Postcards for Ants, Artist Creates A Miniature by Lorraine Loots
Cape Town-based artist Lorraine Loots took up a remarkable 365-day challenge: to create a miniature painting every single day for an entire year. The artist began her challenge in the beginning of 2013 and, after enjoying the routine of her successful challenge, she decided to continue with the “Postcards for Ants” project in 2014.
The young artist has dedicated this year’s works exclusively to Cape Town, which happens to be the official World Design Capital of 2014. Fans of Loots’s work can write to the artist and book up-coming paintings or prints, or suggest Cape Town-themed ideas or places for her to paint.
“Where I Belong” is a paper cut light box installation work of hand cut watercolor on paper assembled in a shadow box that is backlit with LED lights. The work is a collaboration by Hari & Deepti

Animals Painted On Delicate Feather Canvases by Jamie Homeister
Jamie Homeister, a folk artist from New Albany, Indiana, paints exquisite portraits of animals and birds on the most unusual canvas – feathers. Her magnificent featherwork is influenced by her Canadian heritage, but she also depicts themes from Native American culture.
Jamie receives the feather that she works on from the people who commission her to paint images of their birds – the same ones that actually shed the feathers. “I do much of it by commission – many of my parrot-feather paintings depict the parrots from whom the feathers themselves fell,” the artist explains.
“I’ve always been intrigued by the lifestyles of all those who walked this Earth before us, so feather painting just always made sense to me,” Jamie said. “Featherwork is incredibly humbling media. The feathers splice, buckle, splinter and shed under the weight of paint.”
Miyajima Deer The deer are a symbol of Miyajima and you can see them elegantly wandering the island everywhere. The deer are sacred and believed to be a messenger of the gods in Shinto. They are treated very well by the locals and aren’t afraid of people.
