I love the subtle colors in this simple but beautiful piece!!
Glad you like it, Hilda. Subtle is the correct word but thanks for adding "beautiful."
Wow! This is so beautiful! I love the dynamism of the push/pull of a simple subject with your complex texture and fracturing. I love this.
How nice of you - thanks Lorraine. I am enjoying your latest series and your references to Stanley B work. What a fabulous artist is he.
yes this is so beautiful - so cool, calm and refreshing!
Cool and calm. Lovely sounding term after my riot of color the previous day. Thanks, Myra.
Awesome Julie, I love the neutrals and muted color!
I think your painting. Church parking, is full of beautiful neutrals and mutes color, too. Thanks, Dana.
This may be my favorite of yours, Julie. Beautiful.
Hi Gina - thanks, it means a lot. Love Princess Suki!
You obviously handle subtle and soft values as well as bold color! Very lovely!
Nice of you to say so. I am apt to go for more color instinctively so it is good to know you think I can handle both.Love the finished landscape.
I love how different this is. The soft colors and the simplicity of the painting. I really like this a lot. Nice to also see someone else do a glass. Painting glass is for me a balance of painting what you see and what you know. Great work.
great comment Roger, thank you.I did have this set up by my easel so it was more of painting what I was seeing.I love the colored glass you are painting and would love to find something in that rose color you did.
Neutral colors vibrant, not a paradox but the reality of YOUR mastery of color.A composition as the Japanese use for tea, a flower only to show the beauty, a color like white to indicate all that is pure.I open my day admiring your painting that I call ZEN today!
I agree about the purity of a white flower, Rita but cannot take credit for the zen like arrangement. The flower broke off while I was deadheading and I plopped it into the handy, leftover glass. I looked down and immediately was drawn to it.Loved your blog today.
I find the blues, greens, and creams so pretty, so soothing. Beautiful piece, Julie. And thank you for your encouragement.
Thanks Crimson. I think the colors are soothing too. Made a change from my usual - that is for sure.
I love the pureness and the apparent simplicity in this...would never tire looking at it.
Nice to hear from you Jane. thank you.Love the face you did.
Those small dabs of yellow sing out in a loud sweet voice since they're surrounded by all those beautiful whispering neutrals.
Quite poetic today, Dean. I may repeat what you wrote for the whole day...whispering neutrals...what a beautiful sound it has.
Subtle and really lovely. The single arrangement along with the neutral colors is very delicate.
Thank you Libby. Nice line drawing on your blog today.
You are so versatile! I really like the palette on this one. Nice, calm and serene.
Versatile - thanks..." it takes one to know one" as the saying goes. You can do amazing roses with as much ease as a truck!And I have never done a truck.
My goodness, ditto above. If one did not understand the power and variety in neutrals, here is the textbook. Makes me want to paint something similar. Beautiful.
When you grayed down your red barn you were on the same path. Have a go, Helen. I know after painting something bright I always turn to something less so. Color is important to me though.Thanks for such a great comment.
Lovely little painting.
I appreciate your comment, Susan and must add I enjoyed your post on color today.
LOL, very beautiful piece...but the title needs work...plastic glass....kinda odd....plastic cup maybe...or just glass....I start laughing again every time I say plastic glass. whatever, the result is a gorgeous little gem of a painting.
Excellent! I did it deliberately because I have always loved the identity and use of the oxymoron "plastic glasses." Not a cup - no handle, just what is says it is...plastic see through version of a container you drink out of which is commonly called glass! Others I love are.Legally Drunk!Same DifferenceAlone together!I could go on and on. Good for you Lavon! What fun.
Julie, this painting and the vibrant painting before it just knock my socks off! Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!
Three E's - wow. I really, really, really appreciate them. makes me glow.Love your portrait - can't wait to see the other half.
Greatness hides in simplicity... fantastic painting dear Julie!! J' adore :)Warm regards.
I am very happy you like it.
Hello Julie:) So different then your other works but not less beautiful. Very nice painted! Love it:)
You are gracious indeed. Thank you.I am so sorry to hear about your stolen painting.
Very harmonious, very enjoyable to watch. A great success, in my opinion.
Nice of you to say that, Lydie, thank you. I find that if I am pleased with it then that is success to my mind. Even if it is not what exactly what I was after. I always have to realize that this is the best I can do at this time...but I am growing and can look forward to improving.
A lonely little Petunia in a plastic glass! :0) A really lovely painting, Julie
Ta - ever so!
Gorgeous colors as always!
I enjoy that lovely "lean" of the flower out of the vessel...and the thick paint..expertly done!
I have to say your article inspires me to the most, it is so instructive to tell others how to understand that in such a special view.I will share your articles with my friends, i think they will like them just like me. What's more, can you update them more frequently? I am a fan of online games. rs gold , runescape gold
I love that you are taking the time to comment and thank you for it. I am sure other readers will enjoy them too.Cheers,Julie
