Rookie Painter challenge

Here is the finished painting for the Rookie Painter Challenge. Jen had a really great photo for this round with good reflections and challenging colors. The red/orange is not really shoing up correctly.. apparently my camera is not good with those colors. It matches the original photo much better in real life.

5 by 7, acrylic on canvas

That's incredible! When I first began admiring your art work it was already truly amazing, and now somehow you're even better! The highlights in the handles alone are just blowing my mind right now. Bravo!
