Gothic Big Eye Day of the Dead / Dia de los Muertos Original Art Painting! Art Prints & ACEO Prints! April Sketches...



This Week "La Sonrisa" Original 8"x10" Painting here
8"x10" Open Edition print here
ACEO 2.5"x3.5" Limited Edition LE 1st of 25 here

I am listing "La Sonrisa," an original gothic Day of the Dead / Dia de los Muertos inspired painting. This cavalera sugar skull DOTD / DDLM Latina maiden has an enigmatic smile, hence the title "La Sonrisa," which means translates from Spanish to English to "The Smile." This has a surreal lowbrow fantasy feel...

I also have additional giclee art and ACEO prints here this week from Tuesday to Tuesday with some Day of the Dead inspired art as well as a couple of less tied in pieces to round out the group...


Most of my art is also available on my website at www.lisarusso.com; however, I like to put some art on ebay at a lower promotional start rate for the duration of the auctions... I have been updating my website. It's an ongoing project, but there is now an excellent selection of art available!

I am linking this post with Inspire Me Monday


Here is a sketch of an Asian metal dragon teapot.  It sits atop my desk.  I bought it from an antique shop that was going out of business; I have no idea if it has any value or not, but it's one of my favorite things.  I haven't really done it justice in this sketch, it is a sweet object.  I very rarely do still life art.  I doubt I'll paint, but I did enjoy sketching it.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in April.  This is day 12.   

This is a rough sketch.
