Giuseppe the Wine Maker by Ellen Levinson
2018 Cat’N Around Catskill – Cat #48
Sponsored by: The Wine Cellar
Description: I designed “Giuseppe the Wine Maker” with The Wine Cellar in mind. Gave the cat a beret, a gray moustache and debonair vest and have him sitting in a wine barrel with sculpted grapes all around, a wine bottle and cheese & crackers between his feet.
About the Artist: Ellen grew up on Long Island and began painting and crafting at an early age with her father. She studied drawing and oil painting with Charles Pasqualina at the Roslyn School of Painting. In 1996 she moved to Catskill with her family and continued to craft and quilt. In 2005 she took up watercolor painting and fell in love with the medium. She has exhibited extensively throughout the area. Her inspiration comes from local landscapes and trips to the southwest deserts. When her works bring joy to others it makes it all worthwhile.
