Wonderful to see how you develop older works into something new!

This is lovely, Celeste! I really like the trees silhouetted against the sky. It looks like you used alizarine crimson there. It's beautiful against the light sky. The mid part of the painting seems dark and shadowed, and then the water is bright again, reflecting the sky. Very nice!

Ahh, the worlds you create! I am amazed at the way you use old paintings to create new ones. On the last post, I would think the upside-down head would make things awfully confusing. This is very beautiful. I like that everything is suggested with very little detail.

Your limited use of hard edge in this painting is very appealing. I move right to the top set of trees and then travel around. Nice. i really like this one!

Celeste, I think you can take any old land and water and make it sing.

My goodness! I missed another gorgeous CB piece! This is really beautiful Celeste, and definitely reminds me of Oregon. It also reminds me of the pristine countryside that the Native Americans roamed so freely so long ago.
