Celeste - Finished Painting

I spent a good deal of my day today painting and it felt so good!
Meet Celeste. She really speaks to me. She is so calm.
I'm not sure what she is looking at or studying, but it certainly has captured her attention. Maybe she is at a concert and looking at the program...
I know I've said it before, but painting on a layer of plaster of paris is wonderful. It is so smooth and gives the whole painting such a different texture and finish. I love it!

I hope you had a great Tuesday!! I'm off to take a peek at your blogs...



  1. Liebe Silke,


    In herzlicher Verbundenheit


  2. I love her! It amazes me how well you can paint faces. They seem like one of the hardest subjects to master.

    I bet it feels good to be painting again. ☺

  3. How pretty, Silke! I love the texture of her hair!

  5. Liebe Silke,

    das ist wieder ein gelungenes Bild.

    Allerbeste Grüße


  6. Glad you are back in the swing of things.

    I think Celeste is possibly the first of your paintings that is not for me, though. She doesn't 'speak to me' like all the others. I wonder what it is about her that puts me off? I can't put my finger on it. But judging by the comments so far I'm going to be well in the minority!!
