I think my two favorite things might be the ocean and art. I’m endlessly inspired by both, so it’s no wonder I’m in love with the breathtaking photo-realistic paintings of Ran Ortner. His work is so precise, it doesn’t seem real. Or maybe that’s the thing: it looks so impeccably real, you can hardly believe that it was hand painted on these oversized canvases that demand attention.

Last week, I went to the opening of his exhibition at Robert Miller Gallery, and it was so beautiful to be surrounded by these ostensibly similar but, in truth, such diverse and dynamic interpretations of the sea, movement, and the stillness of certain moments.

If you’re in New York, the exhibition is on until February 20! More details here.

LOVE his work. What do you think?
