Hello everyone,

I am so sorry I haven’t written a Blog post in a pretty long time!
Life events kept me busy, how the Summer is going?
I hope it find you all well!

I want to thank to all the new followers that  came to this Blog lately and decided to follow my journey, thank you so much!
I hope that you enjoy my art in all the different ways I like to express my creativity. At this moment I am also redesigning the look of this Blog, soon you will see it with a new look and layout. In addition will have included a new section with my own new “Shop” where you can purchase my Art and Limited Edition Prints directly and exclusively here only. These are last days that My Etsy shop is running! I will not sell anymore over there, when my new Shop is up everything is done here! 🙂

Scott Hutchison Tribute – Watercolor Painting ©CarolinaRusso

I have been very busy during the months of June and July with several interesting projects.  I have created the Tribute painting of Scottish music artist Scott Hutchison that sadly and unexpectedly left this world last May. I had a wonderful response from all the loving fans to the band Frightened Rabbit when I have released the painting available in Limited Edition Prints.  I thank them all! For who missed my previous posts about this, here there is a little recap and excerpt from one of my posts.

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 from Scotland 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 already did, and who will 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)”.

I loved the beautiful response of the amazing fans and they kept me really busy preparing all the Prints for their orders. I had wonderful feedbacks and  I am happy that through my painting I am able to relief a little of the sadness and pain in so many hearts and keep up the strong legacy that Scott left here.

All this kept me very busy. This year I had no time to participate to “The World Watercolor Month”  sorry Charlie doodlewash I was only able to post few paintings during July but it’s all good, The past two years I have participated and completed the challenge to paint daily for 31 days and I loved it, because gave me the opportunity to create new collections of paintings, this is a great way to create new material for your portfolio using a challenge for inspiration, especially for new artists or beginners this is an advice I can give to whom is in need of inspiration to create, follow a challenge and make it yours.

But I also have a nice news, because during July I have submitted few paintings on Instagram to the Pentalic365 challenge and I am so honored to be the Winner for the month of July see their post Pentalic365

❤ ❤ During the past months I lost two wonderful pets they went over the rainbow bridge, I was very sad to loose Rocky a rescued Chihuahua and my loved Yumi a wonderful and amazing rescued Possum!

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. I will probably consider a 2nd prints edition and release only if there is demand, or they will not be printed again and there would be only sixty Fine Art signed and numbered Prints of my Scott painting Tribute Portrait in the World! Grab yours before is too late!

– Blue Eyed Cat  –
Day #18 World Watercolor Month

 

This is Day #18/31 of the World Watercolor Month  today I painted this lovely blue-eyed cat!  Inspired by my beautiful cat “Dolly” that I had at my parents house for 13 years while growing up in Italy. We all loved her very much, she was the sweetest cat ever and gave us beautiful unforgettable moments filled with lots of love. She left this world a little more than 15 years ago. I miss her…today was the first time I painted her and when I look at those beautiful blue eyes she is alive! This painting is made in loving memory of Dolly ❤
