Today is my birthday!

Today, December 26, is my birthday. It is not the best day for a birthday....generally people forget it..and who can blame them? Everyone is traditionally worn out on December 26. I've been told many people with bum birthdays change the date to something better...but I could never change my birthday--I think I have always liked that it is a bad one! haha. Well, today was an especially good one. I was surprised to get pages and pages of well wishes on my Facebook wall (that was so cool!) and I've been treated royally "offline" too. Thanks to all of you for making my day such a special one...not to mention my year! I didn't get a chance to paint today so I did this retrospective slide show (a little look back.....just for fun.....)!




Slide show.......Just for fun.....December 26, 2010

Happy birthday, Beautiful Celeste! I'm glad it was a happy one!!

But, what?! No painting?!!!

I suppose we can give you the day off since it IS your birthday and all that. Presents to open. Choruses of "happy birthday to you" to be endured. More presents. Cake. Enjoy it all. I am sure it was wonderful. Birthday hugs from me, Kvan

Celeste,

Yes, I did see the outpouring of the FB and very happy to hear that your day beyond that was just as blessed. The slideshow was simply awesome! I especially loved the process and and the party shots...you have had a prolific year. Yes, I am one of your "silent" followers, but I acknowledge and admire your work ethic! Continue with fire into 2001!

Happy, Happy Birthday!
Brian

Happy birthday, Celeste! It is an honor to be able to visit your blog. I also love how you investigate new artistic directions and ideas...ever learning.

You have a great knack for staying beautiful....is there a painting of you in the attic that strange things are happening to??!!

SamArtDog said...

Oh, HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Loved the slide show of you and all your stuff. You think that December 26th is a bad day for a birthday? It must make you a special kind of leap year baby cuz there's only FIVE candles on your cake! Way to go!

Happy belated Birthday, Celeste!
a fellow Oregonian at that! Mine is in December too and I love it, our birthdays are close to the end of the year, a marked time for us and a new beginning!

hwfarber said...

Happy Birthday and many, many more. I, too, noticed that you only have five candles. Great slide show; next year can only get better.

Kitty Wallis said...

Well, I forgot!. and we talked about it! Happy Birthday.
You are a wonderful friend, artist and supporter of artists.

If you're like me, birthday greetings still count through the week.
