Friday!

I used the palette I learned from Kenn Backhaus for this plein air study. (It's Titanium White, Lemon Yellow, Raw Sienna, Permanent Rose, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue and Ivory Black).

Study: Celeste Bergin,  Sandy Delta Park, oil on 8x 10 canvas panel

Are you watching the Olympics? Can spot Greg Louganis in this video? (...and...yeah... call me maybe!)

I thought I'd read a few years back that Greg Louganis had died from AIDS. I must be mis-remembering.

Anyway, this is very impressionistic my friend, and very beautiful!

Your painting is fresh. Nice open location to paint. I remember Greg Luganis is a famous swimmer.

Loved the video - they had great fun making it, its in their eyes

ANOTHER gorgeous landscape Celeste!!! The colors are spectacular. I love how you can use these muted tones and yet are more than expertly skilled with riots of color in your flower still lifes.

I haven't watched much of the Olympics, yet. I'll look for Lou- thanks for the video.

Obviously, the palette works for you. Beautiful painting!

ooh! I heard about this fun series of cruise compeitions he's doing with Kwan. Love it!

I'm watching as much of the Olympics as I can tape. Right now, I'm starting to watch tonight's tape. (called: fast-forwarding past commercials)
