A Tribute to Tigger – Pet’s Portrait

Tigger Tribute and Daisy Mae

Hello friends,

Today I am happy to finally share this lovely watercolor painting I recently created!
This is one of my latest commissions I have been working on. About a month ago I was kindly requested to create a “Pet’s Tribute Portrait” in loving memory of Tigger, the adorable gray Tabby cat you see in foreground of my painting. The sweet lady that contacted me is a follower Blogger Crystal she loves my art since last year she was the winner of one of my Giveaways. She requested this painting because this year on September 11th was the five years anniversary since Tigger crossed the rainbow bridge.  Crystal followed my World watercolor month during the month of July and saw several animals I have painted. The Squirrel, the Owl,  they lead her asking me if I do paint cats and of course I do! I said yes!
I am not new to custom Pet’s Tribute paintings. I asked her to send me some photos and she explained to me her request. She sent two photos of her cats, the ones you see here below.  

Tigger

Tigger and Daisy Mae (his sister from different parents), the two cats grow up together.  Crystal at first requested two paintings, one for each cat, then during our talking ideas via email exchange, she thought that would have been great to have one painting featuring the two cats laying together. I agreed, that was the best idea as I could envision it already in my mind, we agreed on everything and that was it! From these two simple photos, my only references I was able to reunite the two cats in my painting. Crystal loved it!  I am so glad and happy that I I was able to make her happy. I love animals very much their love to us is unconditional and amazing.  I lost several loved pets myself,  I carry them all in my heart.
I am always open to commissions requests like this one, to honor the memory and life of a loved pet.

Daisy Mae

I loved to paint Tigger and Daisy Mae and once again I want to thank Crystal for loving my work and wanted me to create this painting! Thank you!

If you would like a Tribute pet’s portrait in loving memory of your lost pet or a portrait of your living pet for questions, details and price Contact me here on my Blog or send a custom request on my ETSY Shop  I would be happy to discuss your idea!

Here you can see only few of many other pets tributes and portraits I made throughout the years.

INKTOBER 2020 – October Drawing Challenges Official Prompt Lists

78315df6f0f901f4-weblogo
October Challenge

COMING SOON!
“INKTOBER 2020 
31 Days 31 Drawings”

Since 2009 in  October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.

InkTober 2020
October is coming soon! And it means that artists around the world will participate to this great and inspiring drawing challenge.  This is my 5th year of InkTober, I will do all my best to create as much as possible and I hope to be able to complete the 31 days.  This year honestly I have no idea how I will approach the two challenges! Usually in the past few years I have followed the Official prompt lists and to make it more challenging and intriguing I combined the two challenges in one, combining the prompts! Not easy to do. Sometimes the two prompts aren’t a good match but that’s were creativity do the magic! Right now, I am navigating ideas  trying to make plans, not sure I want to combine the two challenges together. If not, I need to pick one, or not follow the official prompts and make my own list….lots to think for me! Your suggestions are welcome! ❤

Jake Parker the illustrator and creator of Inktober  released the new “Official Prompt List 2020” and I love to post it here so that you have some time until October 1st to plan and get ready!

Inktober 2020 Official Prompt List

My Inktober history:

2016  following the “Official Prompt List” I have created a “Fantasy Character Design”  which I love, her name is ©Ylia.  I have illustrated her adventures inspired by the daily prompts and developed her character and story throughout the month. If you follow me from the last 4 years, then you should remember my character Ylia,  the pic below shows one of my entry and you can see her. If you like to see more check all the other entries about her on my InkTober 2016  Gallery:

Day #12 – WORRIED – InkTober 2016 ©Carolina Russo

I had fun to create ©Ylia, she is a futuristic kind of “Superhero Warrior” with a nod to the past, she is a Messenger of “Love and Peace” and a creature of the universe that fight for the universal love. Most of my drawings were accompanied by quotes and Haiku poems that I wrote. Maybe one day I will publish an illustrated book of @Ylia Adventures! I would love that!  We will see what the future brings!

2017 I have Joined the two challenges InkTober and MabsDrawlloweenClub this one is a little more spoocky – Halloween theme prompts are created by Pop Surrealist artist Mab Graves!  My daily drawings were inspired by the combination of the two challenges daily prompt words creating my own hybrid challenge “DrawllooweenTober”  yes this was my idea to enable me to join both challenges daily creating one drawing. And well it was pretty challenging, not easy but I wanted to make it harder to stimulate creativity in a different way and I made it! The outcome was a lovely collection of dark themed spooky drawings which I am very pleased!

