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...

http://lisarusso.com/fantasyart/fantasy.htm


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.

Gung Hay Fat Choy! Happy Chinese New Year! Happy Year of the Ox & Lunar New Year! Original Muskox Musk Painting...

 

Gung hay fat choy! Happy Lunar New Year!  It's the Year of the Ox this zodiac year and this fluffy muskox and I at lisabellarusso.com would like to wish you a wonderful year.  




I am not quite done with this painting of a musk ox, it needs a little bit more love, so it isn't available quite yet (I'll do another post when it is).  I like to paint the zodiac animal of the year in honor of Chinese New Year.  I also love painting animals, so these are always a joy to paint.  I haven't come up with a title yet for this cutey, so if you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them.

WIP Work in Progress Baby Yoda Grogu Inspired Original Painting...

 


In this original wip work in progress acrylic painting inspired by baby Yoda Grogu, I have completed the underpainting and I feel the background is finished as well.  I've started to add color to his ears, but I think one needs a more orange feeling and I'm debating on his hues of green for his face.  I meant to get him done for the Mandalorian, but now it's more of a May the Fourth backburner project...  This is where I am with him right now.  



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 Chinese New Year Zodiac animals (with the intention to add my muskox and some additional Zodiac animals on the first Tuesday of February) art plus some more; you may see them here.

Every year, I try to paint the Zodiac animal of the year for Chinese New Year...  February 12th will be the start of year of the ox.  Right now I've started with a rough sketch of a muskox.  It is a work in progress at this point. I love to paint fluffy fur and this musk ox has plenty of that!  I am looking forward to taking this further.


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 a selection of some of my Chinese New inspired animal art (I hope to finish this piece by next month and share some additional Zodiac animals on the 1st Tuesday of February) and others; you may see them here.
