I hesitate to critique someone with your tremendous talent, but I have a few suggestions. The coloring is fantastic, as is the shading. Grandma would love this. The pieces were important to her, so I'd like to see them
a little larger and closer together. The teapot seems too far away from the rest, perhaps it could be moved down a bit towards the small bowl. I haven't seen the original pieces, but feel that your capture of them being used often is a good one. My only problem is that they could be more closely grouped. It's a very pretty piece, this was just my immediate response. You're a brilliant painter.I admire the way you did the trim and light.
What do you think?

The love for your grandma is so well captured in this still life of the traditional Greek crockery sets. It seems like every stroke of your paint brush is a mark of love which you have put from your heart on the painting canvas...I really love the simplicity of your artworks but with so much to feel and look at.:aww:

great job, lovely tea set. your grand mother would be so proud to see you did this in her memory and shows us how much you loved her and how much you hold her memories dear to your heart.
awesome.

and you added lovely flower patterns to the translucent blue bottle glass, it is perfectly done and painting metal in oils specially is very very tough so awesome job on that.
