I am soooo happy that they kept you paintings undisturbed this is such a relaxing painting WELL DONE!!!!!

The things we do for love! Great painting, great fun


Your life and family sound so wonderful. My late husband and I used to camp along the Rio Grande River between Texas and Mexico. I miss those young days, but not sleeping on rocky ground in a little pup tent! I love that you were painting?with your feet?.er?ah?in the water! I was in Aix for 4 weeks last summer ('13)?and got a chance to paint Mt. St.Victoire while standing in the same spot as Cezzane painted it?.Of course, it's CEZZANE's mountain, not mine?but it was a good feeling, and most inspiring. One day I will take one of your workshops. Provence is a marvelous place?and your paintings are beautiful.

When nature becomes grand..and looks wonderful enlarged..

And happy camping memories for years to come

This one's a beaut! Happy camping

Alain took my word - gorgeous! Have fun camping!

Forgive me, I did not do it on purpose.

Love this.

Superb !

Extraordinary ? even for you, Julian. Subtle color, restrained values, striking composition and a beautiful sense of light and atmosphere. Makes me think of Sargent's "camping" paintings.

Unfortunate that the enlargement pop-up isn't working for this one; looks like there's some wonderful texture in the brush marks.

Fixed now! Wow, I was right. The brush marks in the water are the water.

Your blog is great! One of my favorites now.

Thanks, Alain. If you search, you will find a number of mentions of Julian's work, going back as far as 2006.

Your blog is rich, instructive and above all, shows a high open-mindedness about Art. So many "unknown" artists to discover. Thanks for that.
