Visual artist Stephanie Whittaker is showing her work in a way I've never before encountered. She's currently holding an art show via her Instagram account.

The idea is unusual but it's actually quite ingenious. The show began on April 28, and Stephanie will unveil one work of art each day until May 23. So far she's show 3 paintings of Janet Jackson, Sade, and Aretha Franklin, and I'm ready to break open my piggy bank and make a purchase. Check them out below.

Stephanie also has a number of other great paintings on her Instagram account as well.
