Diable que c'est bon une peinture si concr�te, toute en chair, p�trie d'�me, nourrie d'�motion et d'humilit�! et l'effet est d'autant plus surprenant qu'on le d�couvre sur ce support compl�tement d�sincarn� qu'est l'ordinateur!

Merci de faire partager votre go�t, votre amour de la vie, dans ses moindres manifestations.

Taste of spring - plump cadmium and cobalt (?) green; London markets have lots of unripe strawberries just now - fit only to be doused in red wine/balsamic vinegar/ honey then well cooked.

These are just beautiful.
I wanted to let you know "Lemon" arrived and it is more wonderful than I hoped. The color was very close to my screen image. We must have similar settings. The brushwork is very inspiring, hope to get a Provence landscape in the future. Best regards, Stephen
