i’m jealous of carly waito

Ok, I know that diamonds are supposed to be a girl’s best friend, but who needs diamonds when you could have one of these! A lovely chunk of rock painted, yes I said painted, by Toronto based artist Carly Waito. Oh my word… amethyst, a little fool’s gold, and a bit of smokey quartz… seriously, I want them all!!! Stunning!

    They are ‘jaw droppingly’ good. Its kinda hard to visualize their scale though… I wish there were more pictures..

    Thanks for sharing, too TJC.

    Wow, I’m so excited to see this here! Carly is originally from my home city! If you like her hyperrealism check out another homegrown talent: Elizabeth Buset -http://www.elizabethbuset.com/

    I really love them both
