The Grand Blanc Arts Council presents an exhibit of watercolors by Christie Macciomei through the New Year at the Grafted Root Eatery in the Coach Stop Plaza in Grand Blanc. Hours are 9-3 Tues –Sun.
I have painted for over 20 years. It started as a way to relax and allow my creative juices to flow. I have studied art from books to international travel. I have been taught by renowned artists and some that have been painting less time than I have; but I always learn something I can take away from the class that makes me a better painter and a better person.
I use water color paint as my medium of choice; although I have worked with other mediums, water color allows the vibrant colors, the workability and even when one might think it is washed out, a new creation will emerge.
I have long enjoyed painting flowers because of the variety of types and colors. I also enjoy the shading that flowers allow; however, I’m learning to create abstract paintings that permit a whole new arena of expression.
Thank you for perusing my work.
From the heart
