Again, beautiful.

My favorite painting yet--but, not for sale! Is this an April Fools trick?!?

I was looking forward to some flowers. Beautiful and loose.

Beautiful again, I wish I can have it! Maybe one day!

Lovely and ethereal, Julian. What a beautiful, delicate springtime study. How perfect for the beginning of April. You just made my day!

NFS =- Not For Sale

n'est-ce pas?

I hope you painted flowers for your wife....

I liked the relation of cragginess, roughness in the broken lines of the twigs and the curves of the petals, which were not just pale and curved, but also had an interrruped line on their eges. The way opposites, as I have learned from Aesthetic Realism are so subtly one in a good work is always a pleasureto see. I enjoyed this little painting very much.


So delicate and beautiful.

I have always had a soft spot for almond blossoms, particularly Van Gogh's treatment.

"Almond Blossoms" for me. YES, it is wonderful; Julian, You are wonderful.
Spring couldn't arrive more beautifully. I love you.


As always, absolutely stunning. And the "Not For Sale" makes it the perfect postcard for April Fool's Day. But I'm just thrilled to receive my daily postcard and see your fabulous work. It's a wonderful way to start the day!

I would like to buy some of your flower postcards - can I commission them

I am an interior designer and can't depend on being the first one on the computer-for me it's a business

Hope to hear from you-
I love what you have up today, although sadly not for sale, and also love the flower postcards from the past - these are exactly what I would like to purchase
