Saturday!


 I did some framing today and painted a color study from a previous color study. (It's more of the "less is more" idea). 

Color Study: Celeste Bergin, Cut Flowers, oil on 12x12

Your glass bowl looks really..."glassy". I haven't tried painting glass yet, but it looks hard. Nice study!

Nancy Medina has recently begun a "less is more" series with her florals too. And both your's and her's are exquisitely beautiful! I find myself thinking on the deep beauty of these intricate roses. What a gorgeous piece!

I'm a great fan of "less is more".
I like how you have selectively developed the focal point.

Such great reds and looseness!

The square format is a fun challenge. I really feel this bouquet expanding beyond it's boarders - I know here is 'more' out there beyond the edges.

I deceptively simple painting that packs so much understanding and experience. Love the aerial perspective of the roses, the play of reds and blues, the looseness of the brush work. Everything is so fresh and vital. Beautiful work, Celeste.

A little explosion of color.

I love the colors! The brush strokes are wonderful. Did you use a palette knife on parts of this?
Looks formal,and it hints at Sargent.
I'm impressed Celeste!
