Fresh Art: Fish Tank Scenes

Leave a comment

Kim Keever uses plaster, other materials, and a large aquarium to create a variety of land and water landscapes. He then fills the aquarium with water and adds special powders that create billowing clouds and misty effects. He works fast to capture the quickly changing scene on camera – resulting in some pretty amazing photos.

This scene of trees and mountains is called “West”.

Mr. Keever calls this green cave scene  ”Eight Months”. Perhaps that’s how long it took to create?

This is “Estuary”. Can you spot the bird?

Here is “Fallen Tree”.

These caves are called “Buried Dreams”.

And last but not least, my personal favorite “Waterfall”.

Which is your favorite?

Fresh Art: Postage Stamp Painting

Leave a comment

Molly Rausch paints the extended scenes around the edges of postage stamps:

“Each stamp painting begins with an actual postage stamp that is glued down to the paper. Then Rausch paints around the stamp, extending the scene, with watercolor and gouache. As a result, the paintings are quite small – usually around 3 inches tall. Everything is done freehand with a brush; she does not use pens or pencils. She does not paint on the stamp itself. And she does not research the subject, so the extension is completely invented and should not be tested for accuracy.”
