Happy New Year--!

I took a little time off of blogging...it's been fun to just kick back and enjoy the holiday....but now I'm back! This afternoon Dave B set up my "new" television and dvd player in "der Bunker" (the basement studio). It will be great for watching art dvds. Thanks, Dave Gallup! --(Dave bequeathed the television and dvd player to me when he moved away).

This is an old painting that I touched up. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and that you are looking forward (like I am) to the New Year!

(Painting) Celeste Bergin, The Path, oil on 12x9 canvas panel

I have a TV in my studio also. It's great for watching art DVDs (thanks Peggi kroll Roberts!) and for listening to music.

Hope you had a lovely vacation!

The path seems such a nice introduction to 2015. Fun to see and enjoy each of our paths for the new year. Lovely sense of light and color in this one Celeste.

Happy new year! Glad to hear that your time off was for pleasure. Like Sheryl, I would love to walk down that path. I love the leaves against the sky. Feels like the wind is blowing.

Happy New year!

I see they have English country lanes in the US. Nice work.

Enjoy the new studio!

This is simply beautiful, Celeste. Whatever you added or subtracted must've been perfect, because the painting really sings.

Happy New Year Celeste! The pathway is a perfect image as we walk on to a new year wondering what new challenges are waiting for us around the next bend in the road. Let's hope there are good things ahead for all of us.
