Monday.....Labor Day!

It's day 4 of the Pacific NW Plein Air event. The spot for the day was Mayer State Park. I also stopped at Rowena and Memaloose overlooks on the way back. To see a slideshow of the day.....go HERE

Hey....how is your day going?

Bonjour,

Comme prévu, après mes longues semaines éloignées des blogs, me revoici parmi vous ! Vous m'avez beaucoup manqué...
Je suis heureuse d'ouvrir aujourd'hui la page de votre dernière publication.
Une peinture avec un ciel comme j'aime !... Une belle ouverture donc...
Des nuances de bleus étonnants...
Je vous sens enthousiaste et gaie.

Un merci particulier pour ce petit coucou sur mon blog et l'intérêt que vous me portez, cela me touche.

Gros bisous à vous.

Hi Celeste,
It's a beautiful painting. Reminds me of the water color here! I don't care if it's artistic license or reality--I love it!
Sounds like you had a really great time and your work reflects it.
Congratulations on another triumphant outing.
Sincerely,
Gary.

This is absolutely stunning, Celeste. Very loose and abstract but still obviously a landscape. And that palette! My goodness but that is gorgeous!!

that is beautiful! love the clouds.

David Starr said...

Celeste, just catching up with your blog. You are doing some excellent paintings. Such a light filled quality. Keep up the good work.

Helen Moreda said...

Sorry Celeste.........16 x 6 is probably not a study. How's just beautiful?

Celeste Bergin said...

Thanks, Helen, David, Sheryl, Sherry, Gary, Martine and Hallie! I appreciate the visit and comment!

Helen, it is 16x8..and this is a detail--I'll post the whole thing in the future. :)

What an outstanding time you're having and it shows in your work. Lately, skies seem to be your forte. Excellent renditions every one you've shown.

The fluid strokes are a beautiful tribute to several full days of painting. The color harmony is gorgeous.
I enjoyed the slide show - thanks.

Love the blue laid back mood of this one Celeste. Your last several paintings are so great...loved the sunflower one especially.
