"Sylph of Violet" Original 8"x10" Painting on Canvas Here
This week my featured painting is "Sylph of Violet". Composed almost entirely of shades of blue and purple, this original big eye gothic fairy angel painting also has a bit of sass. The art has a lowbrow surreal feel. She 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 lisarusso.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 mermaids and includes a selection of some of my big eye fantasy sirens; you may see them here.

Here is a sketch of an octopus. They are such fascinating animals and truly masters of disguise. I'd like to someday paint one with a mermaid, but I think I'd best start with some sketches and then possibly some studies... I'm unsure if I'll paint him or not, but I did enjoy sketching him.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in May. This is day 16.
This is a rough sketch.
