Everyday a striking picturing. To day a vivid image. Bold geometry. The light on the wall creating a dual space in the background, forcing me to dream up. And that so celestial blue colour. Puzzling, Julian.
Another beauty, Julian. I like the push and pull of it...the way the objects rise and fall within the composition and how they "jump out" and recede within the shadows.
Love the mystery of the deep, deep, shadows!
But, who on earth is this Alain, who comments EVERY painting? He doesn't look like real....
I, for one , so appreciate Alain's vision- he helps me to see more, Cindy- you owe him an apology.
Bizarre... This morning, I don't see my reflection in the mirror.... I'm going to call my attending physician. Don't worry Mariah, I am not "hurting", it shouldn't be serious.
bien , alain... as for Cindy,this blog is for Julian's art , not to take shots at others' comments... apologies , Julian, and Merry Christmas to you and to Ruth and les chats aussi.
Dear Alain, thank you for the reassurances.Your comments are wonderful, fascinating, poetic and full of vision- i think we most of us are grateful that you share that beauty of soul with us , which only enhances Julian's work..the blue on that mug is out of this world!
A wonderful painting! I love the reflection off of the blue cup.
