Me (artist Lisa Isabella Russo) with my iris painting in the golden frame "Variegated Bliss" and a lovely piece below mine by Reidar Schoopp.
Here are some of my photographs from the opening day of El Festival de las Flores at the Neutra Institute Gallery & Museum Show. There were a lot of wonderful pieces, these are just a sampling...
Edit: It looks like the curator is feeling better, the closing is as scheduled on May 7th from 6-9, we'll likely be there towards the end..
The closing reception was scheduled for Sunday May 7th from 6-9 PM; however the curator had a medical emergency, I'll update you as I know more...

Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden. She is glancing upwards at a monarch butterfly friend... 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 April. This is day 28.
This is a rough sketch. You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.
