Nice one!:D
not sure about the base of the vase. The lilacs are gorgeous and the painting has a real charm.:cat:

Gorgeous blues.....they vibrate. REALLY nicely defined leaves.
Personally,..I'd like to see a bit more color in the shadow,...and on the tablecloth. Perhaps some fallen petals.
Nice Job;))))-Scott

Scott...thank you for the feedback! It does not show well...but there is more color in the shadow area. Some petals might bring this all together. I did not want anything heavy to detract from the main event. *SMILE*

YES! It's a song! I love the way you've let the colors of the top run down into the bottom! I'm not too sure about the base of the pot either....feels a bit shaky. But the rest is a feast for the eyes. Makes me miss my lilac bush too.

i like the vase. it makes me think a child made it for someone special, like those gifts mothers get from their kids as they grow up.

Julia...I love all lilacs!! Even the white ones. *SMILE*

Aurora...what happened to your lilac bush? Thanks for commenting.

Jerry...it is the photo...it is not quite that dark.

orchidlover...close! My son gave it to me...but he did not make it. *LOL*
