For the first gal to be featured in our “10 Questions” with a local series we damn sure picked a good one: Candace Ceslow, a local artist, “mermaid“, dog lover and all around cool girl.
LT: What’s your deal?
CC: I’m a crafty ass white chick.
LT: Why Montauk?
CC: Family, friends, the beaches.
LT: Long or short?
CC: Short! I’ve never looked good with long hair 😉
LT: In your opinion – what is the best, or worst, thing about Montauk?
CC: Best: how quickly the community comes together to help out those in need!
LT: Low Tide or High Time?
CC: Low Tide.
LT: What is your favorite place to eat – or drink – in Montauk?
CC: Late nights at the Pizza Village window and The Gig Shack.
LT: If you could instantly realize one wish, what would it be?
CC: To travel and explore more.
LT/CC: Before I sleep I always _ turn off my cell phone_.
LT: Favorite artist? Why?
CC: Philip Guston – his abstract expressionism period inspired me to give up the paint brush and not be afraid to use thick paint and palette knives. I only just recently started using paint brushes again. I’m currently also digging Stuart Shils and his landscapes.
LT/CC: I love to _create_ because _it makes me feel so refreshed and rejuvenated afterwards, if I haven’t painted or made anything in a while I get very grouchy…not fun_.
