Dulzura and I would like to wish you a happy LatinX Hispanic National Heritage Month!
Ahoy scallywags, in honor o' International Talk Like a Pirate Day, I 'ave been workin' on this toned drawin' o' a pirate lass. It took me some time t' return t' this drawin' o' this lovely pirate lass, but now I reckon I 'ave her set t' rights. Initially I'd planned a series o' pirate paintings, but I be nah sure if I be takin' this any further...
I hope ye 'ave an excellent Talk Like a Pirate Day!
Happy Summer's Solstice Day wishes from me at lisabellarusso.com!
Technically summer solstice shared with Father's Day this year, so I decided to share this today. When I think of summer, I think of long days, heat, and beautiful sunflowers! Of the three, I think I love sunflowers the most. They are filled with hope.
Sunlight Sunbright was inspired by some flowers growing in my mother's students gardens. They were large and lovely. I very much enjoyed painting this vibrant flower. The art has a painterly realist impressionist feel.
Happy Father's Day wishes from me at lisabellarusso.com!
My dad loves the ocean, so that is why I have chosen this painting for this day... I am very lucky to have a father who has always done his best. He helped instill in me a great love of nature. Happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there!
Reminders was inspired by a photograph of a sailboat on the sea I took in San Pedro. I debated on including some of the elements in the background, but decided to keep them in. I very much enjoyed painting the ocean. The art has a painterly realist impressionist feel.
Happy Juneteenth from this big eye garden guardian and from me at lisabellarusso.com!
I love June, there are unicorns everywhere! It follows that I also love unicorns... Their magical charms just draw me in. I've painted a few unicorns, a couple of abstract fiery ones and this snow cooled big eyed white unicorn. I definitely have more that I want to paint, they hold such a strong allure for me.
This month in addition to #Junicorn, Alex Ledante is also insisting it's #KaiJune, check out some of his outstanding art here for a totally different perspective!
Happy National World Turtle Day!
In honor of #mermay and #throwbackthursday I am sharing what I think is my oldest mermaid painting that I have up on my website. She is titled "Soft Light" and is caressed by defused light drifting through to where she basks. In addition to her tail, she also has wings, giving her dominion over the sea and air. I'm not sure where the original painting is hiding, but prints and LE ACEO prints are available.
