Original Sakura Cherry Blossoms Painting + Art Prints & ACEO Prints! March Sketches...


****Edit 3/20/18 It looks like I'll be out of town for one more week.  Alex will be holding down the fort while I'm gone and I'll try to check in when possible, but there may be some delays due to my trip.  Ah the sketches to scan in upon my return are stacking up...  I hope you are having a beautiful first day of spring!****



"Sakura Ni" Original 5"x7" Painting on Panel Here

This week my featured painting is "Sakura Ni".  These cherry blossoms are pink and white.  These flowers have such a delicate beauty, seeing them brings me joy as does painting them...  It is the second in this series.  The art has a soft realist impressionist feel.  The original floral 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 maidens with flowers; you may see them here.

I am linking this post with Inspire Me Monday

March 9-13 Sketches


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She seems to be a little wary...  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 March. This is from day 9. 

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a dahlia flower and bud.  They have a simple beauty...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this sketch or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in March.  This is from day 10.

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a gentle sweetness...  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, 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 March. This is from day 11. 

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a black eyed susan flower.  I think it has a lovely charm...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this or not, but I did enjoy sketching it. 


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in March.  This is from day 12.  

This is a rough sketch.  


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a shy quality, gently peeking out at the world...  I think she is most likely a goddess, although she could also be a fairy angel or a goddess.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.

Olá, que a viagem seja conforme o seu desejo, sua arte é simplesmente fantastica, julgo que a promove, se faz, faz muito bem, mas não se limite entre fronteiras.
Feliz semana,
AG
