Art For Music Series! New Release: Robert Smith “THE CURE” Portrait

ART FOR MUSIC Series!

New Release
– Robert Smith “THE CURE” Watercolor Painting Portrait –

Today post feature the release of my new watercolor painting a Fan Art portrait for my Collection “ART FOR MUSIC” a series inspired by music artists and by my passion for music. In this series I like to create artworks using several media, traditional watercolor paintings, ink drawings, digital art, photo manipulation and any other media that will inspire my creations.

The New Release of my watercolor painting is the  Portrait of Robert Smith the musician lead singer, guitarist, lyricist, songwriter  and the only consistent member of the iconic UK band “THE CURE” co-founded with Lol Tolhurst in 1976.  I am a lifelong fan of this amazing band, their music has been and still the soundtrack of most of my life. From a long time I wanted to paint a portrait of Robert Smith but it didn’t happen until yesterday. For some bizarre reasons I felt the wish and urge to paint since I haven’t painted much during this week. I wanted to paint, I was searching online for inspiration and I got inspired to paint Robert portrait right after I came across a nice photo  shared in one of the various Fan Groups of The Cure that I’ve joined on Facebook. That was the magic moment when I came across the color photo posted down below. I said to myself “today I am going to paint him!” I sat down and started to paint peacefully for hours listening my favorite albums of the band until the portrait was done! Isn’t amazing how creativity and inspiration works? Most of the time it strikes when you don’t even expect it! It’s fantastic! If ever Robert see my portrait I hope he likes it! ❤

The 2018 is a great year and a milestone for The Cure band because they are “Celebrating the 40 Years Anniversary 1978 – 2018” last July in Hyde Park,  London, UK they celebrated with a great concert and more to come in 2019! They are such a wonderful band is great that they are playing better than ever and still together! I am so happy that I was able to  paint my portrait during this milestone and commemorative year. I have attended their Concert in 2016  they came to US, Los Angeles during their North American Tour and I wrote a very detailed Blog post about that unforgettable and magic 3 hours concert I can’t wait to see them again. If you like you can read my wonderful experience of that day at The Hollywood Bowl read it > Here

This is the photo of “Robert Smith” that inspired my Portrait! What I loved is that he look you straight in the eyes!

A couple of days ago I have received some nice photos from Nu-San and I am so happy to finally be able to share them and let you see the finished product the album “Nu Nostalgia” is beautiful and alive now! My artistic part in the project “The Cover” turned out just the way I had envisioned it and  it’s a Gatefold style Cover, when it opens, you can see my whole painting!

A custom request in the specific size of 12 x 24 inches. This is the result of our great collaboration a very unique custom commission for me which I am very proud. I am happy that I can reveal all the  details about this project. It all started when last November 2017 I was contacted by Electronic Music Composer  Sandy Bain aka “Nu-San” from Scotland, UK. Nu-San loves my art and owns other paintings and my Limited Edition Prints. At that time he was working on his new album and had a starting idea when he asked me to create a Painting inspired by a “Gothic haunting style” in my own style that he wanted to  use as the album cover for his  new album, the rest is now history, this is the outcome.

A wonderful project that I am so honored, grateful and thankful beyond words that Nu-San wanted 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 ” this is a wish come true for me and for Nu-San as he has multiple albums in his discography but they are CD version, this is his first Album produced as a Vinyl record and CD.

This project and watercolor painting is also included in my Collection  “ART FOR MUSIC” a series of artworks created and inspired by music artists and collaborations.

My Original painting: is a watercolor and ink portrait in my signature style with a hint of Gothic and a light feeling of darkness reflecting in the light tones of colors.

I enjoyed painting this atmospheric portrait while listening to his music to be able to deliver the spirit of  Nu-San in my creation. We are very happy about how the painting turned out and now to see the Album as finished product is a great joy!

New Release! Watercolor Painting “All Is Not Lost” – Tribute Series

Not All Is Lost – Watercolor, Ink Painting ©Carolina Russo  – Painting #2 Scott Hutchison Tribute Series

NEW PAINTING RELEASE!

