Featured Artist forJune - Cecilia Capestany
I think of my artwork as snapshots in time: a bird on a branch, a landscape, a roadside vendor “as you see it.” They are the lure to invite the viewer to connect with the natural world or with other cultures. My approach is generally interpretive rather than hyper-realistic, and based on photos collected during travels with my husband. I conceive my watercolors as intimate portraits, painted on a small scale, to draw the viewer closer and feel contemplative. The paintings don’t tell the whole story; their full range of possibilities relies on the viewer’s imagination to make it its own.
