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 on Thursday.

"Iris Dream" Original 16"x20" Painting on Canvas Here

This week my featured painting is "Iris Dream."  She and "Orchid Intrigue" are part of the same series.  The original big eye gothic angel fairy garden guardian painting is available for purchase on my website as are art prints and LE ACEO prints!  "Orchid Intrigue" and "Moonrise" will join her on my website at some point after I get them back from the museum.


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 hearts; you may see them here.
