1. Nat King Cole would love this one

Let’s start with an easy warmup. Look over this picture. Can you see the famous face hiding behind the father and son fishing together?

Here’s a hint: The title of the painting is The Art of Fishing. Emphasis on art.

2. Turquoise dreams

Now let’s move on to one that’s a little harder. You might see a simple image of a wave crashing in the ocean for a few moments. Maybe you’re looking at the boat and squinting for a hidden face.

Don’t give up if you can’t find the hidden face. Just keep riding the wave, as a surfer would say.

3. Can you find the hidden faces in this purr-fect picture?

Not all lions roar to announce their presence. Some are quiet and majestic. Some are easy to miss.

This optical illusion is a bit tricky. Finding the hidden faces in this picture might take a while. (Hint: Not all the hidden faces in this article are human!)

4. Gorgeous gazebo

A stunning sunset makes these geese look almost angelic. Then again, it’s easy to admire geese when they’re in oil instead of in the flesh. Or in the feathers, to be more exact.

After all, a painted goose can’t run at you or honk up a storm like a real goose. Maybe that’s why the hidden face in this optical illusion has such a big smile.

Gazebos are a great way to increase your home’s resale value. They can be expensive, though. Tap or click here for three easy and affordable ways to improve your home. With these tips, your house will be more valuable when you sell.

Although the wolf on the cliff is howling forlornly, he isn’t as alone as he might think. Family might be closer than he thinks.

If you spot the hidden wolf in this painting, you’re ready to hunt for the many animal faces in this next challenging optical illusion.

This gorgeous optical illusion has a lot of secrets that are hard to spot at first. In fact, this image hides a total of six hidden human faces. (We’re not counting the hunter, of course.)

Here’s a hint: The sixth face is far from the others. Keep looking and take your time. The satisfaction once you spot the hidden face will be worth it!

7. This one might take a while

Look over the cars, the characters, the foliage, the sky and the home in this painting. As you can tell, it’s full of color and character.
