Everyday, Cape Town-based artist Lorraine Loots creates a miniature painting for her ongoing project “365 Postcards for Ants.” Using paint brushes and pencils, Loots draws superbly detailed paintings of mundane objects and landscapes, that are barely larger than a small coin. The artist has been doing this since January 1, 2013. This is the second phase of her project.
As the project evolved, people started booking sentimental dates making suggestions for the painting to be done on that day. Every day, she posted the completed picture online and unsold pieces could be reserved by commenting on the picture.
