Mt Tabor Tuesday

The little cigar-pochade box is so compact! Perfect for doing small sketches.

Bonjour ma chère Céleste,

C'est génialement bien pensé ! et pratique de surcroît !
Une très jolie capture artistique. Des tonalités automnales qui convolent merveilleusement bien.
Gros bisous

You always capture the bands of value and color brilliantly in your landscapes, Celeste.
Who was the photographer for this one? I like the heart on your butt!

Great fall palette. Very fresh.

I think this is a beautiful painting and again, makes me miss my beloved Pacific Northwest. Beautiful autumn colors and a peek of blue sky, mountains in the distance and trees galore. My dream location. Lovely work, Celeste!!

How do you protect the wet canvas when you want to leave. Do you have a separate container?

Yah, Tabor Tuesday! Looks like a beautiful view and a nifty setup. Nice to get out while it isn't raining.

You look so cute out there in nature…at ease yet concentrating.

Your paint quality is very rich,,,thick, strong, vibrant, lively and completely fresh.

Another lovely painting to see on your blog today. Today the sun is shining up here above your border in Vancouver. I assume you have sun and freezing temperatures too. But I have a feeling you will be painting out there rain or shine or cold.

Your en plein air oil sketches are superb! You are a master of your medium. And, btw, I love - love - your latest Sargent sketch. A painting version of it would be great.
