Celeste- this is STUNNING! I love these urban images you do- they are truly my favorites. The animals are my favorites too- and the landscapes- well all of it!!!
I finished the challenge and tried to send you my images- but my yahoo account said it wouldn't go through. So I've posted them on my blog. You can take the images from there or I can try to send them again- or whatever! Mostly I just appreciate the opportunity. Thank you for the great exercise- you are a tremendous influence and inspiration. Thank you, thank you!

Very nice, Celeste! I like the abstract quality of it and the touches of color in the reflections. Good job!

Gee, I was enjoying this work. Then, I saw the dimensions...that's a lot of picture for such a little space. Well done~

Sigh...another moody piece that makes me long for the PNW. Oh to be able to move back! I absolutely love the rain and was one of the only people I knew in WA who wasn't bothered by the incessant rain. Gorgeous work here, Celeste. It appeals both compositionally and emotionally for me.

Great design!! Although this work is reality based, you succeeded in making it a balanced abstraction. Wonderful.

You can paint striking, powerful work even in the worse of conditions...

You amaze me.

The mood of the rain you created here with these subtle hues and with an abstractness is what is making it stand out.. impressive work, Celeste!
