Eggplant with Lemon--Round 2

Oil on Artists' Panel, 6x6x.75--$75--Purchase from artist
Here I go again--fussing with backgrounds. I first did this painting in November. The background was greenish and DARK. The eggplant and its shadow "disappeared" due to the lack of contrast. Now, I've made the background more neutral, gave the lemon more texture, and messed with a few highlights. I officially consider this painting finis.
