Classically beautiful Julian!

Julian, you said that you are having fun with the quinces. So are we! I have noticed that the unfamiliar quinces are challenging our descriptive powers. It seems that as you push yourself, you give your viewers a little nudge as well. Merci.

Wonderful piece of art. An interesting & clever variation, Julian.

I think I can speak for all your "Postcard recipients" when I say that we're having fun (viewing) your quinces as well! Keep up the great painting, I sure do enjoy seeing your variations on a theme!

Oh, the blue and yellow is a perfect combination.
Thank you!

Ah, quinces! They always make me think of "the owl and pussy-cat went to sea, In a beautiful pea-green boat".... "And they dined on mince and slices of quince".... I learned that when I was a wee-one in Brazil. My mother (who is a Scrymgeour in background -- they were standard-bearers for the Queen of England, I was told -- and the name still exists as we saw it on our trip to Scotland) recited or sang the poem to me as a little girl.... I always wondered what the fruit was like -- and YOU have them right next door! Your colors are extraordinary, and you're no slouch with Garland's brush-strokes either. You are a master "brush-stroker"!!!

Hidden face in the darkness as behind a theatre curtain and face to the stark light
Like all of us
Like,also,Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Like actors just before they enter the stage and,all of a sudden,in the spotlight
Like our floating lunar star too...So bashful.
A psychoanalytical painting.

superb !

Not sure about the psychoanalytical meaning, but you did a nice job, Julian.
