Original Big Eye Gothic Snow White Fairytale Painting + Art Prints & ACEO Prints! Jasmine Becket-Griffith Exhibit at the Corey Helford Gallery II...

"Sneewittchen" Original 8"x10" Painting on Canvas Here

This week my featured painting is "Sneewittchen."  She is inspired by the Grimms' fairy tale Snow White.  "Sneewittchen" translates to Snow White from German as written back when it was published.  Her dark hair is adorned with water lilies, her skin is ever so pale, and her lips a brilliant red.  The art has a lowbrow surreal feel.  The original big eye gothic fairytale 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 maidens with big blue eyes, you may see them here.

Jasmine Becket-Griffith Magical Thinking Exhibit Part II

Magical Thinking Part II (CLOSED Show)
Corey Helford Gallery
Most of the pieces are sold, but please send inquiries for available work to sherri@coreyhelfordgallery.com.

Magical Thinking is Jasmine Becket-Griffith's solo show at the Corey Helford Gallery.  She is one of my favorite artists.  Her surrealist big eyed beauties are a source of inspiration to me.  I feel very fortunate when I get to see some of her works in person.  She did a number of small studies, some of which correspond to larger pieces, that I found very compelling.   These are some of the pieces that had floral components.  Her flowers are every bit as beautiful as her big eye maidens.

This is Part II of IV of the photos that I'm sharing from this show.  I'll link them together here as I go.  Part I is here.

Here are some links for Jasmine Becket-Griffith

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 the next time that I post.

Love your beautiful Snow White version- especially with the water lilies in her hair! Thanks for sharing that beautiful gallery exhibit too although there's nothing like seeing it in person. Happy PPF!

Nicolas Hall said...

Lisa your Sneewittchen is wonderful! Love the vibrancy of the colors and her face is gorgeous.

Beckett-Griffith's work is extraordinary! I absolutely adore it. How fortunate to be able to see it up close. I can only imagine it is more remarkable in person. I feel inspired by her way of incorporating the frames and the images together. They match really well.

Keep up the inspiring work yourself Lisa! :)
