"Contemplative" has a wonderful "daydreamy, look out the window on a lovely summer day" feel to it. I really like the color palette.

These are beautiful, Celeste. I just adore the natural and wonderful palette you've used. I am reminded of metals, oxidized, reflective, deep and dark, coppers and brasses...

I love the first one. The contrast in values on the face. The Oranges. High key but somehow it is contemplative. Quite beautiful.

There's a little of the bejewelled quality of some Klimt Paintings in the first piece.

The colors in the portrait, especially, are so vibrant and vivid. I love the contrast between the blue headband and the yellow and oranges. Beautiful!

My town needs an art bar & bistro. The orange hair and pink skin are interesting.

WOW, been awhile since I've popped into your blog to see your work, though I do see some on FB, think this is nicer.

You're really going gang busters.

Hi Celeste,
I'm glad I've met you. I lost the card you gave me at The Canvas but I've located your contact information so I'll add you to my Candlelight Wine Cheese Live Model email list. Thanks for all you are doing for artists with your photos and blog.
