Beach Inspirations



 Oh I so enjoyed to design and paint these beautiful large oyster shells a few years ago.
 I love beach cottage decor and when mixed among  pink roses, it's all dreamy.



I will be inspired by these  paintings once again when I return soon to my studio.


 I will wish to drift away in this sail boat and return to this rose cottage by the sea. 
Where roses are planted and the water so blue. 
Where days are lazy and the nights full of stars that twinkle off the water.



Dreaming of vacation days
and
returning soon with lots of inspiration.





Blessings!

They are beautiful paintings. I would love to live in a rose cottage , just like the one you painted. Glad you are having some great inspiration. Can't wait to see your new designs and paintings!

Lovely painting.

Hope there's room in that sailboat for me, too. I'd love to sail away and then return to that beautiful cottage.

Wherever your sails take you, enjoy!

I love your work Celeste - as you know! Your roses are the prettiest I've ever seen. Almost every room in my house has one or MORE hand-painted pretties from your studio. Love 'em!

I'm just picturing myself to be living in that pretty cottage by the sea with the lovely roses in the yard! I'll just sail off to it in your sweet, little sailboat and then take a dip into the ocean. Thanks for letting me dream a little dream through your pretty painted shells, sweet friend! Love and hugs are sent to you! ❤️

I feel the most peaceful when I am by the seashore. Such lovely work. I do hope you are enjoying your time away. Have a wonderful flower filled week.

Your painted shells are just magical, Celestina! I just love your beachy scenes, as well as your gorgeous rose painted ones, too! I treasure mine, you are such a talent!

Kim said...

What beautiful pieces! I am a huge fan of shells and beach inspired artwork. I love the way you used a high gloss finish...just like the inside of the shell!

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Good Evening Dear Lady,
Well I know you are at the sea shore as I write this and I am so enjoying having the opportunity to be part of your vacation via FB.
I know they are just snippets, but never the less they are a joy to view.
Beautiful shells with the tenderest of paintings and I agree with Kim.
The high gloss finish is beyond perfect.
I so enjoyed hearing from you today, thank you!
With love,
Jemma

Rose L said...

You are a talented painter and these would probably sell well! Have you painted on rocks yet?

Draffin Bears said...

Dear Celestina Marie,

Your artwork is so beautiful and it is a lovely idea painting on the shell. The sweet cottage near the seaside and the sail boat all so dreamy and romantic.
Hope you have a happy week
Hugs

As always your work is so beautiful! A cottage by the sea, well, we are two long blocks to the lake and I have roses and the house is small like a cottage---maybe I have it already. (Ps bought a new rose bush yesterday and actually wondered how the 'fabrics' project of yours is coming along, as I want some pillows for the new bedroom. Have a great vacation...Sandi

Jill said...

They are all just beautiful but I am really drawn to the one that is a cottage...actually has me thinking of a whole little story for me to write. Inspiration comes from all over. You were so blessed with a great talent and it brings joy to others, thank you for sharing.

Blessings,
Jill

They really are so dreamy!!! I think I need some. I'll have to take a peek at your shop soon! I bet you came back from vacation with lots of beachy inspiration!

Feral Turtle said...

Those shells are the prettiest ones I have ever seen. Such an amazing artist you are! Hope you have a wonderful week my friend!

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Hi Celestina, those little shells are so beautiful. They make me feel like I could be in that little cottage, listening to the sound of the waves. Thank you for your kind words about my photos. Although I really enjoy using the camera to paint a picture, I would much rather be able to pick up a brush and do what you do..Have a wonderful weekend.. Judy

Consider It All Joy said...

You knew if you painted more beachy beauties that one of the pieces would be coming to live with me! Rest, relaxation and the beach can really give us a much needed restoration! So happy you had a great trip and were inspired to create a few new pieces. Blessings, Cindy xo

Stacey said...
