Wow,something new at last! A masterpiece,through the abstract edge! AMAZING!
Love this paint tube painting, Julian...your Postcards make my day a lot better. Thank you! May you and your family thrive and prosper.
Love this!
How can a paint smear make your day? This way.
Really enjoy your paintings, the colours and the depth and the pleasure in looking....always look forward to seeing what you're going to paint next:):)
I've never had a painting make me laugh before, but this one sure did! I bet you had a lot of fun painting that one, Julien. Great job. Great choice of subject!
It's a colour. With a u.
great study...one note of color up against another...
Dear Julian, you are full of surprises, a fun little painting! I would love to see the whole atelier, probably in the usual sweet disorder of a creative mind. How about a video of "A day in the life of...." Anna.
Today I wonder what is the painting we can perceive in places under the top coat of colours making the background... Was it the start of a painting attempt under the final painting? I am sure "Painting tube" will have some secrets to reveal for generations to come, as some paintings of the Renaissance reveal their hidden secrets by X rays nowadays...
One thing in common, our paint tubes look alike! I like how your paintings are like an autobiography of you and your life.
We can say too that this paint tube looks like a man (with a phtalo green bobble hat)in his bed, with a TV dinner placed on a multicoloured bedclothes,who perhaps is watching television(placed outside the left side of the canvas)during meals.
Actually Valerie, it depends where you live, eg. "Gray is not a color" is perfectly correct in American English though we would say "Grey is not a colour".
At our house grey/gray is not a color/colour. It is two tiny kittens!
Just gorgeous.Particularly struck by the delicious smears of the bench-top colour that define the lower edge of the paint tube. In fact the more I look at it, without that one sharp edge the painting is just a mass of paint blobs.That masterful stroke that brings it all together and reveals the artists intention.
