Dreaming Of Harry Winston, 6x6 Acrylic

Well, it's that time again, when my Challenge Group posts their monthly interpretations of a theme or idea.  This month the theme was "Dream".  First of all, I'm completely lost when it comes to 'making stuff up' about a painting, and this is why I never thought of myself as a creative person for many years.  I started this and was really going places with it, till my loving husband told me I needed to make it 'sparkle' more.  OK.... I darkened the background, changed the color, changed it back, repainted the 'steps' on the inside of the stone, changed the shape of the diamond, gave it double claws like a 'real' HW, and then declared it completely dead.  If you check the Challenge Blog you'll see I did a Mermaid's Dream.  Just thought you'd get a chuckle out of this.  No, it's not something I own.  I just love sparkles, and.. let's be honest, in real life they're pretty sparkly!

As an aside, I've been paying more attention to my Studio Blog, and, well, Paco's Blog is featuring him and my MARTINI!

This one is NFS (not for sale)


  1. Wow, this is an ambitious project Kelley and I think you did a pretty good job on it. I would not know where to start on something like this! BTW how do you get those perfect circles!!

  2. bling bling
    dream on baby- you'll get that rock someday

  4. What a fun little painting! We all love bling- if only in our dreams!

  5. But you used a Tiffany blue background :-p Brand confusion!

  6. Thanks guys, and Nini... you know your Jewelry stores - I didn't think ANYONE would pick up on that!

  7. Kelley!

    You should've told your hubby the best way to make the painting more accurate and sparkly would be to have a real-life reference to work with!

    (hint hint)


  8. This is a super cool painting. Wonderful.
    Don't you hate that, when you go to change ONE thing about a painting, which requires another change, which requires infinitum.
