Today I am very happy  to announce that my 5.7.5 Haiku New Year illustrated with one of my watercolor paintings is now Published on Spillwords Press and is part of the new project “Reading Sunday” I am so honored and happy to see two of my creations published at the same time.

I am honored to be listed as one of their contributor writers, you can read more of my published poetry on Spillwords/Author/Carolina Russo

I haven’t written new poetry in a while, this is the first Haiku published this year, I wrote it time ago.
I only write when I feel the words whispered to my soul, it’s just the beginning of this year, more will come.

A special thank you to the Editor for publish and share my writings.

Please give a visit to  Spillwords and check it out is a very interesting literary press!

 

I wish you all a lovely Sunday!

Inktober 2017 – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 23: Coffin – Juicy

– Coffin – Juicy –

Day #23 Coffin – Juicy


Day #23: Double challenge #Drawlloweentober   

Prompts:
> MabsDrawlloweenClub: Coffin
> Inktober: Juicy

This painting is inspired by the prompt Coffin and try to make it less creepy and more juicy! I decided to paint again my big eyes style Ms. Wednesday Addams, but this time she is doing meditation peacefully sit on a “Coffin” just to stay in the Halloween spirit… Namaste 🕉  btw I don’t think I ever seen the Addams family doing meditation especially Wednesday so my interpretation it is something different! 😉

Day #19: Creepy Twins – Cloud

 

Day #19: Double challenge #Drawlloweentober   

Prompts:
> MabsDrawlloweenClub: Creepy Twins
> Inktober: Cloud

Today painting of my Creepy Twins is not so creepy and  is inspired by artist  @mabgraves beautiful Twins post on her Instagram!
I wanted to give a more deep meaning to my painting dedicating my Twins to all the girls that have been victims of life events, that had them wearing an invisible mask facing fears and unable to talk openly about it! To all these girls around the world my Twins say:
No one can put you in a corner,  It will come the moment that you will stand up strongly and walk out of that dark tunnel and finally face the light” (Words excerpt from my Poem The Walk by ©CarolinaRusso) I hope to send some courage to all these girls and to find the strength to take down that mask! 💗
