    Many congrats on a well deserved win :-)

    Congrats! A very intriguing image. I wondered what the vase was for, and now it makes sense that it was hand made by somebody. Very creative work (both the vase and the photo).

    Congrats. Easily the best. Well deserved.

    Thank you everyone for votes and comments. I wish I had photographed this vase before I painted it, but I didn't even think of it (???). My daughter, who made it in college, was going to throw it out long ago, but I liked the shape and kept it.(I have quite a lot of her ceramic pieces which are really lovely.)
The speckled background and the supporting surface are matching tiles which I found left out beside a construction site with a note that they were free for the taking. I also scored a white one.

    Well done, Jomari - this was a perfect choice for the theme and beautifully executed.

    More congrats jomai! Two top entries. Well done.

    I love the look and feel of this photo. Plenty of emotion. Kind of reminds me of that Pixar lamp. What is the speckly background? The black line where it meats the surface is a little distracting but not too much. Possibly have preferred the highlights a little brighter but it's still excellent. GL.

    Nice take on the theme - well executed. Might want to brighten the highlights just a little.

    Great capture, love the texture.

    Strange looking vase. Good use of lighting and desaturation.
In my TT

    I think this is wonderful. You have given this inanimate object so much feeling. Where did you find a vase like that, and what possible use does it have? Love it.

May 8, 2016
    I'm not exactly sure what all the objects are, but they sure convey a feeling of sadness. Well done, high in my TT.

May 8, 2016
    I love the mood that is captured by this image. My only slight regret is that the overall image was not a bit lighter. Nonetheless, high in my TT's.

    beautifully toned picture, simple and sombre
overall possibly a little dark (on my monitor) - especially the flower

    Made adjustments to colour?? I like how you've portayed the theme, good interpretation and gets my vote.

    Not from a boot sale 'that goose necked thing' is a failed student piece made by my daughter when she did ceramic studies. Not only did the neck sag, it's glaze had badly smudged, yellow, purple and white stripes. I spray painted it black for this.

May 6, 2016
