Original Big Eye Black Gothic Mermaid with Clownfish Painting! Art Prints & ACEO Prints! ART COLLECTOR STARTER KIT VI (Closed Show) at the Corey Helford Gallery...
"Three Friends" Original 11"x14" Painting on Canvas Here
This week my featured painting is "Three Friends," an original big eye painting of a black gothic mermaid with her clownfish friends. She has huge brown eyes and the clown fish seem to be very fond of her. 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!
I am working on my Dia de los Muertos pieces, I'm still in the sketch phase though; so many monarch butterflies and tiny skulls...
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 mermaids plus more; you may see them here.

ART COLLECTOR STARTER KIT VI (Closed Show)
Corey Helford Gallery
DECEMBER 14 - JANUARY 18, 2020
The Corey Helford ART COLLECTOR STARTER KIT VI (Closed Show) features art by their artists generally sized at 12"x12" and priced to entice new collectors into taking the plunge. Oh how I wish I could! I went to see HOW DEEP IS THE OCEAN by Jasmine Becket-Griffith and I'd so love to be able purchase her and take her home, but alas no, I could only look at and photograph the art. Which was a privilege in and of itself... Here are some that I very much enjoyed! I will definitely be sharing more from this show as time progresses.
To see more paintings from the show, please visit here.

I so love hedgehogs and this one has something in common with my mermaid; clownfish love him!

It probably seems a bit early for Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead; however, I am participating in the Ontario Museum of Art show and for me the deadline seems looming. I'm a bit slow, so aways we go...
The theme this year is Journey of the Butterflies. This is a rough sketch of one of the paintings that I will be doing. My maiden will have a crown of skulls with monarch butterflies atop the skulls. I will also be doing a smaller piece with just a skull and a butterfly or two. I have not yet decided if she will have the traditional makeup or not or if the tiny skulls atop her head will be adorned or not and this sketch of her needs improvement as well, so, oh so many decisions ahead before I start the paintings themselves... Here is my starting point for this one though.
