They may have been painted in wintry weather, but they seem to promise spring.

I so look forward to the daily Postcard. I love the simiplicity of the subjects and the beauty in which you've portrayed them. All are gorgeous and make me smile. Thank you!

I'm sitting outside enjoying a lovely glass of wine checking my inbox, and what a beautiful addition to this fine evening, seeing your painting as the sun sets over San Jacinto mountain range.... Thank you Julian

- Do you know how much I love you?", dared to say the lemon on the right. A tiny white highlight of pleasure, suddenly, germinated on the face of the lemon with a green scrunchie...A new Romeo and Juliette story began.

Dear Julian, exquisite!
The colour and texture of the citrons and their leaves are so beautifully painted and somehow evocative of times past in the title "Lemons from the Cote d'Azur". Proustian lemons!

Nice movement though the painting, Julian. I like the touch of blue next to the leaf on the left.
