Hello, my name is Christine Soccio and I'm an abstract painter. I'm here on Kickstarter to tell you about my vision - to create a series of abstracts based on the beautiful landscapes of Litchfield County, Connecticut. I hope to raise enough money to spend the month of August there, drawing inspiration from the magical "slight of light" as it's called, that falls on the surrounding hills and farmland and makes everything seem more vibrant and alive. I've never experienced a wonder quite like it anywhere else.

The piece I'm working on in this video is my interpretation of this special place based on my last visit there. With nature as the catalyst, I look to produce work on a scale much larger than what I am accustomed to painting in my small studio at home, and to also publish a book based on these unique pieces of art.

Since funds are extremely limited right now, I am beginning this Kickstarter project to cover the expenses required for such a creative endeavor - including the purchase of canvases, paint, supplies, transportation and printing costs, and of course, securing a rental for the month. 

Over the years, I've found that receiving feedback from artists and enthusiasts alike has enriched my experience as a creative individual. Painting to me has always been a collaborative effort, and in starting this project, I'd like for you to become my partner through your generous donations and the work I give back to you.In the sidebar to the right you will see different premiums available by pledge amount. 

Anything you can donate, however small, will be deeply appreciated, and put me a step closer to realizing my vision. I am very grateful for your encouragement and support, and I look forward to sharing this creative journey with you. Thank you.
