Snowy Night! Original Fantasy Unicorn Painting...

 

"Snowy Night" Original 7"x5" #Painting Sold, Open Edition 7"x5" Giclee Prints & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO LE Prints Here

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!

Big Brown Eye Eyed Mermaid! Original Fantasy Painting on Porthole Frame...

 

"Looking In" Original 11"x11" #Painting, Open Edition 8"x10" Giclee Prints & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO Prints Here

In honor of the end of #mermay I am sharing another mermaid painting.  Although to be fair almost every month is mermay for me, I'm usually working on one mermaid painting or another.  These sirens of the deep fascinate me.  This sweet mermaid had big brown eyes and a starfish in her hair and is painted directly into a porthole frame.  The original painting is available, as are art prints and LE ACEO prints.

 Happy National World Turtle Day!

"The Gift" Original 5"x7" #Painting NFS, Open Edition 5"x7" Giclee Prints & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO Prints Here

It was quite some time ago, but I still remember it vividly.  I was visiting a marine aquarium and this large sea turtle came right up to the glass.  I took a photo or two, but mainly I was in awe.  That turtle is part of this fantasy mermaid painting.

"Soft Light" Original 16"x20" Acrylic Painting NFS, Open Edition 8"x10" Giclee Prints & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO Prints Here

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.

Happy Black History Month! Big Eye Original Garden Guardian Fairy Painting...

 

This big eyed garden guardian and I at lisabellarusso.com would like to wish you a Happy Black History Month.  



Original 16"x20" Garden Guardian Painting, Open Edition 8"x10" Giclee Prints & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO Prints Coming Soon to...

It's the very tail end of Black History Month, but I'd still like to share this lovely maiden with you.  I painted her for the Diversity and Inclusion: The Influence of African-American Art in Southern California at the Ontario Museum of Art Exhibit.  When I did a little research, I found that it was traditional in Black History to put blue bottles in the garden to protect it.  I decided I wanted to paint one of my garden guardians for the show with a blue orchid as a connection to the protection of the blue bottles.

I haven't added her to my website yet, but when I do I will share the link.
