For the month of August I will be offering a free random rough sketch included with any original art order on my website lisarusso.com! I plan on starting to make some adjustments in pricing and content on my website in September, so now is an excellent time to take a look...
"Violet Windflower" Original 8"x10" Painting on Canvas Here
This week my featured painting is "Violet Windflower." Anemone flowers translate to windflower in Greek and in the myths were thought to have sprung from Athena's tears from the loss of Adonis. The art has a soft realist impressionist feel. The purple anemone 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 includes some of my Chinese Zodiac inspired animals, you may see them here.

In Persuit of Flora Part I
Huntington Gardens (Closed Show)
Eighteenth-Century Botanical Drawings from The Huntington's Art Collections
Huntington Art Gallery – Works on Paper Room
The natural world is filled with many wonders and beauty. In the 18th century, botanical illustrations were a way to describe and record very detailed depictions of fruits and flowers. This show exhibited botanical drawings from Huntington Garden's Art Collections. In addition to being delicate and lovely works of art, these pieces conveyed information about the plants that were painted. These botanical illustrations from the "Age of Discovery" were a wonder to behold. I hope that you will enjoy them.
This is part I of II. I will link to part II here. This is a closed show.
