This Seems Like A Cat Painting, But A Closer Look Reveals Something Breathtaking

JUNE 30, 2017  —  By Corinne S.

Sarah Jane Connors is an artist who creates beautiful masterpieces on wood, but her chosen medium is much more unique than paint.

"As a little girl, I was obsessed with finding treasure," she said. "I found that the soil in my garden was rich in treasure – full of broken pottery pieces, bits of glass and a lot of lovely little worms."

That childhood passion led to her adult self collecting an assortment of beads and buttons found in second-hand shops, with which she creates absolutely stunning and adorable portraits of animals.

With each piece, Connors glues individual beads and buttons on the canvas one at a time, taking at least a month or two to finish.

While the process is very time-consuming, the results are undeniably gorgeous.

They're so detailed that it's hard to believe they weren't painted.

But the beads and buttons definitely add texture and dimension that paint could not.
