Saturday!

I'm trying to get a little "spring cleaning" done in my studio, but I did not get very far today. ( I let distractions take over).  I'll get back to it tomorrow. Meanwhile, I did manage to add the glaze to this painting. I'm pleased with how it came out. How about you, blogging friend...how is your weekend?

Painting: Celeste Bergin, Golden Evening, oil on 8x8 canvas panel

Wonderful "earthiness" of this piece - lovely!

Une peinture paisible où seul le lit de la rivière semble se mouvoir lentement...
Aujourd'hui après une merveilleuse journée ensoleillée et chaude, nous avons malheureusement la pluie!... et chez nous en France c'est la fêtes de toutes les mamans... un jour de relâche...
Gros bisous

It must be the season, any number of artists are having a clean out of their studio, me included.

I love the light and glow of that river. Its wonderful.

The glazing makes this piece positively glow!

This just adds such wonderful light, Celeste. Whatever you are glazing with makes the piece seem so master-like to me. I just love it!

I am pleased too. The painting looks like Spring came to the wetlands with your spring cleaning. Any minute I might accomplish that myself if I wasn't always sidetracked. I pick up a brush, I've got to put some paint on it. Does anybody really have a clean studio? Is it really necessary?

Love the golden glow of this glaze, Celeste!

Hi Celeste, your painting is warm and beautiful with a lovely contrast of the silver lake stream running through the dark colors of the fall foliage and grass. Kind of looks like a Thomas Kincade painting. Always look forward to your surprise paintings of different subjects. Are the roses blooming in Portland yet? Have a lovely art Sunday, Celeste!

This Blogging friend also thinks it is wonderful! As I am seeing your painting I am also listening to a Violin Sonata by Joseph Joachin, "Romance", which matches your painting in tone and feeling! Lovely commbination!
