Excellent work, Julian! I love the faint, reflected light on the lemon in the back. Nice touch.

I only discovered Postcard from Provence by chance yesterday evening. Then I spent the rest of the evening viewing the archive. Wonderful paintings of an area we know quite well - and super still lifes.

Julian, what a protean painter you are !

Hi Julian Your still-life paintings of fruit and vegetables make me realize that I should look more carefully at the colour of the real ones as the light picks up and creates variations in the colour of the skins. Thanks for this and others.

I must say (hm, like I haven't already a hundred times....) I LOVE your still lifes. Love them.

khm, and that would be 'lives'...

...et moi aussi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The plural of "still life" is actually "still lifes"

Julian - I love all your paintings!
