– AURORA Watercolor Painting Portrait –


Today post feature the release of my new Music Artist Painting Portrait!

My new watercolor painting is a “Fan Art” Portrait of  “AURORA”  included in my ongoing project and Collection “ART FOR MUSIC”   my series inspired by music artists I love 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.

Today Release is for my New Watercolor Painting a Portrait dedicated to beautiful and unique AURORA her dreamy and pure emotional music stands out from the music artists crowd in today music world showing something different and unique. Her live shows are very emotional as all her songs are and made you feel like travelling through a tunnel of changing emotions from sad and dark to happy and joyful tunes throughout the whole show! Aurora started to write songs secretly at very early age following her own path and what she has produced and released is wonderful as in her songs she explores feelings and emotions in-depth mastering her own creative ways to communicate what pulses inside her soul not just with words as you can feel it in her gorgeous sound of her voice and see it in her body language. She is so expressive through her blue eyes and facial mimic to her hands and arms movements. She has the ability to turn one with the music while singing and dancing over her notes she is free to be authentically herself also wearing unique and artfully created outfits. She has a great way to perform in her live shows she connects deeply with who receive her message…her fans that she call her Tribe and warriors of light. She has an ethereal look with white platinum hair and pale skin she is like a walking tiny fairy stepped out of a fairy tale for a moment and ready to take you back in with her. Her uniqueness in all her aspects is why I like her so much and why I decided to create this painting dedicated to her and all her fans.


Aurora Aksnes is her birth name as she kept it as her name AURORA she is a Norwegian singer, songwriter, producer. I think Aurora was a prodigy child as she started composing melodies on a piano at the age of 6 and writing songs in her own world at the age of 9 as she still very young now she is already Internationally recognized Award winner and very much loved.  She became active to share her songs and music in 2012 until her  debut in 2015 with her beautiful and successful  EP “Running With The Wolves” the same year one of her single “Runaway” in UK received over 1 millions of streams on Spotify just in the first 6 weeks since the debut release.  During the year 2016 she released worldwide her studio album  “All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend“, in  2018 AURORA released her first half of her second EP album title “Infections of a Different Kind (Step 1)”, while she plans to release the second half “Step 2” to follow in 2019 or 2020. At this moment she is here in US for her North America Tour.
