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!

Help me, help you!

A very special Thank You to dear friend Cyranny for this lovely idea and great Blog post! I am honored to have my Art and Etsy Shop included in her Christmas gifts list for a great , less stressful and comfortable Christmas Shopping from home! Lots of nice things in the Shops listed it worth to check them out! Helping one another to succed is the greatest support you can give! Thank you Cyranny!!! ❤

Cyranny's cove

I don’t like thinking about Christmas too far in advance.

But, a couple of years back, I got caught having to make most of my Christmas shopping very last minute, and I swore to myself “never again!”.

This year, I thought I would do something special. Since I’ve come to know many very talented artists through blogging, I decided I’d try to buy as many gifts as I can from their online shops!

That way, as I explained it to Chéri, we’d have lovely, handmade, unique gifts, coming from all around the world. On the plus side, we wouldn’t have to go through the trouble of fighting other Christmas shoppers at the mall, and we’d encourage wonderfull people to keep creating beautifull art!

So here are some of these incredible bloggers, and the link to their online boutique!

New Release: Esme – Bringing alive a character with a painting! Collaboration with Author MJ Mallon

Esme And The Mirror -Original Watercolor Painting by ©Carolina Russo – Portrait of Esme Inspired by the Book – “The Curse Of Time” #1 Bloodstone by Author MJ Mallon

Today I am happy to post about one of my latest collaboration and commission done during the month of August.
I have collaborated with British Author Marjorie J Mallon,  she is a novel’s writer and  a friend in our community here on WordPress.

She Blogs at MJ Mallon Author!

I always love to write the story behind the scene of  my paintings. A while back I was contacted by MJ, she is one of my lovely long time followers from overseas. She loves my Art and followed my World Watercolor Month Collection, created in July, a challenge featuring 31 paintings in 31 days. MJ was touched by one of my paintings, inspiring the coming idea. Explained in her message to me indicating that her new book Kindle Edition “The Curse Of Time” #1 Bloodstone was close to be launched on August 26, (yes it is already happened!) and that she would’ve loved to collaborate with me, asking if I could create a painting for her. A portrait to illustrate her fiction character “Esme” and a digital image to be able to share it online! The idea was very exciting to me, I love book illustrations and of course, I wanted to create this special portrait.  MJ gave me some interesting details about Esme, and enough was said that I let soon my creativity fly. I prepared a pencil sketch with my vision, MJ approved and I was ready to paint and bring the character alive. What a beautiful opportunity for both of us to collaborate while we are in two different countries, she is in UK and I am in US this is one side of the beauty of Blogging! Great connections can be made opening the doors of possibilities. I Blog from three years now and I had amazing connections and experiences. During this year is happened to me several times to collaborate and I love it.

While having our communications MJ gave me some interesting information and detail about what was important for her to showcase  in my painting.  Esme has long blond hair, the mirror, a face reflection, tears, a pink quartz crystal, a clock, and sunflowers + few more detail that I wont reveal to do not spoil her book! Not much I needed, to let my creativity and vision of Esme taking  shape. I had my vision and MJ loved it! As you can see on my painting I added all the elements she gave me ” Esme, the crystal and  the sunflowers are in foreground painted in a light delicate watercolor color palette that is in  contrast with the images in the dark background, the clock and the mirror that are representing the unknown and the darkness.

I loved to create this intriguing painting which I gave the title “Esme And The Mirror”  Esme is the name of one of the main characters in the book.  MJ mentioned in one of her Blog posts this quote: “The tears in her eyes convey her sadness but the golden hair of the mysterious girl facing her (no spoilers!) is bright and vibrant, suggesting hope.”  What a great message isn’t it? Well my painting represent Light and Darkness, Sadness and Hope.

Thank you so much MJ  for supporting my art with our collaboration and commission! I had the opportunity to create this beautiful inspiring Portrait for you bringing alive your intriguing character Esme and have my Art connected with you and your new book! “The Curse Of Time” #1 Bloodstone to know more about it give MJ a visit on her Blog this is the link to her Book Launch Party Post
