The December Miniatures and Small Works Exhibit at the Whittier Art Gallery + DEC Sketches, Sketch 17, Fairy Angel...

Lisa Isabella Russo with "Lisianthus Beauties" Painting

Here is my original lisianthus painting, framed and in the December Miniatures and Small Works Exhibit at the Whittier Art Gallery.  Framed "Lisianthus Beauties" measures 5 1/4" x 4 3/4", unframed this tiny acrylic painting on vellum paper measures 4"x3.5".  There was a lot of wonderful art and artists at the exhibit and it's still open until December 24th!  I picked a handful of my favorites to share with you.

Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a look of sweet determination...  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 December.  This is day 17.  

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

Wonderful art. And your beautiful flower painting is part of it - congrats! I wish I could visit as I will be in California for Christmas, but in SFO :). Happy Holidays, Lisa.
