A Tribute to Tigger – Pet’s Portrait

Tigger Tribute and Daisy Mae

Hello friends,

Today I am happy to finally share this lovely watercolor painting I recently created!
This is one of my latest commissions I have been working on. About a month ago I was kindly requested to create a “Pet’s Tribute Portrait” in loving memory of Tigger, the adorable gray Tabby cat you see in foreground of my painting. The sweet lady that contacted me is a follower Blogger Crystal she loves my art since last year she was the winner of one of my Giveaways. She requested this painting because this year on September 11th was the five years anniversary since Tigger crossed the rainbow bridge.  Crystal followed my World watercolor month during the month of July and saw several animals I have painted. The Squirrel, the Owl,  they lead her asking me if I do paint cats and of course I do! I said yes!
I am not new to custom Pet’s Tribute paintings. I asked her to send me some photos and she explained to me her request. She sent two photos of her cats, the ones you see here below.  

Tigger

Tigger and Daisy Mae (his sister from different parents), the two cats grow up together.  Crystal at first requested two paintings, one for each cat, then during our talking ideas via email exchange, she thought that would have been great to have one painting featuring the two cats laying together. I agreed, that was the best idea as I could envision it already in my mind, we agreed on everything and that was it! From these two simple photos, my only references I was able to reunite the two cats in my painting. Crystal loved it!  I am so glad and happy that I I was able to make her happy. I love animals very much their love to us is unconditional and amazing.  I lost several loved pets myself,  I carry them all in my heart.
I am always open to commissions requests like this one, to honor the memory and life of a loved pet.

Daisy Mae

I loved to paint Tigger and Daisy Mae and once again I want to thank Crystal for loving my work and wanted me to create this painting! Thank you!

If you would like a Tribute pet’s portrait in loving memory of your lost pet or a portrait of your living pet for questions, details and price Contact me here on my Blog or send a custom request on my ETSY Shop  I would be happy to discuss your idea!

Tears In The Fire

Tears In The Fire – Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a great start of the year!
I know lately I have been pretty quiet and didn’t post here on the Blog as much I’d like to. I took a break to recharge my creativity.  I didn’t know how to feel in this beginning of the year, there is so much going on in the world.

Today post is about the release of my new watercolor painting with the title Tears In The Fire this is my first painting of the 2020 and it is very special to me.
I feel so much sadness for the heartbreaking situation affecting Australia from months under the catastrophic wildfires that is destroying, animals, wildlife, natural habitats, and people.  Sidney University experts estimated that over 1 billion of animals has tragically perished it’s heartbreaking!

I gave the title Tears In The Fire because I can only imagine how much, tears, pain and suffering these beautiful animals are going through. My painting is dedicated to the wonderful Koalas 🐨 and to all the rescuers that are helping and caring daily for them to heal painful burnt paws and injuries and to all the other animals in desperate need of care surviving this horrific fire.

I hope that my painting can rise awareness and give a tiny contribution to support the wonderful Koalas and wildlife victims in this terrible time for them. I love all the animals and now they needs our help, together we can make a little difference in their recovery. Since I was a child I dream to one day being able to hold a lovely Koala in my arms! I hope I will one day! ♥️

Prints of my painting are now available for purchase as Open Edition signed and hand enhanced in size 5×7 and 8×10 inches please visit my >>  ETSY Shop
