books verses the "normal" childhood type things. This so reminds me of Escher and of a magical place in ones mind. Nicely done.
