O'Connor's --one of the "Eight+"

"Bather" Celeste Bergin Oil on 36 x 36 gallery-wrap canvas


The Eight+ put up new art today at O'Connor's. I love the spot I have between some sconces over a favorite table. My painting depicts a woman with a yellow towel. It is intentionally spare of details...a "less-is-more" way to describe the brightest glare at the beach.
This month's artists: Kitty Wallis, Katherine van Schoonhoven, Kimberly Kent, Carrie Holst, Carolyn Rondthaler and Eileen Nelson

Lovely painting, Celeste!

I can feel the coolness and smell the air in this one

Casey Klahn said...

Yeah! That is a good painting, Celeste. It puts a guy in the place, and not so much the scene but the idea of the beach, the woman and the event.

Congratulations on the show.

Katherine van Schoonhoven said...

Oooh! She looks so pretty on that wall!

Love the simple image, and it was really fun to see how large it is. It is absolutely striking, Celeste!

I LOVE this painting, Celeste! You made great editorial choices.

Love the mood of the painting, combination of your color choices and vagueness in the figure, it feels very romantic to me.

Now this I absolutely LOVE. Full of atmosphere. Yesterday I redesigned a recent painting as your comment on it had really struck a chord with me. So a huge thanks for your imput and comment, sometimes these things really do shake up our worlds and our art. And it's always a great learning experience when they do, so thank you :) The painting was Trap Door and the latest version is on my blog now if you fancy a peek.

That's a wonderful painting and the setting makes me wish I was having some coffee with a few other art loving folks right there!
