Using a combination of high speed photography and precise paint splashes, artist Jack Long creates liquid flowers, which are basically paint that has splashed in such a way and captured at the right moment that it looks like a flower.
Even more impressively, a lot of the pieces depict flowers in vases, rather than just the flower itself.

i guess you could say he made a splash in the art community
- the hunger games: “I remember everything about you,” says Peeta, tucking a loose strand of hair behind my ear. “You’re the one who wasn’t paying attention.”
- catching fire: “Let’s start with something more basic. Isn’t it strange that I know you’d risk your life to save mine… but I don’t know what your favorite color is?” he says.
- mockingjay: “You’re a painter. You’re a baker. You like to sleep with the windows open. You never take sugar in your tea. And you always double-knot your shoelaces.”
I like when you learn a secret about somebody and then you look at the things they say and do in the light of that secret and you understand them a little more and why they are the way they are
Jane Radstrom is a painter and designer based in Austin, TX. After studying drawing and painting at Watts Atelier California, based on meticulous renaissance traditions of masterful realism, Jane attended Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL, earning a BFA in Illustration. Jane creates works which she considers to be contemporary realism. “I have been inspired by photographic effects, specifically the manipulation of exposure to create images that look “real”, but contain more than a single still image. In choosing poses, I focus on nuances of body language and expression. It is important to me to show unidealized beauty and what I think of as a modern sense of confidence in candid moments. I hope that when you stand in front of a piece you can feel the presence of the person depicted.” Great thanks to artforadults for introducing us Jane Radstrom.
