 ART FOR MUSIC Series!

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.

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!

There is a dark Forest
Run into the trees following my eyes
I hear a girl voice…

Haiku 5.7.5
Inspired by the words of the song “A Forest” Written by ©Robert Smith -THE CURE

 

Hope the New Year found you all well!
Today post is my first Haiku of the 2019 and I have to say that I wrote this Haiku in a whim right after I read the Haiku posted by my dear friend Cyranny, you can read it at her Blog Cyranny’s Cove!  She inspired me to create my Haiku using the words of one of my favorite songs, I also illustrated the Haiku with  one of my older watercolor paintings (Prints available in my Shop!)  I loved to do this and to write my Haiku I actually played a bit with the words and I have changed the sequence from the official lyrics but I was able to keep the sense and meaning of the words in the original song!   Check it out this is the beautiful song “A Forest”  of The Cure…I found a video that has the lyric on screen!

I think this is a great idea if you love music and love to write Haiku it is pretty challenging to create a Haiku from the words of a song…Sure it is a good practice I suggest you to pick your favorite song and try!  What do you think?

Thank You!

Art For Music Series! New Release: Robert Smith “THE CURE” Portrait

ART FOR MUSIC Series!

New Release
– Robert Smith “THE CURE” Watercolor Painting Portrait –

Today post feature the release of my new watercolor painting a Fan Art portrait for my Collection “ART FOR MUSIC” a series inspired by music artists 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.

The New Release of my watercolor painting is the  Portrait of Robert Smith the musician lead singer, guitarist, lyricist, songwriter  and the only consistent member of the iconic UK band “THE CURE” co-founded with Lol Tolhurst in 1976.  I am a lifelong fan of this amazing band, their music has been and still the soundtrack of most of my life. From a long time I wanted to paint a portrait of Robert Smith but it didn’t happen until yesterday. For some bizarre reasons I felt the wish and urge to paint since I haven’t painted much during this week. I wanted to paint, I was searching online for inspiration and I got inspired to paint Robert portrait right after I came across a nice photo  shared in one of the various Fan Groups of The Cure that I’ve joined on Facebook. That was the magic moment when I came across the color photo posted down below. I said to myself “today I am going to paint him!” I sat down and started to paint peacefully for hours listening my favorite albums of the band until the portrait was done! Isn’t amazing how creativity and inspiration works? Most of the time it strikes when you don’t even expect it! It’s fantastic! If ever Robert see my portrait I hope he likes it! ❤

The 2018 is a great year and a milestone for The Cure band because they are “Celebrating the 40 Years Anniversary 1978 – 2018” last July in Hyde Park,  London, UK they celebrated with a great concert and more to come in 2019! They are such a wonderful band is great that they are playing better than ever and still together! I am so happy that I was able to  paint my portrait during this milestone and commemorative year. I have attended their Concert in 2016  they came to US, Los Angeles during their North American Tour and I wrote a very detailed Blog post about that unforgettable and magic 3 hours concert I can’t wait to see them again. If you like you can read my wonderful experience of that day at The Hollywood Bowl read it > Here

After almost one year of collaboration with my dear friend Electronic Music Composer  “Nu-San” from Scotland, I can finally share that his  album is out now! What a great accomplishment for Nu-San and for me too! Congratulations Sandy!
I loved to be the chosen Artist and creator of a commissioned Original Painting designed to be the “Album Cover” for Nu-San new album “Nu Nostalgia”. I am sure that you remember some of my updates and previous posts about this creation and exciting project. A couple of days ago I have received some nice photos from Nu-San and I am so happy to finally be able to share them and let you see the finished product the album “Nu Nostalgia” is beautiful and alive now! My artistic part in the project “The Cover” turned out just the way I had envisioned it and  it’s a Gatefold style Cover, when it opens, you can see my whole painting!

