Hello friends,
I am so sorry that I have been quite and I haven’t posted lately. Not even for this beautiful event this year I am going to create one painting at week I have been very busy lately fulfilling orders for my Scott Hutchison Tribute Portrait.  I also had some very sad days I have lost two pets in the last 10 days so my heart is grieving!

Today painting it is off of the official prompt list.  The title I gave is “Universal Love”  is a watercolor enhanced with gold and fine line work with ink. I love the contrast of the raw sketch style in addition to the watercolor.

Visual Verse Published my New Poem “Abstract Dream”!

 

This month I have participated to the  monthly writing event that brings together Art and Words on VisualVerse.org Anthology Press.
Today my new poem was published!

The image  that you see here above is the starting point assigned this month by Visual Verse it is a challenge, you have one hour to write between 50 to 500 words. I had to write inspired by the image. I like to participate to this writing event, I find it to be very interesting and challenging for me that I am a visual artist and I love to illustrate and combine images with words.

I am happy to share this with you all! This is a nice achievement of my creative writings. My poem is now part Visual Verse Anthology Literary Press and  published on another of their Chapter.

You can read my poem here:
  Visual Verse  Anthology – Vol. 05 Chapter 03 –  “Abstract Dream” Page 82

This is my sixth Published piece on Visual Verse!

Here you can read all my published poems and short stories:  visualverse.org/writers/carolina-russo/

This is a link to the Archive with all the images and writings published until now!

 

I am so happy that my writings are included in this innovative Anthology Press, this is another way for my voice as an Artist to be heard.
I hope that you enjoy my poem! Please let me know what you think your comment means a lot to me!

Mystical Multitude is a Winner for Untwine Australia #newbeginnings

Mystical Multitude – Original Watercolor Graphite ©Carolina Russo

Hello friends,
I hope you all had great Holidays with family and loved ones. The 2018 is here!

A new year is a fresh start for a new beginning, hope and realization of dreams, may the beginning of this year fill you with love, inspiration and new strength to succeed in what you love.

Today I have a wonderful news!
I am so happy and honored to announce that I am one of the six “Winners” chosen by UntwineAustralia participating to their first word prompt Contest for 2018 @untwine.australia #newbeginnings  I have participated on Instagram posting my Watercolor – Graphite painting “Mystical Multitude”.
This Contest was open to writers, artists and photographers, inspired by the combination of Words with Images. I love to write Poetry, Haiku and Short Stories when they are whispered to my soul. As a Visual Artist this time I decided to only post my painting as the speaking image. In art often you no need words the painting will speak to your soul and you will read what you feel into it.

Mystical Multitude
 this is my meaning behind the painting, is inspired by how our emotions are flowing together in our reality, how feelings can transport us in many directions and how much we emotionally change. This portrait shows three different faces of women, but in a mystical and dreamy way it represents one person, the same woman in different moments and emotional state of her life, going through, transformation and changes”.

I felt that this painting was perfect to visually  illustrate the prompt word “New Beginnings” and I am so happy that Untwine Australia like it too! ❤

Utwine Australia – Winners

Yesterday I was tagged on Instagram with these two beautiful posts!


Thank you so much Untwine Australia, Untwine.me for loving my Art as much to make me a winner of #newbeginnings
A special thanks goes also to the wonderful Editor in Chief,  writer Jennifer Calvert of Ink And Quill

A great start of the year THANK YOU!

This painting is available in Limited Edition Fine Art Signed Prints if anyone is interested just Contact me directly ❤

Thank You!
