Weekly Photo Challenge: “I’d Rather Be…” Creating

Forest Goddess – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Today weekly photo challenge for  The Daily Post  theme  is ““I’d Rather Be…” and my answer is Creating!

I love to create my art and express my creativity in many different ways, I am a full-time artist and I love what I do. For me there is not much of “I’d rather be” because I try to create art every day! I am a watercolor painter, an illustrator and jewelry designer, I love photography and digital photo manipulations. I also like to write poems, haiku and short stories.  

Day #15: Witch _ Mysterious

 

My watercolor painting series are all available in Limited Edition Signed Fine Art Prints.

Day #2 Goblin Divided – Supplies

This is me on the beach in action with my camera trying to capture the moment…

This is one of my photos I love the ocean, sunsets and stormy skies

I love to create photo manipulations and I have created a Collection titled “When Nature Meets Humans” this Portrait title is “Proud” I like the Concept to mix Nature with Humans and create a unique One of a kind Digital Portraits. This is my evolving  idea and concept to combining the beauty of Nature with Humans telling a story in the form of Visual-Art, combining and blending a number of different photos in one unique portrait. Each photo has a meaning that tell the Portrait story. You can see more of this collection here and in this Gallery.

Nature is my biggest inspiration in everything I create…

I also love to create jewelry for  my “Among Nature” Jewelry Collection.
The nature is my greatest inspiration for my Jewelry Designs. I often use found in nature objects hand-picked by me in special places I visit.  All my creations are made using only beautiful natural gemstones, seashells, fossils, woods, bone and crystals which  I combine with precious and semi precious metals.

Sometimes I write when words are whispered to my soul…this is one of my poems

Hands

Artist precious hands,
intensity and love givers.

Hands guided by a heart pulse,
forging and hammering metals,
holding precious stones.

Inspiration from the soul,
happiness  and art givers,
emotions in a motion of senses.

stroking brushes fulfilled with passion,
dripping water on white paper,
splashes of colors take forms.

Ink tears into the unknown
a creation is born.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Out Of This World

Sunset From Another Planet – Photo ©CarolinaRusso

Today post is about Photography!

It is a long time since I have participated to the weekly photo challenge.  The Daily Post  theme for this week it is very interesting  and inspiring and is “Out Of This World”. This week, share a picture that takes us on a journey into the unknown.

As an artist I feel that I am very often out of this world, while working on my watercolor paintings, creating my art. Inspiration and creativity can take you in many places where imagination rules  into the unknown. I enjoy the journey following my dreams and looking forward to see where they will take me.

The photo I am sharing today for this challenge, is another  gorgeous Southern California sunset. I took this photo days ago during an evening hike. The colors of this sunset were spectacular and I haven’t touched or edited this photo, no filter has been used,  it is just as I took it!

When shooting this photo, I really wanted to capture something different and unusual. I love to experiment and take photos in different and unexpected angle, using the camera in strange and unusual positions. When I went home, l have been looking at all the photos I took that day,  this one stood out to me for the beautiful intense colors, the contrast with the dark, the layers of clouds in the sky forming straight lines at the horizon. My angle shooting position created this high contrast and a diagonal  effect between the orange sky and the dark land. Transforming a familiar sunset in something different.  When I look at the photo from distance make me think an imaginary  sunset from another planet! Try to step away from your chair and look at the photo from distance, what do you see? I am really curious to know, please leave comments!

R.I.P. My loved Grey

 

R.I.P. Grey Love 6_9_2017

R.I.P. My love Grey! ❤️
I am coping with one of the saddest day, my beautiful and sweet Dutch Bunny “Grey” passed away unexpected last night 6/9/2017. He was only 3 years old and was coping with an abscess near his jaw discovered 2 weeks ago, abscess is a common condition in rabbits but very difficult to treat without surgery,  at the moment for the past week he was under antibiotics shots treatment before decide for a surgery.  Until yesterday morning he was doing pretty well. Last evening something happened that we don’t know he had his shot and he started to develop a condition and eventually complications and passed away during the night! I am very sad, I loved him very much he gave me so much happiness during these 3 years that it is hard to explain. The beautiful bond and unconditional love I was able to experience with him, is something I will never forget and would be always inside me! Today I miss him very much and he took a piece of my heart with him… ❤

I Love You Grey

 

Unconditional Love

 

I will love you forever Grey!

Thank You!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth – A Blossomed California Sunset In April…

A Blossomed Sunset In April – Photo ©Carolina Russo

Today I came across the post of the weekly photo challenge at The Daily Post and also if this is the theme for last Wednesday April 19 and tomorrow would be a new theme,  I still want to participate to this one, with one of my latest photo and share the beauty of nature with you all.

From The Daily Post: The theme for this week is “Earth” celebrating the Earth Day and our planet. This week, share an image that means “earth” to you — whether it’s a panorama of a landscape that takes your breath away, a close-up revealing a detail in nature, or another scene that honors the outdoors, we welcome your takes on the theme!

The photo I am sharing today is a beautiful Southern California sunset filled with lovely yellow flowers. I took this photo some days ago during my daily evening hike. I love my walk at sunset time it give me the opportunity to take beautiful photos of sunsets and fierce colored skies. California is a wonderful place for sunset photography no matter where you are if on the hills or near the ocean. This photo was taken on the hills of a trail I love to go. The nature here is beautiful lately especially after all the rain we had a month ago, everything turned out beautifully green a joy for the eyes since here often the hills looks yellow brownish and dry.
I enjoyed my walk a lot lately with these beautiful kind of evenings, but this week is already getting too warm and everything is already changing color.

When I took this photo, I really wanted to capture all the elements that makes our earth beautiful, the orange fierce sunset sky, the clouds, the land and the flowers. I almost felt I was creating one of my paintings, I had a clear idea of how I wanted the photo to be. To get this angle for my shot I had to almost laying on the ground! Turned out exactly what I’ve envisioned! I hope that you enjoy this portrait of nature as symbol of our precious Earth as much as I do.

I love to create unusual jewelry, with uncommon shapes and style, reminding the Tribal Talismans.
I named this necklace “Love and Clarity” because some of  the beautiful gemstones meanings.

This necklace feature wire-work wrapped around the gemstones and to the suede adjustable leather cord.
There is a sliding Turquoise Centerpiece that allow to wear the necklace in different ways just moving it.

A sophisticated accent to the primitive Tribal look is given from the beautiful variety of gemstones –
Rose Quartz Beauty and Love – Blue Quartz Harmony and Clarity – Agate Strength and Acceptance –  Mother of Pearl  Protective and Calming –

Crystal Amplifies – Turquoise Courage and Protection.

You can see it on me, I have one for myself!
I wore it when I had a meet up with some of my dearest Bloggers friends here on WordPress as you can see,
the necklace has a unique look that can change moving the Turquoise center piece up and down can turn in a choker or in an asymmetrical necklace.

More similar designs would be created and added time to time to this beautiful collection, so far there are three designs, this is the second.
The first one was this the “Strength And Harmony” necklace,
