This is my framed iris painting that was accepted to El Festival de las Flores at the Neutra Institute Gallery & Museum! It is an 8"x10" oil painting on panel titled "Variegated Bliss." I forgot to measure the frame before I dropped it off yesterday, but I'll try to get the measurements when I go to the opening on Saturday. I'm not sure exactly when I'll be there, probably towards the end though. I'll also try to take some photographs while I'm there so that if you can't make it to the show, you'll still get to see some of the art. I love to paint and view flower paintings!

Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden. She has a mischevous expression... 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 19.
This is a rough sketch. You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.
