Lilac Purple Rosebud Rose Art Completed Painting + February Sketches, Sketch 24 & 25, Mermaid & Angel Fairy...



"Lilac Rosebud" Original Painting Sold, Giclee Prints & LE ACEO Prints Here

I recently completed this lilac rosebud painting, the original was painted in oils on wood.  It sold almost immediately after I completed it, I didn't get a chance to add it to my website until now.  I love roses, they are such beautiful flowers.  The art has an impressionist realist feel.  I'm running a bit behind today, so I'd like to add this one as a 5"x7" giclee print and LE ACEO print into the mix of my first Tuesday auctions that start on March 7th as a new release bonus but they will also be at the link above on my website.


This is a completed work, I also usually post at least one finished piece on Tuesdays if you'd like to come to visit!  You also may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.

Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  Her hair is flowing around her and she smiles gently.  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be an angel fairy or a goddess.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.  


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in February.  This is day 24.  

This is a rough sketch.  I am also participating in the February 29 Faces Challenge, this is face 24.

This is a rough sketch.  I am also participating in the February 29 Faces Challenge, this is face 25.  I'm not really a colored pencil artist but I am exploring something new for the sketchbook.  I will be juxtaposing my usual rough sketches with the colored pencil sketches at varying intervals.  I tend to sketch very lightly, so these and my usual pencil ones are darkened a bit in photoshop for online viewing.

Light Yellow and Red Orchid Flowers Painting! 1st Tuesday Art Prints & ACEO Prints! February Sketches...



"Heart's Wish" Original 18"x24" Painting on Canvas Here

This week my featured painting is "Heart's Wish".  The orchids are a soft yellow with accents of reds.  Flowers have such a delicate beauty.  The art has a 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 hearts; some of my hearts are abstract, some are connected to fairy angels, you may see them here.

I am linking this post with Inspire Me Monday

WIP Big Eye Latina Angel Fairy Art Original Painting Work in Progress + February Sketches, Sketch 20, Goddess...



Edit 2/21: Sorry, I had the wrong description here, from a while back, the rooster has already been posted, but I believe I will share a floral piece today...

In this original work in progress WIP big eye maiden painting I've been working on her hair.  At this point it's just blocked in, it will be darker in color when I'm finished with it...  This Latina angel fairy has a sweetness to her, I am thinking of "Dulzura" as the title of the painting.  It is sweetness in Spanish.

This big eyed beauty is on an 8"x10" canvas in acrylics.  


This is a work in progress, but I also usually post at least one finished piece on Tuesdays if you'd like to come to visit!  You also may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.

WIP Mermaid & AngelFish Art Original Painting Work in Progress + February Sketches, Sketch 17, Fairy Angel...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye mermaid with her angelfish friends, I've almost finished her hair.  She may get an additional wispy when the fish are complete.  I've started on the fishies, they are fun little sea animals.  Right now I've started blocking them in, then they'll get a bit of shading.  After which will come the fins, ah fins, glorious fins...

This big eyed beauty is on a 16"x20" canvas in acrylics.


This is a work in progress, but I also usually post at least one finished piece on Tuesdays if you'd like to come to visit!  You also may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.

My Photograph of a Tulip Flower at Descanso Gardens + February Sketches Art, Day 15 Sketch, Goddess, 29 Faces...



The tulips are coming, the tulips are coming!  I took this photograph of this tulip during a past year at Descanso Gardens.  They are not yet in bloom there, but they are coming.  Every year they have a slightly different mix of what tulips they plant, some are the same and some are different, but it's a joy to see them.  This is one of my favorite tulips that they've had...  I hope that you will enjoy this photo!
