I just love the way the poppies in the foreground go from a deep cool red to a warmer orange in the background. I really works.
What a lively painting! But,gradually... A full-frontal tiny face in marble appeared through the dense hedgerow... Enigmatic,Hellenistic face,on the middle-right of the hedge,below the house.He observed the world;impassively. And the only dark window of the "Cyclops-house" added to the mystery of an apparent light-hearted scene.
While I don't have the time or resources to bid on your art, I truly enjoy seeing your work in my inbox. Your most recent posts have uplifted my spirits because you sent so many dark images over the last several months that I feared your illness had turned your artistic vision from optimistic to dismal. I am glad to see your brighter colors return. It's not that I am unaware that the world is grim or think that artists should not depict that, but if one's talent is showing beauty to others on a regular basis, which everyone needs, it's sad to see that vision diminished by illness. So, I am delighted by your apparent rise from the depths. Of course, I could be totally wrong and the change is purely due to nature's seasons.
beautiful painting to celebrate Mothers Day here. thank you, julian. and a Happy Mothers Day to the "new "mother over there.....gfs
Poppies! Quite nice Julian!
Have no idea what you are talking about....
JulianL My goal is to live in france and do what you do but i don't paintd as well as you do yet. I absolultely love your technique and ability to single out the thing that tells the story so well. thank you for your talent and for sharing it so willingly. If I can sell a few more paindtings, I hope to earn enough to bid on one of yours.
exactly my thoughts... every night over last autumn and winter looking at the "daily picture" I have moaned and complained to my husband about the "darkness" in the pictures and at some stage even thought it was my computer's fault. So now I am very delighted to see more colours and light and feel as if a weight has been lifted from the painting.
Iso enjoy seeing your lovely paintings ,it is like taking in a museum,someyhing not readily available in South Louisiana.Thanks for sharing.
