Welcome November! A Spectacular California Sunset

November in Southern California – Photo ©CarolinaRusso

Welcome November!

During last few days I had a little break from painting to relax my mind and recharge after the full creative month of October!
The 31 days drawing INKTOBER challenge is a commitment and I wanted to stay focused during the whole month, without missing a day. It  was my plan from the beginning to use Inktober to create a new drawing series and collection inspired by the prompts. The 31 drawings are available in my Shop as Limited Edition Prints. If you had your eyes on a drawing visit my Gallery and If you missed my October posts, or you’re new on my Blog,  you can see and order prints of my Inktober  drawings visiting my Gallery, I am happy I made it to the end without missing days. I thank you  for following my Inktober and for your on going support and encouragement.

I cannot believe we are already in November, where the time goes?

Here in US where I live the weather still warm and feels not really Fall, is actually more of a “Summer” weather and is nice to spend outdoors evenings until last. These days we’re having intense sunsets in Southern California.  Yesterday on my evening walk I took this video, for you to see the beauty and feel the magic of the sky! The intense color was overwhelming!  What a great gift from nature! I am happy I was able to witness this sunset and capture this video. I love to share it with you, in hope to brighten your day where ever you are!

Note: No edit were made on the video, no filter, the colors are just as I took it with my iPhone!

I hope you enjoyed the sunset and until next post
I wish you a wonderful day or night.

Thank You!

Japanese Pond with Koi Fish – Photo ©Carolina Russo

Hello everyone,

This post is for the Daily Post  Weekly Photo Challenge, the theme for this week is “Liquid” share a photo of liquid in whatever state, shape, or color you happen to capture it in. You can go as big as the ocean or as small as a teardrop, as clear as vodka or as opaque as milk.

Here is mine, I love the reflection of the water and the lighting in this Japanese pond enlivened by the beautiful and colorful Koi fishes. I took this photo awhile ago and it also inspired me to create one of my watercolor paintings with the title “Girl With Koi” available as Limited Edition Signed Print on my Etsy Shop.

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!
