J this is just beautiful ...I don;t know what to say apart from that - something to do with the limpness of the draped leaves ...wish I could afford it!! Bx
Simply perfect--composition of apricot, leaves, and stem. Evokes Provençal memories. Thank you.
Julian - this is delicious - the diagonal in contrast to the vertical stem - who's orchard do you sneak into in the middle of the night?? FYI mine says this is sold already but I'm sure it's not...
Thanks Barbara and Jo, actually (Jennifer), I picked them yesterday from the orchard just out front and in the middle of the day - I guess no one is going to complain about the odd apricot taken for a still life! So the leaves in their limpness are a day old and somehow better for it. Julian
The most gorgeous piece of fruit. I feel I could just pick it up off the table and slice off a piece. I believe this is my favorite still life you have done. So classic in depth of color palette and composition.
Perfection in every sense. Hope it tasted as good as it looks... Bravo again, J.
Hi Julian Looking at the apricot, I sensed that it probably tastes like one; so many I buy have no taste at all. It is really lovely. Barbara M
This is just perfect. It almost makes me regret the purchase of yesterday's painting.
Julian: I was wondering what the image would be for 7/7/07 - my birthday. The apricot is beautiful and brings back nice memories of seeing such fruit at the market when I lived in Aix-en-Provence for several years. Question: Does one still bid on a painting? If so, what is the process? I've scoured your website and can't seem to find the information for trying to purchase one of your original daily paintings. Thanks.
Beautifully done!
