Mr. Smith, I've resisted the urge to write many times in the last few years since discovering your work, mainly, because I feel incapable of surpassing the many accolades you receive daily. My wife and I lived for nearly two years in Italy, near the small town of Pitigliano. Many of the scenes you paint of Provence are so evocative of that place I can almost smell the country air, hear the sounds and feel the warm Tuscan light. Your work makes my day and I am in awe of your color sense, atmospheric perspective and design skills, especially on such a small format. I hope before I am too old to travel, a museum will be established to show your work. I would do whatever it would take to see your magnificent paintings in person. Thank you for sharing with the world. Sincerely, Gary.
The shadows, the shutter, the seeming ease of execution are all quite wonderful. Shirley
I can't resist the urge. This painting is beautiful. It captures the fleeting light on plant stems and leaves, the fragile sparkle that brings delight to anyone who has sauntered down such a road in reality or in dreams. Even the sky holes and shadows sparkle.
Diffracted lights Bursts of lights Supernatural radiations... Myriad of sparkling stars and suns Looking like white and yellow wildflowers... Even the signature of Julian is metamorphosed In meadow grass! I'm sure this scene is not terrestrial! But a parallel Universe, And Julian is our eyewitness. The sky,road, shadows,cabanon Everything almost is blue it goes without saying! (Some E.T farmers tell that An angel is living inside the house... One can see incidentally his(her?)luminous wings drying on the roof) Even for the credibility There is an electric (or telephone) pole! Good heavens! Thanks to Julian We are tonight transported to heaven! Night-night!
Love the sunny brightness of this painting and the blue and green colours.
interesting, so many cool colors and this impression of a very warm day
great great painting--I particularly love the blue shadows on the road, even the two tiny blue brushstrokes before the road bends left, and the interplay with the blue window.
Hi Julian I see the artist but not his shadow as I might in a photograph. Thanks for this artfully composed pathway.
LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank-you so much!!!! Claudia-Marie
