As an "Aussie", I'm familiar with the saying "Life's a beach ... and then you die". Maybe this IS The Beach. A delightful image in which to dream a day or two away.
The boat like an upside-down candlelight miraculously burns into the water and lights the skyline...Under white winged clouds.Hallucinatory picturing.
I can picture myself swimming in the blue/green waters you depict here. I certainly wish I was there as I now have to go out and shovel snow. Thank you Julian for these delightful paintings that momentarily take me away from the wintry vista outside my window.
Like the lavender sky and the ocean that seems to go on forever.
I'd say more, but I'm basking in this beautiful scene...aahhh!
I think this is one of the most beautiful paintings you have sent Julian.
I love this painting Julian!! It has both a feeling of pure joy and freedom, makes me want to stay there forever!
