The Sketchbook West Exhibition at Las Laguna Gallery opens today! I intend to be there towards the end of the opening. My Wednesday Addams inspired painting "Full of Woe" was selected to be featured at the Sketchbook West Las Laguna Gallery Show. This is the corresponding sketch in my tiny sketchbook that measures 3.5x5.5 inches. The sketchbook will be displayed at the Sketchbook West Exhibition along with the sketchbooks of additional artists. There will be a mix of fantasy, floral, animal, and assorted sketches within my sketchbook. I very much enjoy looking at artist's sketches, so I am looking forward to seeing the show!

Here is a sketch of a stargazer lily flower. These flowers have such a gentle elegance. I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it...
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in April. This is day 6.
This is a rough sketch. You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.
