A beautiful tribute, Celeste. The shock of it is hard to get past and I think that it's part of being genuinely human to feel this so deeply.

Celeste! You Dear wonderful person.
You have moved me to tears.
How you put yourself 'out there'
and share your art of painted feelings amazes me. Thank you

Sundays Child is profound,(the painting) and of course, congratulations on the little one.
I don't know what more to say, yet I feel I have not said enough.

This as art.My senses quickened and upon viewing. It is deep and ethereal and otherworldly--this image will stay with me. It touches that inner soul--i can only image what it is to see it 'in person'

This painting and Sunday's Child are filled with whatever it takes to make art memorable. Great work.

Similar to celebrating a life beginning yesterday, you managed to remind us to celebrate the life leaving us behind. Such special moments spent expressing our art gives us emotional catharsis as well as lasting beauty and tribute. Mahalo
