    Wow! I would call this one a ‘painter’s painting.” You have done a great job with carefully controlled values and chroma, and the composition is excellent. I especially like the tension between the palette knife and the top of the green marble. Excellent.

    *edit-“Painter’s Painting” meaning the technical aspects should be appreciated by other artists, just in case that wasn’t clear. ; – )

    This is one of the best examples of what daily painting is all about.
    I love this painting.

    Phenominal job on the Cat’s Eye marble and it’s translucent shadow! I love the dramatic lighting you use in your paintings.
