Happy 4th of July! Big Eye Eyed Blue Purple Dragon Original Painting...


Happy Independence Day Wishes from this big eye dragon and from me at lisabellarusso.com!


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

I'm not really sure what dragons and the 4th of July have to do with each other, but this dragon wanted to celebrate with you and I didn't want to say no...  He or she (I'm respecting the dragon's privacy) does breath fire and some people like fireworks on the fourth, so maybe there's the connection.  This dragon is perched atop a rock, guarding treasure nearby.  I hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday and are good to the dragons in your life too!

On the 1st Tuesday of the month I listed some prints at a sale rate!  The theme this month is dragons and unicorns...  This dragon as well as additional pieces are available as open edition giclee art and LE ACEO prints here.

Farewell to Junicorn! Abstract Expressionist Sunset Sunrise Fantasy Unicorn Art...


This unicorn and I bid you adieu to Junicorn from lisabellarusso.com!


"Freeborn" The original painting is not available, but Open Edition 8"x10" Giclee Prints & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO Prints are available Here

I love unicorns!  This is an older piece with an abstract expressionist feel.  There is also a companion piece with a similar feel on my website.  I have a couple of ideas for new unicorn paintings, but at this point they are only ideas.  I hope to do some work on them but I have other projects at the front of the queue.  They're definitely in my project wishlist though!  I hope the closing of Junicorn treats you well...

I didn't get a chance to feature my unicorns on my first Tuesday of the month ebay listings, but I will try to do so in July with some of my dragons thrown in for good measure as well!

WIP Work in Progress Big Eye Little Red Riding Hood Original 8"x10" Acrylic Painting Fairytale...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye little red riding hood I've completed the background am working on the underpainting.  Fairytales hold a strong allure for me.  In this piece, I'm focused on her face.  I think I'm going to make her bangs a little bit longer and do the underpainting of the ribbon and then decide if I need to go any further with the overall underpainting before I proceed to layering colors.  

This big eyed beauty is on an 8"x10" panel in acrylics...  


This is a work in progress, but you also may see some of my finished paintings at lisabellarusso.com if you'd like.

This piece is currently living in my Animal Art section (previously Assorted), I haven't yet transported it to studies...  My dad loves the ocean, so that is why I have chosen this painting for this day. 


I'm sorry I haven't been around much, I'm a bit behind with everything this year.  I'll try to do better though.  I'll also try to get caught up on visiting tomorrow...

Original Closed Big Eye Gothic Mermaid Painting! Art Prints & ACEO Prints! Plus a MerMay Rough Sketch...



"Song of the Siren" Original 7"x5" Painting on Canvas Panel Here


This week my featured painting is "Song of the Siren," an original painting of a big eye gothic mermaid with closed eyes. It's unusual for me to paint big eyed maidens with their eyes closed, but it just felt right for this piece as she prepared to sing her song. The piece has a surreal lowbrow fantasy feel. I love mermaids so...  The original painting is available for purchase on my website as are art prints and LE ACEO prints!


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 for the 10 day auctions is mermaids for MerMay, you may see them here.

Featured Image "Song of the Siren"
7"x5" Open Edition print on Sale here
ACEO 3.5"x2.5" Limited Edition LE 1st of 25 on Sale here

Rough Sketches of 2019


Here is the rough sketch for the face of a mermaid I am working on.  She will have a beautiful seashell crown and be painted on an oval canvas.  I also plan to do a drawing of her.  I've started her in honor of MerMay, but while I will be working on her this month, I probably won't get her completed this month.  Mermaids are a favorite theme of mine though and there are many to see at my website if you'd like...


I love to sketch and draw. I've been sketching daily for years and it's one of my favorite ways to make sure art is in my life daily. Some of them are destined to become paintings or drawings, some remain sketches. Here is one of my daily rough sketches...

May the Fourth be With You! Big Eye Rough sketch of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia



Although I've continued to sketch daily, it has been a while since I've shared any of my rough sketches.  This one is inspired by Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia.  I've long loved her big soulful eyes.

I hope you have a wonderful Star Wars Day!  May the Fourth (4th) be with You...
