Happy Father’s Day! My Dad Art!

View of Italy – Oil Painting by Artist @Edoardo Russo

Happy Father’s Day! ❤️

Today post is about one of the many beautiful oil paintings created by my Dad, the number one Artist in my life.  I grow up exposed to his beautiful art and creativity and I am so thankful for it! Today here in USA is Father’s Day but not in Italy where my Dad and Mom are still living! ❤️ I wanted to share this small oval painting that I have here with me part of a series of Italian landscape views. I love to share this as a testimony of his art and honored him today! His painting style range from small sizes like this one to large canvas. My dad started painting at very early age on his own he was a child and at 11 years old he was already painting beautifully like an adult experienced oil painter artist. Through his life he painted beautiful floral compositions, landscapes, seascapes amazing view of the world and of Italy, nonetheless he explored many different art styles, from Impressionism to Surrealism and Modern, Sacred his variety took him creating with an open mind on creativity, the techniques, the color palette used in any painting he made are beautiful! Prize winner on several Group Exhibits in Italy during late 70s – 80s his paintings also were sold  by galleries and imported around Europe and from what I remember here in US. Right now he loves to see what I am creating, he still painting not much like years ago, but his mind would be always creative and artistic. Thank you for your art Papa’! ❤

 

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there! ❤

Thank You!

#DoodlewashDinner at the Beach

Seashore - Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Seashore – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Today to join Charlie for our “Doodlewash Dinner” I decided to bring the idea of the place where we will have our dinner! 😉
And I bring the beach to you! A dinner with a front view of the blue ocean…isn’t it great?

Sorry no food from me today. I was thinking what to paint and since my time today is not much I decided that was a good idea to include the idea of a place and what is better than an ocean view. What do you think?

I like to share this watercolor painting a seascape that I made some time ago. I have the original here framed on the wall. I kept this one for myself and it is just in front of me on my desk! I love to look at it every day when I am seat at my computer. I purposely placed it there a bit high than my 24″ screen, because I feel that is a relaxing view to rest my eyes on it, the color palette is very delicate I feel peace when I look at it. I wanted to have an imaginary  open window on the ocean inside the room.

I also wanted one of my painting to be the inspirational motivator for my daily artworks and doodlewashes  or inspirer for other watercolor paintings it is a constant reminder to be creative and enjoy what I do. It is actually a great idea to try, surround yourself from your beautiful creations or choose a single one to focus on it, enjoy them every day and let them inspire you for more. ❤

Details about my doodlewash:
I used a basic watercolor palette Artist’s Loft Fundamental watercolor pan set  this pan set is considered for beginners but I enjoy use it for the variety of colors. The paper used is a Watercolor Cold Press  pad 140 lb size 11 x 15 inches.

With this I am  joining  Charlie at doodlewash  for a #DoodlewashDinner You are welcome to join with your doodlewash!

National Tell A Story Day

 

Peaceful

Peaceful – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Deep Water

Surrounded by the blue deepest water. The reflections of floating emotions, loaded the mind and body in a fearless state.Tranquillity and silence flying through the broken branches of a life experience, were glowing under the warm sunlight.
Suddenly warm rain drops of happiness joined the deep water becoming one.

Emotions

stormy_sky Emotions

Emotions

emotions chained
to words untold
floating like cluster clouds
in a sky of darkness and light

the storm was approaching
lighting were striking the heart
like stones breaking glasses

like in a lost dance over fire
following the song of my thoughts
holding a flower to protect

a desperate search for
a peaceful and silent shelter to rest

pieces of me were left there
in the dark with a white flower to hold
looking for a raising sun…

Peace

Tramonto1

PEACE

a precious word I have been thought
from the day I was born

a word made of many words
a word made of many colors
a word made of many thoughts

a word to be shared

a word that rhyme with love
and acceptance

find harmony inside yourself
to walk peacefully during your life path
with enlightenment

love yourself to love one another
open your mind to freedom
and mantain it possible in this world.
