So much fun! What does your toothpaste look like?
Hi Jules, just wanted to say that the line-up of the last 5 postcards all in a row at the bottom of the page is particularly stunning, each solitary item, including your head, so plucky and strong... This tube will look great there tomorrow too. Love, Jules xx
Hey Julia, possibly the single item motif is a response to Ruth being away on tour and me being all on me lonesome... aaaah
That is right on.
It's also an antique ;)
Got to love the good, old-fashioned poisonous Flake White. Up close I said, "This is neat, looks kind of abstract," while from a few feet away, husband said "wow, that looks exactly like a tube of paint."
ah, if anything speaks and smells and sings of home, this flake white is it! great fun.
Julian, as always great to see your inspirational work. The tube is superbly done.Your still lives are really growing on me after my initial antipathy.
