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.
