Pittock Mansion Reception

Here is one of 3 of my paintings in the Pittock Mansion for the show about the 100 year anniversary of the Women's right to vote ("Let us speak our minds"). Thanks, Pittock Mansion, for reminding us all that there was a time when women had to fight tooth and nail for what we now consider a very basic right.

(Thanks, in particular to Patti Larkin and Marta Bones and all involved at the Mansion)

Painting: Celeste Bergin, Resolve, oil on 14x18 canvas panel

Hi, Celeste,
Good on you! Go for that project(*I've been helping a project, "Immigrant Women's Speakout!" a bit similar regarding a feminist's point of veiw.) Anyway, your painting is nice!!
Cheers, Sadami

Lovely, such a good feeling to the portrait!

She's great, very pensive. I like the way you handled her costume.
Happy Painting.

I like it - she definitely has resolve. Beautifully painted, as always, I like the soft strokes in the skin, and the patchwork of strokes in the beautifully colored hair.

Such a lovely painting.

Congratulations. It has to be a pleasure to see your work in the Pittock Mansion. Nice portrait.

What a fab portrait! Amazing collar (boa?) and just love the way the brush strokes peter out into that broken effect. Very wow. And a face with spirit, just right for the occasion - womens' fight for the vote.
