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 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.
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!

Wonderful Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, 90s Shoegaze pop music artist, has organized a Charity auction fundraising for the new UK, Devon’s Deaf Academy project to open on April 2020. Rachel Goswell is personally involved with the Academy and sensitive to the problem of hearing impairment because affect her 9 years old son Jesse. Rachel and her husband Steve Clarke recently formed “The Soft Cavalry” released their debut album which includes the song “Bulletproof” and the interesting and beautiful Video performed by the duo in sign language.
Rachel Goswell expressed her motivations behind the Bulletproof video in a press release: “For a long time now I have wanted to do a video that incorporates BSL (British Sign Language) due to my son being Profoundly Deaf with no hearing. He also has additional needs with CHARGE Syndrome that brings many added complications. I live within two worlds both Hearing and Deaf; and have learned a lot in the last nine years about the many barriers Deaf people can face in our society. One of the main points I was taught very quickly is how music is accessible to Deaf people. Of course music can be felt through vibration but visually I feel so much more could be done to enhance the experience. We made this video with the support of Sign Up BSL to translate ‘Bulletproof’ so that the song flows properly in BSL. Sometimes with signing videos – they can be a literal translation of the words (Sign Supported English) which will make little sense to the Deaf viewer. Our hope is that we have achieved this and also that one day as my son gets older and develops his language skills he will be able to understand this song.”
During the past couple of months since Rachel announced the donation of one of her guitars, numerous bands and artists connected with her. She gathered and will auction off amazing generously donated items from great bands, musicians and creative artists. The auction lots includes unique Music and Art collectibles, memorabilia signed items, screen prints, set lists, shirts, jewelry, signed albums and lots more. Just to name a few, Rachel Goswell donated one of her loved guitars signed by Slowdive members, the band also donated a variety of rare items. A long still growing list of over sixty unique items is ready for the upcoming auction, includes donations from The Cure, Cocteau Twins, Mogwai, The Cult, Low, Ash, My Bloody Valentine and many more.
I am honored that I was able to contribute and donate my art for this great cause, give help for deaf children to have a new beautiful place. I have donated two prints a “One Of A Kind” Limited Edition Fine Art Prints of my recent watercolor paintings a portrait of Robert Smith “THE CURE” and of Frightened Rabbit -Scott Hutchison Tribute. Prints are OOAK Hand Enhanced with gold ink and feature hand written words from favorite songs! Since Rachel shared them on her Instagram I can share them here in preview.

Day #9 Bad Apples12 Days ❤ Wintmas 2018
Prompts: Frost – Bright Snow
Today post is for the Day #9 prompts are Frost and Bright Snow, I’ve created something different for today painting! Instead of using watercolor paper. I’ve painted on a beautiful leaf that I have harvested in the wood. I love to use nature finds in my art. I love to paint on leafs and bark. I painted a frosty snow queen and added gold and silver spark. I am very pleased with this leaf it looks beautiful and is 3D since the leaf isn’t completely flat has a beautiful dimension! I carefully hand pick and chose my leafs to paint on it, I look especially for their shape and natural curves.
❤ The Original leaf is one of a kind and is available for sale upon direct request Contact me for details!

