Happy National Teacher's Day! I have been graced with some very wonderful teachers, I am very grateful to them.
"Enchanted Light" Original 18"x24" Painting on Canvas Here
This week my featured painting is "Enchanted Light," it is on a large canvas and has a realist impressionist feel. This gorgeous flower was growing on a tree outside of Alex's old apartment and I was compelled to photograph and then paint this beauty. The original magnolia painting is available for purchase on my website as are art prints and LE ACEO prints!
Most of my art is also available on my website at lisarusso.com; however, on the first Tuesday of the month, I like to put some art prints and LE ACEO prints on ebay at a lower promotional rate for the duration of the auctions... This month, my theme is mermaids and includes a selection of some of my big eye fantasy sirens; you may see them here.

The Corey Helford Gallery has three sections, there is the main gallery and then two additional galleries. I went to see The Art Collector Starter Kit IV Group Exhibition, which I hope to share some of the art from on a different day, as a couple of my favorite artists had work in the show and I was very pleasantly surprised to be introduced to Richard J. Oliver's work. The pieces were large and lovely. I think they're realist surrealist in feel. These are some of my favorites from the show. The exhibit is CLOSED, but the gallery may have some of his works available.

Whilst I have continued to sketch daily, I spent my time getting this ready and haven't had a chance to prep my sketches yet. I'll try to get caught up on posting my daily sketches tomorrow.
