That fiery bush is just stunning in its softness and color, Celeste. I wish I could see all of your submitted works for this show and I hope every last one of them sells!! You rock!

That one is dramatic! Love the contrast and the color:)

Wish I was there to see that show. I bet it will be fun!


What a wonderful event. I would be there in a nanosecond if I lived closer, canned goods in hand. The event sounds like fun!!!!

Your way with simple landscapes amazes me. They are colorful, easy on the eye, well composed. Very nice indeed.

Lovely painting and lovely prices! If this is the calibre through out, the paintings should be snapped up and the fundraiser, a huge success. Marvelous idea and very generous of all the Portland artists.
