vive provence and the sunshine!
beautiful composition, great value
in color!

Oh, how I love those blue Provencal windows and doors!!! The "short-cropping" of it with flowers and shadows on that crackedly wall is sublime! Mais que c'est beau! The painting somehow contains ALL of Provence in it. It's beautiful, Maitre Maestro.

The textures are dead-on. The shutter looks to have years of encrusted paint. Very sharp.

Congratulations on your 900th posted painting, Julian! And, as usual, it's beautiful.

Ah . . . the warm transparency of the shadow is perfect against the cool opacity of the shutter - and the textures - love it!

Congratulations to our wonderful son on reaching this apparently impossible figure of 900 postcards. We are so proud of you!
You bring back to us the memories of your house and lifestyle. Congratulations also to your posting staff.
Without you, our dear Ruth - where would he be?

What a joyful painting! This is simply Wonderful! Thanks for bringing it to us.
