Frida Kahlo Tribute Portrait

– Frida Kahlo Portrait  –

 

Frida Kahlo – Watercolor Painting ©CarolinaRusso

Hello friends,
welcome to a warm August!

My post today is the official release of my new painting dedicated to historic Surrealist artist  “Frida Kahlo” the month of July celebrate the anniversaries of her Birthday and end of her life,  (6 July 1907 – 13 July 1954) she was a Mexican painter recognized as one of the most revolutionary Latin American artist, best known for her bright color paintings and especially for her self-portraits. She made many portraits telling her own life story dramatically painted. Her paintings were inspired by her culture using symbolism and mythology in her surrealistic style inspired by the nature and artifacts of her native country Mexico. She is also one of the most painted artist around the world, I have seen tribute paintings of her in any creative style and medium. Artists worldwide love to recreate her bold character identified by her eyebrows recon as unibrow iconic shape. This is my second painting dedicated to her. I made my first one two years ago in July 2017 it was a half figure of her inspired by some of her own famous paintings you can see my painting here.

This July 2019 I painted a tribute portrait in my style watercolor and ink which portrays her face with the typical braided hair up do ornate by colorful rose flowers, she wore flowers in her hair most of the time and that’s how she appear in most of the existing photos throughout her life. I am happy overall with this painting especially with the expression I was able to capture in her eyes.

Frida Kahlo – Watercolor Painting ©CarolinaRusso

The Moth I painted with black ink and gold is just symbolic in a good way. I love moths and I just thought it will complete this tribute portrait to Frida as you see the Moth has a cross on her chest as symbol of “Faith” and two heart shape in her wings they symbolize “Love” the gold means  “Light”. There isn’t any superstitious or dark meanings behind my moth. Moths are “Nocturnal Spirit Animal” they are attracted to light and their meaning resonates with truth, faith and determination you can see a little video I took of this painting to show the shiny gold and I posted on my Instagram!

Sadly Frida Kahlo discovered the art of painting while in bed severely injured from a terrible accident. To take her mind away from the pain and to find a way to pass time she discovered her art and started paint self-portraits one of her famous quotes says: “I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best” there are many of her own quotes which her words clearly describe her character like this one “Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?” Or “I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality”  and how she describe herself  “I am not sick. I am broken. But I am happy to be alive as long as I can paint” – Frida Khalo

 My watercolors is outlined with black and white ink pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Ink pens used COPIC Multiliner Black ink #03.

Art For Music Series! AURORA Portrait – New Release!

 ART FOR MUSIC Series!

AURORA – Art For Music Series – Watercolor Painting ©CarolinaRusso

NEW RELEASE
– AURORA Watercolor Painting Portrait –

AURORA

Today post feature the release of my new Music Artist Painting Portrait!

My new watercolor painting is a “Fan Art” Portrait of  “AURORA”  included in my ongoing project and Collection “ART FOR MUSIC”   my series inspired by music artists I love 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.

Today Release is for my New Watercolor Painting a Portrait dedicated to beautiful and unique AURORA her dreamy and pure emotional music stands out from the music artists crowd in today music world showing something different and unique. Her live shows are very emotional as all her songs are and made you feel like travelling through a tunnel of changing emotions from sad and dark to happy and joyful tunes throughout the whole show! Aurora started to write songs secretly at very early age following her own path and what she has produced and released is wonderful as in her songs she explores feelings and emotions in-depth mastering her own creative ways to communicate what pulses inside her soul not just with words as you can feel it in her gorgeous sound of her voice and see it in her body language. She is so expressive through her blue eyes and facial mimic to her hands and arms movements. She has the ability to turn one with the music while singing and dancing over her notes she is free to be authentically herself also wearing unique and artfully created outfits. She has a great way to perform in her live shows she connects deeply with who receive her message…her fans that she call her Tribe and warriors of light. She has an ethereal look with white platinum hair and pale skin she is like a walking tiny fairy stepped out of a fairy tale for a moment and ready to take you back in with her. Her uniqueness in all her aspects is why I like her so much and why I decided to create this painting dedicated to her and all her fans.

AURORA On Stage

Aurora Aksnes is her birth name as she kept it as her name AURORA she is a Norwegian singer, songwriter, producer. I think Aurora was a prodigy child as she started composing melodies on a piano at the age of 6 and writing songs in her own world at the age of 9 as she still very young now she is already Internationally recognized Award winner and very much loved.  She became active to share her songs and music in 2012 until her  debut in 2015 with her beautiful and successful  EP “Running With The Wolves” the same year one of her single “Runaway” in UK received over 1 millions of streams on Spotify just in the first 6 weeks since the debut release.  During the year 2016 she released worldwide her studio album  “All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend“, in  2018 AURORA released her first half of her second EP album title “Infections of a Different Kind (Step 1)”, while she plans to release the second half “Step 2” to follow in 2019 or 2020. At this moment she is here in US for her North America Tour.
