Honorable Mention Award in PATTERNS 2017 EXHIBITION at Exhibitions Without Walls

I’m delighted to share some good news! My dahlia photograph, Purple Rain (a tribute to Prince), was awarded an Honorable Mention in the PATTERNS 2017 juried competition at Exhibitions Without Walls. The online exhibition went live today at Exhibitions Without Walls. It’s definitely worth a visit to see the top three winners, the special recognition award, the five honorable mentions, and all other entries that were selected for the final round of judging. I am very happy to have done this well in such a high-quality field of digital art and photography.

Limited time on RB for a while

I’m not able to spend much time at the computer, thanks to a fall last Thursday. At least there are no broken bones, but I am experiencing pain and somewhat limited movement. I was already behind on RB before this happened, and it looks as if I won’t be catching up very soon. So sorry to all who have been kind enough to leave comments on my works!

My Work in "Free for All 2017" Exhibition at Exhibitions Without Walls (link corrected)

Exhibitions Without Walls, a virtual online gallery space, sent out a call recently for a single work (photograph or traditional media) within the theme “Something New.” The aim was to attract recent works in which the artist used new techniques or pursued new subject matter. The final selection was juried for an online exhibition, and I was fortunate that my entry made the cut.

The Free for All 2017 exhibition is now online. My entry is on the first page and also below. The entire exhibition spans six pages and is definitely worth a tour.

Saying goodbye is never easy - farewell, sweet Taffy

The pets who bring so much joy to our lives inevitably bring sadness as well, for their lives are so much shorter than ours. For me, that reality is ever more salient now in my senior years as I had to say goodbye to my sweet Taffy, who had been with me for more than twelve years.…

Taffy began life as a feral kitten, born on a large industrial property belonging to a petroleum pipeline company and housing an office building where I used to work. A friend and co-worker (and an amazing champion of cats in need – kudos, Gabi!) rescued Taffy when the kitten’s parents were killed by coyotes. I later adopted Taffy when she was about a year old from my friend, who had a few too many cats to care for.

Taffy joined my existing family of two cats and became notorious for trying to steal their wet fo

Catching up on overdue "thank yous" for late 2016 sales

I really am running late! It’s the new year already, and I’m just now offering a belated “thank you” to buyers of my designs in late 2016. All buyers were anonymous, purchased a variety of designs and products, and came from several countries: USA, UK, Australia and Germany. Thank you all for helping make 2016 a really good year for me on Redbubble!…

Interview and samples of my work online at Exhibitions Without Walls

I was recently honored with a request for an interview to accompany a showing of my work at the Exhibitions Without Walls website, and that feature is now live. I think the site did a great job of presenting the interview together with a sampling of my photographs. I invite you to take a look for yourself at the two-page feature here (click on “INTERVIEW WITH CELESTE MOOKHERJEE” at the bottom of the first page to proceed to the second page). Comments are welcome on the EWW site, as it would be good for them to see an influx of visitors and comments from Redbubble. :)

Apologies for infrequent commenting

I have been dealing with some personal health issues for some time now and have been unable to keep up with commenting on all of my contacts’ new posts. I apologize, but I can only do so much.

Most, perhaps all of you, will understand because there are times when events in our personal lives must take precedence over Redbubble, no matter how much we love and value our art friends here.

Thank you for understanding.

A big 'thank you' to recent purchasers

I’m catching up again, saying thanks to those who purchased the items below. The pillows all went to buyers in the UK and the sticker to someone in the USA. Thank you very much!
