Alison I'd love to see this in person! If you're in Napa it would be fun!! I've been bidding from Maui on vacation . I used to wear only this fragrance. Let me know if you are open to a viewing.
I just love it!!
Captured the essence not just of this perfume bottle but of perfume itself, the idea of it, it's glamorous mystique, in straightforward but graceful strokes. Every single mark on this small painting does its job, in its perfect place, at its correct temperature and hue. There is an almost imperceptible halo of reflected light on the wall behind the subject that a less confident painter might feel the need to play up. Years of painting goes into knowing that covering up the horizontal slash of purple in the lower right would completely change the feel of the artwork. It anchors the picture and balances the mass that forms the brand name & logo on the bottle. This is a painting I could look at every day for the rest of my life and always see something new. A long-winded way to say "just beautiful Julian"
Hello Julian I love the change to a perfume bottle AND Jeff's comment and analysis of the painting.
