Oh, I just love this!!!! What a wonderful composition - that shiny knife handle pulling you in, the perfectly painted brick ledge, the bread and jam jar! You are SO talented!! This, to me, is an exciting piece and yet it's so simple and if someone asked me: "well, what's the scene?" and I replied: "a jam jar, a piece of bread and a knife handle", they'd think I was a bit nuts. lol! :) Well done, Julian!
My favourite breakfast and a fantastic painting.
Reminds me sweetly of breakfast at my best friends house. Thank you Julian
This is so fantastic...ahhhhh
So sweet....pardon the pun, JMS. 😊
Bon Maman Rhubarbe is the BEST! When I go to France, I return with at least 4 jars since it seems to be completely unheard of in the US. Your painting might not be Rhubarbe, but it captures the delight of their jams!
I so enjoy all your works, admire your talent.
Lovely self-portrait! (love the effortless detail in the knife!) Such skill in remaining spontaneous whilst maintaining a demanding range of tone. I love the shadow areas.
This would make a good print I think Julian.
