"Moonrise" Original 16"x20" Painting on Canvas here
This week my featured painting is "Moonrise," an original big eye black ghost painting. I painted it for Diversity and Inclusion: The Influence of African-American Art in Southern California at the Ontario Museum of Art Exhibit. She was inspired by a folktale. I loved painting her fluffy hair. This original painting is available as are art prints and LE ACEO prints! The art has a painterly lowbrow surreal feel...
When I started painting people, I made them mostly blue or purple. Alex Ledante, an artist I respect very much, encouraged me to try natural skin tones. There is so much beauty in the range of our skins. I think all skin tones are lovely and no one should be treated differently based on what theirs is.
Most of my art is also available on my website at lisabellarusso.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 sunflowers, but there are more than solely flowers to see. If you would like to take a look; you may see them here.
