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!

This painting is available in Limited Edition Fine Art Signed Prints if anyone is interested just Contact me directly ❤

Thank You!
