Julian, this is absolutely exquisite! Your dinner doesn't sound too shabby, either...
Such a dramatic atmosphere. Fighting the invading darkness, trying to exist, against the insidious Nothingness : it is the desperate bet here... The stalks are going to disappear... A lugubrious atmosphere. Heart-rending. Metaphysical.
Julian, just wonderful color and values.
beautiful julian!
Wonderfully daring to leave so much painterly dark space on one side of the painting.. and such an intimate "portrait" of your "first grown" Terrific Julian!
Another stunner! Truly good enough to eat!!!
Love it. Turnips are such a great-looking vegetable. Too bad they spend most of their days hidden in the ground!
Beautiful classic composition. The purple/violet and the greens makes a stunning color combination.
