Beautiful work !
Beautifully painted Julian. Glad to see you are back.
Wonderful return to work. It was good to see you at your father's funeral. And Louis, of course.
In my opinion, flowers are among the hardest of subjects to paint convincingly. You nailed it Julian, in this humble little composition with the bravura passage of purple paint. Congrats to the owner of this one (jealous much).
WOw, this is Stunning.! Great work , Julian, Tish.
Julian, This is beautiful! I can almost smell the irises. Happy Spring to you and your family! Mary Anne
Just yummy!
I love the way you followed the shapes of the petals!! Well done, of course! C-Marie
your work gorgeous. love when you do enamel. painter, too. wish you'd measure in inches not cms which i have no idea of sizes. loved ruthh's book too.
That is a delicious purple.
Now that's a beautiful painting! Your flowers are blooming earlier than ours, Julian.
Dear Julian, what a lovely surprise! It must have been some comfort to see spring unfolding all around you back in Provence. The glowing petals in a divine array of purples next to the cool, greyish white of the enamel is so beautifully painted. Thank you. Anna.
What an enigmatic painting. The rich colours really sing and I love the rich purple tones and the corner positioning of the jug.
The irises are truly beautiful and remind me fondly of Provence this time of year. I am so jealous as I live in Nova Scotia and I have shovelled snow off the deck TWICE today!
