Elegantly and fabulously beautiful.

Julian this is simply gorgeous! I can feel the pink velvet, love the edges between -or the lack thereof -the glass vase and the background... the negative shapes in the vase and the diagonals of the leaves is masterful!

All I can say is, wow. (Such a profound comment, eh?) But it's incredible. The glass. How does one paint transparency? Or the heady scent of roses? However it happens, you've done it.

Hello Julian,

I love the roses. It is so lovely the way you used a similar background, but muted It and made the roses full of light against it.



Shades of Fantin-Latour...WOW!

Julian- I am struck by you ability to move your focus from near to far. Your dark and intimate still lifes have served as a prelude to this one - it is full of light and air and has a serene presence that is breath-taking. Thank you.

I miss you my sweet
And this bunch of roses
Reminds me of you.
So sweet-scented.
Your lips like these petals
Were made of barley sugar
Your skin like these leaves
Were made of almond paste
Your hair like these stems
Made of marshmallow.
O You my Sweetheart, who smelt
Like the wall behind the bunch,
Pink meringue,
You are living now
Among the angels of light.
I hug these flowers and I remind of

I adore your roses
