Original Closed Big Eye Gothic Mermaid Painting! Art Prints & ACEO Prints! April 7-10 Sketches...



"Song of the Siren" Original 7"x5" Painting on Canvas Panel Here

This week my featured painting is "Song of the Siren," an original painting of a big eye Gothic mermaid with closed eyes. It's unusual for me to paint big eyed maidens with their eyes closed, but it just felt right for this piece as she prepared to sing her song. The piece has a surreal lowbrow fantasy feel. I love mermaids so...  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 7-10 Sketches


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She wears a crown upon her head and her hair cascades around her...  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.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in April. This is from day 7. 

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of some crown of thorn flowers.  I'm not sure if I quite captured them in this sketch, I may try them again at some point...  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 8.  

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  Her hair flows wildly about her...  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.

Here is a sketch of some Easter lilies.  Lily flowers seem to have much grace to me...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.
