"Fortune Smiles" Original 5"x7" Painting on Panel here
This week my featured painting is "Fortune Smiles," an original piglet painting. I painted it in honor of Chinese New Year... Year of the pig is winding to an end and I realized I had yet to add my happy piglet to my website! This original boar painting is available as are art prints and LE ACEO prints! The art has a painterly realist impressionist feel...
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 will be Chinese Zodiac animals, however I am still working on my rat painting, so I have delayed my usual launch until after the completion of the painting. There are still some of my favorites listed, mermaids, and winter and Christmas themed art if you would like to take a look; you may see them here.
Celebrating the New Lunar Year of the Earth Pig/Boar Exhibition (Closed Show)
The Realm/Ministry of Culture Art Salon Chinatown
February 2nd through March 17th 2019
Upon reflection, I also realized that I had yet to share my pictures from the show "Celebrating the New Lunar Year of the Earth Pig/Boar" I participated in! Since year of the pig is fast changing to year of the rat, I decided to remedy that situation! I think last year I managed an earlier start to my Chinese Zodiac inspired painting than I have to my rat. Although I greatly enjoyed the exhibit and the art at The Realm/Ministry of Culture Art Salon Chinatown's exhibition, I think I'm a bit too far behind to see if they're having a show this year, but I hope that you will enjoy these boars from some of the artists who participated last year as well as my happy little piglet.
