Most painters try to project what they see into their canvass. They create art by painting an interpretation of what they see. Their are some who create realistic paintings and others who create abstract ones. Each artist has their own preference in how they want to express their art. One artist I stumbled in the web does the opposite of what most painters usualy do.
The photos she creates out of these living paintings are as stunning as the ones we see in art galleries. The photos can almost pass as paintings on canvass. What is really astounding is that if people just look at the photos and neglect the description they wouldn't notice anything unusual about it, most of the viewers who are oblivious of the facts will admire her works as paintings.
