I'm going out of town tomorrow 8/23, I could be gone for around a week, but I'm hoping that my trip will only last a few days. I'll try to keep sketching for my daily sketch challenge and I hope to post the sketches that I complete upon my return.
"Aphrodite" Original 5"x7" Painting on Canvas Panel Here
This week my featured painting is "Aphrodite." She has big blue green teal eyes and blonde hair with purple streaks. Aphrodite (also known to the Romans as Venus) is the Greek goddess of love and is part of my goddess series. I think love is so very important. The original big eye surreal lowbrow fantasy goddess 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 flowers and includes a selection of some of my white flower art; you may see them here.
I am linking this post with Inspire Me Monday
Here is a sketch of an oriental poppy. I think they are such beautiful flowers, I saw them first in Georgia O'Keefe's gorgeous paintings and they have been dear to me ever since... I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in August. This is day 22.
This is a rough sketch.
