Art Vs. Artist 2022

d53228e6-9c02-4d30-8529-dbce014f505f

#ARTVSARTIST2022

This is my Art Vs. Artists 2022,
I like to share with you what this is in case you’re not familiar with it. The hashtag #artvsarist  is going on from years. I am not sure about the precise time, I guess this trend started among artists around the year 2016 on internet social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook etc. Some call it Trend, Challenge. It is actually a way for artists to quickly showcase images of their work along with a photo of themselves. In a nine squares grid, artists pick their best artworks from the current year and usually the spot at the center is used for a selfie. I think is a nice way to discover the artist behind the art a little spotlight that brings quickly all together. I did participate to this in the past few years and I find it nice to look back at the previous ones to see how my art and work evolved. This year my grid is filled with landscapes. I selected some new paintings from my upcoming Collection release  “Fields and Waters” and in the center a fun photo of me!
If you are new to my Blog and my art and want to know more of what I do read my About me
This is also a great way to discover new artists. If you would like to participate showcasing your work and yourself, you can until the end of the year!  Easily find a template grid, I used the Layout App on my iPhone. When you created your 9 squares grid share it using the hashtags #artvsartist #artvsartist2022

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.

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.

This painting title is “Perpetual”  the ocean, the water movement and fluidity, water is conscious and carries information supporting life on Earth.

Prompt:  Do Over

Today was last day of this wonderful World Watercolor Month. The prompt is “Do Over” I painted this same rose already once and I did it again.

I hope that you enjoyed to follow this month challenge, I thank you very much for your support and love for my art, it means so much to me! Thank you I haven’t painted 31 paintings this year, I have been busy, but I was able to paint  a variety of subjects from landscapes, seascapes, flowers, animals, and mystic ones. I hope you resonated with them! I guess you did, from your lovely comments! Thank you, of course I am not stopping here, painting isn’t my hobby is my living!  I will keep painting, I am so grateful that I have a nice commission painting that I need to do soon. I will share it with you when Is done and received. Stay tuned for more art! ❤

#WorldWatercolorMonth2020

Day 30
Prompt: Pose

Today painting is inspired by the prompt “Pose” and for me is time for a meditation 🧘‍♀️ pose! This is what instantly came to my mind while preparing for today painting. When thinking at the prompt Pose, I had a strong pull for a Meditation pose. As I mentioned already in a previous post, meditation is part of my life from long time, it is something I do daily!
I can’t believe this month of July is almost over! Tomorrow is last day of the 5th Edition of this wonderful World Watercolor Month Challenge!

Day #28 World Watercolor Month 2020

Day 28 – Prompt: Complementary -Watercolor ©CarolinaRusso

#WorldWatercolorMonth2020

Day 28
Prompt: Complementary

Today painting is inspired by one of the beautiful birds I see once in a while here in California, is the California Scrub Jay it has a beautiful blue color and often is mistaken for the “Blue Jay” which is another specie. The Scrub Jay is a nonmigratory bird and can be seen also in urban areas. I see it sometime in my backyard, it is a pretty big bird and is always nice to watch whenever shows up! Here there is a photo of this beauty.  About today prompt “Complementary” and this painting, I think that us humans and animals are complementary we won’t be the same without animals ❤
