"Grape Glass"

Oil on 1/4" Masonite, 16"x20". Commission - NFS

This is part of the reason I haven't been posting consistently lately. It's a commission that's the largest painting I've done is quite some time (the most detailed one, also). I love how it turned out. I made one of my frame boxes like I did with "Pinot" about a month ago. I have one more commission to finish up and will post that late tomorrow. Stay tuned!

This looks really great Mike! I wish we were hanging it in our house. Someone at that party is going to be really lucky to take this home!

Michael, this is soooo nice. I'm a wino at heart and this is very special. Composition and colors are great.

Absolutely fantastic! As another wino, I'd also love to have this one in my house!

Beautiful work! How many hours did you spend on this? your pencil work is also impressive...

Hey thanks eveyone for your comments. I plan on revisiting this wine subject in the near future so keep your eyes peeled.

Jenedy, this took a little under 20 hours including building the oak frame and shooting the reference (the whole nine yards). I am finishing up another graphite portait and will post that late tonight.

Flawless! I know how tricky grapes can be, and you've captured them all perfectly. Keep up the good work!
