Rosetta

12X8 watercolor on paper

This watercolor, painted from life, is of a Roman artisanal bread roll. It is a product to be consumed while still fresh because it tends to loose its special aroma and flavor within the day. On the inside it looks as if it has been blown due to the absence of crumbs which makes it brittle and different from all other Italian loaves.

About Celia Blanco

I am from Northern Virginia, brought up in a household where creativity has always been encouraged. I developed artistic interests at an early age. My mother, who also loves art, was instrumental in this. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Maryland Institute, College of Art, in 1992. At that time, I experimented with many mediums. After graduation, after being required to work mostly with oils, I was able to follow my instincts more, drawing closer to watercolors. Family priorities resulted in a hiatus that lasted for some years. I approached the Arts again in 2010. I strive to explore the limitless possibilities watercolor painting offers and admire the endless effects that can be obtained. I paint a variety of subject matter, plein air, from life or from photos. What I find most stimulating are the seemingly commonplace moments or scenes that are often overlooked. I try to convey concepts by shaping and arranging the different creative layers the medium offers. I strive to apply myself daily, in spite of other responsibilities, forever challenging my skills and level of awareness. At the present, I live in Rome, Italy with my husband and two daughters. watercolorsbyceliablanco.com  http://watercolors-celiablanco.blogspot.it/
