Wine with Cheese and Bread

Oil on Canvas. Approx 18"x18" SOLD

Another larger piece for the realism show at Susan Powell Fine Art. I loved painting this one because of the challenge of setting the glass and bottle back into the darkness to allow the localized light on the foreground objects. This is one of my favorites. I'm very happy with the outcome.

Very nice!
The wine bottle and the glass against the dark background add the classical beauty to the painting - just amazing!!

Always great Mike but the bread in this had me mesmerised (especially the one on the left)! Superb piece of painting and I'm so envious of the way you rendered that bread!!!!
