I like the way the spots of light in the dark foliage mirror the same on the building, leading the viewers eye. Nice piece.

I can tell by this painting that summer is at it's end. That is really amazing that you can tell that from a painting! Or am I wrong? I can see you standing there with an extra coat on and paint this beautiful painting. I truly admire your colors. And I admire you for your persistence (as well as other daily painters...). Do you realize that you have 25 to go for the big 1000? It is a great tour de force! Thank you for your inspiration, Julian!

I wish I wasn't so broke I could Just buy this one.
it's amazing the feeling this one give you.
Just beautiful !

just when you are hoping that noone else will see this so you can have a shot...not a chance with this beautiful signature piece. those greens are gorgeous!

Perfect morning colours, PLEASE make this a print!!!

Simply stunning!!

Very nice work! I was wondering how you photograph your pieces. Do you do it yourself, or do you have it done by a professional photographer? If self-photographed, what kind of camera is used?

I really enjoy your pieces, and I am inspired by your skill.

Thank you,


Linda, the pieces are photographed as soon as I've finished and posted pretty well straight to the web after straightening, cropping etc. in Photoshop. I use a Canon DSLR, tripod and lights (when necessary).

I miss Alain's poetic interpretations...we must never discourage a poet! Alain always finds unique and personal visions within Julian's lovely paintings. Vive la poesie!

Thank you, Janet, for saying what needed to be said so well! I'm missing Alain too!
