I say this about every one of your seasons (as I know them through your paintings), but definitely Fall is my favorite (for the moment!).

Oh my goodness, brilliant.

Sorry to hear that you have been missing plein air opportunites. But I do love your series of glowing quinces.

Just amazing and beautiful.

For me, this is such a comforting image. I have no idea why, but it's the feeling I get from it. Thanks so much.

I love it!

One idea builds on another. I hope your quince last for a couple more paintings! Nice work, Julian.

Exquisite Julian - pottery cup and quince both!

JULIAN. abandon the website...stay close to the canvas and palette. As always, a beautiful immage. Love the golden tones and dark shadows very lush lighting. Go outside, plein air better for artists than stuffy computer offices. cheers, hello to family. geo


Handsome as always, Julian.

I visualize another painting, a variation on this theme:

It features just the quince and its leaf, placed in the right of the canvas as it is.

You so deftly paint a powerfully mysterious black empty. I think that you should use that gift to the dramatic effect of which it is capable.

In this case you would leave out the cup. Less is more, especially when you replace it with that compelling dark.

Please dare to go there. I think that we all - especially you - will be in thrall to the composition and the mystery of the dark.

Please?

your paintings are wonderful at the moment. You have inspired me to go out and buy some quince -not to paint to eat.

Aaaah! Yum! Reminds me I must make some quince jelly to have with blue cheese and a glass of red while toasting my toes in front of the fire this Christmas!Your quince are much bigger than mine!
