New Painting: Pink Tearbursts

Hello! This poor blog has been seriously abandoned (GULP), but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy making and designing.

One of the things I hadn't done in a while was get to work on a canvas, and I had really, really missed it. This piece was commissioned by a fellow lover of pattern and appreciator of rhinestones (yay!) who wanted a custom piece for their home. I painted this multi-layered, sunset-hued rectangle of joy for her.

My favourite thing, as ever, about working with metallics and rhinestones is the way they change appearance depending on the light, either glowing brightly or sinking into the background. I also love the way rhinestones cast shadows when the light hits them.

I hope you enjoy living with your new painting, A!
