this took my breath away......

Gorgeous!!! Funny, yesterday while eating a blood orange, I was wondering when you would paint another partially peeled blood orange...I guess you read my mind, or vice verse! This is really, really beautiful and mysterious, Julian. Love it!

I like the light especially well. The way the peeling recedes into the shadows is quite nicely done. The entire painting is, really. As usual.

So beautiful. You have such a great eye for composition. Even when it's just one object in your painting, you know how to make it interesting. The highlights on the peeled segment make the orange look extremely juicy.

Julian, you are making the ordinary extraordinary as usual! This is just lovely.I agree with Brian and Silvina You have been an inspiration. Thank you.

And tomorrow...?

I like all the lighting changes which occur in the rind of the upper peel.

Another really nice one Julian
