  • rob

  • so gorgeous…

  • anny

    i always come back to this artist, he’s really inspired me. it’s definitely one of my favorites.

  • His work remind me a bit of Francis Bacon. Very interesting use of colors!

  • The person with the coat is GREAT!

  • I absolutely love the darkness to these. In terms of painting approach they are super nice in terms of looseness of application of paint and control of colour. Imagery is a perfect balance (for me) between representational and abstract – bang on!

An Elaborate Snow Drawing by Artist Sonja Hinrichsen

Another incredible snow drawing by artist Sonja Hinrichsen (previously featured here)! Made in the snow covering Lake Catamount in Colorado last year, the site-specific piece pays homage to the Yampa River which used to run through the valley.

Helped along by roughly 50 community participants, the group’s route not only coincides with the course the original river took, the abstract designs created from their tracks in the snow mimic the meandering flow of water. See more images of “Yampa River” below!

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.
