I tried another still life from Mary Gibilisco's site. Very involved. I didn't crop the picture very well it's a 16x20 oval piece of Masonite. I'd love some comments and critiques.

It is well painted.  Nice pink/gray palette.  But, seems too busy for a still life. My eyes are jumping all around it.  Hard to find a focal point.

Well done  :clap: :clap: :clap: Check the lower section of the vase again. I compared to the original and you have it too narrow and too many "bumps". Check also the shape  O0

Question;  Would this come under the heading of a person's style?

I know some would, as you come further away from a chosen focal point, have less and less detail and clarity.
