Everyday paintings

Mundane Ontario scenes recreated.

I came across Mike Bayne’s work again a couple of days ago and his photo-realistic paintings still continue to blow me away. The Kingston-based painter creates extraordinary miniature paintings of seemingly ordinary Ontario scenes. (The pictured image, for example, is five inches by five inches.) Although the subject matter is very familiar there is something very melancholic and poetic about these tiny works that draw you in.

This week’s Frandoms are by Dave Roberts, ECD and partner, Sid Lee.
