Celeste, This portrait is striking, and your previous painting, the Coach handbag, was just perfect! Your range of subject matter is so impressive, everything you do is lovely!

I too like both pieces and I too am especially drawn to the flowers. I don't know why...not my usual favorite subject, but there is something special...You always amaze me. I am so glad to have two of my very own Bergin pieces that grace my living room walls!

That bottom one looks like you did a little fracturing!

Beautiful model! I always enjoy these life drawing sessions and the different results. It's very fun to see how everyone else "sees" the model.

Hello Celeste!
I love your entire week of blog entries! I am trying to make more time to not only check out your wonderful art but to write comments!
I love the horse painting, the ballerina, and the beautiful rainy day!
I very much enjoy your portraits and Fridays was one of the best!
Keep on painting Celeste!

I just love the flowers!! Also it is amazing to me how much you accomplish in a session with the models. You definitely capture the person. Well done.

I love the flowers! It looks like the celebration is taking place right on the canvas. The green landscape is lovely too.
