Bliss! You have a special way with bread, Julian.

Oh that is wonderful - just perfect in every way. I love it.

Breathtaking painting. You are an incredibly talented painter.

Julian! what a treat for the eyes!..it might have been me that snuck in and ate the missing half..I could finish off the rest right now from my screen..every brushstroke is so perfectly delicious, I swear I can smell the warm butter! Thank you!

Formidable! Makes me feel hungry just looking at it - fantastic painting

The canvas texture is really nice. You have a really nice way of painting the knife and the table cloth. Do you mind if I ask how you primed the canvas.

When it seems as though the paintings can't possibly get any better, they do. You are such a treat.

This is from the hand and heart of a master. There is no great painter, living or dead (well, they would have to be dead) who wouldn't have loved to sign this one. Let no one shame you into what they call "color". Your color couldn't be more beautiful...I wonder that you sell it.

Gorgeous, Julian, you showoff!!

I agree, spectacular!

A feast for the eyes!

that is truly a fantastic painting, wish I could afford to by it...so so good.

Bread is the THE hardest Still Life subject, I think. You are so good at capturing the croissant in this painting that it 's almost creepy!

Exquisitely done. So beautiful -- and realistic -- that I want to reach out and touch the tablecloth and sample the croissant!!

An especially lovely one, Julian. What I really like here is the feeling you've created - a calmness, but also a sense of suspension, as if someone has just stepped out of the room. Every choice you made contributes to that emotional atmosphere; it's beautifully done.

I can just taste it Julian. Well done!

what excellent perspective on the knife, the painting is marvellous ;0)

Manet composition with Fantin LaTour delicacy. well done!
