Such a wonderful painting--love the bag and the olives--feel like I can take one out and here a little crinkle. Thanks.

Julian!...such a fabulous painting! Love the way you captured the light reflection in the plastic and on the olives!

Dear Julian-

As a long time ago graduate of Stanford university in Art History, I love your talent as an artist. Unfortunately I can’t justify the outlay to purchase any of your paintings, but I love getting your emails. I would love to see more self portraits and landscapes. Would also love to see images of your obviously much-loved wife and son. No doubt you prefer to protect their privacy. Understandable. Just know you are appreciated by this transplanted Hawaiian, now living on the gorgeous Monterey Peninsula of California.

Hard to even imagine how one goes about painting this difficult subject matter. And yet here it is and it is crazy wonderful!

The colors, the texture...spot on Julian!

Dear Julian,

I have left comments before. We bought your books at our local bookstore. The first one was when your father-in-law deposited a few there. I have been on you e-mail list ever since. I enjoy seeing your work every day, ... almost ... as you do take vacations from your work on occasion ! I have watched how you have gained a well deserved recognition. I like all your subjects. I particularly enjoy your landscapes because they allow me to visit that lovely part of France vicariously. It looks so much like the countryside I remember from when I was much younger ...

I was delighted when one of your self-portraits made it into the National Portrait Gallery. CONGRATULATIONS. I have shared your e-mail with friends who are interested in Art. I will continue to do so.

THANKS for your new way to allow us to start an account and watch your auctions. I might do that !


Kind regards,
Françoise Szigeti

Fun to see both you and Duane Keiser painting olives today...
I continue to be inspired by your daily hard work and undeniable passion for paint!
