What a gorgeous setting for a home. And once again, I am reminded of the PNW, specifically the Grants Pass area or even the areas surrounding the climb into the mountains in WA. Love this color, and the sense of time passing or speed itself as you pass the house (the white space lends to this). Beautiful and dreamy, a favorite adjective for your work, Celeste!

Hood River?

Brilliant. Love it.

The amount of information is just right, and yet it has excitement.

This works! Interesting how those red umbrellas keep all the greens from sliding down the hill.

Who would be able to leave a summer cottage like this? It is dreamy.

Celeste, you captured a lot of emotion in just a few strokes of paint. This is a nice one!
