This painting is 10″ x 12″. The inspiration is the Queen of Diamonds, the model is Mandalynn Rea. The piece will be on display at The Hive Gallery in Los Angeles in March 2011.


Block in color.


Starting some floating gems.

Started her face to get the basic vibe for the piece.

Tweaking the gems.

Started detailing the dress.

The background felt static and did not like the flat “cone” background. Added two new gem types and started to shift the cones.

Detailed dress further.

Added pattern to the dress and iridescent sheen to gems. Decided I did not like the pink stones, so those will be developed further also. Need more facets!
