I was sitting in front of the computer holding a cup of coffee wondering what to try painting when I decided to paint my hand and cuppa :D and then the flowers and vase :D

Hello Jean,
Well, when that happened to me, I ended up doing that ridiculous 'selfy' of myself...
Very nicely done hand, and what kind of coffee do you drink? Always love the flowers, you
got them down, quite well!
Take care,
Steve

Your mastery and style became absolutely top ranking quality level! I love them all! Quite strange for me usually not appreciating most floreal paintings ...

Thank you Steve, Marilyn Anne and Caesar your kind comments are much appreciated :)

As long as it's a mild blend I drink it Steve but am much more particular about me tea :D

Doesn't that highlight on the vase really gloss up the surface texture of that ceramic. Neat trick to fool the eye.

Hello Jean...
'Strutting your stuff', the vase isn't wonky at all, my mom would love it.
I like the irises as well, I'm going to check back later to see if that lonely
bulb has bloomed...
Take care,
Steve

Hello Jean,
Like your snowdrops in the winter....
Your going to get stuck with 'The Flower Lady' as a nickname, I always love the
flowers.
As for last daughter, screwed up and set dem's at [email protected], was going
to be a practise. So this one will be small always, but after all, she is my...
'Little One'...
Take care,
Steve

Sort of "sad" but pretty, in the sense that a "weeping" willow is based on the downward direction of the branches. Nice Jean. I like how you painted the ground.

Caesar
01-27-2014, 09:26 PM
Harmony in all its aspects is the common feature of all these marvellous floreal paintings.

Thats so lovely Jean, it has a very calming effect, well done:)

justjean
01-28-2014, 06:59 AM
Thank you All

Steve, not sure I could be called a flower lady as I have two black thumbs :)
yes the drooping heads do make them look sad don't they Mr Da :D
Caesar a shame there wasn't that harmony in the people world :(
Happy you find it calming, Katie :)

Nice stuff Jean! The darks really give your pics a solidity. Reminiscent of older period paintings. Good stuff.

Hello Jean,
All the shelves got rearranged, didn't see you at first....
Fantastic job on 'Lady', do I see the grim reaper playing that violin?
Collecting skulls as he fiddles...but your light of day as brought us happiness
watching the pups at play!
Beautiful work Jean,
Steve

D Akey
02-17-2014, 10:27 AM
Very nice. I am intrigued by the phantasmagorical Paganini. It was said he made a deal with the devil, or else how could he play so well and so fast. Well, the violin lives on and we wonder, like the sword in the stone, they who can draw the bow must be they who shall rule them all, my precious. . . Wait. . . that's Lord of the Rings. . . Quick, nurse, a mazurka to ground me!

Nice stuff JustJean. I like the portrait as well as the others. Cute skulls and nicely stacked puppies.

I particularly love the mountains. . . you do well with lighter, brighter fare. Very fresh feeling.

AndreaMG
02-18-2014, 02:07 AM
Hello Jean, your work is sooo classy. The old lady, the violin played by a shadow, the pile of skulls, the landscape and even the puppies!! I love them all and in particular the skulls, one who is capable of going from some delicate flowers to the bones with the same elegant hand is truly talented! ;)

Really nice - I always find your flower studies quite entrancing. That glaze on the vase really helps make this one pop. I'm not seeing it as wonky at all.

Oh, I missed the latest somehow on my last post. The lighthouse is fantastic, and the other, well, the feeling of depth through that fog is tangible. Excellent as always.

D Akey
02-27-2014, 04:51 AM
Love these, JustJean! I particularly like how you're working soft and then hitting bits to sharpen focus through contrast. It is almost as if one is gazing sort of soaking it all in and then sees an area that draws special attention -- as with the light house. It reminds me of the effect that comes when in a lightly foggy atmosphere as it's lifting. In certain climates I've been in there have been places where the moisture is in clusters and is also diffuse, sometimes in the same place. One of the reasons I find the coast so fascinating. Beautiful work.

justjean
02-28-2014, 09:19 AM
Sandy, thanks for peeking in I'm happy you liked them :)

and always enjoy reading your comments as you are a wordsmith of the first order :D
