I went to the Bread and Ink meeting today. It is always so much fun to talk to the other painters about their recent plans and projects. To see what was brought to the meeting go HERE.

Oil sketch,  Celeste Bergin, Manet's flowers, oil on 10x10 gessoed paper

L'esquisse de cette nouvelle peinture est sur la bonne voie... Je m'attends à admirer une toile magnifique.
Il est toujours très intéressant de voir l'évolution de votre travail.
Gros bisous à vous.

Oh such a beautiful palette! Too, I love the sense of this being more a an almost dream-like quality to the piece...whose table is this? What year were these flowers blooming?...That sort of thing. So lovely, Celeste!

Great job in simplifying the flowers and love your soft edges. Another beautiful painting!

The warm grays here seem to heighten the subtle colors. I wouldn't know to do that!
