Sketchbook West Las Laguna Gallery Show Featured Painting + Sketch of Camellia Flower, March 31 Art Sketches Daily...
My Wednesday Addams inspired painting "Full of Woe" was selected to be featured at the Sketchbook West Las Laguna Gallery Show. Here she is all framed and ready to go!
She has a corresponding sketch in my tiny sketchbook that measures 3.5x5.5 inches. I've shared some of the sketches that are within here, but some will be available for viewing for the first time at the show. The sketchbook will be displayed at the Sketchbook West Exhibition along with the sketchbooks of additional artists. There will be a mix of fantasy, floral, animal, and assorted sketches within my sketchbook. The gallery will have white gloves available for looking through the sketchbooks. I'm hoping to be at the opening, but I will also update at what time I will be there when I have a better idea of when that will be. I very much enjoy looking at artist's sketches, so I am looking forward to seeing the show!

I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday. To see more participants, please visit:
Here is a sketch of a camellia. I love the long blooming season of these flowers, I am often blessed by their beauty when I visit Descanso Gardens. 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 March. This is day 31.
This is a rough sketch. You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.
