Red Vase and Lemons

Finally folks, I have a painting.....I am overjoyed that I hung in there with this one.  I have learned so much about color as value and the introduction of grays.  My composition was just not working until I added a few more lemons and involved the foreground of the painting.  There were tears of utter frustration until I made break through after break through.  I am finally excited about painting again.  What have I learned?  Patience, persistence, looking, studying, analyzing, tenacity and willingness to leave what works and move on......
Oh......the painting is 20"x 20" on stretched canvas

I like this one a lot. Got great composition, lovely colors, is airy but have enough value/contrast. I have no idea how large it is, but it feels larger than your average paintings. Great work.
