Art For Music – Nu-San – Video Release! Song “Come With Me” (Single)

Nu Nostalgia – Album Cover as Sleepmat – Painting by ©CarolinaRusso – Photo Credit ©Nu-San

ART FOR MUSIC!

My Collaboration with music artist Nu-San and Coming Soon Album Release!

Today post is an update for this interesting project and collaboration. Who follow me maybe remember my older post. Recently I had welcomed new followers to my Blog and this post is an update on this on going project and collaboration.

I have collaborated with music artist  Nu-San and I was commissioned to create a watercolor painting as the Cover for his Coming Soon New Album             “Nu Nostalgia” today we are celebrating the launch and release of the Video of Nu-San Single “Come With Me” a beautiful and moving song included in the album. I like to share it with you while we’re looking forward to the Album release!

Nu-San yesterday released the video of the Single “Come With Me” you can watch it here:

 

“NU NOSTALGIA” Album Cover – Original Watercolor Painting

Nu Nostalgia – Album Cover My Original Watercolor Painting by ©CarolinaRusso


About Nu Nostalgia Album Cover Painting

This is a bigger painting than my usual size,  is a custom artwork  requested in a specific size which is 12 x 24 inches. This is the result of another great collaboration and very unique custom commission. I am happy that one year later I can finally talk and reveal more  about this beautiful project. During the month of November 2017, I was contacted by Electronic Music Composer  Sandy Bain aka “Nu-San” from Scotland, UK.  Nu-San is a dear friend he loves my art and already own some of my work. One year ago when Nu-San contacted me he was working on his new album and had an idea. He asked me to create an “Original Painting” inspired by a “Gothic haunting style” in my own style that he wanted to use as the album cover for his coming soon new album with the title “Nu Nostalgia”.  Nu-San still working on some of the final tracks and will release the album sometimes soon. As you can see the image of my painting have a huge watermark on it for ©Copyright reasons since the album isn’t released yet.  I will share more in the near future!

This is a wonderful project!
And I am so honored and grateful beyond words that Nu-San wants my Art to illustrate his music. I love music and love to support music artists with my art. I always wanted to create an artwork that would be illustrating a music album as the “Cover”  I am so happy that this wish is coming true and would be tangible soon. Nu-San discography includes other beautiful albums but this one is the first that would be made in “Vinyl” and it is a dream coming true for Nu-San. We are happy to share this achievement it is special. Thank you again Sandy for this great collaboration!

This project and watercolor painting is also part of my Collection Series, check my Gallery  “ART FOR MUSIC” a series of artworks inspired by music artists reflecting my passion for music.

Nu-San

Nu-San is a solo project and electronic music producer and composer from Scotland, UK.
He has composed original chill out and dance tracks and creates  unique haunting sounds and techno music, that’s the way I can best describe the sound of his music.  I can’t wait to listen what he has created for the new coming album!

This is one of the photos of  “Nu-San” that inspired my Portrait for the new album cover, you can see his face in my painting!

My painting is a watercolor and ink portrait in my signature style it has a hint of Gothic and a feeling of darkness. Nu-San asked me to include in the painting ravens birds, a graveyard scene, a castle and gave me the freedom to create. I enjoyed painting this atmospheric portrait not in a classic and common “Gothic Style” but revised in my own style.  We are very happy about how the painting turned out and we can’t wait to see it as a Vinyl.

New Release! Watercolor Painting “All Is Not Lost” – Tribute Series

Not All Is Lost – Watercolor, Ink Painting ©Carolina Russo  – Painting #2 Scott Hutchison Tribute Series

NEW PAINTING RELEASE!

Today post is to Officially Release my new watercolor painting
” ALL IS NOT LOST”

Limited Edition Fine Art Prints – Edition of #60 Prints

I am very happy today to finally be able to reveal and officially release my new painting. The Original was just delivered to its new home. The painting was a Commission, requested by a dear friend and a Fan of Scott Hutchison. I was asked by Mick to create a second tribute painting dedicated to Scott Hutchison but in a different way. Mick had a starting idea and gave me the freedom to develop the idea artistically creating my vision and work following my inspirations.
This is my second painting dedicated to Scott Hutchison after my Tribute Portrait released 20 June, 2018.

