Feliz Día de los Muertos / Happy Day of the Dead! Big Eye Eyed Sugar Skull Calavera Original Painting...


Feliz Día de los Muertos / Day of the Dead from this big eye sugar skull calavera and from me at lisabellarusso.com


"La Sonrisa" Original 8"x10" Painting, Open Edition 8"x10" Giclee Prints & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO Prints Here

This is "La Sonrisa," an original big eye fantasy painting of a sugar skull inspired calavera.  There is some texture in the background. DDLD / DOTD is a celebration, initially of Mexican origin, that remembers those who are gone from us that we still hold in our hearts.  She has big brown eyes and long brown hair streaked with purple.  The art has a lowbrow surreal feel...

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 mixed with fall, Día de los Muertos, and Halloween art; you may see them here.

WIP Work in Progress Sugar Skull with Monarch Butterfly for DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS: JOURNEY OF THE BUTTERFLIES Day of the Dead Show at the Ontario Museum of Art

 



In this original wip work in progress acrylic painting of a sugar skull with a monarch butterfly.  I have finished the background and the skull.  I have yet to complete the butterfly, although I have started.  The panel that I'm painting on is 5"x7" and my intention was for it to be a study for the larger piece I did for the show.  However, I didn't quite make it to all of the skull details on the larger piece, I will probably add them in at a later time.  



This is a work in progress, but I also post finished pieces here as well if you'd like to come to visit!  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 Halloween and Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead art plus some more; you may see them here.
