Lovely gray day with muted colors. Your paintings are very poetic.

Celeste! I want to get lost in this. As a scene, it's beautiful. As a painting, it's expressive and
heart felt.
Those color moods, and brushstrokes
are truly an art in itself.
Thanks for painting and expressing
such wonderful work.

Yet another beauty, Celeste!
A lesser artist would have totally botched this breath-taking scene in paint.

I love enlarging your paintings and getting a good look at every stroke.

Oh my god!! This one takes my breath away! I love this! I love the colors, the strokes, the scraping the excitement, the calm, the contrast - all of it! Never - repeat after me - never - paint over this one, you hear me?

Lovely painting (as usual!). It captures the grey Oregon summer we're having very well!
