The artist’s gallery of recent paintings showcases a series of plein-air landscape paintings that render alpine and forest views in beautifully soft, painterly detail. Cecilia strikes a great balance between photo-realism and impressionism in these works, presenting views that are expansive and lush but that remain firmly rooted in reality.

I like the perspectives that Cecilia chooses to paint. Most of her paintings express vast landscapes and include the distant figures of trees and mountains. Many of the works also seem to focus toward a central vanishing point, creating the illusion that the viewer is being drawn physically into the scene.
