New Release! Scott Hutchison “Tribute Portrait”

 

Scott Hutchison Tribute – Watercolor Painting ©CarolinaRusso

Hello everyone,

Today post is to Officially Release my new watercolor painting!

My painting it is a Tribute Portrait dedicated to Scottish music artist “Scott Hutchison”  this is a very emotional painting 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

This painting is my humble contribution to honor Scott soul and to raise awareness on Mental Health and suicide prevention. Scott Hutchison left our world last May 10, 2018  at age of 36. Struggling with the demons of depression. He never hid his suffering, but translated his feelings using his alienation in words creating songs that touched the heart of many around the world. He always reassured fans who reached to him about their problems that “there’s always hope”.

❤❤❤
I will Donate a portion of the proceeds of my Limited Edition Prints in “Scott Memory” to UK  SAMH  “Scottish Association for Mental Health”.
Thank you so much in advance to anyone that decide to purchase one of these unique prints, your support means a lot and can help to give “Tiny changes while here on Earth (
Scott words)”.

My Painting Meaning: My Painting portrays Scott surrounded by a dark cloud but half way out, doing what he loved, singing to the heart of all that connected to his songs and music . The darkness has been part of his life, sadly until the end of his days. The darkness is something that he silently tried to fight in his own way. The double cross, is a symbol that Scott created, it is one of his drawings,  that recognize the band. I wanted to paint the double cross in gold because in my painting I wanted it to symbolize Scott wonderful soul that is alive and will shine to us forever.

My Message to whom will get this print: Thank you for loving it! I hope that my painting will “Keep Yourself Warm (Scott words)“, will bring you hope, strength and love during your journey, never feel alone, there is always a light in the dark, share your feelings and always  “Hug Your Loved Ones (Scott words)” –  Carolina

If you love this painting, please consider to Pre-Order your Print soon!
There are only 60 Prints available for this first and maybe only Edition.
I accept Pre-Orders until last print is available, after prints are sold out, this 1st release is closed.

Love – Watercolor Painting by ©CarolinaRusso


Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Today post is to release my new watercolor painting!  The title of my painting  is “Love” I was inspired to paint it a couple of days ago, thinking at a celebration of universal love not just at what is the commercial “Valentine’s Day” but thinking at something more deep and profound than that.

Time ago I wrote a quote that say:

Love is the light at the center of everything”  – © CR

 

This quote is what really inspired my painting, I hope that you all like it and and that you know inside your soul what love is.

NEW 1st RELEASE!!!

©YLIA ADVENTURES  Fine Art Prints

 

1st Release of my Collectible InkTober Series is now available in  Limited Edition!
From October 1st until the 31st  I have been very busy and focused on creating non-stop and drawing daily, because I joined the Worldwide InkTober event.
This month has been amazing and crazy at the same time, is not easy to commit to a challenge like this, there is so much behind it, but I enjoyed every moment.  I am proud that I was able to follow my path and complete the challenge with my 31 drawings in 31 days. These drawings are very detailed and take quite long time to have one finished. They are not the kind of sketches made in 20 minutes.  The result and outcome of my intense work is a lovely creation. My character ©Ylia, that was born on October 1st 2016. I developed Ylia drawing after drawing while following the official 2016 InkTober  prompt list. Each drawing illustrate a story based on the daily prompt words. I also wrote  my own “Quotes” I wanted to turn each drawing in a positive message to share with the world. I want to thank everyone that followed this challenge and shared my journey. Thank you so much for all messages and the kind words of encouragement that I received every day, that was a huge help to keep me going! I have been receiving emails asking if after the Inktober my drawings would be available for sale. I then decided for now to launch this 1st exclusive Collectors Release of Fine Art Prints.

Today November 5, 2016  ©YLIA ADVENTURES  Fine Art Prints are available in  Limited Edition!
This is the launch of the Limited Edition Collectible Series!
