Oil Paintings that Resemble Woven Yarn

What do you think you're looking at? Crochet art? Not quite. Toronto-based artist Caroline Larsen creates oil paintings that perfectly resemble woven yarn! I could not believe my eyes because, at first glance, her paintings tricked my eyes into believing I was looking at something entirely different!

Larsen's work explores the perception of space, paint and surface texture, The Cheaper Show explains. It's certainly nothing short of magical!
