One of Los Angeles artist Joe Bravo's tortilla paintings is shown at an exhibition at the Mexican Cultural Institute in Los Angeles March 29, 2007. Bravo first started the acrylic paintings on tortillas when he was in college and couldn't afford canvases. The exhibit has broken the gallery's attendance records and the paintings are selling for as much as $1,800 each. REUTERS/Lucy Nicholson (UNITED STATES)

That is so amazing! I think really great artist can paint on anything! I've gotten e-mails about a man who paints 3-D on sidewalks and they are incredible! Thanks for sharing these.

Thanks Carol. I have seen those, also. I did not post the ice scuptures and sand sculptures, thinking that most people have seen them. He is a local artist and I like to get the word out about the "not so famous" artists.

I just like to make a note about the first artist I posted, Joe Bravo. He started painting at very young age on tortillas, because he was too poor to buy a canvas.

A friend of mine did these out of flower petals and other plant materials, and I am very proud of her.
One is titled The Mother Church of Armenia and the other An Armenian Mountain Landscape.
You have to squint your eyes while viewing so that you lose some of the details.
She gave these to me as gifts.
