Sunday!

This painting is from awhile back. I changed it some and may make a few more minor adjustments to it yet. I like the mysterious feeling and how it is telling a story...the viewer gets to decide what the story is. 

Painting: Celeste Bergin, The Conversation, oil on 12x9 canvas panel

I think it is the palette that adds to the mystery. Great job.

Bonjour chère Céleste,

J'aime pouvoir m'approprier une oeuvre en imaginant à chaque fois une histoire.
Et cette dernière autorise une belle évasion... La pluie et la présence de ce parapluie sont comme une fascinante enveloppe à une belle intimité.
Très jolie peinture.

Gros bisous ♡

It's a wonderful painting--I like the verticals behind the car.

I really like this painting. It is cool to touch up the oldies and make them better. Nice work

I like the way the figure on the left merges into the abstract shape. Neat, neat, neat one Celeste!

Love this one Celeste! Great atmosphere and mystery! Always wonderful to leave the viewer with "work" to do! (Oh, I finally did post a painting! Thanks for the gentle push!) Huge snow storm in Massachusetts right now!)
Brrrrrr!

This is a wonderful painting in so many ways. The composition, edges and values work perfectly in creating the mystery. Oh yes, I know the story....it's dark...she's probably leaving for good.

YES this is good, so impressionistic !

So many great posts here, Celeste. I learn so much every time I visit. The still life granny smith's a few posts back are distracting me from my current series of paintings. So many things to paint, so little time. Did the exercise change your ongoing approach?

I'm commenting on the current painting because I always find your genre pieces so evocative. I want to be out walking with that person under that umbrella. You've got that mastery of composition and the big shapes. I'm sure that's what first drew me to your work.

Great work, Celeste. Glad you're out there.
