August brings my redesigned Blog and my New Shop!


A new goal and achievement!
It was awhile that I had in mind to redesign my Blog! After three years I felt the need to start fresh, change the look and make it more mine using my own art. I have been working on this project for several weeks and made as it looks today! I hope you enjoy the new look and new navigation system through the pages I hope you find it easy! Another very important and primary goal redesigning this Blog  was to include my “New SHOP” so that everything is in one place Website/Blog/ Shop!

I have created my own Shop and it’s not the standard  e-shop with the cart that you find everywhere! Follow my guided pages while you visiting my Shop and you would see how easy it is to purchase my Art and have a direct contact with me throughout your shopping experience.
In the occasion of the New Blob/Shop launch I wanted to celebrate and I had my first GIVEAWAY here on the Blog!

Art For Music Series! New Release: Robert Smith “THE CURE” Portrait

 

Robert Smith – Art For Music Series – ©CarolinaRusso

ART FOR MUSIC Series!

New Release
– Robert Smith “THE CURE” Watercolor Painting Portrait –

Today post feature the release of my new watercolor painting a Fan Art portrait for my Collection “ART FOR MUSIC” a series inspired by music artists and by my passion for music. In this series I like to create artworks using several media, traditional watercolor paintings, ink drawings, digital art, photo manipulation and any other media that will inspire my creations.

The New Release of my watercolor painting is the  Portrait of Robert Smith the musician lead singer, guitarist, lyricist, songwriter  and the only consistent member of the iconic UK band “THE CURE” co-founded with Lol Tolhurst in 1976.  I am a lifelong fan of this amazing band, their music has been and still the soundtrack of most of my life. From a long time I wanted to paint a portrait of Robert Smith but it didn’t happen until yesterday. For some bizarre reasons I felt the wish and urge to paint since I haven’t painted much during this week. I wanted to paint, I was searching online for inspiration and I got inspired to paint Robert portrait right after I came across a nice photo  shared in one of the various Fan Groups of The Cure that I’ve joined on Facebook. That was the magic moment when I came across the color photo posted down below. I said to myself “today I am going to paint him!” I sat down and started to paint peacefully for hours listening my favorite albums of the band until the portrait was done! Isn’t amazing how creativity and inspiration works? Most of the time it strikes when you don’t even expect it! It’s fantastic! If ever Robert see my portrait I hope he likes it! ❤

Robert Smith “THE CURE” – Photo Credits ©Mauro Melis

The 2018 is a great year and a milestone for The Cure band because they are “Celebrating the 40 Years Anniversary 1978 – 2018” last July in Hyde Park,  London, UK they celebrated with a great concert and more to come in 2019! They are such a wonderful band is great that they are playing better than ever and still together! I am so happy that I was able to  paint my portrait during this milestone and commemorative year. I have attended their Concert in 2016  they came to US, Los Angeles during their North American Tour and I wrote a very detailed Blog post about that unforgettable and magic 3 hours concert I can’t wait to see them again. If you like you can read my wonderful experience of that day at The Hollywood Bowl read it > Here

This is the photo of “Robert Smith” that inspired my Portrait! What I loved is that he look you straight in the eyes!

Robert Smith ” The Cure”

My Painting Details: The portrait is a watercolor and ink  painting in my signature style. I am very pleased and happy I really love how the portrait turned out.

Day 9 – Sugar Frost – Bright Snow ©CarolinaRusso


DOUBLE CHALLENGE!

Day #9 Bad Apples12 Days ❤ Wintmas 2018
Prompts:  Frost – Bright Snow

Today post is for the Day #9 prompts are Frost and Bright Snow, I’ve created something different for today painting! Instead of using watercolor paper. I’ve painted on a beautiful leaf that I have harvested in the wood. I love to use nature finds in my art. I love to paint on leafs and bark. I painted a frosty snow queen and added gold and silver spark. I am very pleased with this leaf it looks beautiful and is 3D since the leaf isn’t completely flat has a beautiful dimension! I carefully hand pick and chose my leafs to paint on it, I look especially for their shape and natural curves.
