Absolutely gorgeous!
Love it! Happy Christmas!
Just what we need for our Christmas tree! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hopefully the world won't end tomorrow and next year will be much better then this one. One can only hope.
Oh, Julian, ... exquisite!!! I would love this for next year's Christmas card. What do you think???
Julian, no matter how well designed or coloured this painting is, it conveys what is so important to glass balls: LIght. You have rendered that element expertly for our enjoyment. Thank you.
Appreciate your exquisite rendering of the glass ornament. Almost like a crystal ball of mystery. The image helped a lot as Christmas spirit here is very low due to the terrible school tragedy in a town near where I live in Connecticut. Very hard to find joy right now. geo
It is a real clair-obscure painting.It takes us from the darkest of black to the firework of light.Splendide!
Julian, this piece is beautiful in its simplicity! Bravo!
Merry Christmas and best wishes for a healthy, happy and successful new year for you and your family. I alw ays look forward to seeing your beautiful artwork.
Julian and Ruth, we (Dean and I) love this...the perfect expression of the spirit of the season... have a magical Christmas with your son... with aloha...
To render a simple glass bauble with such depth of colour and masterly brushstrokes is a triumph. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing you work and life so generously with us via emails, it's like receiving a small gift every day. Happy Christmas to you all.
A magical bauble that looks like our Earth but a kind of dream Earth seen from space. A golden Earth where people are free and happy,a golden world on which the word "War" has disappeared. Definitely. I hope you have a great end of year break.
Merry Chtistmas. I prefer more coulours, but this one is "magnifique"
This is a lovely painting and so well described, balanced and set like an exquisite jewel. Merry Christmas
Lovely, Mercy Christmas
Simply beautiful - worth studying up-close to see how you used the color and light. May you and your family have a special and blessed Christmas!
Exquisite, Julian. Blessings of the season to you, Ruth, and Louis.
Beautifully painted, just a hint of nostalgia in a bauble reminiscent of the ones I remember from my early childhood, not highly coloured but a warmth and glow about them all the same, wishing you and your family a lovely Christmas.
Very nice Julian, as it's Christmas is there any chance of you painting another one? :-)
Your work is sooo wonderful. I especailly love the "little works" witihin the whole that makes your works so remarkable. Thanks for the gifts you give us on a daily basis! Happily Holidays to you and yours, Loretta Loy-Adair Sonoma, CA
