When Vermeerian colors and serpentine lines are transformed into sounds of music which miraculously create an exquisite Mozartian melody.
I smile at our similar approaches Julian. Have a look at these two that I painted a while back: http://richardbarrypaintings.blogspot.com/2010/09/clementine_17.html and http://richardbarrypaintings.blogspot.com/2010/10/orange-peel.html Very nice work - I love the blue.
Gosh, I need a glass of orange juice quick! This makes me feel soft island breezes, bright warm sunshine and the sweet/tart tang of a clementine. Beautiful little painting. And that blue is, as always gorgeous, especially with the orange.
I see the influence of your work in Venice on this one. Lovely, liquid and arching forms....nice
Exquisite as always. Takes my breathe away. Thank you so much, Julian for your daily masterpieces and the joy it brings...
I can smell the clementine and the light is wonderful! Must have been in the morning light.
I just appreciate, so much, the beauty that you see and share in your painting. They're like celebrations, like prayers...the simplest paintings of the most humble things just move me!