Today post is to Officially Release my new watercolor painting
” ALL IS NOT LOST”

Limited Edition Fine Art Prints – Edition of #60 Prints

I am very happy today to finally be able to reveal and officially release my new painting. The Original was just delivered to its new home. The painting was a Commission, requested by a dear friend and a Fan of Scott Hutchison. I was asked by Mick to create a second tribute painting dedicated to Scott Hutchison but in a different way. Mick had a starting idea and gave me the freedom to develop the idea artistically creating my vision and work following my inspirations.
This is my second painting dedicated to Scott Hutchison after my Tribute Portrait released 20 June, 2018.

Scott-Hutchison – Photo by Ross Gilmore/Redferns

I am sure you remember but for who is new, my #1 painting is the “Tribute Portrait dedicated to Scottish music artist “Scott Hutchison”  a very emotional piece created In Loving Memory of Scott (20/11/81 – 10/5/18) R.I.P
Scott Hutchison was a wonderful music artist founding and primary songwriter of indie rock band Frightened Rabbit   The first painting is my humble contribution honoring Scott soul and to  raise awareness on a very important issue right now in Scotland and in the World. Mental Health and suicide prevention. Scott Hutchison sadly and suddenly left our world last May 10, 2018  at age of 36. Struggling with depression”.

My New Release is the painting #2 title “All Is Not Lost” each of my two paintings has strong meanings, including very emotional elements, familiar to whom followed Scott life and music. This painting also have a double meaning and very personal to me because is related to my own life. (I will probably explain in the future}. The first painting, is the Tribute to Scott and his wonderful soul that is alive and will shine to us forever. The painting carries a message of “Legacy”. My second painting is dedicated to who is left, family, friends, fans and carries a message of “Hope”. Please highly  advise you to read my painting meaning to fully understand it especially if you’re struggling with your emotions.

Painting Meaning: My painting is an emotional piece that carries messages of Hope. There are a lots of different emotions into this creation. The title “All Is Not Lost” gives an indirect Tribute to Scott Hutchison, these are his words and I want these words to resonate within all of us. The view of Scotland “Port Edgar”, such a beautiful and peaceful view and now with a strong reminder. The girl standing in the water is touched by the blowing wind, she is a soul that represents who is left, she is all of us. She is looking still and fearless to the horizon for answers and looking to the future. She also represents “Hope” and “Life”, that “All Is Not Lost”. We have to keep going onward! And find the answers inside our self! Next to her, emerging from the water, there is the FR double cross, that represents Scott presence and that he would be always there in our heart, with family, friends, fans.

Note: My first painting is a Tribute to Scott, this is my second painting as follows and legacy to the first is a Tribute to who Scott left his legacy.

At this moment I have created two paintings that are a perfect match to one another, they complete each other beautifully as the feelings of the meaningful messages. I have used the same color palette and gold ink as enhancement touches in the #1 painting on the double cross and in #2 painting on the girl hair moved by the wind. I love both paintings dearly. I loved each minute and hours spent painting such emotional pieces. They looks beautiful on a wall together. I was thinking maybe to create a third painting and close the “Scott Hutchison Tribute Series as a Trilogy”. So far we have two messages: Legacy and Hope I am thinking at the third message. For now it’s only an idea, let’s see what you all think and if will come true!

My Message to whom will get this print: Thank you once again!  I hope that you love this second painting as much as I do and I hope that it will speak to you and reach your heart and soul deeply. You’re not alone, do not despair, keep going onward, “All Is Not Lost” we still have hope – Carolina

  • When the painting was delivered to Mick, I had one of the most beautiful and heartfelt feedback message sent me on Facebook. I am so thankful, grateful and for the given opportunity to create this piece and I am humbled that my art was heart-felt so deeply, from someone who loves Scott so much is more than I could ever imagine. I love to share this beautiful feedback message with you:
Alba Mick to Carolina Russo  September 25 at 12:01 PM
I have received the most Amazing Painting today from Carolina Russo.

Carolina Russo will have an Official release of this painting soon!!
Below is part of my message to Carolina Russo after seeing it. I feel this gives the best description on how seeing it made me feel.

