December 26!

Today is my birthday and as birthdays go...it is an outstanding one. I even found time to paint this practice floral (using three values). I painted it quickly and it is not quite finished...but I might get back to it tomorrow. 

Thanks to all of you for reading and commenting on my blog all year long....you are very much appreciated! .......Here, have a piece of my cake.

Happy Birthday Celeste!
Love the flowers! Really love the cake! Probably too late for a nice still life painting?
Paint on!

Darn it! Happy belated birthday, my friend. I wish I'd known yesterday...Your cake looks delicious!

Love the floral painting and the way you've managed depth and dimension as though the flowers are tipping towards you from their vase.

Happy birthday! Now I know why I like you so much - you have the same birthday as my firstborn son! (or did I say that last year already, my memory's not so hot). Love the floral! So complex for a quickly done painting, and quite beautiful.

What a great floral. Colors are gorgeous. I do want to say how much I love the vase. Amazing !
Happy birthday AND happy new year, Celeste. I will look forward to seeing more of your fabulous paintings.

Belated birthday wishes to you and thank you for the yummy cyber-cake.
Your flower still life looks luxurious!

Don't forget --- a birthday is never just one day. I like to call it "the festival days". They last as long as I can take it.
Obviously, yours lasts into next year. Awesome, dude!

Happy Belated Birthday! I love painting, too, with the flowers emerging from the mysterious dark background. Lovely!
