Watercolor artist specializing in Egyptian-style painting

The paintings of local artist Anson Roseno will be on exhibit during June and July at the CARES Center, 7505 Rottingham Road, Port Richey. Roseno, a watercolorist, has been specializing the last few years in Egyptian tomb paintings.

He explains that he paints the Egyptian-style paintings on a framed canvas board to which he has applied a mixture of plaster and epoxy. "This is the Fresco Secco technique," he explains, "that is, tempera on a dry plaster."

This type of painting is used for wall decorations in either contemporary or modern interiors.

Roseno and his wife, Charlotte, lived in Tarrytown, N.Y., before coming to Florida six years ago. He had a retail store that did not allow him much time for painting, but watercolor painting was his hobby.

He attended the University of Virginia and graduate from the Pratt Institute with a degree in interior design. He was a student of watercolorist Edgar Whitney. His work was on exhibit at the Warner Library in Tarrytown.

At 76, Roseno is employed by Humana and says he still does not have as much time for painting as he would like. He believes that keeping busy is an important factor for making his life enjoyable.

The exhibit is open during CARES hours, Monday through Friday.
