my first oil painting

I guess this is really my first painting, period. Ok, well I painted two others just messing around before I had any idea what I was doing, but then I found DMP and got myself set up for real (with a little help from an anonymous benefactor to whom I am still enormously grateful for getting me started with a set of Geneva paints). So this is my first serious effort. I started sketching this summer, have been doing some urban sketching this fall, but otherwise I am a total newbie.

I would love constructive feedback. I painted this from life and don't have a photo of the original still life. I really would love criticism and suggestions (I'm done with this, but am eager to move on to another soon!)

Ok, now that I have uploaded this, I realize that this is a terrible photo of my painting. I will work on that!
