Three of us went plein air painting today in George Rogers park in Lake Oswego. The forecast for the next few days is rain, so we were glad to "may hay while the sun shines". There is a lot about this that I like and though it has a few "issues" ... I'm satisfied that I caught a certain something about the day.

To see what the others did...go HERE.

Trees, trees, and more trees! Beautiful! (This and the last two posts, too!) And I notice some really creative colors in these tree paintings - bolder, brighter, than I often see in your works.

I was thinking today about your ability to paint such very good paintings so frequently. I am in awe (as usual). Love what you do!

Bonjour ma chère Céleste,
La nature semble si pure après la pluie et nous offre de généreuses couleurs.
Une très belle étude.
Gros bisous

Wow, Celeste! I see nothing wrong with this piece whatsoever; no issues a't'all! I love the gorgeous springtime in the PNW colors and the addition of people in the distance is such a beautiful touch.

Ola Celeste! I so very much love the colors you have been choosing in your last two posts! Great light also in this piece. Glad you got out to paint before the rains. Maybe it would be fun to paint outdoors in the rain. What is really odd is that I don't think I am kidding. I just may try that! Great work buddy!
Your very colorful tree loving art buddy!
Michael, Who May Be Getting A Huge Spring Snow Storm Tonight!

I really really like this painting Celeste. It gives me a happy feeling looking through and past those trees and into the light with all the colors and the shapes. It is full of life and movement. You are on a roll. Loving your tree sketches.