The Album Cover and Original Watercolor Painting Details: The Original artwork for the Cover is my watercolor and ink painting in my signature style. A custom request in the specific size of 12 x 24 inches. This is the result of our great collaboration a very unique custom commission for me which I am very proud. I am happy that I can reveal all the  details about this project. It all started when last November 2017 I was contacted by Electronic Music Composer  Sandy Bain aka “Nu-San” from Scotland, UK. Nu-San loves my art and owns other paintings and my Limited Edition Prints. At that time he was working on his new album and had a starting idea when he asked me to create a Painting inspired by a “Gothic haunting style” in my own style that he wanted to  use as the album cover for his  new album, the rest is now history, this is the outcome.

A wonderful project that I am so honored, grateful and thankful beyond words that Nu-San wanted my art to illustrate his music. I love music and love to support music artists with my art. I always wanted to create an artwork that would be illustrating a music album as the  “Cover ” this is a wish come true for me and for Nu-San as he has multiple albums in his discography but they are CD version, this is his first Album produced as a Vinyl record and CD.

This project and watercolor painting is also included in my Collection  “ART FOR MUSIC” a series of artworks created and inspired by music artists and collaborations.

Original Watercolor Painting by ©CarolinaRusso – Photo ©Nu-San

My Original painting: is a watercolor and ink portrait in my signature style with a hint of Gothic and a light feeling of darkness reflecting in the light tones of colors. Nu-San asked me to include ravens birds, a graveyard scene, a castle and gave me the freedom to create and develop the idea. I enjoyed painting this atmospheric portrait while listening to his music to be able to deliver the spirit of  Nu-San in my creation. We are very happy about how the painting turned out and now to see the Album as finished product is a great joy! The Original Painting is owned by Nu-San and beautifully framed and displayed in his home! I think it looks beautiful,  the painting is now available as Limited Edition Fine Art Prints signed by me!

This is the result of another great collaboration and very unique custom commission. I am happy that one year later I can finally talk and reveal more  about this beautiful project. During the month of November 2017, I was contacted by Electronic Music Composer  Sandy Bain aka “Nu-San” from Scotland, UK.  Nu-San is a dear friend he loves my art and already own some of my work. One year ago when Nu-San contacted me he was working on his new album and had an idea. He asked me to create an “Original Painting” inspired by a “Gothic haunting style” in my own style that he wanted to use as the album cover for his coming soon new album with the title “Nu Nostalgia”.  Nu-San still working on some of the final tracks and will release the album sometimes soon. As you can see the image of my painting have a huge watermark on it for ©Copyright reasons since the album isn’t released yet.  I will share more in the near future!

This is a wonderful project!
And I am so honored and grateful beyond words that Nu-San wants my Art to illustrate his music. I love music and love to support music artists with my art. I always wanted to create an artwork that would be illustrating a music album as the “Cover”  I am so happy that this wish is coming true and would be tangible soon. Nu-San discography includes other beautiful albums but this one is the first that would be made in “Vinyl” and it is a dream coming true for Nu-San. We are happy to share this achievement it is special. Thank you again Sandy for this great collaboration!

This is one of the photos of  “Nu-San” that inspired my Portrait for the new album cover, you can see his face in my painting!

My painting is a watercolor and ink portrait in my signature style it has a hint of Gothic and a feeling of darkness.

New Release! Watercolor Painting “All Is Not Lost” – Tribute Series

Not All Is Lost – Watercolor, Ink Painting ©Carolina Russo  – Painting #2 Scott Hutchison Tribute Series

NEW PAINTING RELEASE!

Today post is to Officially Release my new watercolor painting
” ALL IS NOT LOST”

Limited Edition Fine Art Prints – Edition of #60 Prints

I am very happy today to finally be able to reveal and officially release my new painting. The Original was just delivered to its new home. The painting was a Commission, requested by a dear friend and a Fan of Scott Hutchison. I was asked by Mick to create a second tribute painting dedicated to Scott Hutchison but in a different way. Mick had a starting idea and gave me the freedom to develop the idea artistically creating my vision and work following my inspirations.
This is my second painting dedicated to Scott Hutchison after my Tribute Portrait released 20 June, 2018.

