The Artist's Point of View

Go HERE to see David Burbach's Artist's Point of View, his new show at the Photo Continuum. (It takes just a few seconds to load, then "Play Slideshow") Is there anyone you know in the photos?

And this is a detail of the large work I've started...(don't worry, it will make sense later.)

Detail: Celeste Bergin, Untitled, oil on 30x40 gallery wrapped canvas

Loved seeing Dave's work. Your new painting looks intriguing.

I like this already. Love the red underpainting. I hope some of that stays!

Why I believe that's you in slide 11 and a shot of your sketchbook and perhaps your hand painting the cowboy? That's a large painting you're working on, I'm inspired to go big.

It could be interesting right now as an abstract... I will wait for full painting

I had to check to see your medium, Celeste. I thought this was pastels! LOL Yep. I'm a winner (sardonic). At any rate, you have an exciting beginning and I can't wait to see what comes of this piece! Love the slide show too!

I saw ya hard at work in the slideshow, Celeste!
Nice swatches of colors in the detail... You have two blocks in the color of the year...The Pantone Company has selected "Tangerine Tango" as THE color for 2012

The detail is a painting by itself Celeste--and colorfully different. I can't wait to see the rest. I did see you in the photos. You do get around and attract a crowd. The kids must have been in awe.

Yep, you're one of the pipples in the slideshow--are those your hands, too?

i love the pic of you in the slideshow with all those kids watching. Very cool! I had to look at what medium this new painting is too. i also thought it was pastel!
You have me intrigued. I really can't wait to see the painting when it is done. It is very large. I am working very small(6x6" and 5x7" just for studies. but I am yearning to go very large. A full sheet of pastel paper perhaps. i don't have canvases to go this big! But I need a board to be big enough too. my usual paintings are either 9x12 or 12x16. I'm trying to get out of that and am doing more square shaped paintings. but this year I will be working large just for the fun of it! And some small ones to hopefully sell.
I love your enthusiasm! It is contagious:)
