Like a quiet still night...this is gorgeous...love the rich green grass against the water.

Your Sargent drawing in the precious post is awesome. I prefer those bullet sharpeners too!!

I'm thinking solitude, quietness, loss, and perhaps a deep sense of peace...all the feelings of blue. Nice job there Celeste. Really pretty. It almost looks a bit like a pastel too. :)

This is lovely, mysterious and magical.

How stunning!! I am reminded of the misty moors...A wee bit of spooky, like the Hounds of the Baskervilles. I love this one, Celeste! And I had pancakes.

My eye goes right to the bank. Quite a nice study. You can take off in several directions.

Your water just sparkles and I can almost hear it moving.

I like your Sargent drawing from Saturday--reminds me of Stallone.

Celeste,
Sorry I missed a few posts! So happy that I did't miss this one! Love it! The color is outstanding. Love the atmosphere! Compelled to look at it over and over again!
Bravo buddy!

Another winner - envious here because I have been struggling and you whipped this little beauty out in no time.

Bravo - you manage to say so much with such deceptive simplicity of subject. Beautiful work.

Dan Kent said...

The title is perfect because you can see the remnant of the days light on the water. Low key achieved!
