This is a beautiful painting. The fruit looks a little tired,like it wants to lean over or sink in, exactly like some other creatures (including me) might want to do at the end of the week....

When I saw this painting, I had the thought of how fortunate I feel to be receiving your daily paintings. This one seems so down to earth; not glossy, unretouched. No airbrushing! I just had a sigh of relief; it calmed me somehow.

I can relate to Lynne about the end of the week!
Thank you, Julian.

How do you do it?!! Do you ever run courses/lessons in France?

I always look forward to seeing your still life paintings.

I am really enjoying your still life paintings! And I am so glad that you are feeling better. Had missed seeing your work.

Another knock out Julian! I could stare at this all day! Bravo!!


Julian, you haven't eaten that apple yet, and now you have added more bounty - you never run short of ways to paint the spirit of life in your works.


That's not half bad!

(nicely done.)

whoa!!! WHOA! Wow!!

Luscious painting.
A joyous reminiscence of the "Apple Day"...

My favorite colours, red and yellow; I love how the yellow in the quince picks up the green streaks in the apple.

I like the way you don't feel the need to idealize. Life is just right the way it is.
