Oil painter Carly Waito takes realism to the extreme with her work.  After photographing semiprecious gemstones and minerals with a macro lens, she paints them on masonite in excruciating detail, exposing the beauty in objects we do not normally see up close.

You’re nuts Carly!! Your paintings look like photographs!
