Original Stargazer Lilies Painting! Art Prints & ACEO Prints! LACMA Creatures of the Earth, Sea, and Sky: Painting the Panamanian Cosmos Exhibit Part II...

"Vivid" Original 18"x24" Painting on Canvas Here

This week my featured painting is "Vivid."  There is a full bloom lily and a lily bud, together I thought the flowers were very sweet...  The floral art has a realist impressionist feel.  The original stargazer lilies 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 angels, you may see them here.

I am linking this post with Inspire Me Monday


Creatures of the Earth, Sea, and Sky: Painting the Panamanian Cosmos Part II
LACMA Exhibit Open until April 15, 2018

With a theme of real and mythical animals, the show includes a mix of ancient ceramics and 20th century textiles.  Some of the ceramics were part of chief's burials and restored from purposely broken pieces, they are glazed in styles unique to Panamanian art with some purple hues.  The textile panels are called molas and come from the modern Kuna culture.  They were traditionaly made in pairs as part of a front and back panel of a woman's blouse and thought to have protective qualities.

I found these works very appealing.  Part I is here.
