    Wow Skylar this is wonderful, from the detail in the glass to the roughness of the books pages to the lovely flower.
    All so beautifully painted.

    All is a beautym Sklar! Incredible your handling of the pages, and that brandy has my mouth watering for a fine Spanish one! Itīs hard to find good brandy here at the end of the world.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Thank you all!!! It started from my looking at some old photos. I ran across some of Dal Windberg. That led me to review some of his works. A personal favorite has always been his snifter & rose - I think he called it "Irredescence", or something. Please look up his works, he did amazing things.

    Netta - Thank you for commenting. I have found still lifes surprisingly hard, considering most only consist of a few items. I try to do objects of diff textures to challenge myself. The Composition is also critical. They have to hang together in some sort of harmony, or juxtaposition.
