I particularly like your use of shadow and light in your work--it really adds character to your work.

Awesome Lillian. It leaves so much to the viewers imagination and I LOVE paintings like that. I like the free form of it rather than the rigid linework you see in other still lifes. You should be real proud of this one...congrats at doing it...

You have a great eye and execution! Wonderful texture and shade/shadow you are an accomplished artist, who is able to give feeling to a painting which is as important as technique.
