    Thanks for posting this beautiful composition of cherries Joanne. Your handling of the reflective nature of the silver is terrific! In future still life pieces, you might consider slightly varying the value and temperature of the table top in order to enhance the sense of depth. For example, introducing a subtle nuance of gray-violet or tray-blue to the ochre. In this piece the rear edge may be commanding a bit too much attention. By varying this edge through softening or shared value, the focus could be placed more on the cherries and central metallic form. Also, consider softening or slightly diffusing the edges of forms (i.e. cherries) that merge into cast shadows. The edges on the shadow sides of the cherries are a bit overstated and too similar in quality, which causes them to appear a little static.
