The Art and Opinions of Heidi Celeghin, Aesthete

I have disappeared for a few months because I have been hard at work on some new projects. I am currently focusing on a 4-figure commission. The details in such a large, multi-figure portrait can be overwhelming but I have been making steady progress. In some ways, I feel like this is perhaps my most ambitious portrait thus far. Stylistically, I’m informed by Caravaggio and am using extremes of light and shadow.


I am also looking forward to my work being shown at the AAF Hong Kong in mid-March. More about that later!



Portrait Commission Completed!

I just delivered a portrait commission yesterday to two very happy clients!  It is a portrait of a soldier and his daughter. Written on the bottom left-hand corner of his jacket is the title of the painting: “A Soldier’s Dream, A Daughter’s Wish.”
