This is yet another beauty. Love how you use all these gorgeous colors in this portrait! As to the piece below? Oh my! How stunning! And oh so classic! I love how beautiful she is despite the not quite classic nose. Reminds me of Streisand, to my mind another gorgeous artist!

She's larger than life, and captivating--but then of course! It's theatrical lighting. What a masterful job you've done with this. She's already performing and she hasn't even moved yet.

The vivid color and theatrical lighting is wonderful Celeste. Reminds me of Latrec. This portrait goes well with the warm/cool portrait you posted earlier.

These are really fun, Celeste, and inspiring for leaving a painting alone, early on.

Beautiful and theatrical colors here, Celeste.

Thanks for posting all of the PPASP pictures. Those of us who don't live in Portland wish we did!

Btw, very impressive piano player at the reception!

Great portrait. On Tuesday I actually got out of the house and visited a local museum and art exhibit.

Love that cool blue in the shadow and the warm tones in her face. Good Job!
