Yesterday After – Digital Collage of Watercolor Paintings ©CarolinaRusso

Hello everyone,

today I am very happy to announce and welcome you to the “Launch Party” of my new redesign Blog and Shop here on YesterdayAfter! ❤
I hope you will love the new look! And please keep reading because in the end you will find a little surprise!

I first launched this Blog three years ago my first post went live on March 24, 2015, I had three wonderful years here blogging and launching my Art. Amazing accomplishments were made throughout the years. My Blog had grown beautifully and so my dear Followers and supporters. I am so thankful for all the wonderful connections made worldwide with inspiring people. I thank all my Bloggers friends that still here in this community from our beginning. I am so thankful for all the new followers that recently visited here and decided to stay. I am so grateful for all the ones that aren’t here yet but they are coming to this path! Thank you everyone!

It was a while now that I had in mind to redesign my Blog!
After three years I felt the need to start fresh, change the look and make it more mine using my own Artworks. I have been working on this project from the past weeks and right now I think is ready!  I also wanted to create a new way to navigate through the pages, I hope you find it easy. and I wanted to include my New Shop. I no longer will sell any of my Art and Jewelry Designs on ETSY. As an independent Artist I like to be on my own in pretty much everything. I have decided to include my Shop here, to make shopping easier for you and to be able to have direct contact with me. I also wanted to be able to give you a better price on my Art, cutting all the “hidden fees” of a third-party involved with an external shop, and I have reduced shipping price for International . What you will experience is not an ordinary and classic e-commerce shop with the traditional cart system, no, you don’t find that here. The Shop has more of a website layout and, it is linked to my Blog. Just make sure to follow the menu and to read my guide that you find in each page and you can order and purchase my art in few easy steps.  During the redesign stage, I have created my own system and made it very easy for you to follow and to shop. If you ever have questions or find any problem don’t hesitate to contact me!

❤ FREE Shipping on any print purchased during this weekend!<3

Now to celebrate the launch of the new Shop I offer “Free Shipping” on any order of any of my Limited Edition Fine Art Prints, placed within today Friday 8/17/2018 and during the whole weekend until Monday 8/20/2018!

Today weekly photo challenge for  The Daily Post  theme  is ““I’d Rather Be…” and my answer is Creating!

I love to create my art and express my creativity in many different ways, I am a full-time artist and I love what I do. For me there is not much of “I’d rather be” because I try to create art every day! I am a watercolor painter, an illustrator and jewelry designer, I love photography and digital photo manipulations. I also like to write poems, haiku and short stories.  

Day #15: Witch _ Mysterious

 

My watercolor painting series are all available in Limited Edition Signed Fine Art Prints.

Day #2 Goblin Divided – Supplies

This is me on the beach in action with my camera trying to capture the moment…

I love to create photo manipulations and I have created a Collection titled “When Nature Meets Humans” this Portrait title is “Proud” I like the Concept to mix Nature with Humans and create a unique One of a kind Digital Portraits. This is my evolving  idea and concept to combining the beauty of Nature with Humans telling a story in the form of Visual-Art, combining and blending a number of different photos in one unique portrait. Each photo has a meaning that tell the Portrait story. You can see more of this collection here and in this Gallery.

Nature is my biggest inspiration in everything I create…

I also love to create jewelry for  my “Among Nature” Jewelry Collection.
The nature is my greatest inspiration for my Jewelry Designs. I often use found in nature objects hand-picked by me in special places I visit.  All my creations are made using only beautiful natural gemstones, seashells, fossils, woods, bone and crystals which  I combine with precious and semi precious metals.

Sometimes I write when words are whispered to my soul…this is one of my poems

Hands

Artist precious hands,
intensity and love givers.

Hands guided by a heart pulse,
forging and hammering metals,
holding precious stones.

Inspiration from the soul,
happiness  and art givers,
emotions in a motion of senses.

stroking brushes fulfilled with passion,
dripping water on white paper,
splashes of colors take forms.

Ink tears into the unknown
a creation is born.

Music – Interview with James Radcliffe

My interview with Music Composer and independent Artist James Radcliffe.

img_1878
I am so happy and grateful that I was able to do this Interview!

Today I am very pleased to introduce you with James Radcliffe a wonderful multi talented Artist, a dear friend from the music world and part of our community.  James is an independent artist a music composer from the beautiful land of Scotland.

Thank you James for  your precious time doing this interview with me. I love to give the opportunity to get to know you and your art.

Let’s start with the questions:

For the reader that doesn’t know you and your music, can you please introduce who is James Radcliffe?

I am an independent artist based in Edinburgh Scotland. I make music, I write, I take photographs and perform live. In the last 4 years or so, I have built a grassroots social media following in excess of 100’000 people.  This is what allows me to make art as a living.

Your music has a very distinctive sound and style, when listening it brings you in far away places, almost out of this world. Can you describe your creative process and what prompt inspire you while creating? And how do you categorize your genre?

First, thank you very much, I take this as a great compliment.  It is hard to nail down a creative process, as much of it is a mystery.  I will say though, that there are two main phases: the creative phase and the craft phase.  The work is usually born from a kind of state of mind which is outside of time, when I am fully absorbed.  The craft is where I take the pieces of rock and polish them into something beautiful.  I cycle back and forth between these two until the work is finished.

You just released your new beautiful and fantastic Album ” Murder The Impossible” can you tell us your feelings and meanings behind it?

Murder the Impossible was a collection of tracks that I worked on in a very specific way in the studio.  It took me over a year to get them right.  Each of the tracks was aimed at a specific feeling, for example, the first track ‘World Enough and Time’ was aimed at the feeling of ecstasy I get from truly great music. One of the reasons it took me so long, is because I played all the instruments, including the cello, and did all of the studio work.

Murder The Impossible is the 5th genre-defying release from James Radcliffe.

What is your creative Dream Project?

The thing that I am working on right now.  One of the great things about being independent is that you get to choose exactly what you want to work on.

What is happening at the moment? Are you working on any new ideas? Do you have in plan for any live gig?

A lot of stuff is happening right now.  I am generally always working, on new ideas and current work.  I think I am going to do something quite exciting and new for my next project, which I may release quite soon.  I am also playing with the idea of taking all my music off the internet.

Live performance will definitely be happening soon.  And I am looking into touring options as we speak.

This question is very personal and introspective, I love to ask this to artists. If you describe or picture your inner soul, how will you describe it? And what color it would be?

Like a roiling ocean.  And black.  Black as strong coffee.
