A good portion of my day was spent putting together a donation for the Cascade AIDS Project. (The painting in this post is not what I am submitting). Artists actually get juried into the CAP event, so I don't want to put my donated piece in my blog yet..that might jinx me! Last year we delivered our donation submissions to a building, but this year I'll be delivering my piece to a parking lot downtown. That's how the instructions read. Sketchy! Kind of like espionage! Cool! By the way, if you'd like to donate, donations are being accepted both Saturday and Sunday. find out about it HERE.

(Oil study above = "Fields" oil on 5 x 7 canvas panel)

How cool! How prestigious it would be to get juried in what appears to be a very successful fundraiser. I'll be crossing all my appendages for you Celeste!

Good luck, Celeste. May your painting not only be juried in, but bring much revenue to this cause.

Well, I sure like THIS piece, Celeste. It is so pretty and those yellows and reds in the rows is so magical to me. Just keeps drawing my eyes, really. Good luck getting your donation accepted (that sure sounds weird, but I'm guessing because it is juried that it is fitting? - I know so little about art shows as I haven't the talent to enter any.)

this seems to be so fun !
you said "never boring fron me " .... what can i say about you ? you always bring someting really interesting !!
good luck with the donations .

this painting is so pretty . the way you worked the colors of the plantation ( is it a plantation of something , i am too urban , don't understand nothing about ) .
that dark spot on uper left intrigues me ( a rock? a cliff ? )... i loved that , so decisive and abstract . so dominant and beautiful .
oh no , i don't want to tell you what to do , but i felt like to paint just that . all over the canvasses , just to see what happens , what it really has to give :)
have a lovely saturday Celeste .

That painting looks so much larger. Looks good.

Luscious colors in this painting, Celeste.

Perspective has been called into use for drama...all those beautifully cultivated fields leading to? Maybe J. Alfred's Prufrock's overwhelming question in the form of a geological feature.

Congrats on the other painting. This one has a wonderful blending of colors. I have just started in oil and I love how you have used it here.

I love this painting Celeste. Such wonderful colors and the scene is gorgeous. I look forward to seeing your donated painting- and hope the cause is a huge success.
