Sunday .....!

Pencil sketch: Celeste Bergin, Sunday, pencil on 5.5 x 12 paper

This Strathmore sketchpad is 5.5 x 12, a unique format that makes the suggestion "hey sketch something tall and skinny or long and wide!" This is a sketch for a possible painting. Well, what about you... doing anything artful today?

I love her hat! And I hope you'll paint her.

My art today has been in my head. The humor is seeping back in and I'm laughing more. I spent the last week in a creative void and doing essentially nothing creatively. Taking a break isn't always the thing I need to do.

Maybe one day, I'll learn to be more like you Celeste- consistent.

Nice sketch. Open, not overworked, fresh looking. Great light. I've been trying to clean up this room so I can think. I know I better start buttering up some panels before the momentum goes away. Great work as usual Celeste, that tea pot is really striking. The background really sets it off.

I've seen these fun skinny sketchbooks..... they can really give your sketches a different perspective. Nice job on this one Celeste.

Oh oh oh! My palms and feet bottoms are sweating. Happens every single time I see something that appears to be high up and the chance of a painful, if not deathly, fall can happen! But what a glorious sketch nonetheless! I love the period clothes and boy oh boy...this sets my imagination soaring and my mind wondering. Happens all the time with your work, my friend. And by the way...I told Michael he could also look in OR for a job...

Beautiful sketch--she seems to be out on a limb.

I love this! First sketch like this by you that I remember, and it reaffirms what I've seen in your paintings - that it's all about values.
