poignant.....the end of Spring...here comes summer. beautiful painting in every way. thank you, julian, and good luck with the class. grace
Dear Julian, yesterday I marvelled at the Banksiae rose, glistening leaves in the rain, could almost smell the scent of the earth soaking up the spring shower. Today I am totally in love with the soft,elegant and sensual white peony blossoms and glossy,deep green pot. The brush strokes are wonderfully expressive and just look at the nuances in the blossoms and the texture of the leaves! Raffine! Anna.
Of course I love the peonies so ready to shatter. But that pot is absolutely wonderful: the color, the brushwork, the lost-in-the-shadows shape.
Oh, what a glorious painting! One of these days, I'd like to own one like that, but, alas, there are other obligations. (don't print that, Julian)
Their aesthetic sense in falling as they did is impeccable.
That handsome jug needs me..there is a story to tell... Might we see a few pix pls Julian, of the painting course, locations, people, comments, maybe see a few paintings... To keep us all going... Thank you
You said it, Sylvia! Love to see the painter and his class on location.(And some paintings too!) Anna.
I have enjoyed your e-mails. It seems you no longer are sending post cards from provence. Please send these postcards.
Have just found the blog and gallery...fun to follow and enjoy... Loved Gina's painting ..texture and colours.. Did she use brush or knife and may we know colours used pls? Regards..to all
Oh great,found the blog and gallery,it all seems so idyllic,its wet and cool everywhere this spring but somehow greener and fresher. How lovely it all seems,you lucky things,but of course there is planning and work behind the scenes too.(Bon femme Ruth?) Anna.
Lovely, as usual! It is always a bit sad to see them fall to the ground at the end of Spring, but you have captured their lush voluptuous beauty to last all year. I love that gorgeous jug! Stunning color! Thank you, Julian. Elaine
