    Why paint wine corks all the things in the world and he uses this amazing skill to paint wine corks

    would've saved countless hours with one snap of the camera…photo/painting would probably come out exactly the same

    #20 and #21 cleaver way out of doing dishes. I can just hear the argument: Sorry honey, I can't clean or put away the dishes I'm still painting them… maybe next week.

    No, these are photos. Photos of paintings. Paintings of photos. Photos of the objects.

    boring photos make boring paintings.

      if photo-realism is what they're looking for, why not take pictures.

  • Jack Roberts

    Ultra realism is a useless movement. Maybe pre-19th century, when there were no cameras. All they are useful for now is a show of skill. Useless skill.

  • joel

    photo paint scanners, people. they are really expensive and hard to find.
