My Collaboration with music artist Nu-San and Coming Soon Album Release!
Today post is an update for this interesting project and collaboration. Who follow me maybe remember my older post. Recently I had welcomed new followers to my Blog and this post is an update on this on going project and collaboration.
I have collaborated with music artist Nu-San and I was commissioned to create a watercolor painting as the Cover for his Coming Soon New Album “Nu Nostalgia” today we are celebrating the launch and release of the Video of Nu-San Single “Come With Me” a beautiful and moving song included in the album. I like to share it with you while we’re looking forward to the Album release!
Nu-San yesterday released the video of the Single “Come With Me” you can watch it here:
“NU NOSTALGIA” Album Cover – Original Watercolor Painting
This is a wonderful project!
And I am so honored and grateful beyond words that Nu-San wants my Art to illustrate his music. I love music and love to support music artists with my art. I always wanted to create an artwork that would be illustrating a music album as the “Cover” I am so happy that this wish is coming true and would be tangible soon. Nu-San discography includes other beautiful albums but this one is the first that would be made in “Vinyl” and it is a dream coming true for Nu-San. We are happy to share this achievement it is special. Thank you again Sandy for this great collaboration!
This project and watercolor painting is also part of my Collection Series, check my Gallery “ART FOR MUSIC”a series of artworks inspired by music artists reflecting my passion for music.
Nu-Sanis a solo project and electronic music producer and composer from Scotland, UK.
He has composed original chill out and dance tracks and creates unique haunting sounds and techno music, that’s the way I can best describe the sound of his music. I can’t wait to listen what he has created for the new coming album!
This is one of the photos of “Nu-San” that inspired my Portrait for the new album cover, you can see his face in my painting!
My painting is a watercolor and ink portrait in my signature style it has a hint of Gothic and a feeling of darkness. Nu-San asked me to include in the painting ravens birds, a graveyard scene, a castle and gave me the freedom to create. I enjoyed painting this atmospheric portrait not in a classic and common “Gothic Style” but revised in my own style. We are very happy about how the painting turned out and we can’t wait to see it as a Vinyl.

During last few days I had a little break from painting to relax my mind and recharge after the full creative month of October!
The 31 days drawing INKTOBER challenge is a commitment and I wanted to stay focused during the whole month, without missing a day. It was my plan from the beginning to use Inktober to create a new drawing series and collection inspired by the prompts. The 31 drawings are available in my Shop as Limited Edition Prints. If you had your eyes on a drawing visit my Gallery and If you missed my October posts, or you’re new on my Blog, you can see and order prints of my Inktober drawings visiting my Gallery, I am happy I made it to the end without missing days. I thank you for following my Inktober and for your on going support and encouragement.
I cannot believe we are already in November, where the time goes?
Here in US where I live the weather still warm and feels not really Fall, is actually more of a “Summer” weather and is nice to spend outdoors evenings until last. These days we’re having intense sunsets in Southern California. Yesterday on my evening walk I took this video, for you to see the beauty and feel the magic of the sky! The intense color was overwhelming! What a great gift from nature! I am happy I was able to witness this sunset and capture this video. I love to share it with you, in hope to brighten your day where ever you are!
Note: No edit were made on the video, no filter, the colors are just as I took it with my iPhone!
