Hi Jan..... This is very nice! I love the colors you've used and your blossoms are very well painted and beautifully delicate. It rather bothers me that the table seems to curve upwards, I'd prefer it to be flat and the branch of blossoms going up to the right tends to take my eyes out of the painting when I would like to stay awhile longer. I also thnk it would be a little more interesting if some of the blossoms were still buds and not all facing us. Your painting technique is wonderful.... the hint of warm color in the background is great... a little more attention to composition and you're a winner! Donna

Hi Jan! Love the painting, The colors are soft and inviting. I like the indication of depth where some flowers are further back than others. The thing that I would like to mention is that it would be normal for some of the flowers to bunch together so as to have clusters instead of just an array of singles. Apple blossoms naturally grow that way. Now I am wondering if you intended this with your linear arrangement of flowers?

I agree with the above comments

It reads a little flat right now...some depth will enhance it well

I like the soft feeling from the painting and finishing. I think that the linear arrangement may be giving it a little trouble though. ;)

Nice application,
If you added some highlight accents in the foliage, a nice sharp light green perhaps, you could manipulate the composition to balance it more.
