A very easy drawing of a hole in paper.

Step 1: The Shape

Picture of The Shape

First create a thin, 3-4 inch wide, oval. Much likes the one seen. It doesn't have to be light but make sure it's not too dark.

Step 2: Basics

Next draw an arch starting from the middle left going up and then end on the middle right(the peak should be less than a centimeter).

Step 3: Detail

Next add vertical lines within the boundary of the arc and the smaller side of the oval. Also retrace everything in a darker shade.

Step 4: Shading/Coloring

This next part is very easy. Fill in the larger part of the oval with a dark shade, the whole things does not have to be covered. Now take a tissue and smear it within the lines.

Step 5: Shading/Coloring

It can also look like a coin a something stuck to the ceiling!

optical illusions, people love them because they fool our eyes.

If our eyes can't be completely trusted, than can't we be fooled about our salvation?

Matthew 7:21-23 "Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day,‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers.
