Fields and Waters: Misty Stream

Misty Stream_s 

Welcome September!
This post will feature my two new paintings created during this week they are included in my new watercolor series.  This is “Misty Stream” a moody landscape with beautiful colors combined with a hue of purple and a light touch of gold.  I am really happy with it! 
I am currently working on a Collection of small intuitive watercolor paintings named “Fields and Waters” if you missed my previous blog post, you can read all about this upcoming Collection here
Today I like to share an up to date little video gallery I made, where you can see all the paintings created until now but the latest seascape which I will post it down below! I hope you enjoy!

Fields and Waters is a Collection of intuitive and meditative art that soothe the soul of the viewer through delicate colors emitting feelings of harmony. 
This series is inspired by the calming beauty found around us in nature. I am focusing mostly on landscapes and seascapes using two very important and powerful elements Water and Earth. 

Living The Now_s
This seascape is the latest I painted. The title is “Living The Now” size 3×9 inches. I like the unusual paper size, I have another paper same size ready to paint a landscape! 
Each Original painting of this series is unique and painted on a beautiful deckled edges 100% Cotton watercolor paper, hand cut and torn by me. In my opinion the raw edges adds a beautiful touch to this Collection.
I am painting this whole series mainly with a painting palette knife and a couple round brushes. Each painting is very special to me.

Original paintings are size 3×4.5 and 4.5×6 and 3×9 inches

Fields and Waters

Awakening Path _s 

I hope to find you all well and that you’re having a lovely Summer. I can’t believe we are already at the end of August!!! I am doing well,  just I haven’t had time to post here on the Blog. Today I came to say hi to all my friends and followers and  to give you an update on what I am doing.
I am currently working on a new Collection of small watercolor paintings named “Fields and Waters” if you follow me on Instagram @carolinarussoart you already had a glimpse of it!
Fields and Waters Series_s
Fields and Waters is a Collection of intuitive and meditative art that soothe the soul of the viewer through delicate colors emitting feelings of harmony. I think at this time we all need peace and serenity in our lives.
This new series is inspired by the calming beauty found around us in nature, I am focusing mostly on landscapes and seascapes using  two very important and powerful elements Water and Earth.  
I have been painting places that appear in my memory or a representation of places I like near where I live here in Southern California. The ocean or a path where I go for my walks.

Sometimes I paint what  is created intuitively by my soul, I don’t know  the location but I am sure they are somewhere in the Universe.
When I paint without any reference is what I love the most it is a form of meditation where all is quite and calm,  I let my soul and intuition guide my brush strokes… the water and color freely blends together, taking precious shapes that become alive on the paper creating together the outcome I love.

Each painting is painted on a beautiful deckled edges cotton watercolor paper hand torn by me adding a beautiful extra touch. These are small paintings size 4.5×3 and 6×4.5 inches, they look beautiful framed.4b86af69-0ffc-4b94-a57f-a0406ec9caec
Since today I have created eight painting so far. I am planning to paint a few more and then release the whole collection by the end of August or beginning of September.7ab0f446-2dcc-4941-b269-d80f0a7f0785
This painting title is “Perpetual”  the ocean, the water movement and fluidity, water is conscious and carries information supporting life on Earth.
I am painting this whole series mainly with a painting knife and a couple round brushes. I love to paint with the knife it creates beautiful shapes and effects with watercolor. 

 

❤ Upon release all the Original paintings from this Collection would be available.  I will also have Limited Edition fine art Giclee prints available! If you have any question or would like to “Reserve” one of the Original paintings before the official release date send me a message for more details.

May The Mermaid’s Month

 

Ezra The Timeline Shifter

Welcome May and Happy Mother’s Day! 
Hope you all are having a wonderful day. During this month there is a lovely painting and drawing Art challenge it is MerMay the theme is Mermaids! This is a 31 days daily painting or drawing challenge, a great way to be creative. Art Challenges are good to test your skills, experiment new techniques and also to get out of block if you are in a moment of lack of inspiration. Join is fun and allow you to get in a serious every day painting routine or just to create a mermaid once a week or whenever you are able to.  Every year I am looking forward to a few Art Challenges and one of them is this one! An inspiring challenge to paint a few new mermaids to add to my “Mermaids Collection Series”. This year I am not planning to do the daily 31 days challenge but I will create some new mermaids weekly throughout this month. Last year I started a Mermaid Spiritual Series on the theme of “Awakening” I will continue on this theme this year too. I do create my own mermaids freely without follow any prompt list but if you would like to join and need a prompt list search for mermay2022 prompt list and you will find many. #MerMay is very popular between the artists community on Instagram you can also follow me there @carolinarussoart

A Tribute to Tigger – Pet’s Portrait

Tigger Tribute and Daisy Mae

Hello friends,

Today I am happy to finally share this lovely watercolor painting I recently created!
This is one of my latest commissions I have been working on. About a month ago I was kindly requested to create a “Pet’s Tribute Portrait” in loving memory of Tigger, the adorable gray Tabby cat you see in foreground of my painting. The sweet lady that contacted me is a follower Blogger Crystal she loves my art since last year she was the winner of one of my Giveaways. She requested this painting because this year on September 11th was the five years anniversary since Tigger crossed the rainbow bridge.  Crystal followed my World watercolor month during the month of July and saw several animals I have painted. The Squirrel, the Owl,  they lead her asking me if I do paint cats and of course I do! I said yes!
I am not new to custom Pet’s Tribute paintings. I asked her to send me some photos and she explained to me her request. She sent two photos of her cats, the ones you see here below.  

Tigger

Tigger and Daisy Mae (his sister from different parents), the two cats grow up together.  Crystal at first requested two paintings, one for each cat, then during our talking ideas via email exchange, she thought that would have been great to have one painting featuring the two cats laying together. I agreed, that was the best idea as I could envision it already in my mind, we agreed on everything and that was it! From these two simple photos, my only references I was able to reunite the two cats in my painting. Crystal loved it!  I am so glad and happy that I I was able to make her happy. I love animals very much their love to us is unconditional and amazing.  I lost several loved pets myself,  I carry them all in my heart.
I am always open to commissions requests like this one, to honor the memory and life of a loved pet.

Daisy Mae

I loved to paint Tigger and Daisy Mae and once again I want to thank Crystal for loving my work and wanted me to create this painting! Thank you!

If you would like a Tribute pet’s portrait in loving memory of your lost pet or a portrait of your living pet for questions, details and price Contact me here on my Blog or send a custom request on my ETSY Shop  I would be happy to discuss your idea!

Here you can see only few of many other pets tributes and portraits I made throughout the years.
