Thursday

I went to the Bread and Ink art discussion meeting today. The painting above is one I took with me to show. To see what everyone brought.....go HERE.

In the afternoon I got to go to a 2nd meeting at Cathedral Park/Studio 30. As a bonus, while I was there,  I was invited to go check out Mark and Matt Fisher's property on the river (dubbed "Green Anchors"). The property has a batch of uber-unusal structures/work areas and it's recently been featured in an episode of Grimm.  Mark gave us a tour on Captain Bob, his 66 year old tugboat. (Captain Bob was scheduled to be scraped, but Mark rescued it and plans to refurbish it). Here's a slideshow (.....and the adorable dog is "Jones"):

Beautiful painting, Celeste. It has a very romantic atmosphere.
I visited the link and I liked too the style of Marty Tassoni.

Greetings from Spain.

Love the painting, Celeste and the glint of sun glare in the distance. Definitely carries a mood that I find in so many of your pieces, which adds so much and makes them all just exquisite. Might I ask where that bridge is located? It looks like the Tacoma Narrows bridge that takes one from Tacoma into Port Orchard and Gig Harbor and other points east. A bridge I drove many a time and has some excruciating traffic issues during rush hour! Your day sounds fabulous and I have to say that I am awed by the boat and would love to have the time and money to take on a project just like that one!

I love the mystery of the darks....all of which makes the focal point even stronger! Great painting, Celeste!

Imposible no dirigir la mirada hacia la luz que otorga ese celeste de fondo!
Preciosas tonalidades para un trabajo excelente, Celeste.

Mis felicitaciones y mi deseo de un feliz fin de semana para ti y los tuyos.

A dilemma ...you show me a great painting and a tugboat ... can't focus on either long enough without getting drawn to the other.

Great post ...lovely painting

I am really loving these last two paintings. beautifully dramatic with the shapes and light.

I agree, I think exquisite is a good word to describe this painting. I have an affinity for evening and early morning scenes. This is a great example of how to create depth with dark colors.

Nice contrast. I like how the sun glows

Love that tugboat. What fun that will be to fix up. Hope you go back and paint it. Jones is a gorgeous dog.
