My Iris Painting Framed for El Festival de las Flores at the Neutra Institute Gallery & Museum Show! Art Sketch of a Big Eye Fairy Angel, April 19 Daily Sketches...



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!

Opening reception
Saturday, April 22 at 6 PM - 10 PM
Dulce Stein Presents at The Neutra
2379 Glendale Blvd 
Los Angeles, CA  90039
(323) 247-7113 

The closing reception will be Sunday May 7th from 6-9 PM. 
Additional viewing days are by appointment, please contact me if you're interested in setting up a visit and I'll put you in touch with the curator.  There will also be some special events during the run of the show, I'll update you as I know more...

The opening reception event information is here.

=================================================


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.
