    Definitely one of my favorites
    love the colors and perspective

  • I love the mix of geometric shapes and lines with the textured strokes and layering. The dark colours and red really play with your thoughts on what the paintings are trying to tell you. I get the sense that all is not right with the people in the images, a sort of ghostly feel in some and the feeling of death in others. Really interesting pieces though, I’d love to see them in a gallery so I could study them better.

  • The 4th painting… A kind of island bursting out from a blood ocean… I’d like to see it in real. Must be quite spectacular!

  • Alex

    What you don’t get from these photos is the pretty thick ‘gel’ glazes he uses. All of the red and black is thick layers of gel paint, with the lines and lighter areas masked off when this is applied. Picture 5 shows this in particular

  • michelle ruby

    Damn. I want to be in your mind.

  • willem

    Wicked. Love the color scheme.

  • Jerry

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.
