Remember playing around on MS Paint and thinking you were the next Picasso with your multi-colored scribbles and filled in blocks? Well, Sydney-based artist Miranda Lambert, otherwise known as Lazybones, is basically the Van Gogh of MS Paint artwork. By day Lambert is an HR assistant, but during her spare time on the weekends and in the evenings, she produces beautiful images of island scenes on the outdated technology of MS Paint.
Using images of sunsets for color inspiration, Lambert’s digital paintings take her about a day per image as she works for hours getting the color gradients and mountain ridges just right. The paintings are minimalistic and rarely stray from her choice to depict seascapes and mountain ridges. The results are fanciful and bleak, the bright colors splashed across each image evoking feelings of being on a hot, sandy beach on a deserted island.
Each of her paintings are captioned with little blurbs such as “a drawing about finding something and letting it go” and “a drawing about when you leave the party to be alone for a bit” that help to resonate the bleak feeling found throughout each image.
