Postcards for Ants is an ongoing painting project by Lorraine Loots. Since January 1, 2013, the Cape Town artist has been creating a new miniature painting everyday.
The paintings are highly intricate and detailed, each one just the size of a small coin. Lorraine works with fine-tipped paintbrushes and pencils with the help of a magnifying glass to create each teensy painting, and the results are mesmerizing. The subject matter can range from animals, classic vehicles to everyday objects. It’s impossible to get bored looking at her artwork, taking in the smallest details.
