Those look like rain clouds to me!

Tanah Lot is one of my favourite places on Bali - but after the majority of people have gone home!

What did you think of the temple?

Beautiful paintings as usual, but have just made the mistake of reading blog about the poor puppies whilst in the office and being reduced to tears. Oh dear, - not sure I could get over that...

Beautiful paintings as usual, it looks ravishingly lush - but have just made the mistake of reading blog about the poor puppies whilst in the office and being reduced to tears. Oh dear, - not sure I could get over that...

The palm trees set this painting off. Very well done. It feels steamy and hot.

sorry for repetition - kept getting error message after pressing submit button

I love the last two paintings you have done at Bali Julian. You have really captured the essence of a peaceful tropical paradise.

I woke to 25 degrees this morning. This painting gave me that "take me away-Calgon bath moment" ahh

simply beautiful paintings. i have always wanted to paint in bali...feels very spiritual as well as visually breath taking...the closest i will get at the moment, is miami, florida, next week...hummm, how about a painting workshop in bali? best, shanee

How beautiful! Wishing you more and more. You can't help but be inspired and inspiring.
Thanks, LaWanda

Julian, gazing at your recent work gives me such peace and calm. I'm sure it did the same for you as you brought to life this scene and shared it with us.

Thank you for taking me to Bali on a grey California day. I love the sense of "somethings about to happen" in this otherwise quiet painting.

I just discovered this 'Comments' form. Does it mean that the notes I have emiled to you were all lost ? I am not very skilled at computers. In any case, lucky you in rain. We, in New England, are still smothered and housebound in snow snow snow.

Julian, I grew up in the tropics, in N. Queensland, Australia, so I think I'm better able to judge the realism of these Bali paintings than your Provence ones, because they are so like the scenery of my childhood. I can HEAR these noisy palm trees, feel the humid air, and the steam rising after the sudden downpour. I read your wife's blog post and can imagine that you are having a very nice, very different time from your usual life. It sounds like you're enjoying yourselves. Your painting sure adapted quickly to the new subject matter!

hi fanny, no, don't worry, none of your notes have been lost!

katherine, i'm afraid we were on the scooter a little far from home so only got tanah lot at the busiest time, but can imagine it being quite wonderful when everyone is home.
