• CeCeile Hartleib Web Portfolio

    CeCeile Hartleib is an accomplished representational artist who has been painting professionally for over 25 years.  She paints outdoors year-round in Minnesota and in other parts of the country. Because of her exceptional ability to capture personality on canvas, she is also in demand as a portrait painter. Hartleib maintains a studio in St. Paul, Minnesota.
  • Experiences and feelings in paint

    My work is about seeing - about light and the way it falls across forms. It is about moods or feelings created within me as I am painting and within the viewer while looking at these works. Even the way light falls across forms is sometimes enough to capture my attention and make me want to express my experiences or feelings in paint.    
  • Telling a story as I paint

    I believe I am telling stories as I paint and expressing my love of beauty, of nature, of people or animals as the case may be. Sometimes my mind goes off to a different plane and I am totally lost in my work, spending hours without realizing any time has passed. I am happiest and most productive at this time.
  • A Journey

    Landscapes, especially beautiful sunsets, gardens, rivers, lakes, water lilies - anything that takes one on a journey into their inner selves are subjects that I love to paint.­­­
