You captured such an emotional quality in this gem of a painting, Celeste. Simple shapes, yes, but it reads as so much more complex. I love it.

Love that gorgeous green around the boat, the sense of isolation, the water...I think I want to be the guy in the painting! Beautiful, Celeste!

Libby Fife said...

Mmmm! Really like this one. Great colors and I like the imagery of the lone boat:)

Hi, Celeste, thank u for sharing a nice work. It reminds me of my own watercolour one made at a primary school time. I loved that subject. I should try it again!
Cheers, Sadami

I have been quite busy and have not done too much commenting but I have got to say the paintings in these last three posts are phenomenal! The paintings are not only well executed but each have such a strong emotional pull. Wow! Why I will always be a Celeste Bergin fan!

What a sweet painting Celeste. It reminds me of a summer when I was 13. I went from Kansas to New York to see my father and stayed all summer. Every weekend we went where he docked his big boat on Lake Ontario. He also had a row boat that I LOVED to take out onto the bay or into the pond. The oars would get tangled up in all the lily pads in the pond, but it was fun because there were so many critters to see. I remember laying on my top bunk in the cabin at night and hearing crickets and the water sounds against the boat. I would try to stay awake as long as I could because I loved it so much. It was a wonderful summer and it was then my love for water grew. Too bad I live in Kansas, right?

Thanks for jogging this sweet memory. :)

Boy, have I been out of touch. This painting is marvelous. Quiet, powerful, serene......it says so much. Peeking back, you have been doing some wonderful painting.

I loved the big shape painting--and this moored row boat. You're in a blue period I see. Your rain paintings are always a treat. I hope it wasn't really raining when you were painting. Enough with the wet stuff!

Watery, cool, moody and a bit lonely feeling - very Northwest! I don't know when or where this was painted but I'm seeing a theme in people's work lately - cooler colors and themes. Painters in hot July weather craving relief maybe? ;) Anyway I love the light here again - your stuff really has a glow lately - love this one so much! ♥
