Come on , Julian - How about 1 self-portrait that lets your fans know about your dimples! :-D

Love it. Julian you must be twins...no one person could paint masterpieces every day. :-)

Every painter will recognise this "mad" artists stare.

Our Painter.
That is the portrait of a kind man
Whom the look is full of humanness.
But this look belongs to
A Condottiere (O Venice!)too
Full of strength and single-mindedness.
The reading-glasses put down
Like these of the old Chardin...
Some thin wrinkles tearing
down his face
Show the hard work.
How painting is exhausting !
This man has his head
Lost in the sky
And the first star is lighting up
In his eye !

It is nice to see the person whose art I get to enjoy each day. Keep up the good work.
Patti
