Ironworker

The Oregon Iron Company was a vital part of early Lake Oswego. This painting is my homage to the iron industry for the Lake Oswego Festival of Arts Visual Chronicle Exhibit. June 24, 25 and 26.

Painting: Celeste Bergin, Ironworker, oil on 18x24 canvas panel

You are so versatile, really captured that concentrated look on his face.

Somehow I missed this one when I was at the art festival this evening. I'll just have to look for it tomorrow. I like it!

Awesome piece, Celeste, with beautiful point of view and some foreshortening. I love pieces that ring with history, as this does...when men were men! (Not that men aren't men now, but I think times had more blue collar family men years ago!)

Good composition Celeste! Your use
of color brings that moment in time to the viewer. I can feel the heat.

It's fabulous Celeste. I love the red and green.
I was thinking about all the paintings you've posted here on your blog today. It is amazing the sheer volume of work you do.
You inspire.
