Maybe...

Maybe a less than favorable weather day gives us a chance to practice the subtle things....Maybe grays are really beautiful and everything does not have to be described to the nth detail. Maybe I am not finished with this...or maybe I am.

Painting: Celeste Bergin, Powell Butte, oil on 8x8 canvas panel

Your atmospheric paintings are wonderful. I seem to like every one of them and I think it is because the design is always good and the values are perfect.

Ha! I've been feeling a lot like that lately: "maybe I'm not finished with this, or maybe I am".

Personally, I think you should call this one done. It's just right!

I have to agree with Victoria; this painting sings to my love of the rain and how the light makes the weeds and grasses look so sharp and bright almost. Beautiful painting, Celeste!

Gray days (and grays) are really wonderful aren't they? Colors pop out more I have noticed and the rainy weather makes things hazy. Your painting is turning out wonderfully:)

I personally believe that the grays are the most important colors in the painting.
In Spain we call it "half measures" much used by the great Spanish masters. This painting has great color quality, direction and velocity of the brush very interesting.

Subtle and beautiful! So peaceful!
It looks finished to me Celeste. However, I hardly ever know when to stop painting! When I am not sure I am learning to pause and maybe go back later and decide.
Yesterday you painted a fantastic painting with so much movement and today you posted a beautiful peaceful serene work. I like the variety!
Michael

Love, the foggy, mysterious quality of this painting! Beautiful!