Scott-Hutchison – Photo by Ross Gilmore/Redferns

I am sure you remember but for who is new, my #1 painting is the “Tribute Portrait dedicated to Scottish music artist “Scott Hutchison”  a very emotional piece 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   The first painting is my humble contribution honoring Scott soul and to  raise awareness on a very important issue right now in Scotland and in the World. Mental Health and suicide prevention. Scott Hutchison sadly and suddenly left our world last May 10, 2018  at age of 36. Struggling with depression”.

My New Release is the painting #2 title “All Is Not Lost” each of my two paintings has strong meanings, including very emotional elements, familiar to whom followed Scott life and music. This painting also have a double meaning and very personal to me because is related to my own life. (I will probably explain in the future}. The first painting, is the Tribute to Scott and his wonderful soul that is alive and will shine to us forever. The painting carries a message of “Legacy”. My second painting is dedicated to who is left, family, friends, fans and carries a message of “Hope”. Please highly  advise you to read my painting meaning to fully understand it especially if you’re struggling with your emotions.

Painting Meaning: My painting is an emotional piece that carries messages of Hope. There are a lots of different emotions into this creation. The title “All Is Not Lost” gives an indirect Tribute to Scott Hutchison, these are his words and I want these words to resonate within all of us. The view of Scotland “Port Edgar”, such a beautiful and peaceful view and now with a strong reminder. The girl standing in the water is touched by the blowing wind, she is a soul that represents who is left, she is all of us. She is looking still and fearless to the horizon for answers and looking to the future. She also represents “Hope” and “Life”, that “All Is Not Lost”. We have to keep going onward! And find the answers inside our self! Next to her, emerging from the water, there is the FR double cross, that represents Scott presence and that he would be always there in our heart, with family, friends, fans.

Note: My first painting is a Tribute to Scott, this is my second painting as follows and legacy to the first is a Tribute to who Scott left his legacy.

At this moment I have created two paintings that are a perfect match to one another, they complete each other beautifully as the feelings of the meaningful messages. I have used the same color palette and gold ink as enhancement touches in the #1 painting on the double cross and in #2 painting on the girl hair moved by the wind. I love both paintings dearly. I loved each minute and hours spent painting such emotional pieces. They looks beautiful on a wall together. I was thinking maybe to create a third painting and close the “Scott Hutchison Tribute Series as a Trilogy”. So far we have two messages: Legacy and Hope I am thinking at the third message. For now it’s only an idea, let’s see what you all think and if will come true!

My Message to whom will get this print: Thank you once again!  I hope that you love this second painting as much as I do and I hope that it will speak to you and reach your heart and soul deeply. You’re not alone, do not despair, keep going onward, “All Is Not Lost” we still have hope – Carolina

  • When the painting was delivered to Mick, I had one of the most beautiful and heartfelt feedback message sent me on Facebook. I am so thankful, grateful and for the given opportunity to create this piece and I am humbled that my art was heart-felt so deeply, from someone who loves Scott so much is more than I could ever imagine. I love to share this beautiful feedback message with you:
Alba Mick to Carolina Russo  September 25 at 12:01 PM
I have received the most Amazing Painting today from Carolina Russo.

Carolina Russo will have an Official release of this painting soon!!
Below is part of my message to Carolina Russo after seeing it. I feel this gives the best description on how seeing it made me feel.

Dear Carolina,
I am physically shaking with emotion. I am so overwhelmed, I am struggling to write. You have created a masterpiece. It is so beautiful. The Image in the water of the double cross, the bridge, the way she has her feet in the water, the flowing hair with the gold through it. I am blown away. It has so much depth and emotion.
You have taken a very simple idea and made it in to not just a work of art, but a real masterpiece. My heart lurched when i seen it. words cannot describe the joy i am feeling. I cannot believe you have created this beautiful piece.
I do not think there are enough words in the english language to express the way I feel. My mind is blown. You are a real genius. I feel it is one of the best paintings not only of yours, but that I have ever seen.
My gratitude to you Carolina Russo, Thank you seems so insufficient to express how I feel. Reading your hand written letter with the Meaning and the painting’s title “All is Not Lost”. Thank you so much.
Alba Mick
Michael S.
