Unbelievably good. I love this one.

Every night, before getting ready for bed, I check for new blog postings. No matter how tired I am, your paintings make my eyes pop.

This one has a little Edward Hopper in it.

Fantastic, Celeste! I like the cool aqua color surrounding the dark figure. Makes him "pop!"

Oh is this gorgeous! I love this piece, Celeste. It speaks of mystery and romance, movies of the 1940's, glamour and intrigue to me!

Congratulations! I'm glad you scratched out this one after you tripped over your pile of junk (lol!) When I see your work, and your productivity, I am inspired. I love the impressionistic brush strokes. You are a magnificent artist and I love to visit your site. And I remember "Yesterday's News" from an older post, and I still like it (I am, as you know, partial to works showing people doing what they do).

As for the "Letter to the Student of Painting", I have been weighed down lately by some events involving my autistic son - today I am utterly exhausted. As such, I love the line about freeing the mind and creation. It came at the right time for me. Thank you.
