I am delighted to showcase today in my Artist Watch column at the online arts magazine Escape Into Life the work of the masterful painter Christine Cardellino.
Christine, whose passion for art developed somewhat "belatedly", she says, displays in her work not only a deep and inspired interest in fairy tales, folklore, and fantasy, but also a fluid command of her brush and medium.
Today's Artist Watch features seven of Christine's imaginative narrative paintings, her Artist Statement, and a biography.
Christine maintains a studio at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, Virginia. I have visited her there and can attest to how marvelous her paintings are and how welcoming she is.
