Just beautiful! The orange and blue juxtaposed are singing, and I love the rich dark green of the leaves. Nice drama from the dark background too!

I love it! Clementines with their green foliage are my favorite motives.

WOW!! Julian this is beautiful!

Masterful use of color and balance.

A very sweet, gentle, balanced & cool picture!

Arcs, tangents, circles, lines, spheres and all manner of things geometrical. Makes me want to sing another song, with painful apologies:

"You' re very good at setting things for painting based on shape and size;
"Your blue stripe at the ready, paired in contrast for our watchful eyes;
"In short, in matters beautiful and textural and colorful,
"You are the very model of an artist (compositional)."

no one does green and blue like julian. incredible midnight background color as well.

Absolutely gorgeous.

Beautiful, beautiful, Julian! Gary, I just love you. You are such a delight - no need to apologize for your "song". I love it. You and Julian both bring joy to my day! Thank you...!

L-O-V-E-L-Y! The indigo background and the color of the leaves beautifully balances the richness of the orange of the clementine.I also like the lightness of the cloth which offsets the depth of the aforementioned...

Exquisite. I missed out on the last Clementine - don't fail me now web browser.

I like the flair of this orange Clementine with its marked dent opposing the green leaf on theleft, and the assymmetry of the fruit stem and the cloth blue stripe. Solidity, the weight of the fruit and the lightness of the cloth, wven with its shadows have those opposites-Heaviness and Lightness that always please us when they work together.I learned from Eli Siegel's Fifteen Questions, "Is Beauty the Making One of Opposites?"--they are crucial in having us feel a work is successful, and in our feeling pleased by a work. I do wonder about the blackness of the upper part, but perhaps that is a fault of the reproduction. Meanwhile, I enjoy these works every day as I look at them.

i would like to buy this painting.

i would like to buy this painting.

george h, that is a very lovely slip of the typewriter. or is it?

things are improving here (julian up since 4 am trying to deal with the problem) but (oops) george and glenn, read the purchase tab, and soon the purchase tab should reappear. fingers crossed. hang in there.

oops i mean the purchase button. sorry. pissed again, in the european sense.

Tried to purchase at 4 pm EST but no "purchase" sign appeared on the permalink.

4:00 EDT came and went. No [purchase] icon displayed. Not sure if this is more frustrating than not winning the daily painting.

another beautiful image julian, but what became of the 4:00pm sale time? thanks, nora

Sorry all, I've had some terrible problems with the mailling list and site crashing over the last few days but all seemed to go normally today. The site seems to be running a little slow so that may be the problem with those who didn't get the purchase button to display.

it's the painting that can't be sold!!!

Once again you've made me drool over your paintings. This is great, I love that blue line going down to the bottom of the picture and how it relates to the angle of the stem. Great work, I admire your painterly style.

If this piece hasn't sold I would love to purchase it. Thank you for doing such beautiful work..........

What happened with this painting? No "sold" sign. Thank goodness we can purchase as a print.
