Happy New Year Wishes from a Garden Guardian Angel Fairy! December Sketches...



I hope this coming year brings you much joy and beauty.  This garden guardian angel fairy and I send Happy New Year wishes from lisarusso.com.


This painting is the last one I will have completed this year, she actually looks a bit different now that I've varnished her, I'll share the final version of her another day; but I liked this version of her with this gold leafing look to usher in the new year!   

This big eyed beauty is on a 16"x20" canvas in acrylics.  This piece and "Moonrise" have been accepted by the Ontario Museum of History & Art "Diversity and Inclusion:  The Influence of African American Art in Southern California Exhibit."  I've yet to frame them, but they are both complete!

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


Here is a sketch of a bearded iris.  These flowers are amongst my favorites...  I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it. 


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in December.  This is from day 29.  

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a hibiscus.  I see a lot of these flowers and they are wonderful to behold...  I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it. 


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in December.  This is from day 30.  

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  I love hats and I think she does too...  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess.  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 December. This is day 31.
