CRYSTAL HANDS

Andy Espinoza and I have teamed up again to create a series of jeweled pieces (you may recall our past collaboration here).

The magic of this piece began when I went to see the Jewels by JAR Exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibition blew me away… standing in complete darkness, with spotlights shimmering off of precious stones in the form of flowers, animals, and other incredible creations.

Andy and I spoke of collaborating again, and this exhibit had sparked an image that I couldn’t shake from my mind. Combining jewels with his incredibly poetic oil renderings of the human form.

I received Andy’s painting in the mail, and began layering gouache on top to bring the jewels to life (Inspired by this piece). Once the gouache was set, I applied Swarovski crystals to complete the piece.

If you follow me on instagram, you know that I’m most inspired to paint in the late evening hours. Maybe it’s from the years of staying up late painting as a kid, or after work when I had a separate day job, or the silence of the world fast asleep, but those midnight hours are some of my favorite to dream…
