Crown in her Soul

'Crown in Her Soul' 
5 x 7 inches

'She's the kind of queen that knows her crown isn't on her head. But in her soul." Adrian Michael

This is one of my favorite paintings I've done in a while. I really loved the glow on her face and hair from the light, and the flash of red in her dress, and the colors of sunlight in her hair. And her smooth skin. . . cool shadows in her cheeks. . . I could go on forever I guess. The point is, I loved painting this one. 

I'm always amazed at how some subjects and scenes just click in my brain and it's like I vacate the premises for a minute and my body just paints it like it's on auto pilot. I guess that's called flow? It's a very cool phenomenon. The trick is figuring out what makes that happen and then do more of that haha! 

I'm super behind on blogging lately. I've been creating so much art, it's been amazing! But haven't taken the time to blog about it, even though I do post regularly on Instagram and facebook (crystalcookart on both). 


  1. I just found your blog by clicking on the next blog button and I’m so glad I did! I really love the feel of this painting. I can sense the personality-that can be very hard to capture in a painting. Water colors are hard because they’re so unforgiving. I wouldn’t attempt that. Oils and acrylics work better for me. It looks like you mastered the skill of planning out your paintings as you really have to do with this medium. Come visit me, please at my blog: laughinghorseart.blogspot.com Please leave a comment so I can know you’ve visited it. Happy painting!

  2. Wow! Crystal!!!! She's absolutely flawless...love her skin tones and beautiful colors... Of course, her pose is perfect...


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment they really do mean so much to me! Because not all bloggers have their email enabled so I can reply directly through email I will try to reply here in the comments. If I don't please forgive me, life must have been hectic that day! :)) Huzzah!!
