ARTIST OF THE MONTH

Annette Conticchio

Watercolor Painting

I have been painting with watercolors for over 15 years.  With the encouragement of family and friends I am compelled to share my work with you.

That being said, I have found that painting as well as playing music has helped me get through a lot of life’s tough challenges.  When I am painting, I get lost and find that peaceful place within myself where nothing around me exists, even if it’s just for a short while.  I enjoy challenging myself with new subject matter whether it be billows of smoke from a train, reflections in glass and metal, or the beauty of nature.  I believe painting is all in the details and this is what I strive for.  The more challenging a piece is, the more I want to pursue it.  I find a spiritual joy when I complete a painting to which I truly believe is divine.

So, explore my paintings, something may just jump out at ya!
