Weekly Photo Challenge: “I’d Rather Be…” Creating

Forest Goddess – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Today weekly photo challenge for  The Daily Post  theme  is ““I’d Rather Be…” and my answer is Creating!

I love to create my art and express my creativity in many different ways, I am a full-time artist and I love what I do. For me there is not much of “I’d rather be” because I try to create art every day! I am a watercolor painter, an illustrator and jewelry designer, I love photography and digital photo manipulations. I also like to write poems, haiku and short stories.  

Day #15: Witch _ Mysterious

 

My watercolor painting series are all available in Limited Edition Signed Fine Art Prints.

Day #2 Goblin Divided – Supplies

This is me on the beach in action with my camera trying to capture the moment…

This is one of my photos I love the ocean, sunsets and stormy skies

I love to create photo manipulations and I have created a Collection titled “When Nature Meets Humans” this Portrait title is “Proud” I like the Concept to mix Nature with Humans and create a unique One of a kind Digital Portraits. This is my evolving  idea and concept to combining the beauty of Nature with Humans telling a story in the form of Visual-Art, combining and blending a number of different photos in one unique portrait. Each photo has a meaning that tell the Portrait story. You can see more of this collection here and in this Gallery.

Nature is my biggest inspiration in everything I create…

I also love to create jewelry for  my “Among Nature” Jewelry Collection.
The nature is my greatest inspiration for my Jewelry Designs. I often use found in nature objects hand-picked by me in special places I visit.  All my creations are made using only beautiful natural gemstones, seashells, fossils, woods, bone and crystals which  I combine with precious and semi precious metals.

Sometimes I write when words are whispered to my soul…this is one of my poems

Hands

Artist precious hands,
intensity and love givers.

Hands guided by a heart pulse,
forging and hammering metals,
holding precious stones.

Inspiration from the soul,
happiness  and art givers,
emotions in a motion of senses.

stroking brushes fulfilled with passion,
dripping water on white paper,
splashes of colors take forms.

Ink tears into the unknown
a creation is born.

Poetry – Crystals

 

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz

 

Crystals

translucent surface
of an inner energy

powerful light
radiating rays of depth
in the history of nature

sun reflection and donation
of universal love
for the humanity to hold

a cosmic revelation
sometimes unknown
like puzzle pieces to find
within our soul

awareness will come
with perception and feelings
love is power
light will shine.

Thank You!

Thank You!

Poets For Peace

Peaceful Sunset -

Peaceful Sunset © Carolina Russo

This is my submission for #PoetsForPeace

PEACE

a precious word I have been thought
from the day I was born

a word made of many words
a word made of many colors
a word made of many thoughts

a word to be shared

a word that rhyme with love
and acceptance

find harmony inside yourself
to walk peacefully during your life path
with enlightenment

love yourself to love one another
open your mind to freedom
and maintain it possible in this world.

©Carolina Russo
