In the second of my posts about artists at out local art exhibition I've chosen to showcase the work of Concetta Ducato.
Concetta is the daughter of an artist, she grew up in her father's workshop where she learnt how to paint colourful traditional scenes on Sicilian carts. After her father retired from the business Concetta began to concentrate on expressing her own art. She started to experiment with new techniques and materials and now works with a palette knife instead of a brush.
She loves to paint the sea and the coastline (there is plenty of inspiration around here!).
Although my photographs here have come out a little dark I've been attracted to the light in these paintings everyday as I walk through the exhibition.
I wanted to show you some of Concetta's traditional work too although as she says they are two very different styles.
