a real gem

i've a love of hyper-realistic painting, as you may already know, and i am awed by Carly Waito's detailed renderings of gemstones so real i can almost touch them. as it happens, this extraordinarily talented artist lives right here in Toronto, so i'm hoping to see her work in person sometime! see more of Carly's paintings on flickr, and while you're at it, check out her fabulous blog.

Wow. Absolutely wow. Photorealism and trompe l-oeuil [sp?] paintings never cease to amaze me. These are incredible!