Scott-Hutchison – Photo by Ross Gilmore/Redferns

I am sure you remember but for who is new, my #1 painting is the “Tribute Portrait dedicated to Scottish music artist “Scott Hutchison”  a very emotional piece created In Loving Memory of Scott (20/11/81 – 10/5/18) R.I.P
Scott Hutchison was a wonderful music artist founding and primary songwriter of indie rock band Frightened Rabbit   The first painting is my humble contribution honoring Scott soul and to  raise awareness on a very important issue right now in Scotland and in the World. Mental Health and suicide prevention. Scott Hutchison sadly and suddenly left our world last May 10, 2018  at age of 36. Struggling with depression”.

My New Release is the painting #2 title “All Is Not Lost” each of my two paintings has strong meanings, including very emotional elements, familiar to whom followed Scott life and music. This painting also have a double meaning and very personal to me because is related to my own life. (I will probably explain in the future}. The first painting, is the Tribute to Scott and his wonderful soul that is alive and will shine to us forever. The painting carries a message of “Legacy”. My second painting is dedicated to who is left, family, friends, fans and carries a message of “Hope”. Please highly  advise you to read my painting meaning to fully understand it especially if you’re struggling with your emotions.

Painting Meaning: My painting is an emotional piece that carries messages of Hope. There are a lots of different emotions into this creation. The title “All Is Not Lost” gives an indirect Tribute to Scott Hutchison, these are his words and I want these words to resonate within all of us. The view of Scotland “Port Edgar”, such a beautiful and peaceful view and now with a strong reminder. The girl standing in the water is touched by the blowing wind, she is a soul that represents who is left, she is all of us. She is looking still and fearless to the horizon for answers and looking to the future. She also represents “Hope” and “Life”, that “All Is Not Lost”. We have to keep going onward! And find the answers inside our self! Next to her, emerging from the water, there is the FR double cross, that represents Scott presence and that he would be always there in our heart, with family, friends, fans.

Note: My first painting is a Tribute to Scott, this is my second painting as follows and legacy to the first is a Tribute to who Scott left his legacy.

At this moment I have created two paintings that are a perfect match to one another, they complete each other beautifully as the feelings of the meaningful messages. I have used the same color palette and gold ink as enhancement touches in the #1 painting on the double cross and in #2 painting on the girl hair moved by the wind. I love both paintings dearly. I loved each minute and hours spent painting such emotional pieces. They looks beautiful on a wall together. I was thinking maybe to create a third painting and close the “Scott Hutchison Tribute Series as a Trilogy”. So far we have two messages: Legacy and Hope I am thinking at the third message. For now it’s only an idea, let’s see what you all think and if will come true!

My Message to whom will get this print: Thank you once again!  I hope that you love this second painting as much as I do and I hope that it will speak to you and reach your heart and soul deeply. You’re not alone, do not despair, keep going onward, “All Is Not Lost” we still have hope – Carolina

  • When the painting was delivered to Mick, I had one of the most beautiful and heartfelt feedback message sent me on Facebook. I am so thankful, grateful and for the given opportunity to create this piece and I am humbled that my art was heart-felt so deeply, from someone who loves Scott so much is more than I could ever imagine. I love to share this beautiful feedback message with you:
Alba Mick to Carolina Russo  September 25 at 12:01 PM
I have received the most Amazing Painting today from Carolina Russo.

Below is part of my message to Carolina Russo after seeing it. I feel this gives the best description on how seeing it made me feel.

Dear Carolina,
I am physically shaking with emotion. I am so overwhelmed, I am struggling to write. You have created a masterpiece. It is so beautiful. The Image in the water of the double cross, the bridge, the way she has her feet in the water, the flowing hair with the gold through it. I am blown away. It has so much depth and emotion.
You have taken a very simple idea and made it in to not just a work of art, but a real masterpiece. My heart lurched when i seen it. words cannot describe the joy i am feeling. I cannot believe you have created this beautiful piece.
I do not think there are enough words in the english language to express the way I feel. My mind is blown. You are a real genius. I feel it is one of the best paintings not only of yours, but that I have ever seen.
My gratitude to you Carolina Russo, Thank you seems so insufficient to express how I feel. Reading your hand written letter with the Meaning and the painting’s title “All is Not Lost”. Thank you so much.