Dear Carolina,
I am physically shaking with emotion. I am so overwhelmed, I am struggling to write. You have created a masterpiece. It is so beautiful. The Image in the water of the double cross, the bridge, the way she has her feet in the water, the flowing hair with the gold through it. I am blown away. It has so much depth and emotion.
You have taken a very simple idea and made it in to not just a work of art, but a real masterpiece. My heart lurched when i seen it. words cannot describe the joy i am feeling. I cannot believe you have created this beautiful piece.
I do not think there are enough words in the english language to express the way I feel. My mind is blown. You are a real genius. I feel it is one of the best paintings not only of yours, but that I have ever seen.
My gratitude to you Carolina Russo, Thank you seems so insufficient to express how I feel. Reading your hand written letter with the Meaning and the painting’s title “All is Not Lost”. Thank you so much.
Alba Mick
Michael S.

Scott Hutchison Tribute – Watercolor Painting ©CarolinaRusso

Hello everyone,

Today post is to Officially Release my new watercolor painting!

My painting it is a Tribute Portrait dedicated to Scottish music artist “Scott Hutchison”  this is a very emotional painting created In Loving Memory of Scott (20/11/81 – 10/5/18) R.I.P
Scott Hutchison was a wonderful music artist founding and primary songwriter of indie rock band Frightened Rabbit

This painting is my humble contribution to honor Scott soul and to raise awareness on Mental Health and suicide prevention. Scott Hutchison left our world last May 10, 2018  at age of 36. Struggling with the demons of depression. He never hid his suffering, but translated his feelings using his alienation in words creating songs that touched the heart of many around the world. He always reassured fans who reached to him about their problems that “there’s always hope”.

The darkness has been part of his life, sadly until the end of his days. The darkness is something that he silently tried to fight in his own way. The double cross, is a symbol that Scott created, it is one of his drawings,  that recognize the band. I wanted to paint the double cross in gold because in my painting I wanted it to symbolize Scott wonderful soul that is alive and will shine to us forever.

My Message to whom will get this print: Thank you for loving it!

Nu-San is 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 album cover, you can see his face in my painting!

My painting is a watercolor and ink portrait in my signature style with a hint of Gothic and a light feeling of darkness. Nu-San asked me to include ravens birds, a graveyard scene, a castle and gave me the freedom to create. I enjoyed painting this atmospheric portrait while listening to Nu-San music to be able to deliver more in-depth the spirit of  Nu-San in my creation, we are very happy about how the painting turned out and now we can’t wait to see it as finished product.

Characters Illustration – A Collaboration with Author MJ Mallon – 1st Stop Blog Tour! #ABRSC

Hello everyone I hope that you all are enjoying Spring!
Today I have a nice announcement to do…

time has arrived and today I am very happy to post again about one of my latest collaboration and special commission done during the past months. This has been a great and interesting project that I have been working on!
During last Summer I was contacted by British Author  MJ Mallon for the creation of some character illustrations for her new book.   We have had a wonderful collaboration developed in the coming soon publication of the book in paperback edition, including my character illustrations.  MJ Mallon is a novel’s writer and a dear  friend in our Blog-World Community. To get to know more about her,  please  visit her Blog at MJ Mallon Author!

Today is also the start of MJ  blog tour for the release of her  paperback – The Curse of Time Book One Bloodstone. There will be a celebration on her blog, everyone is invited!
This post is the  first stop  on the #ABRSC tour, other blogs will follow in the next coming days.

The beautiful book  is a fantasy novel for young adults, inspired by supernatural, magic and paranormal. Many themes are touched into the intriguing and captivating story of Amelina Scott, a fifteen years old girl that lives in Cambridge,  England. With some magic help, Amelina discovers the truth of a shocking curse that destroyed her family happiness. If you like magic and supernatural you would love this novel. This is the first book and according to author MJ Mallon it would be a sequel and so a series.

The title is “The Curse Of Time” #1 Bloodstone  first published as Kindle Edition “Not Illustrated” launched August 2017.

Today I am very  happy to announce that the book would be released soon  in paperback edition during April 2018. I have created the Illustrations of two characters “Esme and the Creature Eruterac” I loved to create these watercolor paintings as portraits of the intriguing characters, MJ described them to me so well that I was able to bring them alive on paper.  I am so honored and very happy that my illustrations are included in black and white into the paperback edition, it is a great accomplishment and means a lot to me. This year you will see other great collaborations and very interesting projects that I am working on. Keep following!
