Paintings for Ants by Lorraine Loots

quote [Potluck 100 | Paintings for Ants is a project by Cape Town-based miniaturist painter Lorraine Loots. The project follows on 2013's 365 Paintings for Ants and 2014's 365 Postcards for Ants.

A collection of 100 miniatures are to be painted throughout 2015. These will be painted over 25 weeks, on themed days, namely: Microcosm Mondays, Tiny Tuesdays, Fursdays and Free Fridays. The weeks will be announced randomly as the year goes along, the dates of the paintings thus becoming the "potluck" element.

All 100 original paintings will be auctioned on Instagram, framed in raw wood and exhibited, before being sent to their owners in February 2016. A limited edition of 10 prints will be released for each of the 100 paintings. The prints will be released later in the year].
