Making Art From Nature Finds

Ink Drawing on Eucalyptus Bark – ©Carolina Russo

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.

Day #27 Little Devil – Climb

Day #27 – This day prompts were Little Devil and Climb. I don’t really like to paint devil’s images, but I made this one more thinking at a horned ethereal creature like a fantasy fairy or game character the color red obviously was supposed to be!

Day #28 Villain – Fall

Day #28 – This is my choice for the prompt Villain my painting is inspired by the Disney movie “Maleficent” and she is Angelina Jolie in her character!

Day# 29 and 30 Broom Ride – Spider

Days #29 and #30 – I had to catchup a day so I decided to combine two days using four promps in one drawing! Prompts are: Broom Ride, United, Spider, Found 🖤Today I wrote a short story for this painting!  “Gilda the mysterious witch in a night during Fall, was seen in the sky at night, she was fast riding her broom happily, after she got reunited with her found friend Spider!” ©CR 🖤♥️

Day #31 Tim Burton – Mask

Day# 31 – This is my “Emily” character from the movie “Corps Bride” honoring Tim Burton with this prompt. I haven’t changed Emily character too much, but she has my style touch! This is last painting of this amazing month of October!
