I love it Julian! the paint, the color...the composition.
On all levels a gift to me. Thank you.

Diebenkorn--one of my favorite painters. I like your take on this egg and surface! Thank you.

Hi Julian

What is a Deibenkorn? Lovely colours but need to know what it is!

Julian, you're brilliant. I love this!!! Totally unexpected and simply gorgeous...

I silently thank you every day for these paintings. This one made me laugh...

I live in Berkeley CA and Diebenkorn's daughter was a neighbor of mine (her daughter babysat my children)—I didn't know who her father was yet I was invited to see the collection displayed throughout her home of his paintings. I didn't understand the art and couldn't figure out a nice way of excusing myself away from this opportunity that I then considered an awkward neighborly obligation.


To shorten this long story.. I went back to college, loved my art history class and wrote all my papers on Diebenkorn— and then took up painting myself.


At times with frustration, I cry, at my lack of talent and resulting frustration -but nonetheless I truly love it and now have many painter friends. Please know that we love your postcards and are inspired by your work.


Julian,
Fabulous! What a coincidence, I was just at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art yesterday, looking at a Diebenkorn! Love this image and concept.

Dearest boy, just love it. I think the egg looks more abstract than the Diebenkorn. Just looking for my wallet right now, oh, oh!

Simply love Diebenkorn - one of my all-time favorite artists - an abstract artist that I totally "get" and now see that you, too, appreciate his work!

Thanks for the explanation - I will now investigate his work.
