Celeste, the content of this painting is enough to make me happy. But your treatment of atmospheric perspective seals the deal.

Gorgeous - a misty morning. Almost a Turner!

Celeste, this is so very beautiful. I find myself wanting to be just sitting and enjoying this spot, drinking in these beautiful springtime colors...Just a most gorgeous painting and somehow, you always inject dreams into your painting...Perfection!

Excellent painting, Celeste!

The unity in this is something I admire a lot. Tremendous! Also, OTOH, the elements are pleasing (exciting, actually). I love the bright green, and then you've countered it with grays, perspectives and masses.

You are a fine artist, Celeste!

I love the haze. Check out the haiku on this post that describes the feel of the scene: http://magicalmysticalteacher.wordpress.com/2010/06/05/haiku-bones-quietly/

It is just lovely, like all your work. I enjoyed seeing your paintings at the Broderick Gallery. We made it to the opening around 6 pm but you had already left. It is a wonderful space, and views of the river are magnificent. Take care until we meet again!

You've really captured the lush, rich green that speaks to our generous rainfall this season.
