The images above, amazingly, are small oil paintings, created by the very talented Carly Waito. Carly is a Toronto based artist who paints these fantastic little paintings that so perfectly capture the essence of these natural gems and minerals. What’s inspiring to me is how perfect she gets them. The lighting pours through each gem, making them look entirely magical. Definitely visit her website and check out the rest of her pieces, they’re all equally as beautiful as the ones above.
