A Spectacular Butterfly Visit…

Painted Lady Butterfly – Watercolor Painting ©CarolinaRusso

These days here in Southern California we have so many beautiful small “Painted Lady Butterflies” flying everywhere!
It is so wonderful to watch, they are everywhere flying fast, I heard that they are millions and are migrating coming from Mexico passing  here going to their destination in Northern California.

This year we had lots of rain in the past weeks more than our usual and this is the cause while the butterflies are here they had more food in this location and slowed their pace for their migration. It is the first time that I see something like this and so many joyful little beauties! In my photo above you can see all the lovely colors isn’t she wonderful? A nature masterpiece and she seems big, but actually these butterflies are very small like one inch tall while close wings and a two inches wings span. At first I thought that they were baby Monarch because the similarity in the orange  color and design when the wings are open but actually they are “Painted Lady” I love butterflies of any kind they are magical creatures so precious and beautiful! I also have one tattooed on my foot. They have wonderful symbolic meanings of change and transformation, beauty, joy and cycle changes in life.

Today I wanted to paint one to remember this magical event and special moment witnessing the 2019 butterflies migration.  I  also wanted to honor the little one you see standing on the rock in my photos, she is not alive anymore ♥️ late last night I found her inside the house on a screen door and gently I had her grip to my finger so that I could bring her outside and let her free, she did walked on my finger and walked in my palm where she decided to spread her wings wide open like to show me all her beauty. I was fascinated to see her color and she closed her wings while standing in my hand…I didn’t know but that was her last breath 😥 I found her this morning like this standing still like when I left her in the garden. I guess if they are migrating she must’ve been exhausted so I kept it and I will treasure her! I hope to find a good way to preserve her ♥️

My mini painting is a little Tribute in appreciation of the universal love and wonderful wildlife and to this lovely Painted Lady that decided to rest and stay in peace forever with me ❤

New Painting – Princess Cordelia – #drawitinyourstyle Challenge #1

Draw It In Your Style Challenge

Princess Cordelia – Watercolor ink painting ©CarolinaRusso

This month I have participated to a very inspiring painting challenge hosted on Instagram by Artist Annie Stegg Gerard
she challenged us posting her first 2019 oil painting “Princess Cordelia” for a “Draw It Your Style Challenge!” To enter we had to draw Cordelia in our own style being free to change anything we wanted. Annie’s painting is stunning just as it is all her Art.  Ethereal, fantastic and dreamy. I was so enchanted by this beautiful painting it gave me feelings of peace, serenity and love for animals and nature very inspiring to me that of course I didn’t think twice I wanted to recreate it in my own signature style. I loved to paint her and I like the outcome.

Princess Cordelia – Oil Painting by Artist ©Annie Stegg Gerard

Annie’s art world is….
Inspired by nature, folklore and mythology, her work evokes emotion and imagination in the viewer.  Annie has a special love for the 18h century Rococo painters who have had a large influence on her own method. She finds inspiration in their imagination, and the dreamlike palette and lively brushwork that combine to create a wonderful atmosphere of enchantment.” I suggest you to visit her website at Gallery Gerard

I hope that you like how I have recreated mine in watercolors and ink and please leave me comments let me know your impressions and feelings about it! I really would like to know!

I have to tell you that it was a bit intimidating at first, because Annie is an amazing Artist some of her clients just to name a few are in the movie and gaming industry Warner Bros, Disney, Dreamworks and more… but Annie has been so lovely and commented on my work in progress and again when I posted on Instagram the finished painting, she said that it is beautiful and that means so much to me. What do you think?
