"Still Life with Lemon"

                                                    8" x 10" Oil on Canvas

When I was making this painting I was trying to stick within a 2 hour time limit. I was attempting to make the lemon the primary interest and then lead the eye back to the grapes then to the bottle. I wanted the shadow to bring the eyes back to the lemon again. My wife says the shadow is too close in value to the bottle. I didn't want the bottle to compete with the star (Lemon), but in hindsight I think she might have been right and I could boost the bottle up a value.

Thank you
