Friday at Studio 30


I had a great time at Studio 30 today. The day began with the still life session and in the afternoon we painted our model Tess. She held some flowers, and because I opted for a portrait I imagined a flower in her hair. To see what everyone else did today.....go HERE.

What's going on for you this weekend? Painting? Art appreciating? Kicking back? Whatever you are doing--I hope it's whatever you really like!

Une très belle rousse... qui s'harmonise avec cette belle peinture aux fleurs...
Des couleurs qui apportent des étoiles au fond de mes yeux...

Ce week-end ce sera refuge dans ma peinture... et cet après-midi un agréable moment certainement avec une amie à prendre le thé.
Gros bisous

You did some fine work, Celeste! Two paintings in one day! You have such a unique style that I'm easily coming to recognize. The model is gorgeous too and I like that you brought a flower up from her hands and into her hair.

Always a good time at Studio 30!

My art buddy and I are going to an art show this weekend at Mondavi Winery. Should be fun:)

The still life is wonderful.I like your free use of strong color and quick brushwork. Very energetic for a still life.

This weekend it will be refuge in my painting ... and this afternoon certainly a good time with a friend to tea.

I like how you put that flower in her hair. That's cool! Two nice paintings, Celeste. I always enjoy seeing what the other artists painted too. Thank you!

Really interesting to see how each artist 'thinks' so differently. Great paintings though.

This week end I continued to paint and wallpaper a bedroom ... I'll be back to art tomorrow!
