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…

Me on a Malibu Beach – California

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.

April Celebration! #FindaRainbowDay

 

Double Rainbow

Double Rainbow

 

Double Rainbow

Double Rainbow

The Month of April is filled with interesting National and International Celebrating Days!

I am participating to the “Celebration” choosing some of the days that are inspiring to me and post some of my work like my own photos, watercolors, sketches, poetry. I got inspired to do this from my dear Doodlewasher friend Charlie O’Shields at Doodlewash I will join him some days during this month with my watercolors and tag my image #doodlewashaday  if anyone that love doodlewash wants to join please visit his post here  it would be fun!

Today is April 3rd and is “Find a Rainbow Day”

I am celebrating this special National Day with my Photography posting two lovely photos of double rainbows that I was lucky enough to be at the right time at the right spot when the beautiful rainbows appeared in the sky. The first photo was taken in 2013 I like how clear the colors of the main rainbow are sadly the second rainbow is very light to see in both photos but is there.

The second photo was taken on November 2nd 2015 is a photo very dear to me because this beautiful double rainbow appeared about 30 minutes after my dog Mojo died exactly 5 months ago yesterday! That day I felt like the rainbow was a sign from above from Mojo saying that she was happy.  I wanted to capture that moment and I took the photo with my phone.

April is also Poetry Month  and the 17th is National Hiku Poetry Day let’s get inspired and celebrate!

The following two sites are great resources for the “official” days that people are celebrating somewhere in the world: National Day Calendar and Days of the Year. If you like to celebrate in the way that best inspire you just choose a date National or International and let your creativity flow! 😉

Have a wonderful and colorful National Rainbow Day!

Ocean Whispers…

“AMONG NATURE” Jewelry Collection 2016
Jewelry Inspired by Nature ©Design Carolina Russo 

Fossil Seashells Necklace

Unique one of a kind Keepsake Jewelry
“Memories From the Ocean”

This ethnic necklace is part of a unique collection of designs created with elements from the ocean. The necklace has a double pendant wrapped in silver plated copper wire, it can be made also in Sterling silver or oxidized copper. The wire and leather cord are wrapped together around the bigger fossil seashell, holding a second smaller piece. The leather cord made the necklace adjustable in length through sliding knots and has two antiques wooden beads.  The unique pieces of Fossil Seashells were found by me on a beautiful Malibu beach in California. These pieces are one of a kind having different shapes and colors and no one is equal. During my journeys here I found other beautiful stones and more fossil seashell pieces in different shape, size and thickness. All the precious pieces are part of my personal collection to use for my limited edition or one of a kind jewelry designs.

Wave

Ocean whispers…
I love to think that each seashell spent hundred years of life travelling under the beautiful deep blue waters of the ocean until the waves left them on the shore for me to find and infuse them with my own Art. When I create my jewelry I feel very fortunate that, I can bring these seashells back to shine in a new beautiful life, this time it is outside the blue water for us to admire and treasure them like a unique and precious gifts from Nature.

From the ocean copy

Pieces of fossil seashells, coral, drift wood, beach pebbles stones, they all are very beautiful natural elements that I love to use for my jewelry designs. You can see more on my Jewelry Portfolio

This is one of the beautiful Beaches where I love to walk take beautiful photos and find my treasures from the ocean.

50 Words Story…Golden Aura

Golden Aura

Golden Aura

The bright golden aura was  expanding through the darkness of clouds lighting up the sky. Unconscious awareness of an awakening soul was swimming through the thirst of truth. Climbing stairs of universal love, finding peace and happiness into a rising moon.

Overwhelming beauty

Walking on the hills

Walking on the hills

Overwhelming beauty

The sunset light was approaching
the soft curved hills.
Evening was entering like a fierce painting
in the sky.

How amazing colors
in a new dimension that only
nature and someone above
has the power to create.

I felt that overwhelming presence
a strange feeling surrounded me,
all over like holding me
in a tight and breathtaking embrace

excitement and power for
something that I see unbelievable unreal
but truly real.

I am glad I was there
grabbing the drops of this
overwhelming beauty.

Walking on the hills Photo #2

Walking on the hills Photo #2

Yesterday evening I went for a walk on the hills…this walk was amazing!
I was at the right place at the right time. Just in time to see one of the most spectacular Sunset I have experienced here. California it is known for having amazing sunsets, but yesterday was something else. I couldn’t believe what was happening in a few minutes time frame. The photos I took with my phone are beautiful and I left them just as is. I didn’t edit with Photoshop or added any filters. I just added my signature I wanted to be able to share what was the sky was really this color was so intense and red that it was just so beautiful! I got inspired to write the poem “Overwhelming beauty” I hope you enjoy this and I wish you a wonderful day!

Photography – Over the Hills

Over the Hills

Over the Hills

Over the hills

Looking over the hills
I lose my sight in the beautiful horizon,
the immensity of Mother’s nature
that I cannot hold
brings me back and
lost in memories of places
so dear and
so far away
