Caputo writes "I love to create pictures because it makes me smile !!! There is something wonderful about pulling a paintbrush across the paper watching the colors merge and dance across the page bringing shapes and shadows to life. Houses take on a personality, magical trees reach up to the sun, cats peer out at the moon, women dance in joy, mermaids go about their daily life kissing sailors, aggravating their fathers and fish show up in unlikely places, like flying high over Portsmouth. What more could one want?
Joy, intrigue, and humor are my favorite subjects and for me using watercolors is often the best way to express these wonderful emotions of the human heart."
