Welcome back Julian! I've missed your posts and your art. Hope you are restored to full health in short order!

Welcome back Julian! I've missed your posts and your art. Hope you are restored to full health in short order!

So, so, happy to hear you are back. All the best and take care of yourself. You certainly have not forgotten how to paint a beautiful canvas!

Welcome back! It's nice to have my postcards again, and I see that your artistic eye didn't suffer much from the time off. Continue feeling better!

Hooray! I am glad you are painting and posting again. I hope all is well.

It is grand to have you back and I hope your health is fully restored. Love the blue and orange in the clementine painting.

Julian,
Conserve your energy (not an easy thing with a one year old...)- we can wait while you recover, well, maybe we can't, but it sounds empathetic to say so. You've rather spoiled us with your heretofore "daily" paintings. We missed you!

Welcome back!! Nothing was so pleasing today as seeing the familiar Postcard from Provence in my inbox. So, so pleased to see you are well and painting. And Clementines seems somehow the perfect subject. They are beautiful.

Great to know that you are feeling better! It was so kind of your wife to let us know what was happening. May those worries now be behind you all, and may this new season bring great health and joy.

Welcome back Julian. I'm so glad you have recovered and are home and painting again! The skin on those clementines knocks me out.

dear julian, we are glad to hear that you are back in the saddle your paintings brighten up our day namaste tim

Welcome back! Glad to see you're getting "back into the frame" ;) I'm sure you want to charge around and get out in the fresh air but please do take your time - we'll all still be here as you get over such a long "rest" in a hospital bed.

Brilliant pic!

Welcome back, Julian! I hope that you are now fully recovered. I have missed your beautiful paintings, but look forward to experiencing autumn in Provence through your eyes and paint brush.

Welcome Back Julian. Carry on!

Well worth the wait. You had your hospital experience in confluence with my signup to get your paintings. Thought maybe I had jinxed you. Great to see this wonderful art.

What a nice surprise in my email! Welcome back, Julian! Glad to see you creating again and what a nice way to return.

Welcome back! I'm so happy that brush still knows what to do in your hand. The "Clementines" are superb. I'm ready to peel and savor their juice and flavor.

Thank God you are well and back home, Julian. All three of you must be very happy about that. And what a beautiful picture to start the new season! Welcome back.

I breathed a sigh of relief today when I saw your beautiful postcard. Thank you to Ruth for letting us know you were ill. I'm glad you are back, healthy and painting! You are an inspiration.

Nice one Julian, very good to have you back xxxxm

So glad you are well and back at home - and painting of course!

I wondered what had happened to you! I am glad you are home safe and sound. Sending healing wishes and thanks for the lovely new painting.

Thanks to Ruth for letting us know why we were not receiving your "gift" each day.

This painting is amazing and it shows that your talent is still very much a part of you.

Stay well and enjoy being home with your family.

Thank God for all blessings.

I am so delighted to know you're recovered and painting again!

Welcome back - we have missed you! Wishing you best health


Very happy you are better! Thank you for a lovely painting. Enjoy every moment of your life!

I am so glad you are well again. I have been thinking about you and your family and definitely wishing for the best for you. Your paintings feed my soul. Carmen

..you were missed

..welcome back.

Julian, it's so good to see you in motion again, and you are still in my prayers. I never forget how you are one of those who got my own creative juices running again by starting Postcards in Provence. Beautiful work as always, and be well my friend!

Wow back with a Wow! Well done, and hope you are fully recovered - so kind of your wife to circulate news - stay well and stay painting!

Glad to see you back again and to be receiving your beautiful paintings...hope you are well and all that hospital thing is in the past...
Cheers - here's to good health

I love these clementines - that peel is so rich it is practically marmalade! So glad to hear you are home and reunited with Ruth and Louis... just lovely, Julian... much love to you all Barbara

Glad that you are back in the saddle as we say in Texas. Take it easy and you will be back to 100% in no time. Randy

This is beautiful! Barely home and back at it, not missing a beat. You're amazing! Please thank Ruth for all of her updates and I'm so glad you're home and well.

Ditto!

Welcome back, Julian. Gorgeous painting.

It's hard to believe that a guy who can paint colors this rich, vibrant and alive is just back from the hospital!
I'm so happy you're back and sending "postcards" again. As you can see from the comments, we have missed you greatly.

WOW, you surely have not lost your touch, those clementines are superb! Sooo happy to have you back to the drawing board. Best wishes and best of health to you!

It's great to see you back, Julian. I've been thinking of you, and hoping that you are now doing well. And another beautiful painting for all of us to enjoy.

Dear Julian,
So glad you are back in action!
So amazing how life can change in an instant.

So thrilled to see your email drop into my box! The first painting of your "season of recovery" made me smile because over the summer I've become rather addicted to chilled, freshly juiced Clementines. Great choice and handling.

Glad you're back,

Bienvenu!!!!!!!!! Having had a "strokelet" myself (we weren't SURE you had one -- hope not) I empathize. Amazing what stress can do. Is it possible for us to see what the long-awaited Louis looks like? A 1 year-old would have to be asleep in order for you to make a portrait for us. Ruth, am sure you are glad to have your hubby back! Love to all 3 of you.

Welcome home Julian!!!
I am so glad you are back. I have missed your beautiful painting emails enormously. and many happy birthday wishes to Louis,
Best Regards,
Maud

Julian, a new baby joined our family and your painting was in my inbox. The world is brighter today.

I was thinking about you tonight and said a little prayer for you. I have missed you and your paintings so much, and I'm so glad you are fine now.

Your painting is really good - love the touch of blue in back of the clementines. Evelyn

Ecstatic to get your beautiful postcard today! Hope you are feeling better.
Best wishes :)

So very happy and relieved that you are back from hospital and working again. I very much missed seeing your artwork. I admire your economical brushwork, use of limited colour, and spot on composition. I have saved all your emails and refer to them for inspiration when doing my own art. Stay well.

Dear Julian,

Cheers!

So glad to know that you are back and started painting again.
Beautiful work as usual!!!

Wish you all the best for a healthy and many many years of painting.

Ditto to all above.....I'm so relieved your home with your family and recouperating ...quickly I pray.
The clementines are lovely, dark and mysterious. They make me thing of three actors taking their final bow on stage.

How wonderful that you are well and home. I've missed your beautiful art and love these gorgeous clementines. All the best to you and your family.

Welcome back, Julian. I've missed you! Hope you are feeling well.

Many thanks everyone, it is great to be back and to feel so welcomed!!

Julian: What is there left say? But I might as well get my 2 cents in.
So good to see you back and in the swing!
Obviously you haven't lost a step or a brush
stroke. Stay well!

Glad you are back! ... and on such excellent form

Feel better soon. I am just home from the Hospital after a knee replacement so I know a little of what you have experienced. Love the latest painting!
