Oh boy! She sure is pretty, Celeste! I like the unfinished edges...to me it symbolizes the transience of life itself.

I love a zorn palette. It really makes me concentrate on colour and always amazes me on just what colours can be created with such a limited palette.

Always enjoy the Thursday meeting! The notes were especially interesting this time. Reading people's thoughts on showing their work provided some actual insight so thanks!

I am drawn to the beautiful cool shadows on her hat and skin. They vibrate so beautifully next to the warm flesh tones.

Hello Celeste!
Love all your latest works!
Love the very, very colorful landscape! Glad to see that it was sold! Good for you!
I so much enjoy the ballerina! Great skill! Love the pose! Very dramatic! Nice!
Now to your portraits! They are magnificent! Thought of you today! The MFA is opening a show on Sargent's watercolors this week! I recall you being a huge Sargent fan!
Take care Celeste!
Michael