My drawing “Frankenstein Bride” of this series become my first Die Cut Sticker

Tears In The Fire

Tears In The Fire – Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a great start of the year!
I know lately I have been pretty quiet and didn’t post here on the Blog as much I’d like to. I took a break to recharge my creativity.  I didn’t know how to feel in this beginning of the year, there is so much going on in the world.

Today post is about the release of my new watercolor painting with the title Tears In The Fire this is my first painting of the 2020 and it is very special to me.
I feel so much sadness for the heartbreaking situation affecting Australia from months under the catastrophic wildfires that is destroying, animals, wildlife, natural habitats, and people.  Sidney University experts estimated that over 1 billion of animals has tragically perished it’s heartbreaking!

I gave the title Tears In The Fire because I can only imagine how much, tears, pain and suffering these beautiful animals are going through. My painting is dedicated to the wonderful Koalas 🐨 and to all the rescuers that are helping and caring daily for them to heal painful burnt paws and injuries and to all the other animals in desperate need of care surviving this horrific fire.

I hope that my painting can rise awareness and give a tiny contribution to support the wonderful Koalas and wildlife victims in this terrible time for them. I love all the animals and now they needs our help, together we can make a little difference in their recovery. Since I was a child I dream to one day being able to hold a lovely Koala in my arms! I hope I will one day! ♥️

Prints of my painting are now available for purchase as Open Edition signed and hand enhanced in size 5×7 and 8×10 inches please visit my >>  ETSY Shop

Tears In The Fire – Open Edition Prints from Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell is hosting a Music – Art Charity Auction for the Deaf Academy

Music and Art together for Charity…

Wonderful Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, 90s Shoegaze pop music artist, has organized a Charity auction fundraising for the new UK, Devon’s Deaf Academy project to open on April 2020. Rachel Goswell is personally involved with the Academy and sensitive to the problem of hearing impairment because affect her 9 years old son Jesse.  Rachel and her husband Steve Clarke recently formed “The Soft Cavalry” released their debut album which includes the song “Bulletproof” and the interesting and beautiful Video  performed by the duo in sign language.

The Soft Cavalry – Rachel Goswell and Steve Clarke performing in Bulletproof Video

Rachel Goswell expressed her motivations behind the Bulletproof video in a press release: “For a long time now I have wanted to do a video that incorporates BSL (British Sign Language) due to my son being Profoundly Deaf with no hearing. He also has additional needs with CHARGE Syndrome that brings many added complications. I live within two worlds both Hearing and Deaf; and have learned a lot in the last nine years about the many barriers Deaf people can face in our society. One of the main points I was taught very quickly is how music is accessible to Deaf people. Of course music can be felt through vibration but visually I feel so much more could be done to enhance the experience. We made this video with the support of Sign Up BSL to translate ‘Bulletproof’ so that the song flows properly in BSL. Sometimes with signing videos – they can be a literal translation of the words (Sign Supported English) which will make little sense to the Deaf viewer. Our hope is that we have achieved this and also that one day as my son gets older and develops his language skills he will be able to understand this song.”

During the past couple of months since Rachel announced the donation of one of her guitars, numerous bands and artists connected with her. She gathered and will auction off amazing generously donated items from great bands, musicians and creative artists. The auction lots  includes unique Music and Art collectibles, memorabilia signed items, screen prints, set lists, shirts, jewelry, signed albums and lots more.  Just to name a few, Rachel Goswell donated one of her loved guitars signed by Slowdive members, the band also donated a variety of rare items.  A long still growing list of over sixty unique items is ready for the upcoming auction, includes donations from The Cure, Cocteau Twins, Mogwai, The Cult, Low, Ash, My Bloody Valentine and many more.

I am honored that I was able to contribute and donate my art for this great cause, give help for deaf children to have a new beautiful place. I have donated two prints a “One Of A Kind” Limited Edition Fine Art Prints of my recent watercolor paintings a portrait of Robert Smith “THE CURE” and of Frightened Rabbit -Scott Hutchison Tribute. Prints are OOAK Hand Enhanced with gold ink and feature hand written words from favorite songs! Since Rachel shared them on her Instagram I can share them here in preview.
