There's a wonderful sense of a never-ending expanse in this, I can feel it drawing me in...

What lovely subtle colours, and, I especially love the sparse use of an 'edge' in the composition. Less is more - something I need to constantly remember.

My book just arrived in Augusta, Georgia USA. I flipped through immediately looking for old favorites! Perfect! Thanks, Julian.


The light!

I do have trouble believing they are that size they seem so much bigger. But then I was real surprised to find out how small Van Gogh's sunflowers were. Yours effect me the same way. Like if I turn my head a bit I'll see even more.

PS I keep clicking back to the hay wagon. Just to make sure the top bales haven't toppled. Keeps me in suspense.

Your book has arrived and in reading the forward tonight, I learned for the first time that there are comments under each of the paintings you post. I have always been so engrossed by the works themselves that I never thought to scroll down. What a wonderful double treat - beautiful artwork and the interesting and thoughtful words of my fellow fans. The book, by the way, is exquisite. Thank you.

J'ai l'impression, Julian, d'�tre dans un train et que je regarde pench� un peu hors de la fen�tre ce merveilleux paysage d�filer vers l'arri�re et la montagne lapis-lazuli et le champ de miel se rejoindre dans un flot d'�cume!

sorry, was traveling and would have submitted a comment earlier. Mr. Walton--you are missing the whole point--kiss off. Alain, don't change a damn thing. Julian, as always, thank you.

Thank you, Mr Shapiro.
And this is not the first time you show your benevolence.
All the best

I just received your book and wanted to let you know how wonderful it is! I recently started a daily painting blo9g, after being inspired you and also Carol Marine. I am still trying settle on a surface I am happy with. You said in your book that it is acrylic primed cardboard- what do you mean by cardboard? Also, I assume you sell them unframed- do you give advise to people on how to frame them?
Thank you for sharing your work with all of us!

Happy to say I have received my subscriber copy of "the book". It arrived over this past weekend. What a delight! It must have been incredibly hard to choose the final selections. I would not have been able to do it. I would still be deciding.


PS. I agree with Mr Shapiro's sentiments 100%, Thank You.

I just came back from a long drive throught upstate NY and rural Ontario (Canada). Julian your recent paintings made my eye take in the yellow fields that were everywhere around me. As I drove into Toronto, the evening sky was a contrast of intense colours. I just wish you were here to paint it all and preserve it. Thanks for teaching me to see the world around me.

For me, the paintings bring a joyful, colorful spark to my day, for a few minutes each morning I can leave my grey wintery world and dream of sunshine and fresh air, and abundance from the earth. For a few precious moments I can lose myself in Provence, (something I can take with me whatever the day here brings.....). I'm immensely grateful to you Julian, I am the proud owner of two of your 'gems' and now your beautiful book.


Julian - I have missed your paintings for the last few days. I hope you are well?

I got my book!! Love it, of course. These paintings make my day. sj
