Cape Cod, Boston and Beyond...
Maria Consoli - Artist
I approached the visual arts with renewed interest and determination when I moved to Cape Cod in 1988. My own efforts at teaching have helped to reinforce and solidfy my personal style which is basically impressionistic. I seek to capture the bright tones and rich textures of a wide variety of subjects in the city and by the sea. I find oil painting best expresses the warmth and coolness of seaside colors and captures the value patterns of outdoor objects under various lighting conditions. Whether it be a summer cottage in Chatham, a drifting sailboat on Pleasant Bay or a group of ice skaters in the Public Garden, I try to craft images which are always colorful, often nostalgic and sometimes whimsical. I believe that visual arts should evoke vivid memories and inspire oneness with the world around us while eliciting warm emotions.
"Maria's beautiful works of art are featured extensively in our home. Each painting evokes fond memories of our family trips to Cape Cod and Boston."
