2021 Cat’N Around Catskill – Cat #39
“Celeste” by Ellen Levinson
Sponsored by: Mid-Hudson Cable
Description: Celeste was inspired by the recent planetary conjunction, my love of the moon and the mysteries of the galaxies, and the discovery of “star dust.” There is some textural sculping of the galaxies with added crystals and a bit of iridescent glitter in the background.
About the Artist: Ellen grew up on Long Island and began painting and crafting at an early age with her father. She studied drawing and oil painting with Charles Pasqualina at the Roslyn School of Painting. In 1996 she moved to Catskill with her family and continued to craft and quilt. In 2005 she took up watercolor painting and fell in love with the medium. She has exhibited extensively throughout the area. Her inspiration comes from local landscapes and trips to the southwest deserts. When her works bring joy to others it makes it all worthwhile. Ellen has been creating fabulous felines for Cat’n Around Catskill since 2010.
