Happy Halloween! Original Big Eye Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead Fairy Painting & Show + Art Prints & ACEO Prints! The Ultraviolent Horror Show Exhibit...

Happy Halloween!  I hope you have a wonderful holiday.

"Remembrance (Recuerdo)" Original 11"x14" Painting on Panel Here

This week my featured painting is "Remembrance," a Day of the Dead sugar skull katrina with red roses in her hair. This original big eye gothic angel fairy painting is currently available framed at the Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead San Juan Capistrano Library until November 30th after which the original unframed painting will return to my website at the link above, if interested before her possible return, please contact me regarding availability.  Currently art prints and LE ACEO prints are available on my website.  

This is one of my three paintings included in the Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead San Juan Capistrano Library show curated by Skye Amber Sweet.  Exhibit details are below.

Alex Ledante also has works in the show and we will strive to be at the reception.  Please coordinate with us if you'd like to meet there...

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 is Halloween and Dia de los Muertos, with a bit of Wednesday thrown in; you may see them here however these auctions will end on Thursday, so if you'd like the sale rate, the clock is ticking...

The Ultraviolent Horror Show
ZoeTrope Arts and Events

I've saved sharing this spooky and spectacular show for Halloween!  Alex Ledante participated in "The Ultraviolent Horror Show" hosted by ZoeTrope Arts and Events.  Some of the art is a smidge darker than my usual fare that I typically share here, but still quite beautiful and compelling.

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.
