Original Pink Peach Flapjack Umbrella Octopus Painting! Art Prints & ACEO Prints! January Sketches...



"Adorablis" Original 4"x4" Painting on Panel Here

This week my featured painting is "Adorablis."  This little flapjack octopus has pink, peach, and orange hues. I am so smitten with my little cephalopod umbrella octopus friend that he's also featured in another painting that I plan to share next week, but if you can't wait to see him with his mermaid friend, I've linked them in the link above...  They are some of my smallest paintings.  The art has a lowbrow fantasy surrealism feel to the style.  The original octopus 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 angels, you may see them here.

Edit 1/11: I've ran out of time to do a separate post for PPF today, so I am sharing this completed painting.
Happy Paint Party Friday!  To see more participants, please visit:

January 5-9 Sketches

I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in January. They will be primarily rough sketches. You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has quality of curiousity...  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 January.  This is from day 5.  

This is a rough sketch.


 Here is a sketch of marigolds.  They are based on one of the simpler variations of this flower...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this sketch or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.

Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has an expression of compassion.  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.
