Framed Paintings for the "Day of the Dead Meets Halloween" art show at the Neutra Institute Gallery & Museum + October 21 Sketch...



Here are my paintings framed and ready for the "Day of the Dead Meets Halloween" art show at the Neutra Institute Gallery & Museum.  Three of Dia de los Muertos paintings are on panel.  The small marigold flowers are on canvas as is my Halloween fairy.  They are all acrylic paintings.  On my website I don't usually offer my works framed, but for the show they are available as shown.

The opening is tomorrow Saturday the 22nd from 6 to 9.  The show runs through November 13th but is by appointment only, contact me if you'd like to go and I'll try to set it up for you.  Alex at The Darker Side of Passion is also showing a piece, I'm not sure what time we'll be there, he has a Go Tournament this weekend, but I'll try to hop online on Saturday and post a quick update saying when we're on our way there.

I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:



Here is a sketch of a monarch butterfly.  I felt it went with my paintings for today...  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 October.  This is day 21.   

This is a rough sketch.  You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.

Love the pieces you have framed ♥♥♥ Good luck with the show :) I also love the Monarch ! They are one of my passions and I have raised many from egg to butterfly and designed my gardens to attract and nourish them.

I am so late in posting comments. Of course you know I saw this on FB and just love this display. In my mind all of your peaces will sell out. Your art touches the hearts of others.
