There are so many things going on in each of these paintings by Ricky Allman, I feel like I could study them for hours! Every time I look at one of them I feel like I see something in it that I didn’t before! The colors and shapes are pretty great too. Check out more of Ricky’s work here.
These beautiful images of waves are by Japanese photographer Syoin Kajii. Syoin is a Buddhist monk residing at a seaside temple on Sado Island, where he works on his photography as well. His photos from this gorgeous set were recently featured in Foam Photography Magazine. I would love to get lost in any of them!

I was poking around on Penguin & Fish (one of my favorites) when I saw her post about illustrator Anneka Tran – responsible for the playful work above. Aren’t they great? I especially love the miso mermaid at the top – apparently she is a favorite of many others as well! Check out the rest of Anneka’s work on her site and her blog.

These amazing images in rice crops are located in Japan! They are made with careful planning, strategically planting different colors of rice plants so that they grow into a picture. The town of Inakadate in particular is known for its skill in creating rice art, but you can find rice pictures all across the country in the summertime! Check out many more photos of amazing rice paddy crop art on Pink Tentacle.