Weekly Photo Challenge! The Daily Post
The theme for this week it is beautiful and inspiring and is “Story” We all can be story tellers in many ways, as an artist I love to tell stories creating my watercolor paintings or through my designs, jewelry creations and photography.
This week “Memories From The Ocean” is the theme of my Story!
The ocean it is a wonderful place where I love to be, often I am lucky to find beautiful nature pieces to use for my Jewelry designs.
Unique one of a kind Keepsake Jewelry “Memories From the Ocean”
Today I am going to share one of my jewelry design and unique creation.
“Memories from the Ocean” Necklace
This beautiful one of a kind necklace is part of a new concept I am launching here.
This concept is about creating unique Keepsake Memories Jewelry with found objects.
I love bringing to life unique jewels created with objects found in our precious nature.
For this necklace I used beautiful founds from the Ocean. Drift wood, fossil seashells, red coral. Pieces of seashells smoothed and shaped from years and years of ocean’s erosion. The uniquely shaped piece of driftwood, was, what inspired me to make this statement necklace right at the moment I found it on a beautiful California beach. I left the wood natural just like I found it, I didn’t want to add any oil or wax because the wind and waves did their beautiful work of natural art.
Whenever I go, I am always looking out for interesting pieces of nature, treasures to keepsake and add to my collection and use them later for my art and creations. This way every design it is One of a Kind and has his own story behind it and I love that!
For this necklace I used Copper wire left natural and not oxidized, so that the time will create the natural patina on it. I have created three hanging pendants with pieces of natural gemstones, Red Coral, Amazonite and Agate, three faceted Crystals, yellow Citrine, Smoky and Clear, a Fossil Seashell piece with a natural hole and an Abalone piece. This combination of pieces is beautiful and the gemstones colors perfectly remind the ocean water. I wrapped the copper wire to the driftwood following the natural curves and holding the pendants. A tan color flat suede adjustable leather cord is the finishing touch for this unique necklace.
All my Jewelry Designs are single pieces created to have a life and standing on their own beautifully in their unique and unexpected combination of natural elements. My work is made as Custom Order can be purchased and Ordered here on this Blog or if is listed on my Etsy Shop.
I also accept custom orders creating a “Keepsake Memories Jewelry” a design piece with your own special memories or found objects in nature, or not I can create your own story. If you are interested in a special piece don’t hesitate to Contact me.
I hope that you enjoyed reading this post and as always I love to read your comments! ❤
Thank you for sharing my Art!
Today I am happy to share one of my latest work. I have been busy with some interesting commissions that I will reveal very soon in my next coming posts.
In the mean time, today I like to share what I have created out of a beautiful nature find, a unique piece of “Eucalyptus Tree Bark” I have found this piece near the tree where it belonged, it did speak to me and I took it. I love the shape is not a flat piece it is curved and is about 13 inches long and 4.5 inches wide in the widest part. This piece is in perfect conditions the grain has a lovely natural white patina. I did nothing to it than just passing a soft cloth to brush off eventual dust. Sorry I haven’t taken a photo of the natural bark before drawing, I guess I was too excited and inspired to start working on it.
What turned out is a mysterious face and ethereal portrait, created with only a black and a white Ink pens. I loved and enjoyed drawing this piece very much. Following the natural grain of the wood and letting the curves lead my drawing allowing this face to come alive and out to us. It is a one of a kind piece, I don’t have a title yet but you all can help me to find one, you can tell me in the comments what do you see in her expression? What she is telling you? Your help is very much appreciated and together we can find a title for her.
Nature is a great source of inspiration in many ways and especially in Art because it stimulates your creativity helping you to relax and feel grounded. When you are able to feel connected with the earth, you are and feel centered and balanced letting go negativity no matter what’s going on around you. I love nature in all the aspects and benefits it give us. I based my life on nature and natural remedies to take care myself health wise and successfully. I enjoy always time spent outdoor it is so precious walking in the wood or enjoying a walk on the shore near the ocean, I like hiking and exploring places in appreciation of what often we take for granted.
Nature is precious and inspire me in many ways and in all the mediums I work with. I am always on the look out to find interesting things that I can create with. I also have based my whole Jewelry Collection on nature. I am so happy when I can find interesting and inspiring pieces as gift of nature to collect and create with.
I love leaves, tree bark, gemstones, fossils, sea shells, driftwood, flowers, branches and more. I love to salvage these precious finds and give them a new life and purpose through my art.
Details about my drawing: Ink drawing supplies used: ink pens MicronBlack ink #03 and #05, UniBall Signo Angelic Colour White pen, Eucalyptus Tree Bark approx. size 13 × 4.5 inches.

I loved to create Ylia, she is a futuristic kind of superhero- warrior with a nod to the past, she is also a Messenger of “Love and Peace” most of my drawings were accompanied by quotes or Haiku that I wrote. Maybe one day I will publish an illustrated book of @Ylia Adventures! We will see what the future brings! For now I just got the InkTober 2017 “Official Prompt list” I don’t know yet what I would be creating, I need to brainstorm! This challenge is open to anyone that love sketching with ink pens but for the #worldwatercolorgroup we are free to add a dash of watercolor, I hope that someone of you will join me this year, you don’t have to be drawing every day if you can’t, you can do a drawing every other day, or every few days, or one entry a week! Doesn’t has to be a complicate drawing, it will help you to develop a habit and skills.
Here is the Story of this event: Illustrator Jake Parker is the creator of this great challenge and initiative started in October 2009. Jake created InkTober as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year. Here are the 2017 Official Rules:
I am very excited this year to join Jake once again and participate to this great challenge with artists all over the world! Sharing on the Blog and on Instagram @carolinarussoart I really would love to create all the 31 ink drawings but I think I wont have much time this year, because I would be participating also to another challenge event (I will tell you about this later on!) So I will pick all the prompts that inspire me to produce great drawings.

I responded to her comment: “Thank you very much in a way I am sure you can relate with it! You’re a writer I could’have portrait you with castle and dragon 😉 Thank you for stopping by my Blog and I love your comment!” ❤
The comments are what did bring us closer together and the beautiful surprise of her decision to custom order to me this painting. A Fantasy Portrait representing her with her cat and what she love to write about it in her fantasy stories. So a Dragon and a Castle were a must to paint! As part of my creative process we started to exchange emails and talk about her own idea and my vision of the painting and here there is the beautiful and interesting outcome! Alecia purchased the Original Watercolor Painting and a digital image to use on her Blog. At this moment her painting is in the hands of the postal service, is in transit going overseas all the way to beautiful New Zealand!
