An Artist Paints Tiny Masterpieces Inside Her Empty Altoids Tins

Two years ago, Heidi Annalise quit her government job in Washington DC and returned to her home state of Colorado to paint– out of handheld mint cans. She spends most of her days “frolicking in meadows” and painting the wilderness and has since managed to rack up an Instagram following of more than 50K with her adorable Altoids painting kits, living quite happily off her miniature craft. She’s basically a character straight out of Wes Anderson’s mind.

“When your paintings are this tiny, you don’t have to worry about lugging any solvents around,” says Heidi on her blog. “And the mint tin also doubles as storage for your wet painting.”
