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.

Inspired by a Song – Haiku 5.7.5 – I Don’t Know

Summer Skies – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo


I Don’t Know

And now I climbed clouds
I stole the moon because of you
Oh I am nowhere now

-CR

Haiku 5.7.5
Inspired by the words of the song “Harlem River” by ©Kevin Morby

This is my second Haiku of the 2019 inspired by one of my favorite song lyrics. Last week I posted my first one title “Dark” Inspired by a song of The Cure. I started this “Favorite SongHaiku Series”  inspired by my friend at  Cyranny’s Cove!  and I have seen others getting inspired to do this as my dear  friend Syl  he posted his beautiful Haiku “When The Wind Blows”  inspired  by one of his favorite songs. I like to do this very much and thank everyone that join in!  Today I was inspired to write a second Haiku by one of my favorite songs “Harlem River” by Kevin Morby l love the sound of this song and especially this specific version of 9 minutes long I love the long instrumental part in the final of the song. I often listen this song on repeat while painting! I am sure you will enjoy the song and if you are brave enough try to write your Haiku pick your favorite song!

Try to write your Haiku from your favorite song it’s fun, a great practice and very challenging…
How to do it?  Go through the lyrics and use the words that more speaks to you to create your Haiku be careful to keep the words in a way that combined in your Haiku will remain the song! Yes I know isn’t easy but you would be surprised!

I am thinking to make this as a weekly or monthly Challenge where we can all post a link to our song’s inspired Haiku!
What do you think will you be interested to participate?
Let me know and I will think how to create the event here on my Blog! Any suggestion is welcome 😉
Leave me a comment if you like the idea  so that I know I wont be alone…. ❤

Thank You!

New Painting – Princess Cordelia – #drawitinyourstyle Challenge #1

Draw It In Your Style Challenge

Princess Cordelia – Watercolor ink painting ©CarolinaRusso

This month I have participated to a very inspiring painting challenge hosted on Instagram by Artist Annie Stegg Gerard
she challenged us posting her first 2019 oil painting “Princess Cordelia” for a “Draw It Your Style Challenge!” To enter we had to draw Cordelia in our own style being free to change anything we wanted. Annie’s painting is stunning just as it is all her Art.  Ethereal, fantastic and dreamy. I was so enchanted by this beautiful painting it gave me feelings of peace, serenity and love for animals and nature very inspiring to me that of course I didn’t think twice I wanted to recreate it in my own signature style. I loved to paint her and I like the outcome.

Princess Cordelia – Oil Painting by Artist ©Annie Stegg Gerard

Annie’s art world is….
Inspired by nature, folklore and mythology, her work evokes emotion and imagination in the viewer.  Annie has a special love for the 18h century Rococo painters who have had a large influence on her own method. She finds inspiration in their imagination, and the dreamlike palette and lively brushwork that combine to create a wonderful atmosphere of enchantment.” I suggest you to visit her website at Gallery Gerard

I hope that you like how I have recreated mine in watercolors and ink and please leave me comments let me know your impressions and feelings about it! I really would like to know!

I have to tell you that it was a bit intimidating at first, because Annie is an amazing Artist some of her clients just to name a few are in the movie and gaming industry Warner Bros, Disney, Dreamworks and more… but Annie has been so lovely and commented on my work in progress and again when I posted on Instagram the finished painting, she said that it is beautiful and that means so much to me. What do you think?
