This week my featured painting is "Orchid Intrigue," an original big eye black garden guardian painting. I painted it for Diversity and Inclusion: The Influence of African-American Art in Southern California at the Ontario Museum of Art Exhibit. She has a blue hued orchid upon her head. In some traditional African American gardens, blue bottles are hung as blue is considered a protective color. She shares the depth of her emotions through her big luminous eyes. This original painting is available as are art prints and LE ACEO prints, however I have yet to remove her from her frame add the options to my website. I will share her again when I've done so. The art has a painterly lowbrow avant garde surreal feel.
Juneteenth is a holiday I only became aware of this year. It is a celebration of the end of slavery in Texas. In my art, I strive to celebrate what is beautiful. Freedom is so beautiful, I hope your day is amazing...
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 sunflowers, but there are more than solely flowers to see. If you would like to take a look; you may see them here.
