Your fantasy landscape looks warm -- where I'd like to be these days. It's so softly dreamy. Nice!

Another good landscape - this one a colorist work. I've been wanting to put some yellows in my works lately, but haven't done it yet.

Inspiring me!

The song "Sunrise, sunset" from Fiddler on the Roof is now in my mind. This is beautiful and oh so warm!

I have been admiring your wonderful little paintings! I haven't heard 'alla prima' in years--brings back my old art teacher's voice from 40 years ago. Your warm yellow fantasy landscape is a welcome sight for us all here at the end of winter--how timely. That Sandy River piece is a jewel--there's so much going on in it, its astounding that it's so little. I like the surreal quality of the Italics guy too--the tilt is amplifying his solitude to me. Great work, Celeste. Til the future--Wm

Your fantasy landscape is every bit as beautiful as your plein air ones. Beautiful!
