Original Calla Lily Painting! 1st Tuesday Art! November Sketches, Happy Day of the Dead / Feliz Dia de los Muertos...

****I'm going out of town for a while, I'm not sure how long.  I'll try to keep up with my daily sketching, but I'm not sure if or when I'll be able to post.  Alex will be holding down the fort while I'm gone and I'll try to check in when possible, but there may be some delays due to my trip.****


"Flowing Grace" Original 12"x24" Painting on Canvas Here

This week my featured painting is "Flowing Grace".  I thought for this piece, it would be fun to use a long, narrow canvas.  Calla lilies are one of my favorite flowers, they have a beautiful flow to them. The original calla lily floral painting is available for purchase on my website as are art prints and LE ACEO prints!  The prints are cropped to standard sizes.  


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; you may see them here.

Happy Day of the Dead / Feliz Dia de los Muertos!

Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She is adorned with Day of the Dead / Dia de los Muertos makeup.  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a goddess or a mermaid.  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 November.  This is day 1.  I will be going out of town, I'm not sure for how long; so some of my sketches will likely be posted retroactively, but I'll try to keep up with the consecutive sketching.

This is a rough sketch.
