Lorraine Loots paints teeny tiny scenes (smaller than a pound coin) with great details, colours and shading. She started this project on the 1st of January, 2013 and thought that it could be a nice little idea to stick to everyday. It then became bigger when people started booking days and requesting a specific idea to be drawn. Can I just buy them all?

Darlene Cole

Canadian artist Darlene Cole paints enchanting scenes with flowers, bears, horses and children. They look like they are part of a dream world where everything is peaceful and colourful. *sigh* I love each and everyone of them.

Thick pastel paint on wood, what’s not to love? I simply adore these paintings by Australian artist Lisa Madigan. And not only are they lovely as hell but they ALSO have super sweet names such as Kiss-Kiss, Banana Flower or Heart Pop. Want!

Jessica Harrisson | Enamel

These pretty ladies have been tattooed all over by Scotland-based artist Jessica Harrison. Using vintage ceramic statuettes of young women of high society, she gives them a little twist by painting tiny detailed tattoos. These add a tough and rebellious touch to the little ladies, and I couldn’t love them more.

Hospitals being such terribly depressing places, 15 artists have been commissioned to redecorate the London Children’s hospital. The result is a mix of patterns, animals, flowers and above all bold colours, that will hopefully brighten up some of the little patients.

Such a good idea!

Christopher Gee

Christopher Gee is an English painter who creates moody and beautiful scenes. He usually paints small intimate portraits of animals and sad boys. He takes his inspiration from folk art and northern Renaissance painting. These mysterious scenes, dominated by the moon, an eclipse or simply a very dark night make the viewer feel like they are entering a story and something is about to happen.

In Will Cotton‘s world, houses are made of gingerbread and clouds of candy floss. Naked women lavish in cream and sweet bubbles, wear lollipop hats and ride whipped cream giant fish. I want to be part of his world and spend my entire life licking my surroundings.

Artist Rebecca Szeto gives new life to old mass-produced paintbrushes by carving and painting them into beautiful portraits of aristocratic dames seen in historical paintings. By doing this, she questions the notions of beauty and value. She also refers to the act of painting by painting on the tool itself. Aren’t they just beautiful?

Aitch

When I found Romanian artist Aitch’s work online, via The Jealous Curator’s blog, I instantly fell in love. I mean, who wouldn’t? These packagings are just too cute to be true. I wish they were real though. Anyway, I ended up browsing the artist’s website and I LOVE pretty much everything this artist makes. Look at these:

Aren’t these simply amazing? Yes, yes they are.

Aren’t these super super pretty? Yes? I LOVE them (I wish my sketchbook looked like that). Inspired by her childhood memories, vintage treasures and “the weird and wacky”, Danielle Kroll has taken the mission of brightening up our day. She definitely succeeded.
