Spring a Blythe Inspired Art Portrait

Spring – Original Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso

 Happy St. Patick’s Day!

Today My watercolor painting is the portrait of “Spring” a lovely and delicate creature, she has lovely long green hair braided with flowers and beautiful intense big blue eyes. I am inspired by the unique and beautiful Art Dolls custom-made for collectors. Better known as “Blythe Dolls” I love to paint and drawing Blythe dolls they are really pretty and one of the characteristics is that they have an over sized head and large beautiful eyes over a smaller body which make them a great subject for Pop Surrealism Art. Blythe dolls from years acquired a cult following of collectors, photographers and artists around the world. It’s always a joy to paint a portrait inspired, I came across lately to other artists following this inspiration and it is amazing that Blythe dolls acquired a cult following of collectors and eventually, photographers and artists around the world, if you are not so familiar with this you can read more about it here on Wikipedia.

My painting portrays an image of the coming Spring Season with her vibrant green hair and fresh flowers she is just there in the grass enjoying the beauty of a sunny day and I think she is also perfect to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day I wish to all of you a great one!

April Celebration! #FindaRainbowDay


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!

Hello everyone,

Introducing and helping the new ones to be inspired to grow sharing their work and expand their horizons and motivations during our amazing journeys here.

This year 2016 I decided to create a Home Page for the two events you find them on my menu and I will link them down below. Each page has all the details, Starting date, description, rules and how the two events work. Events are going to be linked together. I suggest you to visit the event’s pages and read the descriptions and how to participate and if you have any question contact me.
