What can i see looking at this miracle? Prosit... (it's one of the two forms for "cheers" when we drink, from Latin, the other is "salute"; prosit means "may it do good", salute means "health") :);)
Looking at the glasses and the wines reflexes I notice though that You consider red wine only. You put a great noble red wine aside to a cheap muddy white .... :D

Rick,
DOUBLE OMG! This is one of the most
breathtaking still life's that I have had
the occasion of viewing. Wonderful!
Those grapes appear so lifelike that I
feel as if I could sample them. :)

Just as I suggested in a WIP thread: it┤s simply amazing! The reflections really set this one off from your others, which are masterpieces in their own right.

Salud! (the Spanish version of "cheers", which literally in English is "health")

Not over here, my dear Rick. Even if I prefer red wine too, considering the meal You need white wines too; I've a list of gorgeous ones which in many cases comes from vines (as it is is the case for red ones) which cannot be grown anywhere else then in their traditional zones. For number of vines (thus potential of development) Italy is far away from any competitor (there's also some vine surviving from the Roman Empire age).

Wonderful work, Rick. Your eye for realism is fantastic. I looked at your grape tutorial in the other forum and wondered a few things. I have a hard time blending and was curious about your technique. Knowing they change as you work, what are your loading, thinners, and pressure settings? Also do you use instant dry or auto clean? You also appear to work on a smooth canvas.

I hope you don't mind the inquisition. I'm quite inspired by your work.

I very much look forward to your next piece.

Thanks,

Dennis

it's an amazing painting !
but for sure there are some very good (and nice looking) white wines (just thinking for exemple to some white Meursault that you can even keep long years before drink it...)

Congrats on your superb work! :D

Congratulations! This turned out brilliantly! I love that it has the highly realistic feel, yet, clearly like a painting as well. The technique is quite oblique, I mean, it's tough to define what kind of paint it is, which makes it also fascinating.

Great, great, work and very inspiring, too! Very well done! :)

Dear Rick, almost find it hard to look at! it is so real as to be , well, unreal! mystical sort of, love the simple background to stage the subjects, each one told to stand here or stand there, even the cold glass looks alive, like its holding its breath,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Spectacular work Rick, and as they would say in Italy, Chin Chin and to all of our chins. I added the last part. Lol. :) In our part of the world near Paso Robles, I bet that they could use such quality as this in an up and coming wine region. Check out the Paso Robles wineries on google if you are interested.
