Original Closed Big Eye Gothic Mermaid Painting! Art Prints & ACEO Prints! Plus a MerMay Rough Sketch...



"Song of the Siren" Original 7"x5" Painting on Canvas Panel Here


This week my featured painting is "Song of the Siren," an original painting of a big eye gothic mermaid with closed eyes. It's unusual for me to paint big eyed maidens with their eyes closed, but it just felt right for this piece as she prepared to sing her song. The piece has a surreal lowbrow fantasy feel. I love mermaids so...  The original painting is available for purchase on my website as are art prints and LE ACEO prints!


Most of my art is also available on my website at lisabellarusso.com; however, on the first Tuesday of the month, I like to put some art prints and LE ACEO prints on ebay at a lower promotional rate for the duration of the auctions...  This month, my theme for the 10 day auctions is mermaids for MerMay, you may see them here.

Rough Sketches of 2019


Here is the rough sketch for the face of a mermaid I am working on.  She will have a beautiful seashell crown and be painted on an oval canvas.  I also plan to do a drawing of her.  I've started her in honor of MerMay, but while I will be working on her this month, I probably won't get her completed this month.  Mermaids are a favorite theme of mine though and there are many to see at my website if you'd like...


I love to sketch and draw. I've been sketching daily for years and it's one of my favorite ways to make sure art is in my life daily. Some of them are destined to become paintings or drawings, some remain sketches. Here is one of my daily rough sketches...

May the Fourth be With You! Big Eye Rough sketch of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia



Although I've continued to sketch daily, it has been a while since I've shared any of my rough sketches.  This one is inspired by Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia.  I've long loved her big soulful eyes.

I hope you have a wonderful Star Wars Day!  May the Fourth (4th) be with You...

Original Sakura Cherry Blossoms Painting + Art Prints & ACEO Prints!



"Sakura San" Original 8"x10" Painting on Panel Here


I'm working on a bunny girl painting that I'd like to share some rough sketches for soon.  I haven't quite decided what direction I'm going with for her hair.  She also has a couple of earses options.  I don't think I'll have her done in time for Easter, but it's possible...

This week my featured painting is "Sakura San."  These cherry blossoms are pink and white.  These flowers have such a delicate beauty, seeing them brings me joy as does painting them...  It is the third in this series.  The art has a soft realist impressionist feel.  The original floral painting is available for purchase on my website as are art prints and LE ACEO prints!


Most of my art is also available on my website at lisarusso.com; however, on the first Tuesday of the month, I like to put some art prints and LE ACEO prints on ebay at a lower promotional rate for the duration of the auctions...  This month, my theme is spring cherry blossom and bunnies; you may see them here.

Original Big Eye Latina Angel Fairy Painting + Art Prints & ACEO Prints!



"Dulzura" Original 8"x10" Painting here

I apologize for my long absence.  This month is Women's Month and I decided to take some time to contemplate matters.  I've decided to change my art name from Lisa Isabella Russo to Lisabella Russo.  It's shorter and I think it will be simpler for doing shows.  I've also decided to make my assorted art section on my website purely animal art as that is mainly what's there.  Some of my assorted art will make its way to Art Studies, some will be removed.  Art Studies is my new title for what was Master Art Studies, and will include some of my toned drawings at some point.  I will also be going through all of my sections and removing some of the art.  For now, everything except the titles are as it was, so if you have your eye on something, I suggest taking action or writing down the title of the art as I may be able to accomodate you if you know what you're looking for...

This week my featured painting is "Dulzura".  This Latina angel fairy has large brown eyes and her name means sweetness in Spanish.  I think it embodies her essence.  The art has a lowbrow surreal feel.  The original big eye angel fairy painting is available for purchase on my website as are art prints and LE ACEO prints!  


Most of my art is also available on my website at lisarusso.com; however, on the first Tuesday of the month, I like to put some art prints and LE ACEO prints on ebay at a lower promotional rate for the duration of the auctions...  This month my theme is angels and includes a selection of some of my big eyed fantasy winged fae; you may see them here.
