It's Still Life - a new painting

I promised my aunt I would do a wine themed painting for her. This is going to be an 8 by 10 painting. I'm a bit intimidated with the idea of doing glass...but I know I just have to say to myself "self...just paint what you see just like every other still life painting." and then i say back "I know, you're so damn smart." and then i say back "i know, and you're just so good looking." and then i high five myself.

The drawing comes first (harder than it looks...circles are so hard to get right)


Then the first layer of paint:

Nice job, JUlie. I'll toast to that!
I'm loving my bell print that came in the Art RI basket. I have a little bell very much like it that I use to ring everyone to the table on holidays!
Fisherman's jacket looks good to me.
Can't wait to see what you do to make it better.
