By all means- DO MORE LIKE THIS!! Anybody can do still life piles of apples- THIS IS ART>
With the apples in the glass- They seem almost too out of focus... I wish they were a little more crisp - same with this new one- I'd like to see a stronger edge on the apples. Make them POP off the canvas. Particularly the top apple. Realistic clarity in color and shape including -up into the stem area of the top apple... would add greatly to this particular painting. Use depth of color to create even more perspective shaping on the apples (darken the red on the edges)- See if you can make them look so real you want to eat one....
Would like the flowers in the vase to have the same
ight dark pink as the one in front- if not darker- Whats behind your focal point- the single flower- should not be lighter than the front object- It should almost look like the front object has a spot light on it compared to whats behind- your featuring a single flower closer to show the detail...in a better light. Behind should be darker rather than faded.
Your other work is so beautiful - what possessed you to make that yellow white and blue abstract one? It makes no use of your talent. I honestly don't like it at all- not when I know what you can paint like. This style isn't you. I do love the dramatic red and black apple abstract.... that style does work for you.
Hope I wasn't too harsh.

My right side could be a bit better balanced, but I love what you did on top with the yellows! Go ahead and experiment more with abstracts in my opinion.

The first apple image was a bit cliche (check out Cezanne's work, "Apples and Oranges"). The new apple work seems more fresh, imaginative, and better use of overall structure, not just attention to the apples, but the negative space as well. Much better. I'm a stickler for use of negative space.
Hope I wasn't to harsh. I do like your works, just not a personal fan of fruit still life.
