Oil study #163: Sundries

The lemon seems to glow in this one.

One thing I wish I had seen earlier is the diagonal of the shadow on the background, the pestle and the flower stem. They lined up too much. But my house critic (husband Ken) did not notice, so I left it that way :)

I like the shadows, Johanne. I especially like the way the shadow falls diagonally across the table. I'm like your resident critic. If you hadn't pointed out the shadow on the wall, I don't think I'd have noticed it.
