A quiet day,a natural cathedral,wherein we can hear the songs of peppy birds and the rustling of the approaching spring.
Thank you , again, for posting your sizes in inches, also.
Thank you so much for now including inches measurements as well as centimeters~~good for me here in USA. Once again, I am enjoying your book, Postcard from Provence, and also Ruth's book. Each day's offering from you is a gift. Thank you, Julian!
I have tried to paint similar landscapes but I always miss some important element that I can't explain but know when I see it as I see it now. Its there yet undefinable. A total that is more than the sum of its many parts. A harmony of forms and colors and values. A tone poem on canvas. A true painting by a master artist.
You said it- perfectly!
I love the relaxed and hazy vibe of this painting. It reminds me of the countryside. The colors are just so mellow and relaxing to look at.
