Autumn surely is the most inspiring season for painters.

Chinese lanterns, thistles and apples grown around the house at my kitchen window, which is facing a small park.

Okay I'm new to critiquing but I'm gonna give it a go because this piece is Beautiful! Im gonna start with what I like, then what I would change if it were mine. The rhythm here makes a lot of sense in your brush strokes. Precision is super, your drawing skills show and that is a huge plus to the over all painting. Dept and atmosphere are nice especially in the lights out side. You did a good job with colors, all the colors seem to be present in one way or another all over the canvas. I like how you put yellows on the white window seal, and the tree colors in the back repeat in the foreground. Fantastic! Some of the shadows up front could be worked a little bit but its fine any way. Really the only thing i would have done to if it were mine is contrast the roller object from the table to stand out a little more subtly from the table and shadows. As well as the side of the apple crate, im talking about the side of the crate with blues. It makes sense because of the texture... but for some reason it stands out from the other objects as not sharing the same source of light? Maybe I'm wrong, did you paint at different times of day light? Very nice piece over all Congrats!
