I've been painting on Saturdays at "Fine Art Saturday". Today the model wore a big beautiful sun hat. This is after a few hours. I might resolve it further, because I think it is a good start. 
The weather is starting to be really nice here in Portland, so I hope to start painting outdoors soon too. What have you been doing? I'll go check out some blogs now. 

(Painting) Celeste Bergin, Model S, oil on 16x20 canvas sheet

Love the hat - as you said, start so hope you finish it and let us see it.
I enjoyed seeing the previous post and likes every single one of the paintings but LOVED the "hair" one!
Really sorry to read your recovery from the sinus op was so difficult. I had a friend who said exactly the same thing. It all will be worth it. She is very happy she had it done.

Hi, Celeste, your oil painting always interests me, a watercolourist. I hope you'll enjoy the work. Best wishes, Sadami

Just checking in on you, Celeste. Sounds like you are back in the swing and looking forward to getting out into Nature with paint and canvas soon. What could be more healing? We are lucky women to have this passion. Take care.
