Welcome to my little artsy creation! All images are copyrighted by Charlene Celio

Here is my version of the gazebo at Gamble Garden in Palo Alto, CA. After I set up the sale tables in the living room of the house and put my paintings on easels near the front door, I discovered that there was a large contest that had taken place one month earlier. The artists' tasks were to paint Gamble Garden. The winning painting would be printed on the advertisement for the house tour and it would have posters made of it. Over 40 artists entered and 20 were chosen to show and sell their paintings at an Art in the Garden Show this coming July.... I hadn't heard about the contest before this. What a coincidence that I was painting this gazebo along with many others and I didn't even know it. To tell you the truth, I like mine and I think it's a winner too.
I'm a mother of 5, mother in law to the two wonderful ladies, Katina and Gabby, and "over the moon" for my granddaughter, Evie. I'm married to my words cannot express how great he is husband, Rich (jazz drummer extraordinaire). I also am a fan of my son Jonathan's painting, drawing and comedic talent, http://cave-o-horrors.blogspot.com/, and of the very talented actress, Katherine Celio, www.katherinecelio.com, and so proud of my daughter Aletheia who designs Apple Computer's web page. I go to lots of my daughter Bethany's soccer games and soon will be Grandma again to my son David and his wife Gabby's baby boy, Andre. I created this Fine Arts business in 2006 and hope it lasts for a very long while.
