I've just been thinking about size as it relates to two dimensional art. This painting could easily be wall-size. In fact, it's hard to believe it's really postcard size instead.

I now have your book. It was so worth the wait.

I was thinking the same thing. Either the weather must be terrible where you live, or you have given up going outside. Thank you for another beautiful landscape. By the way, I received your book recently. The full-sized reproductions are wonderful. The book (and your web site, and your paintings) is very inspirational to me.

julian, i wish you could have heard my intake of breath upon seeing the golden field....and especially after all the still lives.....such a lovely surprise.many thanks. gfs

Well I can see your done painting wonderful fiber......great job on "Barleyfield"

Pleasant day to you! Alexi

Your work is so beautiful! Just ordered your book so I can take more of it in! Thanks.


I can add to Graces Gasp - and you've given us the little stream so we can slake our thirst on this so brilliant summer day.

Sizzling effects: twinkling clouds,fragmented outlines of the woodsy hill and trees, echoing with the sizzling white dots in the foreground. Essential the segment of violet-blue road, with its tender green side, singing in unison with the warm field.At last, the "low-neckline" of yellow light field above the road, silently "talking" with the unhurried fleecy clouds.This painting reminds me in a way of the blurry "redness" of some Constable's landscapes.

Actually it's a lavender field not a road or a stream

Dear Julian,
What a beautiful and charming painting, full of
glorious color and light !! It GLOWS with the
beauty of LIFE !!!!!
I am still waiting for a 'special' time to open
your book, which I have received. I am going
to wait until my daughter and her family return
from a trip to the French country side. They are
vacationing in Cote Atlantic with her husband's
family. Thank you for all of the beauty you
have shared with us. I look for your paintings
every day. You cannot imagine what joy they
bring me !!!!!
