Large Mixed Media Figurative Painting "In Search Of" by Cecelia Catherine Rappaport




60"x54" Mixed Media on Wood/Sold

Commissions are welcome.


This is a very special piece I painted while living in our house overlooking 
the Red Rocks in Sedona,Az.
The creative process began when I chose two dominant paint colors from the surrounding 
landscape and splashed them onto a watercolor pad.
As the paint was drying, I began to see many different forms taking shape. 

Below is a photo of the art piece in the very beginning....

Being active and creative... with Cecelia Rappaport

Being active and creative, enjoying your passion(s) daily seems to be much more conducive to a happy, healthy long life.


Just a few of my observations tell me so.

After spending the weekend with my husband's extended family, I am always impressed to see how much everyone is involved, evolved creative and active in so many ways.  It impresses me to see my father-in-law, who will be 90 years old this August, and one of the most active & influential people I know.

He and his wife of almost 40 years celebrate the arts, science, philanthropy and point to the importance of staying mentally ambitious, alert and aware as we grow older.

Let’s face it..it keeps us interesting to ourselves and to others.

Check out their foundation website:  www.rappaportfoundation.org.

Another great example is the Cuban-born artist Carmen Herrera   https://news.artnet.com/market/carmen-herrera-turns-100-303360 who is now 100 years old and sold her first painting at 89 years old.

I vote for staying ACTIVE and alive. There’s still time with each new day!!!!!
