Cool, Jules, Major declares if brilliant. Verismo French market... xx
Very cool. Julian! Love the plastic bag effects.
With the incorporation of plastic, you have made a truly contemporary still life..
fabulous! love it, beautifully painted
Brilliant. Thank you. I wonder whether you are an admirer of Prosper Marilhat. His painting of 1836 of Avignon was an unexpected delight a few years back at an exhibit of pantings of Provence at the Fine Arts in Montreal.
fun. fresh.
fun and fresh.
who would think that a plastic bag could be so fascinating? beautifully done, julian....now how about black olives? gfs
Simply Great, Julian .... and Greatest things are the simpliest ones !!!
Julian: We have an expression when someone has done a great job. We say, "He nailed it!" In this case I would prefer to say, " He really bagged it!"
You can almost hear the grapes making squeaky complaints of their confinement,literally, against the plastic wrappings........
You really bagged it, pal! I've always been fascinated by your usages of whites! Fabulous! You Brits also say "spot on," n'est-ce pas?
Staggering! Like flashes of lightening streaking the background. It reminds me of some details like embroideries painted by Hals or Velasquez. Virtuoso brushstrokes!
Holy Shit! This is surreal, it's so beautiful and contemporary. I love it!
Literally gasped when I opened the picture, so unexpected, to be confronted with a plastic bag that looks like an Old Master painted it (well, a New Master, for sure)!
I love paintings of things in plastic bags, well done Julian
Ahh, that's what I miss the most about Provence, those amazing, delicious olives. This is a beautiful painting. Thanks.
