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.

  1. Incorporating the tools / scale reference items (coins, etc) as part of the overall design is a very nice touch.
    I have seen many great compostions destroyed when the artist would just toss them in the picture as an afterthought.

    Keep up the great work!
