Fabulous painting. I particularly love the vase. Have a good trip.

Beautiful! Thank you.

Lovely! Enjoy your trip.

A beautiful welcome to Spring.
Good luck in Mali!

Very nice. This reminds me of when I was a very little girl. My mother had lovely irises growing next to the house. I was always fascinated by the complex flower. Thank you.

Enjoy your excursion and please make lots of paintings of your travels and share them!

Bonne Chance!

What a delightful painting! I do enjoy your emails. Thanks! and best wishes for your trip.

A beautiful picture to wake up to on Easter Morning. Thank you and have a wonderful trip.

superb painting!

All the best for your trip to Africa and your quest

Oh Julian, what a beautiful treat you've given us! Thank you for such a lovely painting. Bon Voyage, and Peace to you and your wife, ...C

May your exploratory visit be pleasing and pleasurable in every way. I'll be thinking of you, both of you, and I take it that "exploratory" means that a beautiful Mali baby might be in the offing?? Gorgeous painting -- and I, too, love the vase! Ciao, chers amis. Ernesto has his biopsy tomorrow.

Thanks for posting the lovely picture. Easter blessings to you and yours and have a great trip.

May all your wishes come true, trust you have a wonderful trip to Mali. Just wondered if everything goes as you wish maybe it will become a 'weekly blog' a painting a week! It's amazing how you have no time once a baby comes along....... the iris are beautiful

Good luck in Mali, Julian.

Iris - messenger of the gods ! - sublime - Have a great journey !
cheers. Von

A very beautiful and powerful painting Julian. I especially like the way you've painted the glass. Looking forward to the next one. Cheers.

When I opened your site the fragrance from the iris filled my office. You truly captured the velvet texture of the petals as well. I have no words to discribe the vase other than "perfect" balance for the long stem showing. The paring of the aqua glass with the purple of the flower is like a kiss. Thank you for the rush!

well , after twenty comments , just had to add my twobits... impeccable sense of shape is what grabbed me ...lovelygorgeousbeautifulthankyou !

Absolutely lovely.

Julian,

Your faithful audience misses you!

Yes, we are missing you and the beauty you share with us each day. Trust all is well and you are having a good rest.

maybe we need to send out a posse.
