i’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for minerals, rocks, and geology in general. perhaps thanks to a crush on my college geology professor (so cute!), my fascination continued well after college and now i find myself drawn to anything that reminds me of rock formations and the minerals i studied during early morning classes at w&m. so i was naturally pretty happy to see these beautiful new oil paintings from carly waito (of coe & waito).

carly has been working on fine art since closing up coe & waito and will be showing this beautiful mineral series as part of a group show called “little crowns” at narwhal art projects in toronto. if you happen to be in toronto on dec 11th be sure to check out the show when it opens, or click here for more information on the artwork. thanks, carly!
