How fauve of you maestro!
Great departure!

Way cool, Julian! I love how animated this is! Very, very different, and yes, as Leslee said, a great departure!!! For some reason, some of this brings Van Gogh to mind.

I'd love for you to paint what's around the bend tomorrow! Always exciting.

Jumps right out of the screen!

All that is worth anything in life comes down to these three things: Head, Heart & Hand. Sure we can debate the respective qualities of impressionism, fauvism, tonalism, and all the other isms. For me, it's a lot simpler than that. Yesterday's painting was great. The paintings before that were great. This one is great. My Head can make the academic distinctions, but my Heart says there's no great departure in style from Julian's Hand here. I just calls 'em like I sees 'em: great, great, great!

I definately see Cezanne in this one.

WOW Julian!! This is so full of rich color, lively brushwork and movement!! A pleasure to see!
