I love these works by the South African artist Lorraine Loots. She started out back in 2013 doing a painting a day for a whole year which became the 365 Paintings for Ants project. Her miniature a day challenge was a success and she has continued the practice each year since. In 2014 she produced the 365 Postcards for Ants series where she explored her home city of Cape Town each day. Lovers of her work can bid on the original miniature painting or a very limited edition print of each piece is also sold.
In 2015 the artist is doing 100 miniatures with 10 prints of each work to be produced. She’s working on themed days like Microcosm Mondays, Tiny Tuesdays, Fursdays and Free Fridays. Potluck 100 is the name of the newest project. I couldn’t find an unsold work anywhere on her page so I’m guessing there’s a whole lot of people out there liking her work just as much as me.
