Original Big Eye Gothic Mermaid Painting! Art Prints & ACEO Prints! April 21-24 Sketches...



"Midnight Kiss" Original 5"x7" Painting on Panel Here

This week my featured painting is "Midnight Kiss," an original painting of a big eye gothic mermaid with a fancy betta fish inspired tail. She has huge violet eyes and lips of blue. The piece has a surreal lowbrow fantasy feel. Mermaids are a favorite subject of mine...  The original 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 white flowers, you may see them here.

I am linking this post with Inspire Me Monday

April 21-24 Sketches


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a look of gentle concern...  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 April. This is from day 21. 

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a peony flower.  Peonies have so many luscious petals...  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 April.  This is from day 22.  

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a compassionate expression...  I think she is most likely a goddess, although she could also be a fairy angel or a mermaid.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.

Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has pearls interlaced through her hair...  I think she is most likely a mermaid, 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.
