Sprinkling Love

watercolor on paper 10.5" x 12" / 26 x 31 cm.

The reference is mine and it's a section of a photo I took at my daughter's Valentine's Day party many years ago when she was in kindergarten. I love how she is completely taken up by her cookie and pouring on even more sprinkles. It was not my idea to give the kids their own bottle of sprinkles, by the way!
This is also my first experience stretching watercolor paper. I have been keeping my work small but would like to work bigger. Any C + C appreciated

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/
