Celeste, The color harmonies here are beautiful. Balanced and natural. The big shapes read well. Seeing your landscapes makes me want to give it a try. Nice.

I just love Sauvies... I promised myself I would make it out there to paint this summer. Can you recommend any good spots?

Beautiful landscape! For some reason, I am reminded of the grand plantations in the south!

I like this one. It is just like you presented the "idea" of the place; like you were just sort of thinking about it. Nice effect:)

yours is a very different way of painting landscapes in bigger shapes as you see them. looks lovely and inspiring.

Another lovely, atmospheric painting! It really captures the ambience of our unseasonably cool, late-blooming spring here in Portland.

I see movement in this! And the space to run into the field. Fun!
Your colors are great.

I like how you used different colors in the trees. Very interesting shapes and bold expressive brushstrokes. Yes!
