why is no one commenting on this? It is luscious. perhaps we are very spoiled by this time.i only wish my comments could do your work justice- you've really ennobled the humble fruits and veggies, not to mention the landscapes and portraits in a unique way. thank you, again and again !....perhaps youve asked people to stop this ranting about your work, and i have missed it ...

Hi mariah, no I don't mind people ranting, I think it's probably people are just plain commented out, but thanks for your concern!!

i wonder, too, why more paintings dont have lots more comments but perhaps viewers are like me and just dont bother tho i have admired these past few still lifes tremendously. thanks again and again.

I think we comment the paintings , sincerely, not mechanically; The wish for writing is more than trivial. Do you agree with me, Julian? So about this painting, I appreciate at first the rising diagonal of the fruits ,the trembling contour of the apricots and the warm transparency of them; at last the little black stalk of the second fruit, which is the axis of the picture and quickly drawing our attention. I feel a discreet shiver of life empurpling this humble " nature morte".

It's also interesting to note that close to the black stalk, there is a shiny yellow- orange spoton the right side and on the other one of the stalk, a thin line of light blue ultramarine which is its accurate complementary colour. Enjoyment for the eyes. Sometimes, it takes a long time to uncover the secrets of a work of art, but anyway it is inhexaustible...Unfathomable art. Magic.Thank you master.

alain, your comments are often a revelation too! thank you for sharing with us what you see. I find it fascinating and it brings even more life to Julian's project.

Thanks, ruth for your nice reaction.I can't wait for...to morrow!

hehe.. i was hoping alain would comment...they're wonderful- apoem about the art.thank you too.

Your art brings pleasure to my life daily. You are truly an incredible artist. I love each and every one, most especially the still lifes. You never seem to run out of wonderful ideas...........Keep them coming!
