Nice, Celeste! Are they talking about that person walking by them? Their heads are both turned towards him/her. Wonder what they're saying...?

Now I have discovered Frederick Frieseke. Degas is the best one.

I had to look a second time at your drawing. Very well balanced - you are a fine draftswoman.

I like this sketch very much and enjoyed seeing the paintings of ladies and parasols! Thanks for sharing.

Went to the Matthew's Gallery and enjoyed the art; yours was outstanding.

Celeste Bergin said...

JacMac, thanks for reporting back on the Matthew's show..all my artist friends enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of that, thanks for the comment!

Oh Celeste...so wonderfully seen. I love your solid line work. This has a beautiful, immediate quality to it ; )

Very nice sketch.

I've been thoroughly enjoying catching up with your last few posts. The gossip, the catboat, the abstract, the paintbox. All treasures.
It seems to me that your line is getting stronger, more sure. Watch out--you wouldn't want to make it look too easy!

Excellent sketch - you have a sureness of line.

One day, there will be a Celeste Bergin on that page of umbrella/parasol paintings.

This is a gorgeous sketch! I think the values (dark darks and lights) make it. Oh- and the composition too!

Your "Woman with a Fan" was stunning.

OK- EVERYTHING you do is stunning.

You blow me away Celeste Bergin!!!

This is lovely! When I saw it I thought it must be a famous drawing--from Cassatt or some such.
